Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon to the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City. Choose from the following three concerts:
- For $30, you get one mezzanine ticket in sections 27-30, rows A-G (a $96.30 value) to Mary J. Blige on Wednesday, October 20, at 8:15 p.m.
- For $20, you get one mezzanine ticket in sections 27-30, rows A-G (a $47.35 value) to Heads of State on Sunday, October 24, at 8:15 p.m.
- For $15, you get one mezzanine ticket in sections 27-30, rows A-G (a $34.75 value) to Snoop Dogg & Mike Epps on Wednesday, November 3, at 8:15 p.m.
Since 1991, Mary J. Blige has provided the backing track for the nation's torrid romances, painful breakups, and lovelorn PowerPoint presentations. The soulful songstress's distinctive mingling of classic R&B flourishes and sultry hip-hop beats has sold more than 50 million albums and won her nine Grammys. On October 20, she'll take a break from performing at presidential inaugurations to rock the Gibson Amphitheatre's pristine acoustics, moving hips and spirits in equal measure with chart-toppers such as "Not Gon' Cry," "Family Affair," and "Real Love." Heads of State, meanwhile, reunites three of the top crooners from R&B boy band New Edition—Bobby Brown, Ralph Tresvant, and Johnny Gill—for a power trio of passionate vocals and smooth rhythms. For those who like their music cut with a little comedy, Snoop Dogg teams up with actor, comedian, and rapper Mike Epps in "Imagine That," a live concert experience that tells a musical short story about a pair of nightclub owners who concoct an audacious scheme to escape from prison. Whichever R&B extravaganza you attend, buy an extra Groupon so that you can sensually slow-groove with someone other than your marionette.
