Season tickets are ready to be sold to the general public for the upcoming Cheyenne Civic Center 2010-11 season, which will be highlighted by eight shows, including scheduled performances by Michael Bolton and Air Supply, along with several other music-themed shows including STOMP, Bowfire, and a farewell performance by Riverdance. Those who bought season ticket packages to last season’s nine shows (five which sold out) were given first dibs at the beginning of the month. Those who want to buy single performance tickets must wait until later in the summer (after mid-August) to purchase, according to Box Office Manager Vicki Wilkins. I’ve been a volunteer usher for the Cheyenne Civic Center since the 2004-05 season, but what I’m writing is my own observations.
Michael Bolton Is to Open the Cheyenne Civic Center 2010-11 Season
Bolton is scheduled to be in Wyoming’s capital city to open the 29th season of this entertainment venue (that holds just under 1,500 seats) on Saturday Night, October 2, at 730 pm. He’ll be on his One World One Love tour. According to his Wikipedia discography, the crooner has 9 Number 1 American singles and has been releasing albums since 1975. Then the trash can- and lid-banging musical troupe STOMP will be at the Cheyenne Civic Center for two shows, November 2 and 3, to close out the 2010 half of the season.
The first show for 2011 will see the duo Air Supply in town on February 11. This Aussie classic pop rock act is known for such Adult Contemporary hits like Lost in Love,The One That You Love, and Even the Nights Are Better, but have been actively recording new albums, including their just-released Mumbo Jumbo. On February 25, the musical Wizard of Oz will be the first of two musicals appearing that have graced Broadway as Cats is scheduled to be at the Cheyenne Civic Center on April 20. Before that, three 1950s-60s prominent groups (The Tokens, The Diamonds, and Danny and the Juniors) will perform on March 4 in their show called Forever Doo-Wop. And the violin-playing Bowfire will interpret various music on March 18 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. The Cheyenne Civic Center season will close out its 2010-11 season on May 10 with a farewell performance by Riverdance.
Season ticket packages range from 5-8 shows. Additionally, volunteer usher trainings are scheduled to be held in August. For more information about season ticket purchases, go to the Cheyenne Civic Center website here.
