A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ZZ Top has delighted fans for more than 40 years with its witty lyrics and bluesy rock ‘n’ roll sounds. Les Paul–wielding guitarist Billy Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard—the band's original three members—combine their musical powers and Santa-shaming facial hair to create a uniquely appealing blend of Southern rock and blues, making the band one of the most successful in rock history. Today’s deal gives music lovers the chance to catch the venerable trio at The Woods at Fontanel, an outdoor venue—situated on the former estate of country-music maven Barbara Mandrell—with enough room for 4,500 concertgoers each sporting up to two standard human ears. Groupon holders will be seated in sections E, F, G, and H on a first-come, first-served basis, putting them close enough to make out every stage-bound guitar trick and beautifully chaotic microphone stampede.
Live musical acts hit the stage every night at Music City Bar & Grill, compelling feet to move and hips to request an encore. Holiday lights twinkle and guide waitstaff to tables where patrons order from a menu of hearty bar fare, which includes Angus-beef burgers, three-meat pizzas, and salads topped with grilled steak or chicken. At the pool tables, balls click together in time to the music, and outdoor seating gives people the chance to serenade the stars using voices normally reserved for sad lightbulbs.
In their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest 4 Times the Fun North American tour, the Globetrotters will add new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet farther than the official 3-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian.
When it comes to describing Kristin Chenoweth, "multitalented" is an understatement. Overlaying a soaring voice with sparkling charisma, Chenoweth won the 1999 Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Musical and originated the role of Glinda the Good Witch in the smash Broadway hit Wicked, earning both fame as the definitive incarnation of that character and the legal right to carry an Oz passport. Her forays into television have included an Emmy win for Pushing Daisies, a stint on The West Wing, a guest appearance on Glee, and a starring role in ABC's comedy GCB. Mixing classically trained control with the ability to call up a folksy twang from her childhood in Oklahoma, Chenoweth regales audiences with heartbreaking ballads and high-energy romps.

Games will take place at the Bridgestone Arena, equipped with a newly installed megatron that delights eyes with high-definition replays. The facility also boasts more than 17,000 seats, ensuring plenty of space for cheering fans and marionettes approximating the human action of cheering.
