Joan Osborne’s Love and Hate
Great Hall (Directions & Parking)
Sat., November 3 - 8:00 PM
Due to difficult circumstances arising out of this week’s devastating storm, Joan Osborne has been forced to cancel this Saturday’s performance of her acclaimed dramatic song cycle “Love & Hate” at the Valley Performing Arts Center at California State University, Northridge. In a statement Joan said: ‘I am extremely disappointed that I will not be able to bring “Love and Hate” to Los Angeles at this time. Fortunately, no one in my immediate family and crew suffered significant harm from the storm, but the logistical issues created by it have been substantial. I look forward to performing “Love and Hate” in Los Angeles sometime soon. My thoughts are with everyone suffering from the impact of Sandy.’ Donations to aid in the Superstorm Sandy relief efforts can be made to the Red Cross at: http://www.redcross.org/charitable-donations. Refunds for all ticket holders will be available beginning today.
Love and Hate is a fascinating, sexy and emotionally-charged song cycle that explores modern romantic love and its undercurrents of anger, fear, pride and passion. Anchored by the soulful voice and inspirational writing of eight-time Grammy nominee and multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne, Love and Hate is a powerful theatrical multimedia experience that combines music, dance and film in a stunning exploration of the extremes of the human heart.
Our presentation of Joan Osborne on Saturday, November at 8pm just got spicier with the addition of opening band Clare and the Reasons. The Brooklyn based band, fronted by collaborators Clare Manchon and Olivier Manchon first got noticed with the 2007 debut CD, The Movie, which included contributions from Van Dyke Parks and Sufjan Stevens.
