THE MUSIC, CULTURE, AND POLITICS OF GENERATION X.
He’ll be back! After dazzling Kamloops audiences with the stories from the Baby Boom generation, virtuoso writer/performer Rick Miller returns to the Sagebrush stage with a sequel about his own generation: Gen X. Picking up where BOOM left off, at Woodstock in August of ‘69, BOOM X takes audiences on a magical, multimedia journey all the way to 1995, when the internet started to envelop our lives. Miller plays over 100 colourful characters from the days of disco, the oil crisis, Watergate, the Cold War, video games, punk rock, the (second) British Invasion, and more.
Filled with history, music, and personal stories, the 70s, 80s and 90s boom to life on stage surrounded by Miller’s signature style of stunning visuals and mind-blowing impersonations, BOOM X will take audience of all ages on an explosive journey through a generation that continues to shape our modern world.
