Elsewhere The Fillmore announced today that long absent singer-songwriter Fiona Apple will make her Charlotte return September 26 at the NC Music Factory venue. Apple, who appears on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" tonight, has been receiving stellar reviews for recent live shows. At one time she had a reputation as a shaky performer, but it appears she's matured since her days of repeatedly apologizing to the crowd like she did at Grady Cole Center in her early twenties (she was great when she guested with Nickel Creek at Ovens a few years back). "The Idler Wheel..." - Apple's first album in seven years - is out tomorrow, June 19. Tickets also go on sale Friday, June 22 at 10 a.m. Tickets are available at the Fillmore box office, www.livenation.com, Ticketmaster outlets, select Walmart stores, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
Before those two must-sees, Neighborhood Theatre welcomes another rock legend in Lindsey Buckingham, who will perform a rare solo "evening with" concert there Tuesday, July 31. Buckingham's latest solo album, "Seeds We Sow," was released in September. Tickets for that show go on sale tomorrow, June 19 at 11 a.m. at 704-358-9298 or at http://neighborhoodtheatre.inticketing.com/events/232592.
