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

Quotes & Highlights
Read the program notes for Elijah.
The San Francisco Choral Society, one of the most accomplished choruses in the Bay Area, presents Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn, considered to be his very best work. Many believe Elijah to be one of greatest oratorios of all time.
This is the dramatic story of the prophet Elijah as he summons the people to righteousness, struggles against those worshipping false idols and performs miracles. The oratorio concludes with Elijah rising to heaven in a fiery chariot.
The performance features world renowned bass/baritone Rod Gilfry as Elijah, known for his brilliant work as Stanley Kowalski in the San Francisco’s Opera’s world-premiere of A Streetcar Named Desire.
