Live music treats fans to visual details that they would never get from listening to a CD, including the singer's slick dance moves, the bassist's double-neck guitar, and the triangle player's tears over never getting to play. Get your melodies unadulterated with today's Groupon: for $83, you get one ticket in sections 106, 107, 117, or 118 to see Sade and special guest John Legend at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville on Sunday, July 3, at 8 p.m. (a $150 value before fees, or up to a $166.60 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Seating will be assigned on a first-purchased, first-served basis, with tickets available for pickup from Will Call before the show.
Fronted by British-Nigerian lead singer Sade Adu, Grammy-winning band Sade has seduced eardrums with a potent mélange of R & B, soul, and jazz for nearly 30 years. Performing songs from the new compilation album The Ultimate Collection, Sade will delight fans with greatest hits as well as a smattering of brand-new songs, melding soul-stroking vocals with eye-tickling dancing and onstage spectacle. Special guest John Legend will also throw his honeyed voice into the ring, soothing ears that have been damaged by the cacophony of city life and the screeching of prima-donna chalkboards.
Today's deal gives music lovers the opportunity to feed tune-hungry souls at the Mohegan Sun Arena, where 10,000 seats provide plenty of room to accommodate stationary dance moves and pockets overflowing with sneaked-in marshmallows.
