One of the most popular singer-songwriters in music today, Jennifer Nettles has achieved huge success as part of the multi-platinum group Sugarland. She's earned numerous accolades for her wonderful songwriting abilities, including Grammy, ACM and CMA Awards. Her new solo project, That Girl, finds Nettles showing off her beautiful voice in a variety of styles -- including country, gospel and '70s radio -- under the direction of super-producer Rick Rubin. On her headlining tour, Nettles delivers an emotionally powerful performance that touches on her Sugarland hits and new songs, including her album's title track and "Me Without You." Opening for Nettles is rising country artist and acclaimed songwriter Brandy Clark. Learn More

A charitable 2 stars. But as a longtime fan of the Cirque, it was really a disappointment. A couple of good acts (gymnastic, acrobatic, juggler types) in the Cirque tradition, and good live music. Really tedious clown acts: tired vaudville jokes and slapstick acts that went on forever. And beware the adult humor if you are bringing the kids!

Banana Shpeel is a roller-coaster mix of styles that blends comedy with tap, hip hop, eccentric dance and slapstick, all linked by a hilarious narrative that ignites a succession of wacky adventures. This is not circus, or a musical or a variety show, or even vaudeville. Get ready for an exciting fusion of genres, directed by David Shiner — accomplished comedic actor, Broadway creator and director of KOOZA from Cirque du Soleil.
