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. On my rental property, before tax caps, I was paying $2,000/yr in property taxes. After the tax caps I'm paying $4,000/yr. How exactly am I "benefiting the most"?

  2. Nick, I too tried that new Walmart NM on Michigan a couple of weeks ago. I had the same feeling, it had good prices, but something was just off about it. I can't put my finger on what it is, but it just didn't feel right. On the plus side, it was easy to get in and out of and much less busy than a typical Walmart.

  5. So the GOP legislature passed a bill that gave big breaks to business at the expense of Indiana families. Color us not surprised.
