The Linda Ronstadt Experience with American Idol Star Tristan McIntosh is the premier touring tribute band showcasing the songs that Linda Ronstadt made famous. The show takes you on a musical journey of smash hit songs, including “You’re No Good,” “When Will I Be Loved,” “That’ll Be the Day,” and a particularly delicate, nuanced interpretation of “Blue Bayou,” among many more.
This repertoire spans from the earliest days of Linda’s singing career with the Stone Poneys, a folk trio formed in Los Angeles in 1965; her first hit song with the band was the evocative “Different Drum.”
During the 1970s, she helped forge the country-rock sound of the era with classic renditions of songs by the Eagles, Jackson Brown, and Warren Zevon; later in the 1980s, she bridged the new wave sound of the decade into huge hits with her chart-topping tenth album, Mad Love. Linda’s explosive live shows also included material by the Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Little Feat, and other contemporaries of the day.
Come out and revel in the songs Linda Ronstadt brought to life so beautifully, performed by the Linda Ronstadt Experience. Vocalist Tristan McIntosh (2016 American Idol finalist) takes you on an emotional ride of purity, power, and heartbreak as she soars through these songs as though they live inside her. Be part of the experience, and follow Tristan McIntosh and the Linda Ronstadt Experience as they bring Linda Ronstadt's music into the 21st century!
To convey the majesty and impact of McIntosh’s powerful vocal quality is hard to put into words. She exudes poise and grace, with a delivery both electrifying and subtle, by turns. Tristan brings the original singer’s version stunningly alive through her own artful touch. A sea of listeners throughout a theatre can often be heard quietly singing along at the summit of “You’re No Good,” drawing out that famous, 8-second vowel.
The LRE show is touring widely, and becoming ever more popular, earning increasingly sold-out houses. Catch them when—not if—you can. It’s a shining experience that will buoy your days to come.
