Auburn Public Theater will welcome a pair of high-profile musicians within a week of each other.
Performing first at the downtown theater will be John Waite at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 30. On his 40th anniversary tour, the Lancaster, England-born rocker reached No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart with "Missing You" in 1984, and revisited the spot with supergroup Bad English in 1989 with the song "When I See You Smile." Waite resumed his solo career in 1995, adding six albums since then to his millions-selling, Grammy-nominated catalogue.
Singer-songwriter Jason Sinay will open the show. Tickets are $45-$50.
Then, at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, the theater will welcome back acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke. The renowned fingerpicker, whose music spans folk, Americana and jazz, has been playing since he was 11. Kottke previously played a sold-out show at Auburn Public Theater in March 2016.
Tickets to the show are $42 in advance, $45 at the door and $10 for student rush.
The theater is located at 8 Exchange St., Auburn.
