Now’s your chance to see beloved crooner Chris Isaak in concert at your favorite Oregon casino. Before you buy your Chris Isaak tickets for his February 16th show at Spirit Mountain, here’s what you need to know about his career.
Who is Chris Isaak?
Chris Isaak is a talented musician and actor, widely known for his hit song “Wicked Game,” his self-titled sitcom The Chris Isaak Show, and his associations with the popular film director David Lynch.
Chris Isaak Music
Often compared to Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley, Chris Isaak is known for his particular crooner style, which mimics Rock & Roll music from the 1950s. Isaak has released 12 studio albums and his music has been used in a wide range of television shows and movies, including Blue Velvet, Eyes Wide Shut, and True Romance.
Chris Isaak Songs
Chris Isaak began his professional singing career in 1985 and many of his songs tackle love, loss, and heartbreak. Not only is he famous for his particular style of crooning, he also incorporates a signature falsetto, as well as his propensity for using heavy reverb in his music. Because his career spans many decades, it’s hard to know which songs he’ll play at his Spirit Mountain concert, but we’re crossing our fingers for these hits:
“Wicked Game” by Chris Isaak
Chris Isaak is perhaps best known for his song “Wicked Game,” which was a Billboard top-ten hit in 1991, two years after its release. The song gained popularity after it was featured in David Lynch’s film, Wild at Heart. Since its release, it’s been covered by a wide range of musical artists, including HIM, Il Divo, and Gemma Hayes.
“Somebody’s Cryin’” by Chris Isaak
Isaak famously wrote “Somebody’s Cryin’” inside a walk-in closet at a friend’s party, shortly after being dumped by his then-girlfriend. And the lyrics really capture the real-life pain that accompanies a breakup. In addition to becoming Isaak’s second-highest charting single, it was also featured on the hit TV shows Party of Five and Beavis and Butthead.
Chris Isaak Tour
Chris Isaak’s 2019 tour honored the 30th anniversary of his third album, Heart-Shaped World, and we expect him to play some songs from that album at his show at Spirit Mountain Casino.
