Country musicians possess a knack for storytelling, which explains why most artists in the genre started out as kindergarten teachers or Stephen King. Treat ears to sonically spun yarns with this GrouponLive deal to Arena Theatre. Choose between two options:
Legendary country crooner George Jones cracks open a frothing keg of No. 1 hits and heartbreakers as his tour chugs through the Arena Theatre. A Country Music Hall of Famer and recipient of the National Medal of Arts, George Jones charted the blueprint of modern-country music with his distinctive voice, brutally honest lyrics, and cast-iron liver. From rockabilly stompers such as "White Lightning" to 10-hankie saline spigots such as "He Stopped Loving Her Today," his unflinchingly confessional classics will strike a chord with generations of fans during a high-energy performance that forever shuts the door on his "No Show" days. Also known as "The Possum" for his facial features and immunity to rabies, Jones continues to out-moonshine modern-country whippersnappers, even at the tender age of 80. Motown veterans the Temptations continue to tour the globe after five decades of enchanting crowds with their five-part harmonies and sharp choreography. From honey-sweet pop tracks such as “My Girl” to psychedelic-influenced grooves such as “Cloud Nine,” the group's smooth soul sound and exultant melodies have withstood the test of time and numerous lineup changes. Clad in matching suits and lobster bibs, the band members snap their fingers and slide side to side while belting out tracks from their Billboard-crushing catalog, including tunes from their latest release, Still Here.
At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.
