The legendary Alan Parsons Live Project will make an appearance at Celebrity Theatre this summer.

This iconic progressive rock group will hit the stage at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 31 at the theater at 440 N. 32nd St. Grammy Award winner Parsons worked as an assistant engineer on The Beatles’ last two albums, then qualified as a fully-fledged recording engineer. Afterwards he worked with Paul McCartney and The Hollies, among many other artists. In 1975 he met Eric Woolfson, who became his manager and songwriting and performing partner for what became known as The Alan Parsons Project. The band’s debut album, ”Tales of Mystery And Imagination” led to a signing to Clive Davis’ Arista label, then a string of hit albums including “I Robot,” “Pyramid,” “The Turn of a Friendly Card,” “Eye in the Sky” and “Ammonia Avenue.”

After some change-ups in the members, the band consists of Parsons on acoustic guitar, keyboards and vocals; along with P.J. Olsson, Todd Cooper, Tom Brooks, Guy Erez, Jeff Kollman, Danny Thompson and Dan Tracey. For tickets, visit
