Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra
In the 1970’s and 80’s, singer/songwriter/guitarist Jeff Lynne led the symphonic rock band Electric Light Orchestra through hit after hit. They scored classic singles like “Don’t Bring Me Down,” “Turn to Stone,” “Can’t Get It Out of My Head” and more, selling over 50 million records around the world. After a long hiatus, Lynne has returned to the helm of ELO, and they’ll be playing a string of shows in California, Colorado, Texas, New York and more.
One of the newest faces in country music, Luke Combs has hit pay dirt with his debut album, This One’s for You. The album topped the charts when it was released earlier this year, on the back of two huge hit singles, “Hurricane” and “When It Rains It Pours.” This fun-loving performer will take his Don’t Tempt Me With a Good Time Tour on the road in February, with shows at the Roseland Theatre in Portland, Oregon; the House of Blues in Boston; The Complex in Salt Lake City and many more.
The Canadian rockers Barenaked Ladies sold have millions of albums over the last couple of decades, not just with radio smashes like “One Week,” “Pinch Me” and “Brian Wilson,” but as a highly entertaining children’s band, as well. The band’s Last Summer on Earth Tour will bring the fun to Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Chicago and more.
Reba, Brooks and Dunn
Sometimes artists can become such icons that they don’t need a full name, and Reba, Brooks and Dunn certainly qualify. This joint tour between the Queen of Country and the biggest country duo of all time have sold over 100 million albums and scored a staggering 40-plus No. 1 hits. You can expect to hear everything from “Fancy” to “Boot-Scootin’ Boogie,” to “Turn on the Radio” to “Cowgirls Don’t Cry” when these legends hit The Coliseum at Caesar’s Palace in March.
Disney on Ice
For nearly 40 years, Disney on Ice has created magic on ice skates, bringing some of the most beloved animated characters in history to life in front of families’ eyes. Disney will grace the ice with a variety of shows, including Frozen, Dare to Dream and Reach for the Stars to the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.; the Stockton Arena in California; the TD Garden in Boston and more, starting in January.
