Feb 11 , 2018 Doors: 1:30pm Show: 2:00PM
We first came to know him through the global smash "World Without Love" as one-half of the British Invasion duo Peter & Gordon. He returns in "Peter Asher: A Musical Memoir of the 60s and Beyond," which brings a multimedia experience to the stage, hosted by the two-time GRAMMY® winner for Producer Of The Year. Asher moved effortlessly from his role with Peter & Gordon to Music Executive with the Beatles’ Apple Records, then to producer and manager, handling the careers of James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, and a host of others. Now, finally, Asher tells first hand his tales from the eye of the cultural hurricane in this intimate evening. Featuring film footage and photos from Asher’s considerable personal archive, brought to life with a storyteller’s gift, transporting audiences back to the heart of 60s popular culture. The evening is filled with the music of Peter & Gordon, including "I Go to Pieces," "True Love Ways," and "Lady Godiva." Asher presents these timeless classics along with other old favorites from that golden era. The show brings the audience through the earliest days of Asher’s journey all the way to the present day, and projects such as the Peter Asher-produced album by Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, The Long Awaited Album, released Sept. 22, 2017. Asher will also take the audience behind the curtain of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, where he inducted two old friends, the Rolling Stones’ first manager Andrew Loog Oldham and the Beatles’ Manager Brian Epstein. His work on soundtracks ("Amazing Spider-Man 2," “Man Of Steel,” “Rush.”, etc), alongside the legendary Hans Zimmer, is touched on also, as well as the 2017 "Hans Zimmer Live!" tour of the USA and Europe that Asher directed. Now in its seventh year, “Memoir” continues to thrill, as the reviews attest.
