John Hiatt coming to Jannus Live
Have you caught your breath from last weekend's first round of shows at the renovated Jannus Live? If not, no worries -- you've got a month before the next show comes to town.
Jannus Live's concert schedule is still a mystery, but the next act to perform there will be John Hiatt on April 30, according to venue officials. Ticket info isn't available on the Jannus Live Web site or on Hiatt's own site, but according to Ticketmaster, they went onsale Friday for $27.50. Click here for details.
The legendary alt-blues-rock singer-songwriter is no stranger to the Jannus stage, having played there many times over the years, most recently in 2005 with the North Mississippi Allstars. And the ticket price is a good sign, too -- day-of tickets to that 2005 show were $30.
So there you have it -- arguably the first Jannus Live show that really feels like a Jannus Landing show. If you were waiting for a reason to compare and contrast the two venues, this might be it.
