by Gerald Sorokin | Oct 09, 2015

Matisyahu Returns to Iowa City!


Saturday, October 31, 7:00 pm, Englert TheatreSpecial Discount for Hillel Students: $25 Meet & Greet for Hillel Students after the Performance!
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of his breakthrough album, Live at Stubb’s, Matisyahu has taken a new look at the music that first made his reputation in Live at Stubb’s III: A 10-Year Journey. In two stripped-back sit-down shows in March of 2015, Matisyahu performed new arrangements of his early reggae hits from the original album, along with a selection of later favorites up through Akeda. This tour reconnects Matisyahu with long-time musical collaborators and friends from his early touring days, including Live at Stubb’s guitarist Aaron Dugan. Matisyahu and his band will present an evening of stripped-back arrangements highlighting the music that launched his career while taking fans of all ages on a journey through the evolution of Live at Stubb’s to his most recent release Akeda.

To obtain discounted tickets, contact Hillel by phone (319-338-0778) or e-mail.

For more information on the concert, contact the Englert.
