    Infinity Hall Live [#106H] Open Wings Broken Strings The Open Wings Broken Strings tour pulls into Infinity Hall with Ed Kowalczyk, Emerson Hart and Leigh Nash, all performing individual acoustic sets. Ed Kowalczyk, most famous as the singer/songwriter of the multi-million album-selling alternative rock band Live, performs an unplugged set of his former group's hit singles such as "I Alone" as well as his newer solo work. He is also responsible for creating the Open Wings Broken Strings Tour. Kowalczyk explained the origin of the tour's name. "At the height of songwriting epiphanies, I seem to always break strings 'cause you get so excited. Bang! The string breaks. But there's this moment where you're really soaring. Open Wings Broken Strings just kind of came out of that." Joining Kowalczyk on the tour is lead singer/songwriter Emerson Hart of another alternative rock band, Tonic. Tonic's first album, Lemon Parade, went multi-platinum with featured hits "Open Your Eyes" and "If You Could Only See," which became radio's most played songs in 1997. In 2007, Emerson went solo and signed with EMI/Manhattan Records, continuing his successful career. His solo acoustic set brings a new intimacy to these well-known songs. Another featured artist of Open Wings Broken Strings is Leigh Nash, lead singer of Sixpence None the Richer. With hit singles like "Kiss Me," "There She Goes," and "Breathe Your Name," Sixpence None the Richer successfully reached platinum status over the past decade, along with picking up a Grammy nomination and several Dove Awards. Now Nash is offering a new perspective on the group's biggest hits as she tours with Open Wings Broken Strings. While each artist performs their own individual acoustic sets, the show features a final performance with all three artists on stage together for a cover of The Band's classic "The Weight." Infinity Hall Live allows for a wonderful experience and by hearing the instruments "stripped down, intimate and acoustic, " as Kowalczyk explains it, "you'll hear the strings on the guitar vibrate and buzz." duration 57:10   STEREO TVPG
