One of the world’s most revered saxophonists will be making Yuletide bright this holiday season, as multi-million selling instrumentalist Kenny G announces The Miracles Holiday & Hits Tour 2017. On this highly-anticipated holiday tour, Kenny G will perform some of his greatest hits, including songs from his 1994 smash album Miracles: The Holiday Album, which ranks as one of the most successful holiday albums ever – with over eight million copies sold. The tour begins on November 2nd in Ridgefield, CT at the Ridgefield Playhouse, and will continue through December 18th where it wraps at the Strand Capitol in York, PA.
“Performing the classic holiday songs is such a pleasure for me and the band,” says Kenny. “I’m asked year round to play songs from my Miracles Holiday album and even in July we sometimes throw in a classic holiday song. We can’t wait to get on the road in November to bring the sound of the holiday season to our wonderful fans. We hope everyone will come out and join us to celebrate.”
Tickets go on sale to the general public on July 28th at 10 am local time. Artist pre-sale tickets available beginning Thursday, July 27th for select dates with the password HOLIDAYS.
