Plymouth, MA – Spectacle Management is proud to present An Acoustic Evening with John Hiatt at Plymouth Memorial Hall on Saturday, April 27 at 8pm. Almost forty-five years after the release of his debut album, John Hiatt remains one of America’s most respected and influential singer-songwriters thanks to songs such as “Cry Love,” “Perfectly Good Guitar,” “Feels Like Rain,” “Have A Little Faith in Me,” and many more. John Hiatt’s songs have been covered by artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt (“Thing Called Love”), Buddy Guy, Emmylou Harris, Ronnie Milsap, Iggy Pop, the Neville Brothers, Rosanne Cash (the #1 country hit, “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”), the Jeff Healey Band (“Angel Eyes”), Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, and Linda Ronstadt. Tickets for An Acoustic Evening with John Hiatt at Plymouth Memorial Hall are $39-$79, and go on sale Friday, March 1, at 10:00 am at www.memorialhall.com, or by calling 1-(800) 657- 8774.
As the Los Angeles Times once wrote, “[Hiatt] writes the funniest sad songs – and the saddest funny songs – of just about anybody alive.” He earned a Grammy nomination for his album Crossing Muddy Waters, and composed the title track of the Grammy-winning collaboration between B.B. King and Eric Clapton, Riding with The King. In 2007, John Hiatt was honored with his own star on Nashville’s Walk of Fame, a legacy that was cemented even further with a pair of accolades in the fall of 2008: the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Songwriting in September, and his October induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
With seven solo albums already under his belt, Hiatt’s A&M debut, Bring the Family (1987), was his breakthrough. His rootsy, rock-country-blues fusion – performed with guitarist Ry Cooder, bassist Nick Lowe, and drummer Jim Keltner – was Hiatt’s first charted effort, and he was subsequently named Best Male Vocalist in Rolling Stone’s annual Critics Poll. Bonnie Raitt would later cover the album’s “Thing Called Love” on her multiplatinum smash, Nick of Time, and fan favorites “Memphis In The Meantime” and “Have A Little Faith In Me” have been covered by artists from Joe Cocker and Delbert McClinton to Jewel.

PLYMOUTH MEMORIAL HALL
This 1,300-seat venue was erected in 1924 and dedicated in 1926 to Plymouth residents who had served. Formally the site of the Hedge house, Plymouth Memorial Hall has seen many events in its many decades of operation, from big name acts such as Twisted Sister, Lifehouse, Bob Dylan, and Cage Titans, to smaller events such as dance competitions, wrestling events, and tribute bands. The Hall has been used for weddings and receptions, in addition to local high school graduations and the Police Academy graduation. The Plymouth Philharmonic calls Memorial Hall home for their shows throughout the year. In 2004, Memorial Hall underwent a $7M renovation to restore the space, as well as to add a few upgrades. www.memorialhall.com
