"Back To Abnormal
Saturday 11/6/2021 7:30 PM
Door Open 6:30 PM
Tickets to Trevor Noah
Comedy Central's Trevor Noah makes his way to the Toyota Center this weekend in his "Back To Abnormal World Tour".
In 2019, Noah launched a new podcast series “The Trevor Noah Podcast.” In his podcast, Noah challenges himself – and listeners – to explore unfamiliar angles, embrace differing viewpoints, and celebrate the contradictions that make the modern world both bewildering and exciting. In 2020, “The Trevor Noah Podcast” won the Webby Award and Webby People’s Voice Award for News & Politics (Podcasts).
Noah is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” and its young readers adaptation “It’s Trevor Noah: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood,” which also debuted as a New York Times bestseller. The book received the Thurber Prize for American Humor and two NAACP Image Awards, one for Outstanding Literary Work by a debut author and another for Outstanding Literary Work in the Biography/Auto-Biography category.
“Born A Crime” is a collection of personal stories about growing up in South Africa during the last gasps of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that came with its demise. Already known for his incisive social and political commentary, here Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers an intimate look at the world that shaped him. These are true stories, sometimes dark, occasionally bizarre, frequently tender, and always hilarious. Whether subsisting on caterpillars during months of extreme poverty or making comically hapless attempts at teenage romance, from the time he was thrown in jail to the time he was thrown from a speeding car driven by murderous gangsters, the experiences covered in this book will shock and amaze, even as they leave you rolling on the floor with laughter.
with Jamey Johnson
Saturday 11/6/2021 7:00 PM
Gates Open 5:30 PM
Tickets to Chris Stapleton
Chris Stapleton spent years in Nashville as a sought-after songwriter, furnishing songs for numerous artists. Easy to spot due to his signature long hair and prodigious beard, he became a major star in the autumn of 2015 when his debut solo album, "Traveller", practically swept the CMAs. This weekend Chris Stapleton plays The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.
"Traveller" subsequently went platinum and Stapleton followed it up by drawing on his own vast repertoire of songs. In 2017 he released "From a Room: Volume 1", which won the CMA award for Album of the Year. That same year he released "From a Room: Volume 2.
After meeting some local songwriters in his hometown, Stapleton discovered that songwriting was a viable profession. In a 2016 interview with CBS News, he said: "I always thought that George Strait was singing a song, he made it up, and that was the end of it. But the instant I found out that that could be a job, I thought, 'That's the job for me.'"
Singer/songwriter Jamey Johnson is just as comfortable mopping up the tears on the barroom floor with an old Hank Williams-style ballad as he is tearing the roof off with a honky tonk juggernaut.
The Alabama native and former Marine rose to the top of the Nashville food chain through blood, sweat, and tears. Being raised in a devout and deeply musical family helped the new traditionalist find his voice, but it wasn't until he moved to Music City that the world began to take notice. After laying low for nearly a year, he began appearing at songwriter nights, where he met other writers. As his peers began securing publishing deals, they would ask Johnson to sing on their demos.
This past July, Yola released her latest album titled "Stand for Myself." Earlier this month Yola, played a sold out Madison Square Garden when she opened for Chris Stapleton.

Playing both sax and bass, he became the consummate session and touring musician in the 80s, working with everyone from Anita Baker, Ray Parker, Jr., Atlantic Starr, The Temptations and Maurice White to Les McCann, Teena Marie, the Winans and Whitney Houston.

& The Creole Cowboys
It's a family trade and there are few families more closely associated with zydeco than the Broussards. Jeffery Broussard was eight years old when he debuted on drums in his father's band, Delton Broussard and the Lawtell Playboys. Jeffery Broussard would eventually become a torchbearer for zydeco, influencing young musicians with the traditional Creole music he learned decades ago.
At the Forefront of Nouveau Zydeco Jeffery Broussard and Robbie Robinson founded Zydeco Force in the late 1980s, a band that became an icon on the zydeco scene at the forefront of the nouveau zydeco movement. The band provided a template for a new generation of artists. But Broussard has come full circle in his career. He grew up in the traditional zydeco, brought in a new sound in the 1980s and has now returned to his roots.
Jeffery Broussard and The Creole Cowboys deliver the creole zydeco classics. The Creole Cowboys create incredible music and outstanding performances, cultivating and inspiring new generations of creole zydeco fans.
