Josh Groban and Judith Hill charm Houston with ‘In the Round’ tour

Josh Groban and Judith Hill charm Houston with ‘In the Round’ tour

| November 15, 2013 | 0 Comments

Josh Groban’s ‘In the Round’ tour is called such for several reasons. The most obvious reason is the circular stage design that Groban’s team had assembled in the middle of Houston’s Toyota Center. Another big reason is because this tour really shows how full circle Groban has come. The young singer has almost become larger than life — not only singing on his albums and selling out arenas, but also making guest appearances on TV shows and major award events. Yet on this tour, Groban reminds everyone of his humble beginnings and how thankful he is to his mentors who gave him a break, and his fans for their undying support. Groban also completes the circle by bringing a fresh, rising singer on tour with him as his opener, offering Judith Hill the same support that he received when he was just starting out before he grew into his current legendary status.

Regina Spektor & Only Son put the ‘music’ back in the Music Hall

| November 9, 2012 | 0 Comments

For a place called the “Music Hall,” the Kansas City venue rarely sees a live band performance (it usually hosts theater productions). It’s a pity that it doesn’t pursue musicians more because it was the perfect setting for the Regina Spektor and Only Son concert.
