This summer, Levitt Pavilions will launch a dynamic national project—the inaugural Levitt National Tour featuring the critically acclaimed World music sensation Playing For Change.

Playing for Change


The Levitt National Tour is made possible by the generous support of
the National Endowment for the Arts and Remo.

About the tour

Levitt Pavilions is excited to bring the critically acclaimed World music sensation Playing For Change to Levitt cities across America during the summer of 2014.

Taking place over a three-week period, the tour will stop at six Levitt locations—including Los Angeles and Pasadena, Calif.; Memphis; Arlington, Texas; Bethlehem, Pa; and the future site of Levitt Pavilion Denver (where audiences will get a taste of what's to come when the venue opens in 2016). Levitt audiences across the country will be treated to Playing For Change's high energy show while they groove to the band's soulful jams. In addition, audience members of all ages will be invited to join drum circles on the Levitt lawn before each concert and learn the Levitt signature beat, no experience required! Capping off each event, on-stage conversations with the musicians will give insight into the band's world movement for peace through music and the artists' inspiring personal journeys.
