While crooning makes impeccably handsome men appear vulnerable and sensitive, they're usually just trying to muffle the sounds of the therapist locked in their trunk. Catch a gifted singer in the act with today's GrouponLive deal: for $58, you get two tickets to see Chris Isaak at the Credit Union Centre on Tuesday, August 16, at 7:30 p.m. Reserved seating is located in section P2 (a $99 value before fees, or up to a $117.50 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees).
Chris Isaak has proven to be a rockabilly Renaissance man during his more than 25 years in show business, with hit songs such as "Wicked Game," appearances in movies such as That Thing You Do!, and his own TV show on Showtime. Like a lovechild of Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley nurtured by supermodels, Chris’s smooth, dusty baritone and disarmingly tender falsetto seduces fans with a raucous swing and melodies heartbreaking enough to inspire happy couples to split up, just so they can sing along with more authenticity. Backed by Silvertone, his lifelong rhythm section of rustproof ringers, Chris and the gang turn a concert into a party packed with tunes culled from his catalogue of classics. Even though his live shows thrive on relentless showmanship and unpredictability, recent sets have been decorated in outlandish stage props, including a burning piano, a 35-pound mirrored suit, and a 20-foot tall pin-up girl inflated solely by bittersweet helium and the tears of panda couples torn asunder by zoo downsizing.
