Lobero Theatre Foundation presents Jackson Browne – Centennial Celebration Concert, marking the 100th Anniversary of the Lobero Theatre’s grand reopening. Join us in commemorating this historic milestone on Sunday, August 4, 2024 at 7 PM

Originally founded as Jose Lobero’s Opera House in 1873, the Lobero fell into a state of disrepair by 1922. The new building, designed by renowned architects George Washington Smith and Lutah Maria Riggs, became the standard upon which a great many of the newly constructed buildings were based, and the Spanish Colonial Revival design ultimately became the “Santa Barbara look.” Fast-forward one hundred years and this majestic building has been named as one of Architectural Digest’s “11 Most Beautiful Theaters in the World.”

Tickets available for purchase IN PERSON ONLY starting Saturday, July 13th at The Lobero Theatre box office at 10 AM.

Limit 2 tickets per customer – tickets will be pickup only starting 5 PM on the evening of performance w/ ID. Tickets not eligible for refund or transfer.

Springsteen Archives & Center for American Music announces 2024 honorees

The Bruce Springsteen Archives & Center for American Music has announced the honorees of its second annual American Music Honors event, to be held Wednesday, April 24 on the campus of Monmouth University in West Long Branch, N.J.

Jackson Browne

The 2024 honorees are: John Mellencamp, who together with Willie Nelson and Neil Young, created Farm Aid in 1985. The social activism reflected in Mellencamp’s songs helped catalyze Farm Aid, the organization that has addressed the struggle of American family farmers that continues to this day; Jackson Browne, a long-time social justice, environmental and educational activist who has supported everything from anti-nuclear alternative energy resources to political freedom in Central America; Mavis Staples, who in the 1960’s was on the frontlines of the civil rights movement and continues to use her music to support racial equality in America; Dion DiMucci, who’s landmark recording of “Abraham, Martin and John” became an activist anthem in the late 1960’s and beyond.

“The Bruce Springsteen Archives & Center for American Music is proud to honor these musically, culturally, and politically important artists,” said Robert Santelli, Founding Executive Director of the Springsteen Archives. “All four artists—John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne, Mavis Staples, and Dion—have contributed mightily to the American music canon and have demonstrated how the power of song can act as an agent for positive change in our country.”

American Music Honors will take place in Monmouth University’s Pollak Theatre. Stevie Van Zandt’s Disciples of Soul will serve as the event’s house band. Award presenters include Bruce Springsteen and Jon Landau and 2023 American Music Honors recipients Van Zandt and Darlene Love.

Tickets for the event will go on sale to the public on Tuesday, March 23. Ticket information is available on the Archives’ website springsteenarchives.org.
