Concertgoers sometimes leave with a memento handed down from the stage, such as a drumstick, a set list, or a plastic baggy full of famous-person sweat. Go home happy with this GrouponLive deal to see Gotye at the Fox Theatre. For $25, you get one G-Pass for seating on the floor in sections F1–F6, rows U–QQ; the mezzanine in sections M2 and M6, rows AA–EE; or the balcony in sections GA3 and GA4, rows E–K, on Tuesday, September 18, at 7 p.m. (up to a $55.70 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Gotye is best known for delivering the haunting, finger-pointing lyrics of "Somebody That I Used to Know," but his new album, Making Mirrors, finds him working in a variety of moods, including on the joyful, Martha and the Vandellas–inspired “I Feel Better.” The new songs also incorporate more live instrumentation to expand on his usual paint box of intriguing vintage samples, as a 10-piece band will be joining him on his fall tour. "These are by far my most ambitious shows to date," he wrote on his Facebook page. "There will be no backing tracks used. All visuals will be triggered live.”
Youthful duo Chairlift thrills fans with dreamy synth-pop and cleverly repackaged '80s beats, continuing to enjoy success after its 2012 sophomore album, Something, which Pitchfork praised as "truly great pop." Zammuto also heats up the stage with an archive of sound clips collaged into a digital landscape of rhythm and instrumentation enhanced with vocals that roll and flow like liquid.
Fox Theatre lures crowds and musical acts alike with an auditorium drenched in the glimmer and charm of theater’s history. Surrounding a proscenium stage draped in red is enough gold to please a group of kings or outfit one rapper with his requisite bling. Bas-reliefs and intricate patterns line the walls while below, rows of seats on the floor and balcony beckon with simple comfort.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
