Nothing can match the thrill of seeing a concert in-person, not even watching it on a high-definition Blu-Ray or listening to it on a high-definition parrot. Get out of your cage with today's GrouponLive deal to see Kirk Whalum and Jonathan Butler at Arena Theatre on Sunday, April 29, at 8 p.m. For $45, you get two tickets in rows Q, R, S, T, or U in sections 1–15 (a $94 value, including all ticketing fees).

For this show, nationally renowned tenor saxophonist Kirk Whalum brings his silky-smooth, gospel-soaked jazz, teamed up with Grammy-nominated Jonathan Butler's clear vocal stylings and crisp guitar. Whalum's decades-long career has taken him to sessions with top singers—including an appearance on Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"—collecting 11 Grammy nominations and one win along the way. Butler’s childhood in South Africa inspired the themes of racial segregation and injustice in his music, drawing upon personal experiences to sing about the spiritual power of change.

Arena Theatre

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.
