Just a reminder to our followers that Hennepin Theatre Trust urges you to buy only from authorized ticket vendors for shows at our theatres. This not only ensures you the best prices but also the best customer service. You can buy in person at our theatre box offices (no fees) or online/by phone through Ticketmaster. We can't guarantee the validity of tickets sold through second party ticket sellers - and you risk being denied admission, refunds and/or exchanges if the tickets are found to be fraudulent. To be the first to know about presales or on sale information, sign up for our weekly newsletter:

Legendary musician Lyle Lovett and His Large Band returns to the State Theatre on August 29

Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of Americana, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Whether touring as a duo, with his acoustic group or his Large Band, Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this Texas legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music. Among his many accolades, including four Grammy Awards, he was awarded the Americana Music Association’s inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician. His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any living artist working today.
