BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Single tickets will go on sale Monday, Aug. 9, 2010 for shows in UAB's Alys Stephens Center new 2010-2011 season.

The new season kicks off in September with an 11-day opening festival featuring a free night of live music by national and local artists; a week-long project/performance that turns the Alys Stephens Center building into a giant musical instrument; a special event with the legendary Liza Minnelli and more. This year the center's arts season is again filled with the world's greatest artists and innovative education programs: 17-time Grammy winner Pat Metheny, country music royalty Rosanne Cash, comedian Joan Rivers, classical superstar Joshua Bell, radio host Ira Glass, master of satire David Sedaris and more.
