This Saturday, rock music with a message will fill the SCERA theatre.
Playing one of the first shows since the release of his latest album, “Road Less Travelled,” David Osmond returns to his hometown to perform at the SCERA Center.
Osmond said while this album has a contemporary Christian feel, it is not the typical Sunday music people are accustomed to.
“It’s going to be a fun, rockin’ show with music that has a message,” Osmond said.
Never really getting the opportunity to perform in Utah, Osmond has done as much as he can to make sure the audience is as involved as possible.
Osmond said he posted to his Facebook and Twitter asking for requests from those attending and has included some of them on his set list.
“This is your show,” Osmond said.
April Berlin, the operations manager of marketing and development at the SCERA, said Osmond is a fun, charismatic performer.
“David is very personable,” Berlin said. “He is very good about telling stories and including the audience.”
The venue in the SCERA seats 450, giving off an intimate feel to the concert.
Berlin said the “living room” feel is attractive to artists because it creates a very intimate and personal setting.
“There is going to be a really diverse crowd there,” Osmond said. “This is definitely a show for younger people.”
Osmond said the show was geared towards his peers because the messages he sings about are things that he experiences every day.
Because the 7 p.m. show has already sold out and half of the tickets to the 9 p.m. show are sold, Osmond said he will play an 80-minute set. He wants to leave time to shake hands, take pictures and speak with those in attendance.
Tickets are $8 for students with ID, children and seniors and $10 for adults.
