This just in: British singer/songwriter/pianist Jamie Cullum will return to St. Louis on Sunday, March 14 to perform at the Roberts Orpheum Theater downtown.
As of right now, tickets are available only as premiums from local PBS affiliate KETC (Channel 9), which is airing Cullum’s special Live at Blenheim during its current pledge drive. Cullum’s last appearance here in March 2006 also was welcomed by KETC.
A $120 contribution to KETC will get you two tickets to the March 14 show, with additional tickets available for another $60 each. Members pledging at the $60 level get a copy of Cullum’s CD The Pursuit, while an $80 pledge gets you the Live at Blenheim DVD. (You can see a clip from the special of Cullum perfoming his song “Twentysomething” in the embdedded video window below.)
Members pledging $120 or more also get a KETC/Channel 9 MemberCard, which gets you discounts from participating merchants. Ticket vouchers are guaranteed for holiday delivery, but KETC will not guarantee delivery of the CD or DVD.
If you’d rather just buy tickets to the show without contributing to KETC, you’ll have to wait and see if any are made available for sale to the general public after the current pledge drive wraps up. Tickets for shows at the Roberts Orpheum Theater are handled by Ticketmaster.
