Des Moines Civic Center

June 27 - July 15, 2018

A true cultural phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton is changing the face of the modern musical. An exhilarating historical epic, that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., this record-breaking Broadway musical traces the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's most important (and colorful) historical figures.

June 5, 2018

Former Talking Heads frontman and all-around excellent human David Byrne graces us with an ambitious new tour in support of his newest record American Utopia, his first solo release in 14 years. In typical Byrne style, expect a spectacle that combines the auteur's musicianship, artistry, and delightfully off-beat nature as he presents favorites old and new for this highly anticipated new era.

For some, Jackson Browne is a definitive voice of the sun-soaked, mellow Southern California vibe that emanated from Laurel Canyon and spread far beyond in the mid 60s and 70s. Catch him as he tours stripped down and unplugged, with just an acoustic guitar and a magnificent back catalogue to choose from, this is an evening not to be missed!
