Audiences at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) may have to wait 18 months longer than planned to see New York singer-songwriter Jesse Malin live on stage at the award-winning venue, but they are in for an unmissable treat.
Malin had been due to perform live at PAC in June 2020 as part of the venue’s celebratory 20th anniversary programme of live events.
But when the Covid-19 pandemic struck, PAC closed its doors to the public and Malin put his European tour on hold, reverting instead to weekly virtual performances live from New York.
Now Jesse, who has recorded with the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Green Day, is due to play live at PAC on Tuesday 7 December, 8pm.
PAC Director, Janet Farmer, said: “We were so disappointed to have to put our 2020 programme of live events on hold, especially in the midsts of our 20th anniversary celebrations, but it was a necessary step. We are just so excited to have rescheduled Jesse Malin’s live show and cannot wait to resume our live events. I first saw Jesse perform live in 2004 when he was promoting his latest album The Heat, so I am especially looking forward to finally being able to have him perform at PAC.”
Malin has made his name as a thoughtful and introspective singer-songwriter but has also played raucous, over-the-top rock & roll with the band D Generation.
He has performed on The Tonight Show and Letterman, and shared stages with everyone from The Hold Steady to Bob Weir and The Gaslight Anthem.
A prolific writer and relentless road warrior, he continues to circle the globe with his band and in 2019 released his seventh studio album, produced by American roots icon, country music queen & former Platform Festival headliner Lucinda Williams.
Tickets for Jesse Malin live at PAC on Tuesday 7 December, 8pm are £17.50 and are on sale now. For tickets and more information visit www.pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk
