Single Tickets To Palladian Series Shows On Sale Monday At 10 AM

It’s time! Single tickets to shows in the upcoming Palladian Series go on sale tomorrow — Monday, August 13 — at 10 AM.

We expect to be busy in the box office, so the following are a few tips to help you get the very best seats in the house to see your favorite performers.

  • Tickets will go on sale online, by phone and in person beginning at 10 AM. Please do not call the box office before this time as we will be unable to take your call.
  • We expect a high volume of sales in the first hour that tickets are on sale. Please be patient. If you are purchasing tickets by telephone, please leave a clear message that includes a call back number. We will be responding to messages in the order that they are received.

If you are purchasing tickets online, please keep the following in mind:

  • The ticket sales page for your selected performance will include a black & white seating chart below the instruction to “PLEASE CLICK ON A SECTION FROM THE MAP BELOW TO SEE SEAT AVAILABILITY WITHIN EACH SECTION.” You MUST click within one of the sections on that map in order to access available seating. You will be directed to a page that indicates the available seating within that section. (Blue circles indicate available seats.)
  • Be assured that the seats you see as available online are the same seats that are available for sale through the box office. Please do not select seats online and then call the box office to confirm availability. This places a hold on the seats and prevents the box office staff from accessing the seats for sale.
  • Most importantly, remember that the only authorized ticket sales agents for The Clayton Center are
    • The Clayton Center website at theclaytoncenter.com
    • etix.com
    • The Clayton Center box office at 919-553-1737, ext 2

Tickets purchased from unauthorized sources can not be honored. Tickets purchased from outside sources are often inflated in price and are not eligible for assistance if tickets are ever lost or stolen or if the event is canceled or rescheduled. The Clayton Center is not responsible for tickets purchased from other sources.

Thank you! We look forward to seeing you this season.

Royal Wood at The Clayton Center NCBe sure to check your mailbox next week for some exciting details about the 2018-19 Palladian Series at The Clayton Center!

Our schedule will be “officially” released on Monday, but we can go ahead and tell you that our season is set, and we are ready to share the excitement. Get out your calendar and save the following dates:

Roots & Boots — the national tour that brings together 90s country legends Sammy Kershaw, Aaron Tippin and Collin Raye — will be our opening show on Saturday, October 27, at 8 PM. After the popularity of last season’s Chicks With Hits show, we expect a big turnout for these guys.

Songwriter and master musician Royal Wood takes the stage on Friday, November 9. He will be followed by the fabulously fun Equinox Orchestra on December 7. You will want to bring the entire family to this holiday show!

The new season also features Durham songstress Yolanda Rabun on February 8, NPR’s Snap Judgment alums James Judd and Jen Kober on March 22, and the much requested return of “one of the best slide guitar players on the planet” – Lee Roy Parnell – on April 13.

The season kicks off with a preview and presale party on Friday, August 10. A $10 ticket will buy you a sneak peek of the season, a preshow reception (with cash bar) and some great entertainment by Al Strong and the Fresh Five. It will also get you the chance to be among the first to purchase individual tickets to shows in the season before they go on sale to anyone else. You will want to plan to join us for this annual event.

Tickets to the preview and presale event go on sale on July 1. Additional ticket sales information is available here.

Final Show of 2017-18 Series Features David Myles

David Myles May 17 at The Clayton Center

David Myles brings his trademark suit and timeless music to The Clayton Center to close our 15th anniversary season on Thursday, May 17.

The Canadian singer-songwriter – who hovers somewhere between James Taylor and Justin Timberlake on the musical spectrum – brandishes a diverse set of musical tools. From soulful, contemporary pop songs to delicate, jazzy folk ditties, from down-home, back porch roots tunes to infectious hip-hop earworms, David’s only artistic constants are his shape-shifting songwriting and his exceptional ability to entertain.

Whether he is collaborating with a Latin Grammy winner, a world-renowned opera diva or a Canadian hip hop star, David effortlessly injects his music with an irresistible energy and an endearing charm. In addition to a reputation as a great showman, David’s flawless musicianship and unforgettable storytelling have garnered him a staggering number of prestigious nominations and awards throughout his career.

Help us celebrate the end of our first 15 years with a truly entertaining evening of the music of David Myles. Tickets for the 8 PM show are $18 (plus sales tax and fees).

Let Carrie Newcomer Provide The Soundtrack To Your Valentine’s Date

Carrie Newcomer

Let singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer serenade you and your Valentine this weekend when the Palladian Series continues on Saturday, February 10.

Fellow musician Rosanne Cash says “Carrie is a touchstone of authenticity in an image-driven, media-defined musical world. She is a beautiful singer and songwriter, and deeply refreshing.”

Carrie also is described as a “prairie mystic” (Boston Globe) with “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate” (Austin Statesman). She has performed around the world for humanitarian efforts, with Boston’s WBEZ naming her one of the most influential folk artists of the last 25 years. Carrie is a conversational, introspective songwriter who celebrates and savors the ordinary sacred moments of life and champions interfaith dialogue and progressive spirituality.

Carrie Newcomer will perform at The Clayton Center on Saturday, February 10, at 8 PM. Tickets are $20, plus sales tax and fees.
