Chart Topping Crooner Chris Isaak in Concert THIS Sunday!

ALBUQUERQUE, NM—Enjoy a summer night outdoors with the sounds of pop crooner Chris Isaak, this Sunday, July 3, 8 p.m. at the Zoo. Presented by the New Mexico BioPark Society, this show is a special Go Wild fundraiser concert benefiting the ABQ BioPark.

Throughout his impressive recording career—from his stunning 1985 debut to this latest release—Chris Isaak has tunefully and artfully explored the good, the bad and the ugly of love, as well as other matters of profound human interest.

“This concert is a chance to see an amazing artist at a really good price,” said Maryann Torrez, Special Events and Operations Manager. “The great value benefits Chris Isaak fans and the BioPark since this is a fundraiser.”

One of his best known songs, “Wicked Game,” reached No. 6 on the 1991 Billboard pop charts and featured in David Lynch film “Wild at Heart.” The song’s black and white video, directed by Herb Ritts, featuring model Helena Christensen frolicking on the beach with Isaak, won MTV Video Music Awards’ Best Male Video and ranked #13 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Videos.

Some of his other popular hits, both from 1995’s “Forever Blue” include “Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing,” featured in Stanley Kubrick's film, “Eyes Wide Shut” starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, and the significant “Somebody’s Crying” which resulted in Grammy nominations for both the single and album.
