Birmingham, Ala. – In partnership with Saturn and The Bowery Presents: South, the 11th year of the Sunday afternoon concert series will continue on October 11 with a highly anticipated performance by Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe on their Fantastic Fall Tour with an opening performance by local Chad Fisher.
Fresh off The Rolling Stones “Zip Code Tour,” Karl Denson’s Fantastic Fall Tour has embarked on a nationwide run that will give new and old fans the chance to experience what is regarded as one of the “best live bands on the planet.” Karl Denson’s band, The Tiny Universe, is a prolific touring juggernaut that performs over 150 shows annually. Denson himself is an acclaimed and highly in-demand saxophonist and songwriter who first came to national attention as a member of Lenny Kravitz’s “Let Love Rule” group.
Chad Fisher, a Birmingham native, will bring his soulful sounds to open the afternoon. Fisher and his all-star band have performed live with The Temptations and are currently on tour with St. Paul and the Broken Bones. They can also be heard on Jason Isbell’s latest album “Live from Alabama.”
Admission is $15 for adults and $8 for Vulcan Members and children ages 5-12. Children 4 and under are free. Ticket price includes live music and admission to Vulcan’s Observation Tower and Museum.
Enjoy cool tunes, craft brews and sweet views with Karl Denson and The Tiny Universe, Chad Fisher, and everyone’s favorite cast iron statue, Vulcan.
