May Round-Up at The Franklin Theatre

May at The Franklin Theatre was absolutely ELECTRIC! From Grammy-award winning artists to rock & roll legends, relive the magic with us as we celebrate the music and memories that made May truly an unforgettable month at The Franklin Theatre.

T-Bone Burnett: We kicked off the month on a high note with Grammy-award winning artist T-Bone Burnett, reflecting on his latest record, “The Other Side.” His haunting 12-song collection, featuring luminaries like Rosanne Cash and Lucius, weaves a loose love story amidst eerie, spectral melodies and rich vocals. Departing from his previous works, Burnett embraced a more melodic tone, creating a deeply introspective and accessible album enjoyed by all.

Variety on Main: Our monthly Variety on Main showcase has become one of our favorite traditions on Main Street! May’s lineup included the likes of Lynnmarie & E3, Charlie McCoy, The Kody Norris Show, Victoria Shaw, Alicia Witt, and featured Pat Coil and The Mainstays. If you haven’t yet made it to a Variety on Main show at The Franklin Theatre, we’ve got GREAT news, there is another one coming up next month (June 17th at 7:00 PM!) Get your tickets HERE!

Orleans: Orleans took The Franklin Theatre stage by storm with a special performance highlighting their legendary songwriting prowess and timeless harmonies. From platinum hits like “Still The One” to the infectious melodies of “Dance With Me,” Orleans captivated audiences of all ages with their iconic radio staples. With over five decades of musical excellence and 17 albums under their belt, Orleans proved once again why they remain at the pinnacle of live entertainment, delivering a dynamic blend of unplugged intimacy and full-throttle electric energy. The evening was made even more special with a surprise guest appearance from none other than the legendary John Hall!

Mitch Rossell: From captivating thousands on Garth Brooks’ 2022 stadium tour to earning his first #1 single with “Ask Me How I Know,” Mitch Rossell’s songwriting prowess and undeniable talent came to life at our historic venue. With landmark moments like his Grand Ole Opry debut, where he received a surprise introduction from Brooks himself, Rossell’s original music continues to resonate deeply with audiences, amassing over 103 million all-time streams and solidifying his status as a rising star in country music.

The Money Guy Show: It was an honor to host the first night of the Millionaire Mission Book Tour, presented by our neighbors, Brian and Bo from The Money Guy Show! This interactive event featured a live Q&A and engaging financial insight, and we were thrilled to help kick off this multi-city tour.

Tommy DeCarlo & Jason Scheff: The Franklin Theatre witnessed a night of classic rock bliss as lead singers of iconic bands, Jason Scheff (Chicago) and Tommy DeCarlo (Boston), joined forces for a memorable tribute. With Scheff’s signature high-tenor vocals and DeCarlo’s powerhouse performances, the audience was treated to unforgettable renditions of hits spanning the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Backed by the powerhouse musicianship of SIXWIRE, the concert delivered a timeless journey through the ballads of Chicago and the guitar-driven rock anthems of Boston, leaving the crowd wanting more.

As we bid farewell to May, The Franklin Theatre is still buzzing with the energy of the month’s incredible shows. Don’t miss out on all the fun June has to offer. Check out our full slate of shows, movies and more coming to Main Street HERE!
