Jonas Brothers in Concert
Guest Kelsea Ballerini
Saturday 10/23/2021 7:00 PM
Gates Open 6:00 PM
he Brothers promters scheduled over twenthy tour stops throug the end of next week ending on October 27, 2021. This weekend the brothers will perfrom in The Woodlands on their “Remember This” tour at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.
Rebecca Mills of Culturess.com about two weeks ago reviewed the brothers in concert, "As someone who is a huge Jonas Brothers fan, I can undeniably say that this tour wasn’t nearly as exciting as the “Happiness Begins” tour. Maybe it’s because of the lack of audience involvement but it seemed a bit more toned-down. While the band did a great job performing, it didn’t seem like things were nearly as exciting. No doubt having a new album out would have changed things a lot but it wasn’t meant to be."
"Ultimately if you’re a Jonas Brothers fan and you’re dying to see them, I’d say go for it. If you’re a fan and saw the “Happiness Begins” tour, then I’d say save your money. Personally, I really enjoyed the concert and thought it was fun but it lacked the pizzazz of the “Happiness Begins” tour so it wasn’t nearly as fun. Nevertheless, the Jonas Brothers did awesome so it’s up to you if you’re willing to spend the money and don’t mind being around lots of people."
Olivia Sabalaskey of the student run, Villanovan.com reviewed the brothers effortgs last September. "The Jonas Brothers have had an undoubtedly successful career together. Their quick rise to fame began with Disney Channel, starring in fan favorite Disney Channel Original Movie “Camp Rock” with Demi Lovato, along with their own series aptly titled “Jonas.” After a breakup in 2013, the trio reunited six years later for their beloved fans with a hit comeback album, “Happiness Begins.”
"Junior Bernadette Goratowski (student) was thrilled that they sang her all-time favorite songs at the concert, allowing her to reminisce about her childhood days.
“It was so fun to finally get to hear music that I loved growing up in person,” Goratowski said. “I never went to a Jonas Brothers concert growing up, so it was a perfect way to live out my nostalgia and listen to their new songs.”
The Jonas Brothers gained popularity in 2005, from their appearances on the Disney Channel television network (Now Freeform network). The brothers; Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas, raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey, moved to Little Falls, New Jersey, where they wrote their first record that made its Hollywood Records release.
Kelsea Ballerini has consistently made history. With the release of her debut album she became the only female country artist to hit number one with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album, attaining her fifth number one in four years with the 2x platinum “Miss Me More.” Her critically acclaimed sophomore album Unapologetically marked her second Top 5 debut on the Billboard Top 200.
In 2019, Ballerini received a CMA nomination for “Female Vocalist
of the Year”
Ballerini has garnered two GRAMMY® Award nominations, won two ACM Awards, and took home the iHeartRadio Music Awards honor for “Best New Artist.” The Black River recording artist’s debut and sophomore albums have both been certified gold, and she has a career total of ten gold and platinum singles certifications and total streams exceeding 2 billion to date. Additionally, she was welcomed as the Grand Ole Opry's youngest current member. In 2019, Ballerini received a CMA nomination for “Female Vocalist of the Year” and an American Music Award nomination for “Female Artist Country.” Kelsea received a 2020 ACM nomination for “Female Artist of the Year.” Additionally, Kelsea leads the 2020 CMT Award nominations with nods for “Video of the Year,” “Female Video of the Year,” and “CMT Performance of the Year.”

Since then, he has released several projects and singles like “Napkins,” which was featured in the Warner Bros. film, The Sun Is Also a Star. The single has received more than eighteen million streams, while his EP, Breathe., dropped in summer 2019.

Doors Open 6:00 PM
ACM, CMA and CMT Award-winning artist Luke Combs makes his way to Toyota Center this weekend with his extended, "What You See Is What You Get Tour".
In May 2020, Combs released the single "Six Feet Apart". The single quickly became popular to listeners as it illustrated the challenges of life during the COVID-19 pandemic. In June 2020, Combs made his next single "Lovin' on You", which was released on both his second album and the EP The Prequel, which predated the album.
Combs announced a deluxe version of "What You See Is What You Get", titled "What You See Ain't Always What You Get", with five new songs; it was released back in October of 2020. The track "Forever After All" set streaming records in country music on Apple Music and Spotify.
In the peak of his career, Luke Combs works had hit an all-time high, therefore, making him recognized among the best country music artists. Among the accolades, he earned during his career included the country music associations award as a new artist of the year and the iHeartRadio Music Awards as a new country artist of the year in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
Additionally, Luke Combs and his music were nominated in numerous awards including the Grammy awards. To date, Luke Combs still ranks as a great country song artist with his works ranking among the top on music charts.
Luke Combs guest, Ashley McBryde was forced to postpone a few concerts following a horseback riding accident in Montana, while on her tour. The accident resulted in a concussion and the need for stitches on her scalp, she was "not able to walk without assistance." reported Billboard.com a few weeks ago.
"A few of us went to ride horses on a ranch in Montana before the scheduled show," McBryde wrote in a note posted to her Facebook page and her Instagram Stories. "I'm not an inexperienced horseman by any means, I grew up riding a fair amount. The horses we were on are ridden a lot and cared for each day. Very good horses."
This weekend McBryde will be making a guest appearance with Luke Combs on his "What You See Is What You Get Tour".
It takes some folks 10 years to make a name for themselves in Music City, but in the three short years that Drew Parker has lived in Nashville, TN, he has been able to accomplish things he never dreamed were possible. Parker will also perform at Luke Combs concert.
Parker made the move to Nashville, Tennessee in 2015 and signed a publishing deal with RiverHouse/WarnerChappell in 2017. He is a co-writer on Luke Combs’ debut platinum record “This Ones For You”, Jake Owen’s single “Homemade” and Luke Combs’ “1,2 Many”.

It's been a little over a year since the 2020 Millennium Tour was rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The tour originally began in 2019 and was planned to run through 2020 before it was postponed. But now, with the nation opening up, the tour is contiunig making its way to Sugarland's Smart Financial Center.
The tour has had great success in the venues its perfromed in with its star performer's
Omarion and Bow Wow. But last weekend HipHopdx.com reported Bow Wow had a break down.
"Following a stop at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina, the former child star went on an extended Twitter tirade about what he’s allegedly experiencing on the road in the wee hours of Saturday (October 16, 2021).
“Too much bitching and complaining on this tour! Im bussn cats asses EVERY NIGHT! Every night they try and complain and take something away from me! I give 1000% and yall know it! ATL I HOPE YALL SHOW TOGETHER! IMA BUSS YALL ASS FOR 45 mins straight! TRY ME!”
Bow Wow then threatened to quit the tour altogether, adding, “This might be my last show! I’ve had enough!”
The 34-year-old rapper/actor also claimed he was given minimal stage time and regretted agreeing to the run in the first place.
“Heres the truth!” he continued. “I do 15 min EVERY NIGHT! I cant even do my full songs. AND I STILL BE BUSTING FOLKS ASS! think the fans dont complain about my set being 15 mins? Only way i show up tonight if i do my full set! Straight up!
“I knew I shoulda waited this out. Shoulda rested up and did 2022 with my bro @chrisbrown.”
The tour continues this weekend at Smart Financial Center with or without the rapper.

The Beach Boys mark more than a half century of making music and this weekend the 602's icons will be on Galveston island at The Grand Opera House.
The Beach Boys have become synonymous with the California lifestyle and have become an American icon to fans around the world.
Since the band’s co-founder, lead-singer and chief lyricist Mike Love penned the lyrics to The Beach Boys’ first hit, “Surfin’” (1961), dozens of the bands chart toppers have become eternal anthems of American youth: “Surfin’ USA,” “Surfer Girl,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “Kokomo.”
The Beach Boys have sold over 100 million records worldwide and have received more than 33 RIAA Platinum and Gold record awards. The Rock And Roll Hall of Famers where also honored at the 2001 Grammy Awards with the Lifetime Achievement Award.
With more than five decades of touring under their belts, The Beach Boys have performed more concerts than any major rock band in history.

The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love, who, along with longtime member Bruce Johnston, musical director Scott Totten, Brian Eichenberger, Christian Love, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Keith Hubacher and Randy Leago continue the legacy of the iconic band. This concert will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.

Jordan Terrell Carter, known as Playboi Carti makes his way to the Bayou City with his "Narcissist Tour" in NRG Arena.
Carter has been described as a "mumble rapper" with his music as "playful, hard-hitting, and very melodic." Complex.com called his style of rapping "spare and repetitive, more concerned with flow and catchy phrases." Briana Younger at Pitchfork.com said that "Carti’s music is less about lyricism and more about atmosphere", going on to say that "whatever Carti lacks in substance he makes up in sheer audacity."
Carter is known for his "baby voice" technique, characterized by his voice hitting high pitches with unclear pronunciations and frantic cadences. He has used this technique on popular songs such as "Almeda" with Solange, "Earfquake" with Tyler, the Creator, and "Pissy Pamper" with Young Nudy and Pi'erre Bourne.
The New York Times said Carti's rapping made it appear as if he was "more at ease with the performance of the role than with the actual act of rapping."
He uses Satanic imagery. His style is influenced by vampire movies. New Orleans rapper, Lil Wayne inspired him to freestyle all of his raps.

An Evening with
C.S. Lewis & J.R.R. Tolkien
@The Hobby Center
Saturday 10/23/2021 4:00 PM & 8:00 PM
Sunday 10/24/2021 2:00 PM
Lewis & Tolkien is a play set in Oxford’s Eagle & Child pub. Aging and legendary authors, J.R.R. Tolkien and his great friend C.S. Lewis, meet for what turns out to be the very last time.
They were lions of 20th century British fantasy, giants of a literary genre that reached millions of readers, young and old alike, with mystifying adventures to entertain and deep truths to move people’s hearts. C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia) and J.R.R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings) were also distinguished faculty members at Oxford University and participants in a literary group known as the Inklings. Their robust philosophical discourse served an uncommon friendship that was not without its differences. Life’s circumstances and, sometimes, unresolved disagreements forced an uncomfortable season of estrangement.
In Lewis & Tolkien we join “Jack” and “Tollers,” as they knew each other, at Oxford’s historic Eagle and Child pub for one last visit, tempered by thawing humor, confession and reconciliation.
Note:All patrons ages 2 and older will be required to show either proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or proof of vaccination, and photo identification. Patrons ages 18 and older must bring a photo ID that matches the name on the proof. Guests younger than age 18 without ID must be accompanied by an adult with proper identification.
