Rock Crooner Chris Isaak Returns to Singletary Center

Published: Nov 13, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 13, 2012) — Almost two years after his first sold out concert at University of Kentucky Singletary Center for the Arts, the popular rocker and actor Chris Isaak returns to rock the Bluegrass stage. Isaak is set to captivate audiences again at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17.

 

From the beginning, Isaak has earned his good luck the hard way, by consistently delivering excellent work, both on stage and in the studio with a series of accomplished albums. He has released numerous albums including "Silvertone" (1985), "Chris Isaak" (1986), "Heart Shaped World" (1989), "San Francisco Day" (1993), "Forever Blue" (1995), the largely acoustic "Baja Sessions" (1996), "Speak of the Devil" (1998), "Always Got Tonight" (2002), the seasonal-themed "Christmas, the Best of Chris Isaak" compilation (2006) and "Mr. Lucky" (2009).

 

Throughout his impressive recording career, starting with his debut album to his latest effort, Isaak has tunefully and artfully explored the good, the bad and the ugly of love, as well as other matters of profound human interest. He has done so with an abiding respect for popular music’s past, but at the same time with clear and vital passion for here and now.

 

In between all those album and tours, Isaak has also used his famously sly, self-deprecating wit and matinee idol looks to enjoy a whole second life onscreen. He has appeared in numerous films including, "Married to the Mob," "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me,"  "Little Buddha," "Silence of the Lambs," "That Thing You Do!" and "A Dirty Shame." In addition to high profile guest parts on a special Super Bowl episode of Friends and the Emmy-winning HBO miniseries, "From The Earth To The Moon," Isaak starred in his own acclaimed Showtime musical comedy series, "The Chris Isaak Show," from 2001-2004, which showcased many of his considerable talents as a comedian and musician.

 

Though Isaak confesses that he can be very happy just surfing or drawing during his down time (he did all the artwork for his last album), at heart, he is still that same kid from Stockton, Calif., who grew up decidedly working class and to this day he has the outstanding work ethic to show for it.

 

To listen to Isaak perform "Think of Tomorrow" and watch the official music video, visit his website at www.chrisisaak.com/media/videos/15721/40391.

 

Tickets are on sale now for the Chris Isaak concert and range in price from $37 to $55 depending on seat location. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Singletary Center ticket office at 859-257-4929, visiting online at www.scfatickets.com, or in person at the venue.

 

A part of the UK College of Fine Arts, the Singletary Center for the Arts presents and hosts around 400 artistic, cultural and educational events annually for the university community, Lexington community and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
