Somehow this one slipped past me when I was gathering up the rest of this week’s new shows, but Sheryl Crowhas been added to Pacific Amphitheatre’s five-week season, with a headlining performance at the Costa Mesa venue slated for July 25.
Crow, who turned 50 last month, is said to be putting the finishing touches on her eighth album, a decidedly more country-tinged collection due later this year. She’s also reportedly writing material for a musical adaptation of Barry Levinson’s nostalgic 1982 flick Diner, with a Broadway debut (under the direction of Tony winner Kathleen Marshall) planned for fall.
Tickets for Crow’s gig, $29.50-$59.50, go on sale Saturday, March 17, at 10 a.m., as do two other Pacific performances: We already knew about Steel Pulse teaming with Huntington Beach’s Dirty Heads on July 27, $17.50-$40, but there’s also an ’80s metal night in the mix, featuring Cinderella and Skid Row’s Sebastian Bach on Aug. 3, $17.50-$37.50.
