Lyle Lovett & His Large Band at Township Auditorium

Why see Lyle Lovett & His Large Band?

Catch Country Legend Lyle Lovett on tour

Four-time Grammy Award Winner Lyle Lovett is known for his intelligent Western Swing-tinged Country Music. Like the great songwriters of the late 70's, in the class of Randy Newman and Guy Clarke, Lovett never did just fit into one genre. His witty lyrics and eclectic mix of sounds ranging from folk to big band swing form an unforgettable catalogue of songs and although he emerged in the 80's, this musical chameleon is still a fearless innovator in the Country world to this day.

Catch him as he heads out on a tour of the States, accompanied by his Large Band, a backing section aptly named after the smash hit 1989 album that hit No. 10 on the Country Charts, certified gold in the US and Canada. When on stage, Lovett channels the best of the Americana tradition in his own unique way. His distinctive voice intermingles with wry wordplay, moving dextrously from upbeat Country bangers like Cow Boy Man to the softer, bittersweet ballads he is synonymous with.

Lyle charmed us all

Lyle and the Large Band were pure joy from beginning to end! A magical evening and a special thank you to all of them for being so generous with their time. Our concert ran 3 hours, of nothing but fabulous! I would definitely come again! ... Read more

Lovett/Keen October 25 '18 Knight's Theater

I'm surprised not to see even a word mentioned about the above concert anywhere in the Charlotte media. It was a wonderful night in front of what appeared to be a full house. None other than Kyle Petty showed up to play an original song entitled "Whatever Happened to the TV Cowboys" (or something like that). He has a smooth, rich voice, James Taylor with a little more twang. REK brought the house down with "Merry Christmas from the Family," and he gave credit to local radio jocks John Boy and Billy for the fame of that song. He later played my personal favorite, "I'm Coming Home," with Lyle on guitar and vocal harmonies. I'm impressed with REK for just stepping onto the stage with LL, who is one of the most accomplished musicians in the world. LL had a number of crowd pleasers but the best was probably "If I Had A Boat." And they gave us a 2.5 hour show! Talk about bang for the buck! If you get a chance and are a fan of this genre, don't miss them when they come your way. ... Read more

Outstanding performance!

We saw Lyle Lovett and his Large Band last night at the Cerritos Center for Performing Arts in Cerritos, CA last night. What a versatile, excellent two and a half hour show it was! Fourteen different musicians, diverse songs, heart-felt and funny revelations; Lyle delivers big time! If you get the opportunity to see the band, don't hesitate. Even though we're not followers, his excellence as a performer and all-inclusive support of his highly talented fellow musicians make him a bluegrass legend! ... Read more
