Rock,Pop

The B-52s (Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Keith Strickland and Cindy Wilson), perhaps best known for their hit song 'Love Shack,' formed in Athens, GA back in the late '70s and named themselves after Southern slang for a particular beehive hairdo that resembled the nose of an aircraft. Their first single 'Rock Lobster,' recorded in 1978, was an underground success, and on the strength of their energetic, post-punk live shows at such legendary venues as CBGB in New York City and Max's Kansas City, their self-titled debut sold more than 500,000 copies. Now, more than 30 years and 20 million albums sold later, the group is still one of the most beloved party bands in existence. The touring band includes members Sterling Campbell, Paul Gordon and Tracy Wormworth.

Les Miserables: National Tour

Musical

Cameron Mackintosh presents the new production of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Tony Award-winning musical phenomenon, "Les Misérables," direct from an acclaimed two-and-a-half-year return to Broadway. This beloved musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schonberg is based on Hugo's famous novel of 19th-century France. The action begins in 1815 as Jean Valjean is condemned to 19 years of hard labor for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his family. When he is released on parole, he finds only hatred and suspicion. Meeting one man who believes in him, Valjean breaks his parole to begin a new life. The story truly begins as Jean Valjean crosses the landscape of France, always pursued by the righteous police inspector Javert. From Valjean's adoption and love of the orphan Cosette, to the darkly funny plots of the thieving Thenardiers, from the soaring revolutionary fire set by student rebels fighting in the streets of Paris to the final confrontation between Jean Valjean and Javert, this story is one of love, courage and redemption. As the now-famous lyric from the show says, "To love another person is to see the face of God."
