Fabulous Armadillos Are Back!
The Fabulous Armadillos return to Pioneer Place
We are announcing our 2022-2023 SEASON, and even if you don’t have SEASON TICKETS, you can still get SINGLE TICKETS to the shows at Pioneer Place On Fifth Theater. If you have questions regarding season or single-show tickets at Pioneer Place On Fifth, please email the box office.
We are going back to 1975, when gas was .57 a gallon, Jaws made it’s debut on the big screen, the Vietnam War finally came to an end, the Vikings lost the Super Bowl (16-6), Hip huggers, bellbottoms and leisure suits were all the rage, and there was GREAT music being made and played on 8 track tapes! We are loading in the 8 track on program 1 and listening to Elton John, The Carpenters, The Doobies, Eagles, Captain and Tennille, Led Zeppelin, Olivia Newton-John, Bee Gees, Bad Company, John Denver, Wings, AC-DC, Glen Campbell and so many more. A diverse collection of genres from pop, to rock, to country that we all heard on the SAME radio station. Feel free to dress the part…put on your Mood Ring and grab your Pet Rock, we are taking a Deep Dive into ’75 with the Fabulous Armadillos.
Southern Rock combined blues, boogie, country, soul, and Western swing with rock and roll and arguably helped revitalize the rock music genre in the early 70s. All of these groups shared southern geography and groove, but their individual styles were all their own. Each brings their own ingredients to the Southern stew. We are bringing in some great special guests, adding to our own “stew” to play songs from Southern Rock groups like the Allman Brothers, 38 Special, Molly Hatchet, Marshall Tucker Band, The Outlaws, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. We’re also taking a slight turn and going deeper down the Blues Rock road with bands ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Bonnie Raitt. Get ready to get your groove on and your soul moved by Southern Rock and Blues Rock from the Fabulous Armadillos.

Don’t let the name fool you. We aren’t going unplugged, but we are playing songs whose foundation was built from acoustic guitars and acoustic instruments. Songs from groups like America (Horse With No Name, Ventura Highway, Sister Golden Hair), Gordon Lightfoot (If You Could Read My Mind, Sundown Carefree Highway), James Taylor, Jim Croce, Crosby Stills and Nash, Simon and Garfunkel, Tom Petty, and of course the Eagles all made this sound popular, but groups like Heart, Kansas, Boston, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Bon Jovi, and Led Zeppelin also had songs that were driven by acoustic guitars. We like to push the envelope and take you “all over the map” musically in our themes, featuring special guests and great songs Dillo’s style with Acoustic-I-Dillos – Acoustic Inspired Hits Over The Decades.
April 3-7, 10-14, 2023 – Single show tickets on sale Tuesday, February 7, 2023, at 10am.
