O.A.R. with Preston Cooper
Cost: Members $82 | Non-Members $84
For over 25 years, O.A.R. have embodied the kind of joyfully communal spirit that’s transcendent for artist and audience alike. Since forming in Maryland in 1996, the multiplatinum-selling band have merged their musical DNA into a free-flowing sound and exhilarating live show, repeatedly selling out legendary venues thanks to their massively devoted community of fans. In a thrilling new chapter for the ever-evolving collective, O.A.R.’s tenth studio album, The Arcade, marks their most collaborative effort yet: a boldly unpredictable body of work fully showcasing the extraordinary expanse of their singular musicality. The mission of making music with a profoundly life-affirming impact has defined O.A.R. since its earliest days. First taking the stage at an eighth-grade talent show, the group grew a grassroots following while attending The Ohio State University, largely on the strength of their exuberant live performance and their fans’ feverish sharing of live recordings. O.A.R. have maintained one of the most dedicated fanbases in the world while amassing many platinum and gold certifications. Known for their rare level of autonomy in the music industry, they’ve engaged in a great number of philanthropic endeavors, including establishing a scholarship at The Ohio State University and founding the Heard The World Fund to support youth and education in underserved communities throughout the U.S.
