Without romance as inspiration, The Beatles would have been forced to write hits such as “All You Need is Schadenfreude.” Feel the power of love with this GrouponLive deal to see Joe Cocker with Huey Lewis & The News at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands. For $50, you get two tickets for reserved seating in the rear of section 105, 106, 109, or 110 on Saturday, July 21, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $147.30 value, including all fees).
Two of music’s most legendary acts give fans a one-two punch of rock and soul as the true grit of Joe Cocker meets the winsome bar-band blues of Huey Lewis & The News. Although John Belushi gave it his best shot, Joe Cocker's untamed tonsils and fearless flailing are inimitable, allowing the gravelly singer to famously transform tender tunes, such as “With a Little Help from My Friends” and “You Are So Beautiful,” into histrionic, heartfelt epics sung with the passion of a man eating his way out of a limestone quarry. Voted one of Rolling Stone’s
100 Greatest Singers of All Time, Joe lets his golden throat exfoliate ears as he belts out his seminal hits, along with tracks from his latest album, Hard Knocks.
Since the early 1980s, Huey Lewis & The News’ blend of blue-eyed soul and pure pop savvy has been staking its claim in the hearts of millions of music fans. Nineteen Top 10 singles––each custom built for convertible cruises, courting a loved one, or enabling Marty McFly’s existence––endlessly populate summer’s mixtape to itself. With his backup band The News laying down seamless rhythms, lead singer Huey Lewis charms audiences out of their seats with his earnest tenor and ace harmonica skills. Expect to hear classics such as “The Heart of Rock and Roll” and “I Want a New Drug” played with zest while Huey dodges paper-plane marriage proposals hurled by lovelorn fans.
