Incoming: The Black Lips, Danzig, Gene Loves Jezebel, Keith Urban, Al Jarreau


No song better defines Jarreau's long and multifaceted career than his 1983 hit "Trouble In Paradise." While not his most famous song, "Trouble In Paradise" best sums up how Jarreau's music has appeal across the Jazz, Pop and R&B charts. Oh, I almost forgot -- the man has won Grammys in four consecutive decades starting in the 1970s.

Joining the ever talented Jarreau with just announced shows of their own are Pat Benatar, Blues Traveler, Josh Groban and Yanni.
