with special guests Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley
Two-time Grammy nominee, Tommy Emmanuel, one of Australia's most respected musicians, returns to the Pikes Peak Center for the Performing Arts for one night only Sunday, June 10, 2018. The legendary guitarist has a professional career that spans five decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians throughout the world.
Tickets, which range in price from $32 to $47, plus applicable fees, will go on sale Friday, March 23. They will be available at the Pikes Peak Center box office, PikesPeakCenter.com, AXS.com, or by phone at (719) 520-SHOW. Tickets can also be purchased at The Broadmoor World Arena box office or BroadmoorWorldArena.com.
Emmanuel has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. His unique style - he calls it "finger style" - is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays piano, using all ten fingers. Rather than using a band for melody, rhythm, bass, and drums, Emmanuel plays those parts - and more - on one guitar.
Emmanuel's catalogue includes more than 20 musical recordings running the gamut of solos, duets, ensembles, cover tunes, and originals, in both electric and acoustic guitar. At 54, performing live is more important to him than ever; he tours constantly, averaging more than 300 concerts a year for the last five years. Guitar players of all levels come to his shows to watch the magic hands of the 'guitar Wizard of Oz,' but his appeal goes far beyond musicians. His live shows are known for their humor, passion, and infectious joy.
Emmanuel’s year has been fueled by a successful world tour, a new album, a PBS TV special, and, most recently, he received the CMA Global Country Artist of the Year Award. The award, presented to Emmanuel by country star Keith Urban during the CMA’s Global Artist Party at the Billboard Country Music Summit in Nashville, Tennessee, recognizes outstanding achievement by an artist who has furthered country music’s popularity and brought attention to the genre in a foreign territory.
