Cain's Ballroom welcomes Brian Culbertson to Tulsa, OK on May 7, 2020

A message from Brian Culbertson...

Dear friends,

I'm sure this comes as no surprise, but it is with a very heavy heart that I have decided to postpone the entire XX Tour (April 1-June 27, 2020). After last week's announcement of a National State of Emergency and this week's Public Health Order banning gatherings of more than 50 people, it became clear that we had no choice but to move our tour, in its entirety, exactly one year later (April-June 2021). We tried to reschedule for later this summer and even this fall, but too many of the venues were already booked and not available.

So, if you've purchased tickets to an upcoming show this spring, please hold onto them as they will be honored at the rescheduled date next spring. With more than 65 shows coast-to-coast, it will take a little time to confirm the new dates, but we are already 95% rebooked and we hope to make the new dates available next week.

If for any reason you will not be able to attend the rescheduled show once we announce the new dates, refunds will be available if you so choose through the venue and/or ticketing website.

I'm still very excited to bring this show and this new music to you, and I appreciate your patience while this all gets sorted out. The "XX" album will still be released on April 10th so I hope you can enjoy that in the meantime. Until I see you again, take care of yourself.

Over the course of crafting a 20-album catalogue and architecting more than 30 Billboard No. 1 singles as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Brian Culbertson has charted his own unique course in music. Label him jazz and he makes a funk record. Call him an R&B artist and he drops an acoustic jazz trio collection. Brand him pop and he creates a 32-minute New Age opus. And you’d be hard pressed to name another instrumentalist of his ilk who can mount an elaborately designed concert production that will keep him on the road for three consecutive months.

Culbertson burst onto the scene in 1994 with a chart-topping album that he recorded in his college apartment featuring keyboard-led contemporary jazz tracks. “Long Night Out” landed him a lengthy record deal and signaled that a star was born.

Flash forward to present day, his aptly titled “XX” album – those X’s are Roman numerals – finds Culbertson making a record unlike any of his previous releases because of its diversity.

“It’s a mix of things that I’ve done throughout my twenty records. There’s a lot of funky instrumentals, some pop-sounding tracks, a couple slow jams, straight-ahead jazz, gospel, some vocals, lots of horns and some straight-up FUNK!” said the Chicago-based Culbertson. “The album is very much a mixture of some modern sounding programming along with live instruments, too. Real drums on almost everything mixed with programming. Definitely a cool sound.”

Recreating that cool sound live for fans is the best part as Culbertson and his band embark on The XX Tour, playing more than 70 concert dates. In addition to performing much of the new album, the setlist includes cuts from Culbertson’s hit-filled songbook along with a segment showcasing songs from “Winter Stories,” an album released last fall that placed him in an acoustic jazz trio setting for the first time. An exuberant performer, Culbertson spends months in preproduction meticulously working to create stunning visuals - staging, lighting, wardrobe and effects – in order to put on a mesmerizing show each time he takes the stage.

Possessing style, panache and a savvy business mind capable of moving the needle in music and beyond, Culbertson founded and curates the annual Napa Valley and Chicago Jazz Getaways, which have attracted guests from all over the globe to experience his premier events.

Whether you’re listening to music from “XX” on record or live in concert, you’re hearing an eclectic, entertaining and engaging set from an artist at the peak of his power.
