"Everybody Knows It's Christmas Tour"
@House of Blues Houston
(From All Music.com-Stephen Thomas Erlewine) Chris Isaak fashioned himself as a throwback to the early days of rock & roll, devising a fusion between Elvis Presley's rockabilly croon and Roy Orbison's moody, melancholy balladeering. Unlike his roots rock peers of the 1980s, Isaak didn't care for the earthier elements of rock & roll. He offered a stylized, picturesque spin on the spare, echoey sound of pre-Beatles rock, creating an atmosphere that was equally sweet and sensuous. Certainly, "Wicked Game," the sultry single that became a career-defining hit in 1989, captured his seductive side, a trait that would re-surface on the subsequent "Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing," a darkly lit rockabilly tune from 1995 that was later included in Stanley Kubrick's 1999 film Eyes Wide Shut.

Those two songs crystallize the shadowy sexiness lurking within Isaak's music, but much of his body of work found him exploring the lighter side of the first wave of rock & roll with a knowing yet loving playfulness. This sense of understated showmanship helped Isaak ease into side careers as an actor and television host, plus it was central to the live shows that kept him on the road in between a steady stream of records that included such genre exercises as the 1950s covers album Beyond the Sun and the 2022 holiday set Everybody Knows It's Christmas, as well as collections of originals like First Comes the Night, a 2015 album partially produced by Dave Cobb.

Since then he toured ‘Love Isn’t the Answer’ and ‘The Future is NOW!’ which came to an end at the peak of its run due to covid shutting the world down. But now Nemr is back with another brand new hilarious show ‘DROPPING HOT’! Following what the world has been through, it’s a show you won’t want to miss!
