Rufus Du Sol in Concert
@Revention Music Center
Australian alternative dance group from Sydney, Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt make their way to Live Nation's Reventon Center in Bayou Place this weekend. They had to change their name from RÜFÜS to Rüfüs Du Sol when coming to America because RÜFÜS was already taken.
Last fall they recorded a live album and accompanying film in a secluded area of Joshua Tree as the sun went down over rock formations and light poles illuminated the desert night sky around them. "Live From Joshua Tree" will be released last Friday and the accompanying video can be seen on YouTube.

Davido in Concert
@Revention Music Center
Not many music artists can claim iconic status within just 5 years of starting out. But the Atlanta-born Nigerian singer/songwriter, producer and label owner - who returned home to Lagos, foresaking previously unsuccessful college pursuits in Alabama to chase his music dreams - has earned the right. Certainly across the African continent his die-hard millions of fans no doubt recall the cult Hip-hop and Afropop crossover hit 'Way Back When' which planted him firmly on their radar. "It was people like (Nigerian music veterans) P-Square and D'Banj who made me believe that all this was possible," he recalls.

Cirque du Soleil - Alegria
@Sam Houston Race Park
Cirque de Soleil - Alegria show has been reimagined for a new generation to fall in love with. A wind of change hangs in the air, as the aristocratic ideals of the old guard are challenged by the revolutionary ideals of a youth in revolt. It all starts this weekend February 29, 2020) at Sam Houston Race Park under their Grand Chapiteau throughout the month of March.
Featuring a soundtrack that incorporates an eclectic mix of sonic palates and stunning feats of circus artistry, Alegría earns its reputation as an all-time classic Cirque du Soleil show. Stunning costume design and vibrant sets allow you to fully immerse yourself in this kingdom on the verge of revolutionary change.
Alegría takes its name from the Spanish word for "joy." Cirque du Soleil's literature describes the show as "an operatic introspection of the struggle for power and the invigorating energy of youth." Dominique Lemieux's costumes evince a baroque aesthetic of decadence and ornamentation, while René Dupéré's musical score features a unique blend of French, Spanish, African, and Mediterranean influences. The stage and props are characterized by gothic arches and harsh angular designs.
