Grammy-Winning Prog-Rock Producer
Engineering the sounds of a generation, legendary producer, musician and performer, Alan Parsons is bringing his renowned Project to Reno’s Grand Theatre.
Alan Parsons began his illustrious career in music as an assistant engineer on the last two albums by The Beatles. He went on to work with Paul McCartney and Wings, The Hollies and many other artists. His contribution as engineer on Pink Floyd’s classic, The Dark Side Of The Moon, solidified his reputation and led to more success as a producer – notably with Pilot’s “Magic”, John Miles’ “Highfly” and “Music” and Steve Harley’s “(Come Up And See Me) Make Me Smile”. He also produced the hugely successful Year Of The Cat album with Al Stewart and two albums with American prog rock band Ambrosia.
The Alan Parsons Project debuted in 1975 with Tales Of Mystery And Imagination, based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe, paving the way for a string of hit albums, namely I Robot (1977), Pyramid (1978), The Turn of a Friendly Card (1980), Eye in the Sky (1982), Ammonia Avenue (1984), Vulture Culture (1985), Stereotomy (1986), and Gaudi (1987).
Around the turn of the milleniumm, the first incarnation of the “Alan Parsons Live Project” toured to sell-out audiences throughout the globe. Now, more than 35 years on from the release of the hit single “Eye in the Sky”, the Project continues to delight fans with expert musicianship, beautifully produced arrangements, and timeless melodies.
