We told you several months ago that a Jim Brickman holiday concert was scheduled at the Paramount Theatre in Cedar Rapids on December 11. A change of plans due to the Coronavirus pandemic means this concert will not go on in person. Instead, you will be able to enjoy "Comfort and Joy" in the comfort and joy of your home (or wherever you can stream concerts).

Several tour dates are scheduled for this format, where each night will be an EXCLUSIVE stream available to those who purchase tickets, with a portion of the proceeds supporting a local venue. In our case, it's the Paramount.

Tickets to this VIRTUAL event can be purchased here, with a portion of each ticket purchased benefitting the Paramount in these challenging times. Piano sensation and holiday favorite Jim Brickman performs from the comfort of his studio to your home, exclusively for Cedar Rapids on Friday, December 11, starting at 7 p.m. You'll also receive with each ticket purchased a stocking filled with Christmas goodies, delivered straight to your front door.

It's a "front-row experience like never before" according to the Paramount Theatre website as we are treated to the festive sounds of the season with traditional holiday songs and Brickman's originals including "The Gift".

Per the Paramount website: "Brickman will warm the hearts of all as sweet sounds of faith and love make spirits bright, bringing family and friends together for anything but a silent nightBrickman will bring the LIVE concert experience up close and personal by blending yuletide memories and holiday carols with his own hit songs such as, “The Gift,” “Sending You A Little Christmas,” “Angel Eyes” and “If You Believe.”

There are virtual concerts everywhere on the internet you can watch anytime for free, after the fact, but a one-night-only live-streaming event exclusive to our location that supports our beloved local venue will be something unique and special. Until we can get the real thing back, don't miss it.
