A Night With Janis Joplin is a blues-rock theatrical event that captures the legendary singer's life and legacy with all of the live intensity of an actual Joplin concert. Mary Bridget Davies stars as the iconic rock goddess in a breakout performance that has audiences dancing in the aisles and critics raving. Featuring powerful musical numbers including "Cry Baby," "Piece of My Heart," "Me and Bobby McGee," "Summertime" and "Mercedes Benz," as well as one song Joplin never formally recorded, the show boasts a full band and cast who bring Joplin's story to the stage along with some of her famous musical influences, including Bessie Smith, Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone.

Quotes & Highlights
- Check out the official Barenaked Ladies website.
"I love playing outside in the summertime," says Barenaked Ladies frontman Ed Robertson. "To travel and hang around with a bunch of bands, and get a chance to do some collaboration is part of the magic of a summer tour." The tour's ominous title is a nod to what could be a potentially dreadful economy for live music, and superstitions about the end of the world. "I'm a man of science, and therefore put zero stock in all of the disastrous predictions about the year 2012," says Robertson. "But just in case, I think everybody should come out and see one last great summer concert tour! It can't hurt, right? Here's hoping the Mayans just got tired of chiseling!"
