The Sheldon offering $25 tickets for
Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Cuban Experience

The Sheldon Concert Hall and Metrotix are offering a substantial discount on tickets for the performance by the Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Cuban Experience next Saturday, March 21 at The Sheldon.

Led by Gillespie's former bassist John Lee and featuring percussionist Machito, Jr., the namesake and son of Gillespie's famed collaborator, the six-piece group (pictured) performs a variety of material associated with the legendary trumpeter who helped invent bebop and pioneered the combination of jazz and Latin rhythms.

With the discount, tickets for the show, regularly priced at $45 for orchestra seats or $40 for the balcony, can be purchased for just $25 each.

To take advantage of the offer, use the promotional code DIZZY25 when ordering your tickets online at, by phone at 314-534-1111, or in person at any Metrotix outlet or at the Fox Theater box office, 531 N. Grand Blvd.
