Janis Ian: Last North American Tour – Celebrating Our Years Together

Sat, Oct 22
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Admission starts at: $29
Riviera Theatre • 67 Webster Street, North Tonawanda, 14120

Description

Grammy-winning recording artist, songwriter, and musician Janis Ian brings her “Celebrating Our Years Together” tour to the Riviera Theatre. The months-long run, which Ian is calling her “final tour of the U.S.,” follows the January release of “The Light at the End of the Line”—her “last solo studio album” and first album of new material in fifteen years.

Now in her fifth decade of writing songs and performing, Janis Ian received her most recent Grammy nomination in 2016, making a total of 10 nominations over the years in 8 categories! (She lost to President Jimmy Carter.) Her last Grammy Award, presented at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, was for Best Spoken Word Album for her audiobook “Society’s Child” (Audible.com). She had stiff competition — President Bill Clinton, First Lady Michelle Obama, Rachel Maddow, and Ellen DeGeneres. When she won, she sincerely considered it to be a “stunning upset.” With her inimitable sense of humor, she went on to say “There must be a joke in here somewhere. An ex-president, a First Lady, and three lesbians go into a bar…”

On a more serious note, she said, “We artists are the last alchemists, pulling your dreams, your hopes, your deepest desires out of thin air, and turning them into something you can hear and play, and sing… We don’t sell music. We sell dreams.”

2016 marked a year of anniversaries for Janis. She wrote “Society’s Child”, her first hit, fifty years ago, at the age of fourteen. Some months later, in collaboration with producer Shadow Morton (The New York Dolls, The Shangri-las, “In a gadda da vida” with Iron Butterfly), she recorded “Society’s Child” and then her first album, Grammy nominee Janis Ian. It also marks forty years since she received two Grammys for her work on “At Seventeen” and Between the Lines. Read Janis’ full biography here.
