Get Tickets for Radiolab Live: Symmetry

Monday, February 07, 2011

Radiolab is hitting the road for a three-city tour (New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle) this March! Jad and Robert will be performing an upcoming episode on symmetry, and how it shapes our very existence—from the origin of the universe, to what we see when we look in the mirror.

We'll search for love in ancient Greece, head to modern-day Princeton for a look inside our brains, and revisit an unlikely headline from the Oval Office circa 1979. And one of our favorite musicians, the amazing Zoe Keating, will be on stage to provide live cello scoring!

Get tickets for RADIOLAB LIVE: SYMMETRY (plus complete details on each performance) below:

Monday, March 14 – NYU Skirball Center / New York City, NY

Wednesday, March 23 – Royce Hall at UCLA / Los Angeles, CA

Wednesday, March 30 – The 5th Avenue Theatre / Seattle, WA

buy theater tickets

I was excited at the prospect of going out without people asking "why is there a goat on a cow on your T-shirt?"

Please consider us Texans on your next tour. Come to Dallas!

I really enjoy the podcasts. Turned my nephew on to Radiolab during a recent family vacation. Later that day he was busy deleting songs from his iPhone to make room for Radiolab podcasts. If you are on a car trip with me you will be listening to Radiolab most of the trip.

Got tickets to the Seattle show as soon as I found out it was happening. Total lucky strike as now they're sold out :) I've listened to every single RadioLab show, I can't be more excited about this!

I am totally heartbroken to discover that the Seattle show sold out before I bought tickets. I promised a dear friend, and fellow Radio Lab addict that I would take him as the best birthday present EVER. Now what? Please Oh Please schedule another show in Seattle.

You gotta add a second night in Los Angeles! I love symmetry and I love Radiolab!!

My friends wrote a song about me once and one of the lyrics goes as follows: "...his symmetrical face takes me to a symmetrical place...".

Duff Moses from Santa Monica, CA

Just hear War of the Worlds show.
Really fabulous and important. I would only have hoped that when you thread the needle at the end re- modern media you had maybe spent a minute or two more to hammer the point, maybe some clips from some of our more colorful political "comentariat".
Excellent and entertaining show none the less.

Feb. 13 2011 03:03 PM
Dannnn from Detroit

Won't you take pity on Detroit like everyone else in the world? Will show ruin porn 4 Radiolab.

Just got my UCLA tickets. So, so jazzed. Your show on words chokes me up every time I get to the part when the guy realizes "everything has a name." Can't wait.

Nowell from San Francisco, CA

So glad you guys are going on the road! I'd like to post another vote for San Francisco. We LOVE you guys here. I could also list at least ten friends off the top of my head who would be thrilled to see a live Radiolab!

With Zoe Keating no less. Man... might have to find me some plane tickets to Seattle...

More live shows! Come to Denver! I will be your #1 publicity agent.

Feb. 10 2011 02:51 PM
Rachel P. from Los Angeles

I love Radiolab and would love to see the live show, but do you realize the Ticketmaster fees are a 33% markup on the ticket price for a single ticket? Maybe next time you're in LA you can book at the Skirball or a non-Ticketmaster location.

Please consider a future stop in Omaha, Nebraska. We're a nice mid-country stopover, with comfortable amenities. Plus, you would have a very grateful and welcoming audience.

When are you going to come to San Francisco? Forget LA. Come to the city where the turmoil is a positive thing.

Feb. 08 2011 08:10 PM
Max from SEATTLE!!! ZOMG!!!

Literally the minute I heard you were coming to Seattle I bought tickets. I ran to my computer. So excited. I cannot express through the computer my excitement. :)

This sounds like a subject that your show should cover. Soft robotics. A completely fascinating idea.

Feb. 08 2011 02:56 PM

Come to Columbus Ohio.

Bummer that the NYC show is already sold out. I was excited at the prospect of going out without people asking "why is there a goat on a cow on your T-shirt?"

Congrats to everyone that was quick enough to get tickets!

Feb. 07 2011 11:43 PM
Debora Munczek from NYC

Alas, by the time I read your email notice, at 9 this evening, your NYC show was already sold out. My 12yo son Ben, as avid a fan as me, was so disappointed, as am I. He was more than willing to attend school sleep-deprived the next morning for the sake of seeing you guys in vivo.
How about adding another night or two, there must be many many others who will be equally disappointed in NY,

bee tufts from dahlonega, ga.

Radiolab at the Zoo wouldn't let go of me. Compassionate human spirit vs. complete disrespect of life were dissected and displayed. I am puzzled and dismayed by the profound cruelty some of us show towards animals, and beamingly proud of those who push so hard to take care of them.

Thanks to Radiolab for providing me another piece to ponder. I will be discussing At the Zoo with my students tomorrow.

Please consider stopping in Chicago during your next tour. We love you here!

Elyson Serrano from Sacramento, California

Well I know its a long shot. But you guys should visit Sacramento!

or Northern California.

I'll head to Frisco if I have to.

Well you guys are awesome and my warmest regards!
