CLEVELAND (Jan. 21, 2015) – Cathedral Concerts, a new concert series exclusive to Cleveland, announced today its next show featuring ‘80s music icon Howard Jones on Saturday, March 14, at Trinity Cathedral.
The concert will feature Jones performing his numerous hits including top-five singles “No One Is To Blame” and “Things Can Only Get Better,” as well as “What Is Love?,” “Life In One Day,” “Lift Me Up” and several other selections spanning his more than 30-year career.
Jones is internationally recognized for his very English songwriting and pioneering synthesizers. Special to his current tour, Jones has created custom videos for every song performed, which will further enhance the visual aspect of his musical performance at the gorgeous Trinity Cathedral.
“Trinity Cathedral looks amazing,” Jones stated. “I am really looking forward to coming back to Cleveland and seeing familiar faces. It’s a Saturday night, I have a great set and I know we’re going to have lots of fun.”
As a part of their plan to share the Cathedral Concerts music series to a wider audience, Cleveland’s WVIZ/PBS ideastream will record the show. It will air locally in Cleveland and across the state of Ohio at a later date.
In respect to Jones’ long-standing position on animal rights, Cathedral Concerts is partnering with PetFix Northeast Ohio to market and promote the show. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit PetFix – an organization set-up to responsibly and humanely reduce pet overpopulation and all of the issues that overpopulation brings to our region by making spay/neuter surgeries affordable and accessible to all pet owners, rescues and shelters in Northeast Ohio.
Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the concert is set to begin at 8 p.m. An opening act will be announced in the near future.
Cleveland-based agency The Elevation Group conceived, created and is producing Cathedral Concerts. Cathedral Concerts’ first two shows, featuring nationally acclaimed touring act Red Wanting Blue and Academy Award winner Glen Hansard, sold-out immediately.
“Howard Jones is cool… Very cool,” said Denny Young, President of The Elevation Group. “He spans 30 years and is still relevant today as shown by his work with EDM heavy weights Eric Prydz and Ferry Corsten. We are proud to be presenting Howard, a true pioneer.”
“We are excited for the Howard Jones concert,” said the Very Rev. Tracey Lind, Dean of Trinity Cathedral. “Music has been part of Trinity’s mission for decades. Cathedral Concerts not only extends our reach, it takes it to a whole new level. Plus, since we host an annual Blessing of the Animals service each October, we love the PetFix association.”
