America's Got Talent

October 10, 2015

The hit TV talent show goes on tour with some of its most dynamic finalists and fan favorites from throughout its history. Don't miss your chance to see your favorite act live, including Season 8's comedian Taylor Williamson and hand balancing act The Kristef Brothers!

Indigo Girls

October 16, 2015

The Indigo Girls have steadfastly forged their own path through the music world for over two decades, and they don't show any sign of slowing down just yet. The duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have now released 13 albums of breezy and lyrically adroit folk-rock, first emerging in the late 1980s alongside fellow Georgians REM, and are readying the release of a new record in 2015.

Jay Leno

October 29, 2015

Love him or hate him, the hugely controversial Leno followed in the footsteps of legendary NBC late-night hosts Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson as the host of the Emmy Award-winning and top-rated "The Tonight Show," until his last show in 2014. You would think that he would be eager for some downtime - instead, he continues to hone his sharp, good humored roasting and standup skills at engagements across the country, often exceeding 300 dates per year!

Brian Setzer Orchestra: Christmas Rocks

November 17, 2015

The Brian Setzer Orchestra, fronted by three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer, has become a Christmas staple as they tour the USA each holiday season taking their Christmas Rocks concerts across the country! Enjoy some of Setzer's guitar classics like Rock This Town and Stray Cat Strut as well as plenty of sing-a-long Christmas classics.

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.'
