ANDREW BIRD COMING TO CITI PERFORMING ARTS CENTER WANG THEATRE ON APRIL 9

TICKETS ON SALE SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2015 AT 10:00AM

Boston, MA– MSG Entertainment, Citi Performing Arts Center, and Live Nation announced today that Andrew Bird will take the Wang Theatre stage on Saturday, April 9, 2016 at 7:30PM. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Saturday, December 5, 2015 at 10:00AM.

Chicago based singer-songwriter Andrew Bird began to play the violin at age 4, learning to play Bach and Mozart by ear. Bird’s early work, which echoed gypsy jazz and traditional folk, has led to his current sound, which mixes rock with more broad compositions. His years of solo song-craft have now enabled him to produce a sound that is uniquely his own.

Following a handful of solo performances this winter, Bird will embark on a full-band world tour this spring. The trek, which runs from late March through early May, features dates across Europe and North America, including stops in Boston, Montreal, Minneapolis, London and Amsterdam. $1 for every ticket sold will be donated to organizations working to end gun violence to build safer communities.
