Award-Winning Musician Jon Batiste to Play Hershey Theatre in May

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 29, at 10 a.m.

Multi-Grammy and Oscar award-winning musician Jon Batiste today announced that he will bring four exclusive shows to the East Coast in May, including a visit to Hershey Theatre on Saturday, May 11, 2024, at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available online at www.HersheyEntertainment.com and www.Ticketmaster.com.

Featuring an evening of genius music composition and instrumental virtuosity, “STREAMS: Jon Batiste At The Piano” will make stops in Syracuse, Buffalo, Hackensack and Hershey, Pa.  

Of the forthcoming shows, Batiste shared: “I am at home on the piano. STREAMS is a stream-of-consciousness music that comes to me in the moment without rehearsal or preparation. Playing piano for me is like breathing. It’s prayer, it’s dreaming, it’s conversation. I want to be in the conversation with the audience and share this intimate creative space. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience each time, a spontaneous flow state, completely improvised.”

Batiste is currently on his headlining tour in support of his latest Grammy-nominated album, “World Music Radio.” The sold-out “Uneasy Tour: Purifying the Airwaves for the People” continues to earn rave reviews from critics, including the Boston Globe, who described the show as “beautifully life-affirming,” while the Tennessean highlighted his ability to electrify audiences, noting that he “brought the crowd to their feet in worship or hollering along to rock n’ roll.”
