Star Wars: A New Hope In Concert at Koger Center For The Arts

Star Wars: A New Hope In Concert

Get ready to jet into the cosmos and enjoy the most iconic space saga of all time in an outta this world evening! Whilst the film that started it all plays on a giant screen, you'll be treated to John Williams score live, played by a full orchestra, adding another dimension to the interstellar adventures of Luke, Leia and Han as they fight to save the universe from Darth Vader and the Empire.

Martin Lawrence at Colonial Life Arena

Martin Lawrence

Martin Lawrence, the original Bad Boy of comedy, is gearing up for the release of his long-awaited sequel 'Bad Boys: Ride or Die' with Will Smith, set for general release in summer 2024. But the actor/comedian/singer isn't resting on his laurels until that happy day, as he's hitting the road this year for the 'Y'all Know What It Is! Tour,' his first tour in 8 years. Outspoken on subjects such as relationships, family, and vocal opposition to police brutality, Lawrence's raw style shows no sign of mellowing as we head into the new year. Be warned - this comic takes no prisoners at his shows!

Hootie and the Blowfish at Colonial Life Arena

Hootie and the Blowfish

Hardly needing an introduction, Hootie and the Blowfish were a quintessential component of the 90s rock scene. They even feature on a (now classic) episode of Friends - and we all know that that show is the epitome of all things 90s. If you're still reeling from their break-up, you'll be very excited to hear that they are back together, ready to head on an extensive tour in 2024! Will you be one of the lucky ones to see Hootie and the Blowfish live in concert once more?

The Wallflowers at The Senate

The Wallflowers

Grab your leather jackets, and get ready to rock! American rock band The Wallflowers are hitting the road and bringing their epic sound to you in 2024! The line-up consists of Steve Mackey on bass, Stanton Adcock on lead guitar, Lynn Williams on drums, and founder Jakob Dylan on lead vocals and guitar. Expect to hear fan favorites, including the Billboard 100 charter, Sleepwalker.

Koe Wetzel at Colonial Life Arena

Koe Wetzel

Trading a stetson for a trucker cap, Texas wild child Koe Wetzel does country music his way. A resident of the Lone Star State, he fuses the raw, hillybilly East Texas country music of his upbringing with a punk rock spirit and bro-country hooks, all wrapped up in a fun-loving persona that makes for a party atmosphere at his live shows. Now, he's taking his country smash-hits all across America with the Damn Near Normal Tour.

Brett Dennen at New Brookland Tavern

Brett Dennen

Californian folk sophomore Brett Dennen is back on the road! A self-taught singer and musician from an early age, Dennen's creative upbringing at home allowed him to compose his own music during his teens, and then to inspire others at summer camp. His 2004 self-titled debut album was well-received when a burned copy found its way to Apple executive Denzyl Feigelson, leading to a record contract with Dualtone Records.

Anthony Hamilton at Township Auditorium

Anthony Hamilton

With a voice as smooth as the glowing embers of a dying fire and a glass of pinot noir, Anthony Hamilton is the king of modern Soul and RnB. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter burst onto the scene in the early 2000's, after cutting his teeth as a backing singer for the likes of D'Angelo and 2Pac.

Beartooth at The Senate

Beartooth

Hardcore punk band Beartooth are breaking in the new year hard and fast with a huge North American tour. Joining them are fellow rockers The Plot In You, Invent Animate and Sleep Theory. Following the release of their much anticipated new album, The Surface, the band will kick off the tour in their home state of Ohio, and wrap it up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Get your tickets now and start the new year with Beartooth!

The Mountain Goats at The Senate

The Mountain Goats

Despite his pluralized moniker, John Darnielle remains the sole driving force of Californian indie pop-rock outfit The Mountain Goats. With an ever-evolving roster of live and recording musicians surrounding him, Darnielle revels in his goth-tinged melancholy, fusing a winning combination of wry insight and black humor in his lyrics (which earned him the accolade of 'America's best non-hip-hop artist' by the New Yorker) with lingering melodic hooks and satisfying songcraft. This year, Darnielle brings his spell-binding songwriting to venues across America once more.

Juvenile at The Senate

Juvenile

American rapper Juvenile and the 400 Degreez Band are heading out on a huge nationwide tour this summer to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the gold-certified track, Back That Azz Up. You might have caught the orchestral rendition that he performed during his NPR Music's Tiny Desk Concert, and his live show promises to be even better. Make sure you catch him on this special tour!

Polaris at The Senate

Polaris

The renowned metalcore band Polaris is embarking on an epic nationwide tour once again! The award-winning Australian rockers, sometimes referred to as Australia's best-kept secret, will be performing over 20 shows, making stops in Las Vegas, Austin, Boston, and many more. Make sure you get your tickets to see one of the most dedicated bands on the scene!
