Comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias (pictured above) will bring his Beyond The Fluffy World Tour at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 17. Tickets cost $55 to $95. Iglesias was featured in The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 40 Comedy Players of 2018 issue alongside Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Lorne Michaels. Iglesias’ globally appealing comedy stays mostly clean and his non-controversial material appeals to audiences of all ages and walks of life. He is in production as star and executive producer of an upcoming multi-cam comedy series for Netflix, “Mr. Iglesias.” The series will have 10 half-hour episodes and will premiere later this year.
Straight No Chaser tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 25, for the group’s show at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 3. Tickets cost $59.50 to $74.50. A cappella group Straight No Chaser is neither strait-laced nor straight-faced. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV and CD releases.
Blue Öyster Cult with guests The Outlaws will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 17. For more than four decades, Blue Öyster Cult has been performing intelligent hard rock worldwide. The Long Island, N.Y.-based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both mainstream critical acclaim and commercial success. They're known for songs including “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” “Godzilla,” and the melodic “Burnin’ for You.” The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica and was listed in VH1’s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time. Joining BÖC is Tampa band The Outlaws, known for their triple-guitar rock attack and three-part country harmonies. For 40 years, the Southern Rock group has hits including “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky,” “There Goes Another Love Song,” “Green Grass and High Tides,” “Song for You,” and more.
James Owen Presents: Classical Mystery Tour — A Tribute to The Beatles at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 1. Tickets cost $39 to $59. The four musicians in Classical Mystery Tour look and sound just like The Beatles. The show presents more than two dozen Beatles tunes performed note-for-note and live.
