A trio of Tuesday concert announcements should take some of the sting out of summer’s end.
Toronto R&B star The Weeknd, trippy jazz outfit The Bad Plus, and singer-songwriter Adam Cohen will all be taking their talents to Winnipeg stages this fall.
First up: The Weeknd, otherwise known as Abel Tesfaye, who became a sensation after releasing tunes on YouTube in 2010. He will roll into the Burton Cummings Theatre on Monday, Sept. 24. Tickets are $29.50 and $38.50 plus taxes, and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday from Livenation.com.
On Oct. 4, Jazz Winnipeg is bringing in progressive piano trio The Bad Plus and Quebec’s The Lost Fingers to the West End Cultural Centre to jazz up their fall concert session. Tickets for that show are $25 and go on sale at 11 a.m. on Friday at JazzWinnipeg.com, over the phone at 989-4656, or at the Jazz Winnipeg or West End Cultural Centre offices.
Finally, after earning raves at the Winnipeg Folk Festival this year, Montreal’s Cohen – yes, he is Leonard Cohen’s son – will roll into the West End Cultural Centre on Oct. 23.
Tickets for that gig are $30 plus taxes, and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketmaster.ca and all Ticketmaster locations, Unionevents.com and Music Trader.
