Tickets to JACKSON BROWNE with special guest SARA WATKINS are nearly sold out. To make sure you have time to park, visit our concession stand and find your seat without missing a beat, we'd like to suggest that you arrive at least 60 minutes before show time.

Jackson Browne has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music.  His laid-back, folk/rock style set the example for much of the music to come out of California during the 1970s.  Unforgettable hits such as “Doctor My Eyes,” “Stay,” “Running on Empty,” “Somebody’s Baby,” and “Tender is the Night,” helped Browne earn his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.  Joining Jackson Browne in this acoustic evening is special guest Sara Watkins, an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and fiddle player.

Love Jackson Browne!! Great set list, concert length was good and there isn't a bad seat in the American Music Theater!

I thought his solo accoustic tour two years ago was much better... Sara Watkins didn't enhance his show...Jackson didn't seem to have the energy for this performance.. He is still one of the very best performers ever....

Jackson Brown was fantastic and the opportunity to see him in a small venue such as AMT is a real treat!

Very disappointed. Wasn't expecting only two hits and a bunch of ballads. Three people in my row fell asleep

Jackson Brown in Lancaster!? How do you guys top THAT!? Along with great young talent i.e. Sara Watkins!

Reviewer: Robert

While technically good in performance I felt that Jackson was less interested in providing an entertaining set that would please most of the crowd than performing relatively obscure songs with his prior band members.

Sound needed to be better.....could not hear the Jackson Brownes voice very well...either while singing or talking....at least not from where I was sitting on the floor....on the right .

This was the third time I have seen Jackson Browne and everytime is better than the last. I am most impressed with how amazing his voice still is after all these years. Fantastic show.

I did not like the song selection. I only knew two or three of the songs he played. I also would have preferred not to hear the other players when I paid to see Jackson Browne.

The sound quality of this show at the AMT was far less than at Hershey Theater 2 years ago. That was disappointing

Really quite a remarkable show; musicians at the top of their individual games bringing their considerable gifts together, setting aside ego, and making some wonderful music together. Much beyond my very high expectations

Great performance! Jackson Browne still has such an incredible voice. Loved all of his songs.

Reviewer: Steve

Too much Sara Watkins with her band. A half hour of her livelier fiddle music and singing would have a good warmup. Too few familiar JB songs, and most of his songs were either mellow or melancholic. Did appreciate that he played 2 hours.

Jackson Browne is a legendary must-see artist, and Sara Watkins was a entertaining and complimentary opening act. It was a great show!

I would have said 10 if the whole show was Jackson Browne. In this case, almost half the show (almost an hour!) was Sara Watkins. She's fine but if I want to see her I'll go to one of her shows. I feel like I paid to see Jackson Browne and he should have been featured for more of the show.

We were huge fans of Jackson Browne since college and paid to hear songs that we loved and he did only a couple of his hits, nevet doing any of our favorites we expected and it seemed this was more of a promotional for his lead, Sara Watkins.... although talented, we paid to hear Jackson Browne and felt disappointed in his set lineup. WE actually played our favorite Jackson Browne songs on the way home in the car and felt we got more doing that and could have skipped the Sara Watkins concert. Where were his hits? Was this a performance to play some lesser known songs .... where were songs like- Somebodys Baby, Stay, Before the Deluge; Lawyers in Love; etc.??? I was most definitely disappointed as a longtime fan.

Jackson Browne is arguably one of the 3 top singer-songwriters of his generation and a consummate performer with one of his best bands ever.

Reviewer: Steve and Kathy

Extraordinary performance by performers who really connected to the audience. However, You do need to do something about the sound quality. The audio was very indistinct(not clear). Hard to discern the lyrics being sung. Also, why does the auditorium seem to be filled with smoke?

Best Jackson Browne concert I've seen in 10 years! The seats were awesome and we were able to see because of the angle of the seats. The cup holders were great and the sound was excellent.

Reviewer: Paul

Jackson Browne and Sara Watkins put on an outstanding show. Jackson, in particular, sounds as good today as he did 40 years ago when I first heard him. Also, he continues to remain true to his roots in that his selection of songs were not just his "top 40," but rather consisted of many songs that are probably his personal favorites.

It was a bit hard to hear his voice over the instruments. I know a lot of times performers bring their own sound people who often don't do as good a job as someone who works with the equipment on a regular basis.

The Heart and Soul Music of Jackson Browne

A singer on my very long bucket list - he was everything and more of what I expected from his show. Amazing after that many years of singing, he still has that passion. I also did not realize what a great piano player he is. Did he have enough guitars? It was most enjoyable!!!!

A WONDERFUL SHOWReviewer: All time favorite

I am so excited to see Jackson Browne especially at AMT. He is my all time favorite. I think he is an amazing artist & songwriter & so excited to have him come to my hometime. I think AMT is a wonderful theatre & want to thank AMT for finally getting Jackson to come to Lancaster. He has an amazing acoustic show!!!

A must seeReviewer: Mary M

One of the most talented singer/songwriters of all time.
Has written some of the most moving songs ever recorded.
I prefer to see him when he is with his entire band but his acoustic concerts are also top notch.
So glad he is coming within a short drive of my hometown.
