Blues great Jonny Lang, comedian Kathleen Madigan coming to Macon's Grand Opera House
Two new shows are slated for The Grand Opera House in Macon, GA. Blues great Jonny Lang brings his hard-rocking band to Macon on November 18, while comedian Kathleen Madigan performs on January 6.
Sixteen years ago, at the age of 16, Jonny Lang found incredible success with the release of his major label debut album Lie To Me. Fame does not seem to have impacted him from being the same country farm boy from Fargo, ND who got his start in the local clubs of Minneapolis. He survived the passage of youth to adulthood, fell in love, began a family, and in the process passed through the life lessons we all endure. He has a keen sense of what he aims to achieve creatively, what music means to him, and is focused on the impact that his songs bring to the lives of those that encounter his repertoire. For Lang, with the release of Fight For My Soul, he is entering a chapter wherein he has found his true voice.
Over Kathleen Madigan's 25 year career she has performed on nearly every late night show ever made. Leno, Letterman, Conan, Ferguson and most recently in 2015 on the new The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, and Ron White’s Salute To The Troops on CMT, her fifth appearance on the annual show. In 2014, Madigan was nominated for an American Comedy Award for Best Concert Comic and her third one hour special, Madigan Again, was named one of iTunes Best Comedy Albums.
