Sonny Rollins Reschedules St. Louis Concert to Saturday, June 22, 2013

Sonny Rollins St. Louis jazz fans who are eagerly anticipating another chance to hear the man known as the “Saxophone Colossus" will have to wait a bit longer. Jazz St. Louis has announced that saxophonist Sonny Rollins (pictured) has rescheduled his performance at the Touhill Performing Arts Center from Friday, October 12 of this year to Saturday, June 22, 2013.

JSL executive director Gene Dobbs Bradford said that Rollins requested the date change so that he could get a bit more time to rest between legs of his 2012 tour. The saxophonist, who will turn 82 in September, is spending most of the summer and fall in Europe, though he does have a couple of US dates scheduled. “He's getting to a point where he needs to pace himself," said Bradford. “We love Sonny, and we're looking forward to seeing him, so we made the change."

Tickets for Sonny Rollins at the Touhill Performing Arts Center will go on sale in August via the Touhill box office.
