Old-School St. Louis Bands Join Together for a Crohn's Benefit at the Roberts Orpheum. Also, Other New Shows at the Venue...



Gravity Kills, New World Spirits, Soul Kiss and the Hunted will be performing at a benefit show at the Roberts Orpheum Theater on June 25. The night benefits the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation Midwest Chapter and will include celebrity bartenders such as the Point's Jeff Burton (of Thom and Jeff fame), who has Crohn's himself. Tickets are on sale soon via Ticketmaster.

As some may have noticed, the Roberts Orpheum has been booking more shows lately. Steve Martin's concert on Friday was sold out, while pianist Jamie Cullum played there in March. The Todd Rundgren show we told you about a few weeks ago is on sale May 8 at 10 a.m. And rocker Melissa Etheridge (pictured), who released a new CD, Fearless Love, today, is there on August 12. Those tickets are on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m.
