La La Land in concert on its way to Benaroya Hall, Barry Manilow officially comes out

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

The Academy Award-winning musical La La Land is headed to stages around the world, including two nights early next year in Seattle. Although the film didn't capture the Best Picture award, it did earn multiple Oscars, including a Best Actress statue for Emma Stone and Best Director honors for Damien Chazelle. The movie, which features music by another Academy Award recipient, Best Original Score winner Justin Hurwitz, has now been adapted into a live experience with full orchestra that will perform the score alongside the film's vocal recordings. La La Land will be staged February 13 and 14 at Benaroya Hall with the Grammy-winning Seattle Symphony. Tickets go on sale August 5, but are exclusively available to subscribers now. Tickets can be purchased online at seattlesymphony.org, by calling the Seattle Symphony box office at (206) 215-4747 or (866) 833-4747, or in person at the Seattle Symphony box office (3rd and Union). Tickets may also be purchased through the Seattle Symphony's iPhone and Android apps by searching 'Seattle Symphony' or 'Listen Boldly' at Apple's App Store, or Android's App Store.

Congratulations are in order for Barry Manilow, who officially came out this week about his sexuality and secret marriage to longtime manager Garry Kief. The two have been in a business and personal relationship for 40 years. 'I thought I would be disappointing them if they knew I was gay. So I never did anything,' Manilow, 73, said in an exclusive interview with People magazine, in response to why he never disclosed being gay to his fans. The music legend is known for writing and singing some of the biggest pop hits of the '70s and '80s, including 'Copacabana (At The Copa),' 'Can't Smile Without You,' 'Mandy,' 'Even Now,' 'Let's Hang On' and 'I Write the Songs.'

Fleet Foxes have booked another hometown show on their tour itinerary, scheduled to appear September 14 at the Paramount Theatre. This is in addition to the band's previously announced May 19 concert at The Showbox Market, and both performances are in support of the group's new album Crack-Up, Fleet Foxes' first record in six years that lands in record stores on June 16. Tickets for the Paramount Theatre show are available online at Ticketmaster.com, in person at the Paramount box office, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. For more information, visit STGPresents.org.

Here are more concerts to tell you about: Digable Planets on May 27 at The Showbox Market, Psychedelic Furs on July 31 at The Showbox Market, Willie Nelson & Family with Kacey Musgraves on August 9 at Marymoor Park, Simple Plan on September 2 at the Neptune Theatre, OK Go on September 9 at the Moore Theatre and Brad Paisley on September 12 at The Gorge Amphitheatre.

Finally, former Seattle resident and Grammy-nominated artist Mary Lambert is releasing a new EP titled Bold on May 5 that she describes as 'feel good queer-pop.' She wrote all seven songs on the recording and self-produced three of the tracks, including the lead-off single 'Know Your Name.' An interview with Lambert is in the works. Stay glued.
