Four-time platinum artist Beck brings his wide-ranging sound to the Bandshell for a Benefit Concert not to be missed. Always inventive, Beck freely combines rock, hip-hop, R&B, and folk, yielding a stream of underground and mainstream hits that have defined a generation.
Fans can expect a full-on large scale electric blow-out, reminiscent of the fare that Beck and his veteran band delivered at show-stealing stops along last year's festival circuit, including the set lauded by The New York Times as Beck "switched easily between two guises: the deadpan dispenser of brilliant semi-sequiturs and encyclopedic musical allusions — fuzz-toned garage-rock, synth-pop, slide-guitar blues, floating psychedelia — and the sustained, heartsick ballad singer of Sea Change. Though the band was live, the music embraced D.J. culture. Beck could, and often did, suddenly switch styles within a song as easily as dropping a needle."
