The Open Wings Broken Strings tour pulls into Infinity Hall with Ed Kowalczyk, Emerson Hart and Leigh Nash, all performing individual acoustic sets. Ed Kowalczyk, most famous as the singer/songwriter of the multi-million album-selling alternative rock band Live, performs an unplugged set of his former group's hit singles such as "I Alone" as well as his newer solo work.
