DeKALB – The Egyptian Theatre in downtown DeKalb has announced six more shows for its 2018 fall season. With three shows already announced – The High Kings, Marc Cohn and The Simon & Garfunkel Story – the Egyptian is ramping up for its biggest fall season yet.

In September, the Egyptian will welcome Presley, Perkins, Lewis and Cash on Sept. 8. The audience will get the feeling they are witnessing a rock ‘n’ roll royalty jam session with the music and talent of Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash.

On Sept. 12, the Egyptian will host Steely Dane. Winner of Madison Magazine’s Best Cover Band, Steely Dane is dedicated not only to faithfully reproducing the Steely Dan and Donald Fagen songbook, but to bringing an energetic live-show experience to the crowd.

The Sweet will take the Egyptian stage Sept. 22 for its 50th Anniversary Tour. With more than 55 million records sold and 34 No. 1 hits worldwide, The Sweet still performs to sold-out audiences around the globe. Their glam-rock hits include “Fox on the Run” and “The Ballroom Blitz.”

In October, the Egyptian will welcome “The Stranger: A Tribute to Billy Joel” on Oct. 13. The Stranger is the complete, premier tribute to the music of one of the world’s most beloved performers, Billy Joel.

On Oct. 20, “Catapult: The Amazing Magic of Shadow Dance” will take the stage. As seen on “America’s Got Talent” as finalists, Catapult is a shadow dance company that is fun for the whole family.
