A pop culture moment not to be missed, when legendary Grammy-winning songwriter Jimmy Webb performs “MacArthur Park” in the place that inspired it. Webb reveals the story behind the song and more hits–most of which were written in LA –including “Wichita Lineman,” ‘The Worst That Could Happen,” “All I Know” and a range of others unbelievably all written by the same person in a concert that will give you a new perspective on how the songs you love to listen to on the radio come to be. Visit Jimmy’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/JimmyWebbMusic/ for a fun countdown of some of the varied artists who have covered the Park’s namesake song over the years. Picnic items with sweet green icing optional.
“Few singers blend grit and grandeur like Jimmy Webb…[his] voice is like an old Mustang heading through a treacherous yet often gorgeous landscape.”
— Rolling Stone
“At an age when other singers are losing their voices, Mr. Webb finds his mercurial, unguarded, singing…attaining the gritty authority of a softhearted country outlaw’s…Mr. Webb is still at the top of his game.”
— Stephen Holden, The New York Time
