Marcus Roberts and his trio (pictured) this Saturday at the Sheldon Concert Hall for budgetary reasons, you may be in luck (even if you don't win Wednesday's big Powerball drawing).
That's because The Sheldon and Metrotix today announced a "buy one, get one free" offer on tickets to see Roberts, who's making his first St. Louis appearance in many years. (For more about Marcus Roberts, see this post from a couple of weeks ago.)
Tickets are priced regularly at $40 orchestra, $35 balcony, but with the promotional offer, you'll get two for the price of one. (Student tickets, which are priced at $15, are not included in the promotion.) To access the offer, go online to Metrotix.com and enter the promo code "MARCUS12" (without the quote marks) in the designated field. The offer also is available by phone at 314-534-1111 or 800-293-5949 and in person at the Fox Theatre box office.
