Progressive rock producer Alan Parsons hasn't toured much over the course of his lengthy career. He hasn't even played a proper show in Northeast Ohio in more than 15 years. But he's included Cleveland on his Alan Parsons Live Project: Greatest Hits Tour; he'll play at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 13, at the Cleveland Masonic Auditorium. Parsons, who's touring in support of his new CD, Alan Parsons Rock Symphony Project, just celebrated the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon, an album which he engineered. Parsons got his start as an assistant engineer at Abbey Road Studios and worked on the Beatles’ Abbey Road and Let It Be. His prog rock band the Alan Parsons Project had Top 40 hits with "Eye in the Sky," “Time” and "Don't Answer Me." Parsons will also greet fans and sign autographs at 8 p.m. on Monday, May 12 at Record Den in Mentor. Tickets are on sale now at paccleveland.com, ticketfly.com, or by phone at 216-432-2370.
