FLOETRY: MARSHA AMBROSIUS & NATALIE STEWART
WHEN: July 25, 8 p.m.
WHERE: Grand Theater
A great song takes you on an emotional journey. It’s an exploration into and embracing of longing, passion, remorse, romance, friendship, love, pain, happiness and everything that falls in between. As the creative mastermind of Floetry, Natalie “The Floacist” Stewart has managed to take her blossoming artistic venture from South London to Philadelphia and ultimately, to the World. So, after five years of non-stop, sold out, touring and selling well over 1 million copies of three released albums and a live album DVD, Floetry has moved on to solo ventures. Multi-Grammy nominated musician Marsha Ambrosius knows a little something about writing great songs. Whether it’s as one half of Floetry, on her chart-topping solo debut Late Nights & Early Mornings or her career as an acclaimed songwriter /producer, her observations on love and life paired with her soulful and honest vocals flip the personal into a universal truth. Tickets for this event are $38.

DEEP PURPLE
WHEN: July 30, 8 p.m.
WHERE: Grand Theater
Deep Purple has released 4 studio albums since 1996, but that total is augmented by an abundance of solo work and special projects from all 5 band members. Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Steve Morse and Don Airey, Mark VIII of the band, continue to travel the scope of hard rock — the textures and nuances of recent works are anything but thudding retreads. If you set a random play setting for the band’s entire catalogue, the result is one of the finest musical outputs to grace rock music. Their holy grail of In Rock (1970) Machine Head (1972) and Made In Japan released in 1973 catapulted Deep Purple to the top in concert grosses and album sales around the world. Deep Purple has been more than in synch with fans’ tastes to remain a powerful drawing force since their formation in 1968. These days, happy faces reside from both the stage and audience. When the music is this good, smiles reign supreme. Tickets for this event range $35 - $75.

CULTURE CLUB
