    Grammy-Winning 'Walking in Memphis' Singer Comes to WCL

    Marc Cohn is coming the World Café Live at the Queen in Wilmington, Del.on Friday, July 22. We know what you’re thinking; you don’t know him by name, right? But we know that you’ve definitely sung along to his music.

    The Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter broke onto the music scene in 1991 with a self-titled album. The album went platinum, peaking at 38 on the Billboard 200 charts. Of course, it featured the soft-rock favorite, “Walking in Memphis.”

    Cohn has gone on to release six more albums since 1991, including last year’s critically acclaimed Listening Booth: 1970. The album is a collection of Cohn’s favorite songs from 1970. Cohn takes on the difficult task of covering some of the best musical hits ever in songs like Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed” and “Tears of a Clown,” which was originally performed by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.

    Doors for Friday’s performance open at 6:30 p.m., with an 8 p.m. start time. General admission tickets for the concert can be purchased in advance for $36; reserved balcony level eats sell for $46. Tickets may be purchased the day of the event for an increased fee. Seating is limited.
