Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.TheSmithCenter.com, by calling 702.749.2000 or in-person at The Smith Center box office.
Since the early ‘80s, Kenny G’s combination of unparalleled instrumental chops and indelible melodies has resulted in sales of more than 75 million records worldwide (45 million in the U.S. alone) and more than a dozen climbs to the top of Billboard’s contemporary jazz chart.
Other career highlights include Miracles, a 1994 holiday album that took him to the top of the Billboard chart for the first time and has since become the best-selling holiday album of all time. His two holiday albums since then – Faith in 1999 and Wishes in 2002 – have been similarly successful. At Last…The Duets Album, released in 2004, featured performances by Barbara Streisand, Burt Bacharach and LeAnn Rimes, along with a remake of Outkast’s “The Way You Move” with Earth, Wind and Fire.
Listen and enjoy the incomparable sounds and stylings of Kenny G live and in person during his Smith Center debut this Sept.
