You know it's going to be an epic concert when Slash, one of the greatest rock 'n' roll guitarists known to mankind, is your opening act. Only Aerosmith, the best-selling rock band of all time, could top the excitement generated by seeing the legendary Guns N' Roses ax-man jam with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Aerosmith's legendary vocalist Steven Tyler will keep the crowds cheering (and scarves fluttering) as he belts out hit after hit, from "Dream On" to "Janie's Got a Gun" to "Love in an Elevator" and many more, with Joe Perry on lead guitar. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime show as these music gods roll into Concord Pavilion on their Let Rock Rule tour. Learn More
Dining options are pretty good near the Paramount finally. The Bar service inside is a bit slow when there are so many spectators, so be patient.Il Divo -- A Musical Affair: The Greatest Songs of Broadway Live dining • Apr 07 2014 star this tip starred

“[Sara Buechner] played with fire and sparkle, her tone crisp and forceful. The big crowd gave her a long, heartfelt standing ovation.” —Buffalo News
Join Oakland East Bay Symphony for opening night as they celebrate the rich, vibrant tradition of American music. They’ll start with the captivating swing of Duke Ellington’s hopeful, forward-looking New World A-Comin’, with its vision of a post-World War II country in which oppression and racism no longer exist. The bubbly exuberance of Gershwin’s An American in Paris captures the delight and wonder of an American visitor taking in the sights and sounds of Paris for the first time.
They’re pleased to bring back the extraordinary pianist Sara Buechner for a performance of Bernstein’s searching “Age of Anxiety,” an unusual symphony featuring solo piano. Sara’s powerful performance with OEBS in 2009 was a highlight of that season.
The concert also pays tribute to our neighbors south-of-the-border with Alberto Ginastera’s wildly popular Estancia, a lively work incorporating themes from Argentinean cowboy music.
Audiences are invited to attend a pre-concert talk at 7:00pm.
