Soulful Seattleite Allen Stone is releasing his fourth full-length Building Balance tomorrow, Friday, Novemvber 8th, and he's taking the celebration sky-high by teaming up with the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport for a special performance on Friday, November 22nd.
It's not the first time the two have paired up: if you've traveled through Sea-Tac Airport any time since 2012, you may have heard Stone's overhead passenger message, welcoming travelers to the airport. And Sea-Tac launched their music program that same year, inviting over 115 musicians to perform there since then. Even more performances are planned for the future as they're installing two permanent performance spaces in Central Terminal and Concourse A, with a third marquee performance stage to open in 2021.
“Our team is deeply committed to incredible passenger experiences and we are a destination for the visual and performing arts as part of that focus,” said Sea-Tac Airport Managing Director Lance Lyttle in a press release. “Our first-ever headliner with Allen Stone is the perfect debut for our evolving live music program and what passengers can look forward to from SEA.”
If you don't happen to be traveling on November 22nd, Stone's performance will also be live streamed from Sea-Tac Airport’s Facebook. Stone will also bring his Karaoke Extravaganza — a special evening of karaoke, games, prizes, and the opportunity to sing with him on stage — to the Triple Door on Friday, November 15th (sold out) and Monday, November 18th.
