Best away shows: Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road

REH on the Road produces the Rays baseball Summer Concert Series at Tropicana Field. Here, Barenaked Ladies.

Ruth Eckerd has ramped up its offsite bookings, co-hosting select concerts with SPC at Palladium Theater (like the Keb Mo/Los Lobos bill and a memorable stop by Adam Ant); booking acts for the Post-Rays Concert series in a wide range of genres, from tween pop (Carly Rae Jepsen) to country music (Martina McBride) to Top 40 (Kenny Loggins, OneRepublic) — in addition to helping manage the calendar at Capitol Theatre and bringing live entertainment to the Cleveland Street stage for downtown Clearwater’s regular Blast! Friday street fair.
