Al Stewart with his band The Empty Pockets
Al Stewart’s last US tour with his band the Empty Pockets was sidelined due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For his first major tour of 2021, Al and the Pockets will be joined by saxophonist Marc Macisso. He will play his old favorites including YearOf The Cat, Time Passages, On the Border, Nostradamus, and Roads To Moscowalong with selections from his deep catalog. 
The Scottish-born singer-songwriter has released nearly 20 introspective and lyrically powerful records featuring brilliant backing musicians (Jimmy Page, Phil Collins, Richard Thompson, Peter White, etc.). His biggest platinum successes,“Year Of The Cat” and “Time Passages”, were released in 1976 & 1978respectively. He’s had several top 20 singles, including the above-mentioned titles, as well as “On the Border” and “Song On The Radio”. 
In Al’s Own Words: “I'm just a folk singer that is interested in history and wine that got lucky with some hit records! It's as simple as that really. I was always a huge music fan and originally, I had wanted to be Brian Jones and then Bob Dylan, but those two jobs were already taken. And in many ways, I'm still pretty much the same troubadour that I was back in 1965. I still get a kick out of hearing the Zombies, Hendrix or They Might be Giants on the radio.”


Because of the rise of the Omicron variant, The T Rex Theater will continue to require proof of vaccination via an immunization record card (or a high-quality image of it) and a matching photo ID. Please make sure you were vaccinated two weeks prior to the event.

Per the Essex township mandate, we also require masks.

The safety of you, the artists, and our team is our number one priority - with live music being a close number two. We've been sure to disinfect the T Rex between each use and provide hand sanitizer in and around our facility, and we've also installed the highest-quality air filters in the six HVAC units that ventilate the interior of The T Rex Theater. The state of Vermont has done a phenomenal job at getting vaccinated, so we hope this new policy won't prevent too many people from joining us. If it does preclude you from enjoying our indoor entertainment, we encourage you to get a shot and join us for a show! Guests with a medical exception or young children must contact us one week before your event.
 The Double E Performance Center is home to The T Rex Theater - a 400 seat multipurpose events space that hosts blockbuster movies, the best-sounding concerts, engaging speaking events, live-streamed programs, and private rentals as well! This is a general admission seated show in the T Rex Theater - seats are first-come, first-served. Our theater is outfitted with plush reclining chairs featuring cupholders that make for the most comfortable concert-going experience in Vermont. 

Unless otherwise listed, our shows are all ages. All guests need a ticket to seated shows. Much like an airline, we will welcome well-behaved babies who can stay seated on their parent's laps. We ask that parents remove loud or distracting children and cooperate if our concert staff ask you to do so. 
Drinks are allowed in the theater; cupholders are available with each chair 
Dancing is more than welcome! We will never ask you to sit down, but please be aware of your impact on your neighbors. Folks are welcome to dance in aisleways so long as they follow the directions of our concert staff. Folks may be asked to vacate aisleways at times and dance in their seat. Seat aisles are larger than most theaters! 
Concerts often feature visualizers, flashing lights, and fast movement 
Tickets are nonrefundable unless the show is completely canceled
Located on the campus that used to be known as The Essex Outlets and Cinema, The Essex Experience is an effort to reclaim retail spaces and turn them into cultural centers. You can spend a whole day here with Black Flannel Brewery, Black Flannel Distillery, Magic Man Cannabis Cafe, Sukho Thai, Uncommon Coffee, Arthound Gallery, The Mad Taco, The Double E Performance Center, Essex Cinemas, and so much more.

Our venue is completely ADA Accessible. Row H features wheelchair-accessible space, as well as accessible seating. If special accommodations will make your visit more comfortable, please reach out to us at Info@DoubleEVermont.Com
