Brian Regan

December 5, 2015

Critics and peers agree, Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The "perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality" (Wall Street Journal), Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations. His clean language and sharp, sarcastic obersations on everyday life have led him to be known as the "comedian's comedian".

Michael Bolton

December 8, 2015

Former hard rocker and master of the pop-rock ballad, Michael Bolton returns with a new album of well-known songs from the Movies. Hear his new takes on silver screen classics on this tour, alongside older cuts like When A Man Loves A Woman and Georgia On My Mind.

Darlene Love

December 16, 2015

As one of the biggest voices of the 60s, Darlene Love lent her pipes to everyone from Dionne Warwick to The Beach Boys and featured on some of the decades most unforgettable songs. Even when she wasn't credited (here's looking at you, Phil Spector) her unmistakable vocal was able to get people to stop and pay attention. Now she heads off on tour in support of her brand new record, 'Introducing Darlene Love.'

Dennis DeYoung

February 13, 2016

One of the founding members of the 70s rock band Styx, Dennis DeYoung is a songwriter of extraordinary diversity, whether it be heartfelt ballads (Babe), synth-pop (Mr. Roboto) or epic theatrical prog-rock (The Best of Times). While he has enjoyed a very successful solo career (including the Top 10 hit Desert Moon), for this tour he'll be concentrating only on Styx material, his brand new backing band helping to recreate some of the finest moments that 70s progressive rock had to offer.

Ian Anderson: Jethro Tull's The Rock Opera

April 1, 2016

Ian Anderson presents classic hits from his former band, Jethro Tull in this brand new rock opera that tells the story of the real Jethro Tull, a 17th Century English agriculturalist who is seen as the godfather of modern farming practice as his inventions were pivotal to the agricultural revolution. Interwoven through this imaginative tale (set somewhere in the not-to-distant future) Anderson will weave beloved songs such as 'Heavy Horses', 'Farm on the Freeway', 'Aqualung', alongside special virtual guests. This is Tull, but not like you've ever experienced.
