The Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, which survived the recent wildfires with its main theater building intact, still had to cancel several shows in the aftermath and cleanup after the blazes began to subside.
Now, the center is set to reopen Monday, and tickets for four new shows go on sale online at 10 a.m. Friday at lutherburbankcenter.org. Until the center’s box office reopens Monday, tickets are available online only, and internet fees will be waived.
The new shows are:
Nashville singer-songwriter Easton Corbin, 8 p.m. Dec. 17. $35-$49.
Grammy-winning Mississippi rock band 3 Doors Down, 8 p.m. Jan. 23. $49-$69.
Iconic crooner Johnny Mathis, 7 p.m. Feb. 15. $79-$129.
Ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro, 8 p.m. Feb. 24. $35-$49.
Although the center’s main building was spared, the fire destroyed approximately 30,000 square feet of the Center’s 140,000-square foot campus.
Facilities lost include: at two-story classroom building, home to Anova Center for Education; the East Auditorium, home to North Bay Stage Company; the LBC’s storage and workshop building, including storage for Roustabout Theatre.
The fire also significantly damaged the center’s sculpture garden, including monumental old-growth redwood sculptures by renowned local artist Bruce Johnson.
