It has been nearly four years since Hozier made his debut appearance in Cleveland and his new album, Wasteland, Baby! drops in March.
Dirty Heads, Moon Taxi, MisterWives, COIN, Dennis Lloyd and many more join Hozier on Saturday.
Sunday, June 9 will be headlined by nine-time Grammy Award winner, Sheryl Crow. Her ten studio albums have sold 50 million copies worldwide; seven of them charted in the Top-10 and five were certified for multi-platinum sales. Her hit singles include “All I Wanna Do,” “Soak Up the Sun,” “Everyday is a Winding Road,” and “The First Cut Is the Deepest,” and she has contributed to many movie soundtracks.
Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, whose 2018 LaureLive performance was arguably the finest set in the history of LaureLive will return on Sunday, June 9. Other Sunday performers include: Lake Street Dive, AJR, Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela and Akron natives Red Sun Rising plus others.
LaureLive will join forces with renowned chef Fabio Salerno’s “Lago” brand and restaurant. This collaboration is a part of Lago Concessions – a Fabio Salerno Concept. In 2016 Chef Salerno became a chef partner at Aramark creating Items for the Cleveland Browns Stadium, Quicken Loans Arena and The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He was awarded a Cleveland Cavalier’s championship ring by the Cavs Organization for his work at #Launch test kitchen in the Quicken Loans Arena during the 2016 season. Now Salerno and his team bring their expertise to LaureLive.
The current plan calls for nine (9) food stands and five (5) food trucks in the main concert area, plus additional food trucks on the south side of the concert venue adjacent to Stage 3. Total point-of-sale windows will be at least 25, far exceeding the amount of points-of-sale in any other year.
Food selections will feature a variety of dishes (see samples below) that include vegan and gluten-free options and food appropriate for all ages. And a highlight in 2019 will be “grab-and- go” options.
