Music and Cleveland go hand-in-hand, and if you've ever encountered our insurance agency, you know we’ve got a lot for music lovers.
Part of being a fully-rounded music lover is exposing yourself to as many different genres as possible.
Well, this autumn there will be lots of opportunities for music lovers to get out and see an array of great, musically diverse shows. There are too many to list, but we’ve selected five of the big ones for you, in case you want to explore or expand your tastes.
Matchbox Twenty & Counting Crows – Sept. 20, Blossom Music Center
This double feature of soulful bands from the ‘90s and ‘00s is going to be so packed full of fantastic radio hits you probably won’t stop singing all night.
Either one of these bands could be worth a trip on their own, but both of them playing together? That’s a show worth getting out for.
Olivia Newton-John – Nov. 12, Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park
She still sounds great after all these years. From Grease to her big #1 hits, she’s going to put on an all-star show of favorites that both old fans and new fans alike will enjoy.
This is sure to be a fun show that is going to bring back great memories of our youth!
Jay-Z – Nov. 19, Quicken Loans Arena
Are there any hip-hop stars bigger than Jay-Z? Probably not. He’s sold over 100 million records, won 21 Grammys, and has had 14 records go to #1. That’s amazing!
Even more amazing is that he’s still doing it and doing it as well as he ever did. He’ll be hitting Cleveland in November. Are you going?
Joe Bonamassa – Nov. 25, Connor Palace - Playhouse Square Center
This modern blues legend has played with B.B. King, Stephen Stills, Eric Clapton, Foreigner, Buddy Guy, Steve Winwood, Derek Trucks and more – and he’s only 40 years old!
If you enjoy seeing what a blues great can do on the guitar, this is a show you won’t want to miss.
Katy Perry – Dec. 10, Quicken Loans Arena
She’s one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, and one of the most provocative. This fall she’s bringing her huge stage show to Cleveland.
No doubt the venue will be loaded with screaming fans waiting to hear Roar and California Gurls. She’s touring to support her newest album, Witness.
It’s a music town, so don’t be shy about getting out there and taking advantage of it. And don’t forget the smaller venues, too. There are dozens of shows coming up. (Check with Craig on Twitter for all the details you could ever want.) Guaranteed at least a few will interest you.
