Eddie B: Teachers Only Comedy Tour
The Houston native is singlehandedly changing the comedy game, tapping into the minds of teachers around the world and selling out major arenas throughout the country in minutes!
The phenomenon, which began with a series of videos entitled “What Teachers Really Say” (written, produced, and starring Eddie B) has tapped into a niche only this multi-faceted comic/teacher can comprehend. Through a rigorous comedic set characterized by original material and accented by physical comedy, Eddie B says what teachers everywhere are thinking but couldn’t quite say out loud, until now. He is now the official “voice of teachers” and is currently in talks to parlay the mega success of his tour into a book deal as well as television and big screen versions of his wildly popular viral videos. Millions of educators on social media are calling the “Teacher’s Only Tour” their very own stress reliever and they are filling their favorite venues to capacity eager to hear Eddie B speak THEIR mind!

Flamenco Legends: Paco de Lucia Project
Created by 10-time Latin Grammy® winner Javier Limón, The Paco de Lucía Project reassembles the original band that toured with the legendary flamenco guitarist for the last 10 years of his career. A longtime collaborator and producer of Paco de Lucía, Javier Limón brings the secrets of flamenco at the highest level to create an experience that honors the legacy of Paco de Lucía, while paving a new path into the future of flamenco.
Paco de Lucía was widely considered to be the world’s premier flamenco guitarist and by many to be Spain’s greatest musical export. He has had a revolutionary influence on flamenco music both as a composer and otherwise. His influence on flamenco guitar has been compared with that of Andrés Segovia’s on classical guitar. Throughout his 50 year career, he performed and recorded with musical legends such as Eric Clapton, Chick Corea, Carlos Santana and Al Di Meola among many others.
Presented by The Rhythm Foundation and Olympia Theater.

NEA Jazz Master Eddie Palmieri is a bandleader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. He is celebrating his 80th birthday by performing a select series of concerts with his Latin Jazz Septet, including this one at The Olympia Theater.
Palmieri’s piano playing skillfully fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri. Born in Spanish Harlem to Puerto Rican parents and raised in the Bronx, Palmieri learned to play the piano at an early age, and at 13, he joined his uncle’s orchestra, playing timbales.
He played piano with popular New York bands during the 1950s before forming his own band La Perfecta in 1960. Since then he has recorded landmark albums, toured the world and been awarded countless honors – ten Grammys, Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and the covered Jazz Master award by the National Endowment or the Arts.
This concert is presented by The Rhythm Foundation and The Olympia Theater.

NIGHTWISH: Decades North America 2018
As four guys looking like they’re fresh out of high-school and a girl in leather pants played at the legendary rock-venue Lepakko in Helsinki, Finland, no-one could’ve known that one day they would be performing gigantic tours and would become the most successful band to ever come from Finland with album sales in figures with more than six digits, well known by their name NIGHTWISH. From their first album, "Angels Fall First" onwards, Nightwish gradually grew, or rather evolved.
The Decades 2018 tour will showcase popular songs and never before performed cuts from the band’s deep catalog of music. Additionally, every ticket will include a special Decades Tour CD which will be distributed at the concert.
