|Harry Connick, Jr. is coming to The Wharton Center in East Lansing, Michigan!|
Ugh! We're going to miss it again... the opportunity to see Harry Connick, Jr. Years ago we were in Chicago, and per chance his name was on the marquee at the local theater. He was there!!! And I wanted to see him. A quick inquiry told me what I suspected might be true...there were no tickets available. Now he's coming to East Lansing on March 1, and we're going to have to miss him again. Why? Because I just paid tuition (which means 'no mun-no fun,' as my mom used to irritatingly say to me ;) ), and tickets are going faaaaaaaaaaaast!
That's okay though, I've got about 15 of his CDs loaded onto my iPod, and we've got two of his Christmas specials on DVD. There is no shortage of Harry Connick, Jr. in this household. ;)
For you though, if you live in the area...grab these tickets while they're still available and go!!
Believe you me, they're selling out fast!

The shows will feature music from Connick’s vast musical catalog, including songs from his most recent releases “Smokey Mary” and “Every Man Should Know.” To date, Connick has released 29 albums, won three Grammy Awards and two Emmy Awards, and garnered sales of 28-million.
With Every Man Should Know, Connick triumphs once again, with a depth of feeling that signals another milestone for one of the music world’s most multi-faceted artists. Critics have been quick to agree with People Magazine calling it “impressive,” and the Boston Globe saying the album features “his most thoughtful and personal songs to date," and says its "an album every Harry Connick, Jr. fan should own."
Connick recently returned for a second year as judge on American Idol, with “season 14” of the show premiering in January 2015. Since his addition to the judges’ panel, critics and fans alike have praised Connick’s contributions to the show, with Variety proclaiming that Connick “brings fun back to American Idol,” and Entertainment Weekly raving that he brings a “frank honesty but also lighthearted energy” to the show, “offering thoughtful critiques” resulting in a “fun, rollicking viewing experience.” Regarding his debut as a judge in “season 13,” USA Today stated that “Connick deserves most of the praise for what promises to be a creative turnaround for Idol… While Connick can be as tough as he needs to be, he’s also charming, engaging and, when he wants to be, hysterically funny.”
