ISIS Music Hall Presents The Singing OUT Tour
June 13 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Isis Music Hall of Asheville, NC presents Singing OUT: the first ever VIRTUAL Pride Tour!
*BECAUSE PRIDE MUST GO ON!*
June 13th @ 830 PM EDT
Two award-winning singer-songwriters, Heather Mae (“the queer Adele”) and Crys Matthews (“the Woody Guthrie of our generation”), are joining forces once again to VIRTUALLY spread their message of social-justice, hope and love from coast to coast as The Singing OUT Tour, a celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride! During this difficult time of social distancing, it is imperative that LGBTQ+ people and our allies gather to lift one another up and bask in the power and beauty of our resilient community! We may not be able to physically gather, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate our stories and our people. We don’t give up – we adapt!
Come dressed in your best Pride gear – however you identify! – and get ready to sing along, play games, compete in giveaways every night, and share connection and community in what will be a memorable VIRTUAL Pride concert! Let’s gather together in song and spirit and keep Pride alive in 2020!!
“Soul-filling” and “amazing” is the way fans described last year’s in-person tour and, with both artists celebrating new releases (Mae’s “GLIMMER” and Matthews’ “These Old Hands”), the 2020 VIRTUAL edition of The Singing OUT Tour will be a memorable and empowering gathering of community and PRIDE!
