Garry Tallent at AMP

Does your mom love classic rock? Is she a Bruce Springsteen fan? Well, she’s in luck because Garry Tallent, bass player for Bruce Springsteen since the early 70s, is coming to AMP by Strathmore on Sunday. As a founding member of the renowned E Street Band, Tallent brought his musicianship and bass groove to every Springsteen album from 1973 to 1987. During a break from the E Street Band in the 90s, Tallent relocated to Nashville where he found a love of country and rockabilly music that has embedded itself deep into the DNA of his solo work. Join Tallent at AMP for an intimate evening of songs and stories. Tickets are available online now!

WHEN: Sunday, May 14, at 8 p.m.

WHERE: AMP by Strathmore
11810 Grand Park Ave #400
