Topeka will host two special performances live from Nashville by singer-songwriter John Hiatt on August 24 and 31. Tickets go on sale August 5 and will initially be available to purchase solely as a bundle for admission to both shows. Remaining tickets to the individual shows will be released later; tickets/additional info HERE.

240 tickets are available, priced at $100 each, for the “Front Row,” an intimate experience in which audience members are able to interact with and be seen by Hiatt as he is performing. Learn more about the Front Row Experience HERE. There are also “balcony” tickets available at $40 each.

Each of the two unique shows features a different theme:

Monday, August 24 (8 P.M. ET): Hiatt will perform two albums in their entirety, Bring the Family and Slow Turning.

Monday, August 31 (8 P.M. ET): The second performance, “Songs & Stories,” will allow Front Row ticket buyers to request songs in advance for Hiatt to perform during the show. He will also delve into the meanings behind the songs and songwriting process, and a Q&A will be held following the performance. Front Row buyers will be able to submit questions in advance for the Q&A portion, to be asked by an interviewer following the show.

Topeka has enjoyed growing success since its inception, allowing artists and fans to connect face-to-face via live interactive video. By offering scheduled, moderated two-way Hang Sessions between artist and fan, Topeka creates the opportunity to form personal relationships via mini-concerts, private lessons and listening parties, group Q&As, workshops, serenades and more.
