And many, many more.
“This is, quite simply, the greatest season we’ve presented,” claims Cal Poly Arts director Steve Lerian. “I don’t typically make bold statements like that, but our 2017-18 season features many performances that we’ve been trying to present for years – legendary artists and shows that will surely pack the PAC and cause audiences to leap to their feet with cheers and applause. With artists of this magnitude, some performances may even sell out through subscriptions alone, so to ensure you get in, you may want to put four or more shows together and subscribe. It’s that big!”
