Laxson Auditorium

Buy Tickets: $53 - $73 | Youth age 17 and under $17 | Chico State Student $17

The legendary, powerhouse, funk and soul band, Tower of Power opens the Chico Performances season. Performing since 1968, they have landed a total of eight songs on the Billboard Hot 100, with songs including “You’re Still a Young Man”, “So Very Hard to Go”, and “What Is Hip?”.

Tower’s window-rattling grooves and raucous party spirit has been a balm for the soul throughout their half-century existence. The band has long since surpassed their modest aspirations, traveling the world, enjoying hit singles on their own and backing legendary artists including Otis Redding, Elton John, Santana, the Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker, Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, and countless others. In the process they’ve defined an “Oakland soul” sound as instantly recognizable as those from Castillo’s hometown, Detroit, as well as inspirations like Memphis and Philadelphia.

The future of Tower of Power is set out to be vigorous and dynamic, and will prove to be just that for fans around the world starved for the band’s groove just the way Tower of Power likes it!

Join Chico Performances for a pre-performance Party on the Patio featuring food trucks, beverages, and live music. The fun starts at 6 PM, see you there!
