Chris Ruggiero: Teenage Dreams & Magic Moments
July 16, 2023 at 7 p.m.
Chris Ruggiero has been touring the country at a dizzying pace, taking his audiences on a musical journey through the golden age of rock and roll. His PBS-TV appearances, feature on Good Morning America and hit albums have brought an even bigger audience, selling out shows all over the country on his recent 37-city tour, but July 16th marks his first time ever in Asheville! In his new show, “Teenage Dreams and Magic Moments,” Chris tells his incredible story by breathing new life into the timeless music of the 50s, 60s & 70s. If you remember songs like “Unchained Melody,” “My Cherie Amour,” “You Can’t Hurry Love” & “This Magic Moment,” you’ll relish an evening spent with Chris. His unique interpretations of those and more are not only vocal triumphs, they feature brand new orchestrations by Four Seasons arranger and pop-rock legend Charlie Calello (who is also a fan, commenting, “It’s been a long time since I heard a voice like this.”) Chris has also collaborated with legendary pop stars such as Darlene Love, The Cyrkle & Peter Noone. Chances are you’ll know every word to every song and the magical feeling will live on long after Chris leaves the stage.
