Fox Tucson Theatre’s 2019-20 season could be one of its most ambitious and busiest since the historic theater started hosting a full season of concerts and events a dozen years ago.

A quick scan through the lineup makes a convincing argument.

There are diverse tribute shows including cabaret singer Ann Hampton Callaway performing Linda Ronstadt’s songbook in October and a tribute to Queen’s Freddie Mercury in December. There are also the Champions of Magic and comedian and YouTube sensation Randy Rainbow in November, and holiday shows including the return of “An Irish Christmas” Dec. 6 and “Merry-Achi Christmas” on Dec. 15.

“I am extremely excited about the upcoming concert to honor Linda,” said Callaway, who has been performing the Linda Ronstadt tribute show since last fall and is excited to do it in Ronstadt’s hometown. “The response to this show has been amazing.”

The season opens Sept. 6 with the stars of the cult favorite “Napoleon Dynamite” talking about the movie 15 years after it hit theaters and became ingrained in our pop-culture subconscience. The event is a partnership with Film Fest Tucson.

Events are held at the Fox, 17 W. Congress St., and tickets are available now through foxtucsontheatre.ticketforce.com
