MAX WEINBERG’S JUKEBOX
LANDIS THEATER // 8 P.M. SATURDAY, NOV. 18
WHO IS HE: Max Weinberg is best known as the drummer of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, taking over behind the kit in 1975 touring and playing on virtually all of the biggest hits including “Born to Run,” “Thunder Road,” “Born in the USA,” “Dancing in the Dark,” “Badlands” and “Hungry Heart.” In addition to his work with Springsteen, Weinberg served as Conan O’Brien’s bandleader for 17 years, played drums on Meatloaf’s 1977 album “Bat Out of Hell” and recorded on Southside Johnny’s “Hearts of Stone” and “Better Days” albums. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Although he’s grown accustomed to performing in front of stadiums full of screaming fans on a nightly basis with Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Max Weinberg will be taking things in the opposite direction on his current Jukebox tour, performing in an intimate setting. The concept of the tour is one in which the fans will get to interact with the band and select what songs are played from a list of over 200 which appear on a video screen. Favorites from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and of course Springsteen will all be on the menu as concertgoers get to enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity to have Weinberg take their requests as if it were a private party.
SHOW INFO: Tickets are $35, $40 and $45.
