Tinariwen

Live at Benaroya Hall >

These extraordinary guitar-poets from the southern Sahara desert blend blues, rock and pop with Berber and Arabic influences to create an altogether hypnotic concert experience. A bass chord and a chorus of male voices open the dance, followed by youyous, cries and handclaps. The powerful melodies of Tinariwen have become the soundtrack for a whole generation of exiled Touareg youth living in Algeria and Libya. Their latest album, Elwan (2017), continues this theme. While Tinariwen were criss-crossing the globe on their recent triumphant tours, the frontiers that encircle their desert home were closing and forcing them into exile to record this album.


WATCH: Tinariwen performs "Sastanàqqàm" from the album Elwan (2017).

An Intimate Evening with David Foster

Live at Benaroya Hall >

Superstar music producer David Foster brings his Hitman Tour to Benaroya Hall for one night only. For his remarkable work, Foster has won 16 Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe, and has racked up three Oscar nominations for “Best Original Song.” He has also earned a reputation as a keen spotter of new talent, playing a key role in the discovery and career launches of Celine Dion, Josh Groban and Michael Bublé.

Now one of the biggest musical forces of our time hits the Benaroya Hall stage for a retrospective of his legendary career. Foster will perform songs that he wrote or produced from his four decades of hits, including Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me,” The Bodyguard original soundtrack, Chicago’s “You’re the Inspiration,” Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up,” Michael Buble’s “Home” and many more.
