Steve Martin (and his banjo) at The Palace

Mr. Martin, along with Edie Brickell and the Steep Canyon Rangers.

The Palace announced today that Steve Martin will be at the theater June 20 for "an evening of music and comedy" with the Steep Canyon Rangers and Edie Brickell. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (February 21) -- they're $39.50.

Martin is pretty much your typical actor/comedian/author/banjo playing renaissance man. He and Edie Brickell recently won a Grammy for best American roots song (and were nominated for best Americana album). There's a clip of Martin and the gang post jump.

From the Palace event blurbage: "The concert will showcase new material performed by Martin and Brickell, including selections from their album 'Love Has Come for You' along with the unique hybrid of bluegrass and comedy that Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers have been delighting audiences with at their sold-out, critically acclaimed shows."

Martin was last at the Palace in 2011, but that was "A Conversation with Steve Martin" as opposed to "An Evening of Music and Comedy with Steve Martin and Other People."

By the way: The Palace's new digital projector will be up and running for a slate of movies March 1. [Biz Review]

I saw him a few years ago at the Troy Music Hall and it was an amazing show.. I wish I was more of an Edie Brickell fan... that's the only reason I've not put this on my list of shows to go see.

Edie is as fresh as the new day. Has she aged at all over the past 25 years??

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
