Ring in the New Year with the silk-and-diamond decadence of The Great Gatsby as Baz Lurhmann's best films spring to life during this spectacular New Year's Eve party. Begin your stylish evening with a three-course dinner, followed by a performance of the popular show For the Record: Baz Luhrmann, featuring powerhouse performers from music, stage and screen reenacting iconic scenes and songs from Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet, Strictly Ballroom and The Great Gatsby. After the show, Rockwell will be transformed into a Gatsby-style 1920s' retreat. Listen to live music while enjoying the delicious buffet and glass of champagne included in the ticket price. If you'd prefer to skip the seated dinner and show and commence straight to partying the night away, the VIP Party Only option takes place in Rockwell's dazzling second-floor VIP salon decorated Gatsby style, where you can enjoy the buffet, a champagne toast, a balloon drop and live music.

with India.Arie and Vaughn Anthony
Having just completed his most successful international tour to date, six-time Grammy Award winner John Legend will bring his show to the Greek Theatre on Tuesday, September 1 and Wednesday, September 2 in support of his chart-topping album Evolver. India.Arie and Vaughn Anthony will be supporting. Known for connecting with fans during his dynamic live shows, Legend's concert will feature many of his biggest singles - from Evolver's "Green Light" and "Everybody Knows" to the classic songs from his previous albums - all backed by an extraordinary 11 piece band.
The summer tour comes after Evolver debuted in the #4 slot on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart late last year. A crossover sensation, Evolver has already reached the #1 position on America's R&B Album chart, #1 on the Album Retailer chart and #1 on the Digital Albums chart. The first single "Green Light" was a Top 10 hit on the Rhythmic Top 40 radio chart, while also reaching the Top 5 at Urban Mainstream Radio. One of the top releases of 2008, Evolver is John Legend's first full-length studio album in two years. Guests on EVOLVER include Estelle, OutKast's Andre 3000, R&B/pop superstar Brandy and John's longtime collaborator Kanye West.
Songs on Evolver include the hit singles "Green Light" (featuring Andre 3000) and "Everybody Knows," as well as "It's Over" (featuring Kanye West), "No Other Love" (featuring Estelle), "Satisfaction," "This Time," "Cross The Line," "I Love, You Love," "Good Morning," "If You're Out There," and "Quickly" (featuring Brandy).
Special guest Grammy winning singer/songwriter India.Arie will open select shows on the tour. Her recent album Testimony: Vol. 2, Love & Politics, recently debuted at #3 on the Billboard charts.
John Legend will team up with non-profit, REVERB, to help "green" this tour. Their environmental efforts will include coordination with venues and local caterers to ensure and facilitate the use of green products and practice, along with neutralizing CO2 emissions from venue energy use, hotels, flights, and touring vehicles. The tour's "carbon footprint" was calculated by REVERB and neutralized by financially supporting the construction of new renewable energy projects such as wind farms. As well, eco-friendly merchandise options will be available for fans and the John Legend On-line Ridesharing Service will encourage and assist carpooling to shows. A John Legend Greening Website will include tips and calls to action for fans with prize incentives.
More About John Legend
Released in late December 2004, John Legend's debut album, Get Lifted, peaked at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and became America's #1 Top R&B/Hip-Hop album in January 2005. A critical and commercial triumph, Get Lifted earned John an astounding eight Grammy nominations -- he won Best New Artist, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance ("Ordinary People") and Best R&B album -- while selling more than three million copies worldwide.
John's second collection, Once Again, entered the Billboard Top 200 at #3 shortly after its release in October 2006, peaking at #1 on the R&B Album Sales chart, earning an RIAA platinum certification while securing two Grammy nominations: "Save Room" (for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance) and "Heaven" (which won Best Male R&B Vocal Performance).
John racked up his fifth overall career Grammy win in 2006 when "Family Affair" -- a track he'd cut with Joss Stone and Van Hunt for Different Strokes by Different Folks, a Sly & the Family Stone tribute album (Epic/Legacy) -- took home top honors in the Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals category. In 2009, John received his sixth Grammy Award for his duet with R&B/soul legend Al Green on "Stay With Me (By The Sea)."
