Sara Bareilles bringing ‘Amidst the Chaos Tour’ to Moon

Shirley McMarlin

Grammy, Tony and Emmy award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles will play the UPMC Events Center at Robert Morris University in Moon on Nov. 15.

The concert is part of Bareilles’ 30-city “Amidst The Chaos Tour,” in support of her album of the same name released April 5. The tour kicks off Oct. 5 in Detroit and wraps up Nov. 26 in Atlanta.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. April 12 at

According to a review in Variety, Bareilles’ new album “establishes that there’s no one in contemporary pop better at flexing mezzo-soprano sensitivity and social empathy like a muscle.”

Bareilles first achieved mainstream success in 2007 with her hit “Love Song,” which reached No. 1 in 22 countries. She has seven Grammy nominations, including Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Album of the Year.

Her 2015 book, “Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) in Song,” is a New York Times best-seller.

She composed the music and lyrics for the Broadway musical, “Waitress,” for which she received a Tony Award nomination for Best Score and a Grammy Award nomination for Best Musical Theater Album. She also made her Broadway acting debut in 2017 in the lead role in “Waitress.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
