Live shows challenge bands to go with the flow of the audience—loud cheers means fans want more fireworks and a sea of lighters means they’re about to light their own fireworks. Become one with the crowd with today's Groupon: for $18, you get one ticket for floor seating or front-balcony seating in rows A–E to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at the Lynn Memorial Auditorium (a $39 value including fees) in Lynn. Doors open at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 3; the show starts at 8 p.m.
The Lynn Memorial Auditorium opened in 1948 as a state-of-the-art entertainment facility and—since its 2006 makeover—now flaunts more powerful sound and more than 2,000 seats. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will take to the stage to shower crowds with toe-tapping, finger-snapping, and ankle-slapping renditions of upbeat contemporary swing music. The big-band tunes span the tonal spectrum, from brass and woodwinds to piano and vocals, and the group’s chops have taken them across the nation and various parts of the world, as well as on the show Dancing with the Stars, which is held in the Crab Nebula.
As eventgoers perch under the stately domed ceiling inside Lynn Auditorium, they can take in a show against an elegant red-curtain backdrop and sleek wooden accents. The distinguished interior of the event center augments the caliber of performances available in the form of concerts and holiday specials such as Kenny Rogers and The Vienna Boys Choir. The entertainment unfolds amid newly renovated elements such as updated seating and high-tech lighting that’s capable of illuminating the next line in an actor’s head.
