For Immediate Release

University Park, IL (September 26, 2018)—With more than five decades of hits under his belt, Aaron Neville knows how to entertain a crowd and keep them coming back for more.

Witness this icon "Tell it Like it Is” at Governors State University Center for Performing Arts on October 13 at 8 p.m. Neville will break out some old and new hits with keyboard player Michael Goods. Aaron Neville Duo at GSU is the only Neville concert with available tickets in the Chicago area, so get yours fast!

Over his four-time Grammy-winning solo career, Neville has scored a string of hits including “Tell It Like It Is,” memorable duets with Linda Ronstadt including "Don't Know Much”, “All My Life” and a hugely popular cover of Main Ingredient’s “Everybody Plays the Fool.”

Lana Rogachevskaya, Director of the Center for Performing Arts says, “Aaron Neville is no stranger to Center for Performing Arts. He performed here in 2009, and we are so excited to welcome him back to hear more great stories and songs from his latest album Apache. And, of course, some of the fan favorites too!”

Having one of the most evocative and recognizable voices in American music, Aaron Neville is an international ambassador of New Orleans R&B, though his soaring falsetto sounds at home in many styles. Coming of age in the incredibly creative 1950s Crescent City R&B scene, Neville gained national attention with his 1966 hit “Tell It Like It Is,” the stirring ballad and #1 hit which was recently inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, as well as with the Wild Tchoupitoulas (pronounced chop-a-TOO-las), a touring Mardi Gras celebration that led to the creation of the Neville Brothers band ― an institution that would confirm Neville’s iconic status.His latest solo album Apache showcases the other side of Neville and lessons he's earned over a lifetime in the music business.
