Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band
Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band salutes the King of Pop with an extravagant showcase that spans four decades of his record-breaking career. The seven-piece collective has charmed the globe with its meticulous mimicry, keeping the eternal flame of Michael Jackson burning while giving old and new fans room to dance. With glitzy jackets, the signature glove, and synchronized choreography, Who’s Bad delivers a set stacked high with hits ranging from MJ’s wunderkind days in The Jackson 5 to his hyperbaric epilogue. With muscular horns, tectonic grooves, and ghost-tickling execution, the show gets audiences as close as they can to the legendary juggernaut without having to hang out with Macaulay Culkin.<p>

Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
