The first summer season for Carmel's Center for the Performing Arts brings seven shows (in addition to the already sold out k.d. lang gig).

The schedule announced May 25 (with tickets on sale the 26th) includes some high-profile acts who have played other venues in the area in the past. But it also includes the first local shot by comic Martin Short, the comedic actor who has transitioned into legit theater in such stage efforts as "The Goodbye Girl," "Little Me," and his own Broadway show.

The full schedule:

Indigo Girls, July 10

Emmylou Harris, July 13

Boz Scaggs and Michael McDonald, July 17

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, July 27

Lyle Lovett and His Large Band, Aug. 20

Martin Short, August 27

Ticket prices have yet to be announced.

  • Summer schedule
    Yet another venue with a fantastic summer schedule pulling on our summer entertainment dollars! I am so happy to be living in central Indiana, where there are so many options to see such a diversity of entertainers. I'm asking for Boz Scaggs/Michael McDonald tix for my birthday!
  • More than pop
    Decent, maybe even good. Emmylou and Lyle are definitely authentic and revered (lyle played Indy with John Hiatt a few months ago...amazing), Indigo Girls are wonderful live (their typical crowd will liven up downtown Carmel too). McDonald and Scaggs could be an interesting pairing, depending on what they play, Mc Donald is completely gray and shrinking daily, but his voice seems to be wholly intact, and Scaggs has lately returned to blues and R&B ...they were a key part of Don Fagen's New York Rock and Soul review many years ago. Pat Benatar and Neil Geraldo? Geraldo is a much underappreciated guitarist, but the music is just...not on a par with the other artists mentioned here, to put it kindly. Tough to quibble too much with the summer season...mostly winners or potential winners...as for Martin Short, he clearly did not translate to film as well as some of the other SNL alumni...but he was clearly as talented as the best of them...perhaps he has found a niche on the live stage that suits his own set of skills better than film. I am sure that will be a good night as well. A better effort by the Palladium than Charlie Daniels and the Wright Brothers, for sure...
  • Pricing
    I purchased tix to McDonald / Scaggs in thr orchestra for $60 each. Debating on Martin Short...
  • Is Martin Short appropriate?
    Hi-
    I have two teenage aged children and want to take my family to the Martin Short show. I am debating whether or not it will be appropriate for the kids. Please let me know what you think or if you have seen it. Thanks!

  1. I think the poster was being sarcastic and only posting or making fun of what is usually posted on here about anything being built in BR or d'town for that matter.

  2. Great news IRL fans: TURBO the IMS sanctioned movie about slugs running the Indy 500 has caught the Securities and Exchange Commission because Dreamworks had to take a $132MILLION write down...because the movie was such a flop. See, the Indy/IMS magic soiled another pair of drawers. Bwahahahahahaha! How's CARTOWN doing? HAHAHAHA...Indy is for losers.

  3. So disappointed in WIBC. This is the last straw to lose a good local morning program. I used to be able to rely on WIBC to give me good local information, news, weather and traffic on my 45 minute commute.Two incidents when I needed local, accurate information regarding severe weather were the first signs I could not now rely on WIBC. I work weekend 12 hour nights for a downtown hospital. This past winter when we had the worst snowfall in my 50 years of life, I came home on a Sunday morning, went to sleep (because I was to go back in Sunday night for another 12 hour shift), and woke up around 1 p.m. to a house with no electricity. I keep an old battery powered radio around and turned on WIBC to see what was going on with the winter storm and the roads and the power outage. Sigh. Only policital stuff. Not even a break in to update on the winter storm warning. The second weather incident occurred when I was driving home during a severe thunderstorm a few months ago. I had already gotten a call from my husband that a tornado warning was just southwest of where I had been. I turned to WIBC to find out what direction the storm was headed so I could figure out a route home, only to find Rush on the air, and again, no breaking away from this stupidity to give me information. Thank God for my phone, which gave me the warning that I was driving in an area where a tornado was seen. Thanks for nothing WIBC. Good luck to you, Steve! We need more of you and not the politics of hatred that WIBC wants to shove at us. Good thing I have Satellite radio.

  4. I read the retail roundup article and tried Burritos and Beers tonight. I'm glad I did, for the food was great. Fresh authentic Mexican food. Great seasoning on the carne asada. A must try!!! Thanks for sharing.

  5. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...
