Aaron Neville Is Bringing His Christmas Concert To Margaritaville
New Orleans native and R&B superstar Aaron Neville will grace the Margaritaville stage with his one-of-a-kind Christmas concert on Saturday December 3, 2016. He is set to perform some new songs off of his most recent album 'Apache,' as well as his most famous hits, and songs from his ‘Soulful Christmas’ and ‘Christmas Prayer’ albums.
A press release from Margaritaville introduces us to the singer, and highlights some of his illustrious career, as well as his new album:
56 years into his recording career, Aaron Neville is finding new ways to tell it like it is. “I call it ‘the other side of Aaron’,” says the singer, talking about his new album, Apache, “because people know me from doing the ballads and New Orleans stuff. Here, they’re getting another feel of Aaron.” While the record certainly touches on the mystic gumbo of the greatest Neville Brothers albums, and brings in the sheer sweetness of his most famous solo recordings, Apache diverges toward a third path we’ve never quite heard from him in the studio — one based in the hard-edged R&B of the pre-disco 1970s. You could make a case that it’s the funkiest album of his career, and there’s certainly no argument that it’s the most personal, since it marks the first time he’s co-written an entire album’s worth of material.
Tickets start at $40 and go on sale Friday, September 16, at 10am via Ticketmaster. Tickets are also available at the Margaritaville Retail Store.
