For his Segerstrom Center debut, the "King of Romance" will sing his greatest hits, including "Release Me" and "Quando, Quando, Quando," as well as perform a virtual duet with Sir Elton John and other songs from his latest album, Engelbert Calling, his first duets CD. With four Grammy nominations, 24 platinum records, 63 gold records, a Golden Globe Award for Entertainer of the Year and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Engelbert Humperdinck is a legend in the music industry. The "premier voice of the 20th century" (London Times) -- he's sold more than 150 million records to date -- has recorded everything from romantic ballads like "After the Lovin'" to the platinum-selling song "Lesbian Seagull" from Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.

The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs & Stories, Together On Stage info • Jul 14 2014 star this tip starred
Reviews & Ratings
Ani DiFranco began her blossoming music career at a mere nine years of age. Finding her passion through music, she learned to the play the guitar and within a short time, began performing Beatles covers in bars in her hometown of Buffalo, NY. At the age of 19, DiFranco moved to New York City and began to tour, playing in folk clubs, bars, festivals and coffeehouses around the Northeastern U.S. In the early ‘90s, she launched her own label, Righteous Babe Records and has gone on to release 20 studio albums and 10 albums of her widely popular live Bootleg series. In 2004, DiFranco won the Grammy Awards’ Best Recording Package for her album Evolve. The Buffalo News Network toasted her as “Buffalo’s Leading Lady of Rock Music,” while Rolling Stone described her as “Talented, fiercely independent and something of a heroine in the new folk underground.”
DiFranco’s unique style of folk combines her signature staccato style, rapid finger pickings and delivering many of her sophisticated and emphatic lyrics in rhythmic and beautiful speaking style. With a voice that can rock the boat one minute and rock the cradle the next, DiFranco has a sound like no other. Using the stage as both confessional and pulpit for more than two decades, this outspoken and ferocious folk-princess has explored an array of sensitive subjects and regularly tackled taboos and performed to capacity crowds across the country.
