Friday, July 11: Sara Bareilles
Singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles clearly remembers her first tour. It wasn't pretty. The guys in Maroon 5, who were friends of hers, invited her to accompany them on an East Coast tour. "I had no idea what I was doing," she says via phone from her New York home. "I rented a RV instead of a van. I made so many poor business decisions and lost my ass financially on that tour. I was just a kid figuring it out. I have a lot of fond and nostalgic memories about that period of my life because so much of it was unknown. It's actually a cool thing to have built off." Bareilles has certainly "built off" that initial experience. See just how much tonight when she takes to the Jacobs Pavilion Stage at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $35-$55, livenation.com.
