One of the summer's hottest tours rolls into the Greek Theatre with a line-up of good time rock and pop -- and this is your chance to get pre-sale tickets before they sell out. Any one of these acts would be a treat to see on their own, but put the three together and you've got a concert to remember. Multi-platinum-selling pop rockers Goo Goo Dolls are known for such huge '90s hits as "Iris," "Name," "Black Balloon" and "Slide." Chris Daughtry was one of the most successful American Idol finalists to compete on the show. His baldheaded boldness and modern rock style have earned him a legion of fans, and his star continues to rise. Also on the bill, performing an acoustic set, are Plain White T's ("Hey There Delilah," "Rhythm of Love"). Learn More

“Return to Forever devastated the landscape. It transformed me. I haven’t recovered yet.” —Sting
“I’ve seen many shows in my years on this planet, but none I enjoyed more than this.” —JazzTimes, about Return to Forever
Return to Forever IV is a jazz fusion group founded and led by keyboardist Chick Corea. Along with Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return to Forever is often cited as one of the core groups of the jazz-fusion movement of the 1970s. Several musicians, including Clarke, Flora Purim, Airto Moreira and Al Di Meola, first came to prominence through their performances on Return to Forever’s albums.
Their first album, titled simply Return to Forever, was recorded for ECM Records in 1972 and was initially released only in Europe. This album featured Corea’s now famous compositions “Crystal Silence” and “La Fiesta.” Shortly afterwards, Corea, Airto, Clarke and Tony Williams formed the band for Stan Getz’s album Captain Marvel (1972), which featured Corea’s compositions- including some from the first and second Return to Forever albums. Their second album, Light as a Feather (1973), was released by Polydor and included the song “Spain,” which also became quite well-known.
From February 2011, the group commences a world tour. The lineup, billed as Return to Forever IV, is Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Lenny White, Frank Gambale and Jean-Luc Ponty.
