Kenny Loggins to perform with the Boston Pops
It may be the soft-rock legend’s only New England show this year, but Kenny Loggins is sure to make it count as he joins the Boston Pops for a very special concert at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket, Rhode Island on Saturday, September 4. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $35 to $100, are now on sale through pawsox.com. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Hasbro Children’s Hospital.
The concert is a contunation of the the Boston Pops’ 125th season celebration and will also serve as the kick off for the 12th Annual Pawtucket Arts Festival. The concert will also mark the first time that the full orchestra complement has ever performed in a baseball stadium, as well as the first time the Boston Pops have performed an outdoor concert in the Providence area.
“I can’t think of a better marriage between the worlds of music and sports than that between America’s Orchestra and America’s favorite pastime,” said Boston Pops Conductor Keith Lockhart in a press release. “The concert at McCoy Stadium on September 4, along with the Pops concert on the Boston Common later in September, gives us a chance to bring the Boston Pops 125th celebration to a wider live audience throughout the region-and it’s icing on the cake to have an opportunity to perform with the legendary Kenny Loggins in Pawtucket.”
“I’m extremely excited and proud to be associated with The Boston Pops,” added Loggins. “It is a true pleasure to work with such a prestigious and talented orchestra. I am very much looking forward to having the honor of performing with them.”
Fans can expect to hear hits like “Footloose”, “I’m Alright” and also songs from Loggins’ 2009 cover album, All Join In. His musical career has lasted fifty fears, so his setlist’s possibilities are plentiful.
On September 19, Loggins will be honored at the 16th Annual Temecula Valley International Film & Music Festival in Southern California, when he receives the Outstanding Career Achievement Award in Music. Past recipients of the award include Earth, Wind & Fire, Smokey Robinson, Dionne Warwick and Ray Charles.
