The Color Purple: Jennifer Holliday

April 17-19, 2015

The Color Purple is a touching story of hope, inspiration and triumph, based on the novel by Alice Walker and the acclaimed film of the same name. Alice Walker's diverse and unforgettable characters come vividly to life on stage in this spellbinding musical, which has just announced a revival on Broadway starring Jennifer Hudson in her stage debut, Blending dance with blues, gospel, jazz, swing, rural roots and African music, this touring production stars Tony-winning singer and actress Jennifer Holliday!

Shen Yun Performing Arts

May 8-10, 2015

A glorious celebration of five thousand years of Chinese culture, Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music, integrating technique and influence from both East and West. A performance by Shen Yun is a presentation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from an ancient feudal period of time.

John Mulaney

May 16, 2015

With the face of a teenager and a deep, rich voice that belie his 32 years of age, the Emmy-winning John Mulaney is a relatively new kid on the comedy block, taking the scene by storm with his acerbic, intelligent observational humour. A writer for Saturday Night Live (see the hilarious 'Stefon' sketches) and star of his 2014 self-titled sitcom on Fox, Mulaney resonates with his generation as he weathers the climes of adulthood and uncertainty, all the while coming across as an adorable geek.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

June 3, 2015

With his trademark devil-may-care swagger, Noel Gallagher most often sets tongues wagging for speaking his mind, public spats and family feuds. The Brit rock progenitor is set to hit the headlines again, but this time he's setting out on tour under his solo moniker Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, a star-studded, psychedelic alt-rock outfit that's back with a vengeance.

John Mellencamp

June 16, 2015

John Mellencamp is embarking on a truly massive tour in 2015, in support of his latest record Plain Spoken. Released on September 23rd, the new record is Mellencamp's first in four years and is set to be yet another impressive entry in the catalogue of the man they call "The Voice of the Heartland".
