The Salt Lake Bees announced Monday that the club will kick off the 2011 Triple-A All-Star Game festivities with a concert featuring Chris Isaak and Blues Traveler at Spring Mobile Ballpark on Saturday, July 9.
"We're excited to bring in such distinguished performers to be a part of our All-Star activities," said Bees general manager Marc Amicone. "Our goal all along has been to create an atmosphere worthy of an event of this magnitude and we feel this concert will do just that. This show will launch a five-day celebration of Major League Baseball's up-and-coming stars."
Throughout his impressive recording career right from his stunning 1985 debut to his latest stellar effort, "Mr. Lucky" two-time Grammy-nominated recording artist, Chris Isaak, has tunefully and artfully explored the good, the bad and the ugly of love, as well as other matters of profound human interest. He has done so with an abiding respect for popular music's past, but at the same time with clear and vital passion for the here and now. Like some of Isaak's best known past compositions, such as his international breakthrough smash "Wicked Game," "Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing" and "Somebody's Crying," the songs on "Mr. Lucky" have a deeply felt sense of the consequences of good love gone bad, and bad love gone good.
