RED BANK – Five-time Grammy winner Christopher Cross will present an evening of music at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Two River Theater, 21 Bridge Ave.
Tickets are $105, $95 and $55 with a portion of the proceeds being donated to Sandy relief. Tickets can be purchased by emailing the theater at www.trtc.org, calling 732-345-1400 or by visiting the box office.
Cross was the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including his No. 1 hit Sailing. His 1980 self-titled debut album with the lead single Ride Like the Wind rocketed to the No. 2 spot; the massive success of the second single Sailing made Cross a superstar, and in the wake of two more Top 20 hits, Never Be the Same and Say You’ll Be Mine he walked off with an unprecedented and record-setting five Grammys in 1981.
Cross also scored a second No. 1 hit and Academy Award, with Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do).
