ROCKY MOUNT – Christopher Cross will return to Harvester Performance Center on Oct. 15 as part of his 40th anniversary tour.
Cross burst onto the music scene with his 1980 self-titled debut album, winning five Grammy Awards, including—for the first time in Grammy history—the “Big Four” most prestigious awards: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also “Sailing”), and Best New Artist.
In a career spanning more than four decades, Cross has sold over 10 million albums. In addition to his Grammys, his music has garnered an Oscar, a Golden Globe, an Emmy nomination and five Top 10 singles.
Cross started his own label and, since 2007, has released 8 albums of new materia. The latest project for Christopher Cross Records is aptly titled “The Complete Works.” Released in 2020, it celebrates his 40th anniversary as a recording artist and is a collection of all 12 previously-released CDs, one CD of singles and bonus tracks, and a pink vinyl containing one track from each album.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at harvester-music.com.
