Those jonesing for a big name concert will get their fix this summer.
Grammy-winner Norah Jones is coming to Juneau. The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council teased a July 31 Centennial Hall show with Instagram posts Monday and Tuesday.
“We’re ecstatic,” said Meghan Chambers, program director for the JAHC. “We feel very lucky that she’s coming here, and we get to work with her and one of the largest promoters in the United States.”
She said it goes to show how important the arts are to Juneau, and how that support of the arts is visible on a national level.
The concert, which is part of a Northwest jaunt that includes Vancouver and Anchorage as well as the capital city, will be presented by Live Nation.
Live Nation, a live entertainment company responsible for more than 30,000 shows and 100 festivals each year, will be working with JAHC and Centennial Hall to produce the event, Chambers said.
Tickets are not yet on sale, but they will be soon. Tickets for the all-ages show will cost between $59.50 and $99.50, according to Jones’ website.
JAHC and KTOO members will have access to tickets starting Thursday, Jan. 31, and sales will open to the general public Friday, Feb. 1.
There will be a link to purchase tickets on the JAHC’s website, JAHC.org.
