Matisyahu at Troy Music Hall

musician Matisyahu 2018

Matsiyahu is set to play a show at the Troy Music Hall November 1. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Thursday, August 30 -- they're $29.50 and up.

Tour blurbage: "On this tour, he performs acoustic versions of his chart-topping songs, including two of his biggest hits, "King Without A Crown" and "One Day". ... Matisyahu presents his music in its most raw form, allowing his voice and beat-boxing, paired with inventive guitar arrangements, to expand through a lyrical intensity and musical improvisation. This format naturally digs deep into the meaning of the songs themselves, and lays Matisyahu's spiritual journey bare, fostering a closeness to the artist-fan relationship."

And, as you might remember, Matisyahu played Alive at Five this past June.

I used to be a huge Matisyahu fan but after his performance at Alive at Five I'm questioning whether to bother seeing him again. It was one of the laziest, least enthusiastic performances I've ever witnessed. At one point he literally sat down and started smoking mid-song. He basically took all the songs people know and made them unrecognizable, too long remixes with no hook. Left 2/3 of the way through because it was getting sad.
