Red Hot Chilli Pipers to Play Hershey Theatre in 2022
Tickets On Sale Friday, December 17 at 10 a.m.
Red Hot Chilli Pipers are returning to Hershey Theatre on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, at 7:30 p.m.
The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, a 9-piece ensemble consisting of pipers, guitarists, keyboards, and drummers, are coming to Hershey, Pa. They’ve been rocking the world from New York to Beijing to Hershey and everywhere in between with musicianship of the highest order and a passion for pipes that will leave you breathless. The band has four music degrees from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and all the pipers and drummers have played at the top level in bagpiping.
Since they walked away with the top prize on the primetime TV talent show, “When Will I Be Famous” in the U.K. in 2007, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers haven't stopped for a breath, other than to inflate their bagpipes. Formed in 2002, they have fast become a global phenomenon, taking their signature “bagrock” sound to the masses with their unique fusion of rocked up bagpipes and clever covers of popular songs from all genres. Their trademarked sound is a unique fusion of traditional pipe tunes – like “The Flowers of Scotland”, “The Hills of Argyll”, and “Amazing Grace” (done Chilli-style, of course) -- and contemporary anthems like Queen’s “We Will Rock You”, “Clocks” by Coldplay, “Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol, “Let Me Entertain You” by Robbie Williams, and a fantastic rock medley of “Deep Purple”, “Smoke on the Water”, and AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck”.
Hershey Theatre opened in September 1933. It has established itself as the area’s premier performing arts center, presenting the finest in touring Broadway shows, classical music and world-renowned entertainers.
