Anselmo Valencia Tori Amphitheatre Tickets

With its support beams extending out like the rays of the sun and the span of its roof appearing to be their illumination, the Anselmo Valencia Tori Amphitheatre stands defiantly underneath the Tucson skies in southern Arizona. Erected more than a decade ago, the venue, more popularly referred to as AVA Amphitheater has been host to myriad scintillating events, performances, concerts and theatrical shows over the years. Part of the Casino Del Sol, it aptly embodies the culture and beliefs of the local Native American Pascua Yaqui Tribe, after whose later elder Anselmo Valencia Tori the AVA Amphitheater has been named. Your Anselmo Valencia Tori Amphitheatre tickets will open up a world of quality entertainment this side of the border.

The ancestors of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe had inhabited the region of southern Arizona for more than 14 centuries. However, the tribe itself has more in common with the 15th century Aztecs, especially in terms of their cultural traditions and belief systems centering on reverence of the sun or sol deity. The arrival of the Spanish colonialists in early 16th century resulted in the Yaquis having to endure 400 years of persecution and ethnic cleansing that finally abated in 1929. However, it took another 50 years or so for them to regain some semblance of dignity when the US federal government recognized the Yaquis as an indigenous tribe and entitled them to an area of 1,194 acres or less than 2 square miles. Located in Pima County, this area came to be known as the Pascua Yaqui Indian Reservation and is site of the Anselmo Valencia Tori Amphitheatre.

The AVA Amphitheater was conceived as a venue for enabling the local tribesmen, the denizens of Tucson and tourists from all over to enjoy world class musical and theatrical entertainment at a fraction of the ticket fees at concert venues and arenas in metropolitan areas. The venue was named in honor of Anselmo Valencia Tori, who though having no formal education, was a prominent tribal historian as well as the Yaqui tribe's spiritual leader, having also served his country in the Second World War.

Opening up its performance space in October 2001 with a concert by country legend Alan Jackson, the amphitheater boasts almost 5,000 seats. 2,700 of these are lawn seats and 1,779 are reserved ones of which 1,500 are theater style seats. The open-door feel of the amphitheater is its unique quality and lends the venue a sense of being close to nature whilst enjoying the works of musical artists and troupes from around the world.

Having had the likes of Toby Keth, Brooks & Dunn, James Taylor, Van Halen, Rihanna, Don Henley and Luis Miguel grace its stage in the past, the upcoming lineup of AVA Amphitheater features rock veterans Def Leppard, Mexican music maestro Marco Antonio Solis and ventriloquist vanguard Jeff Dunham. So secure some Anselmo Valencia Tori Amphitheatre tickets now to be treated to a menagerie of rock, pop, soul, R&B, funk and Mexican music spiced up with humor, high fashion and lots and lots of sun.
