The Queen of Soul herself is headed to Philadelphia this December for a show that you absolutely do not want to miss! Aretha Franklin will make her Kimmel Center debut on December 29th. Ms. Franklin will be singing some of her greatest hits as well as songs off of her latest release, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics. Grab your tickets now, because the good seats will not be around for long.

Aretha Franklin made waves recently when she went on The Late Show with David Letterman in support of her new album. She performed a fabulous rendition of Adele’s hit “Rolling in the Deep,” and proved without a shadow of a doubt that the Queen has still got it! Check out her performance here. And then immediately go and grab your tickets for her upcoming appearance at The Kimmel Center.

Aretha Franklin remains the most charted female in R&B history. The legend has won 18 Grammy Awards and sold over 75 million records, and thankfully shows no sign of slowing down. Her newest album, which was released in September is her 38th studio album to date. The album was instantly met with success, debuting at number 3 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and number 1 on the Billboard R&B Album Chart. Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics is Franklin’s 16th top 20 album. Her last was Who’s Zoomin’ Who? in 1989. With so many hits under her belt, it will be exciting to see what the Queen of Soul chooses to perform when she takes the stage at The Kimmel Center this December.

Sam Smith @ Liacouras Center 1/13

October 21st, 2014

In just a short time, Sam Smith has become the biggest name in pop music. You can’t turn on the radio these days without hearing one of his songs, or featured appearances. And with good reason. Sam Smith is taking the US by storm with his lovesick lyrics and soulful melodies. And early next year, he’ll head out on a 16-stop tour of North America, hitting spots in the US and Canada. The tour will kick off in Atlanta on January 9th and finish up in Vancouver on February 4th.

And lucky us, we’ll get to see Sam Smith when he hits the stage in Philly on January 13th. Sam Smith is performing at the Liacouras Center, over on Temple’s Campus, which is quickly becoming the go-to spot for hot shows this season. Tickets go on sale this Friday, but do not sleep on this one because it is guaranteed to be a very popular event. If that’s not enough to satisfy your Sam Smith cravings, you can also catch him when he performs at this year’s Jingle Ball, hosted by Q102. That event also features Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea, OneRepublic, and others.

Sam Smith’s upcoming tour is named after his mega-successful debut album, In the Lonely Hour. The album debuted at number 1 in the UK and number 2 on the Billboard 200 here in the US. We were lucky enough to hear a bit from the UK crooner back in March at SXSW. He was fabulous then, and his stage presence has presumably only gotten more captivating over these past few months of mainstream performances. His upcoming show at the Liacouras Center is a huge jump in terms of scope for the singer, considering his last performance here in Philly was at the much smaller Boot & Saddle. Not surprisingly, that show sold out. So we’re interested to see how sales do for his upcoming stadium performance. Grab your tickets this Friday and do not miss your chance to see the man who many are dubbing “The Male Adele.”

Tuesday, January 15

Show @ 7:00 PM (Doors @ 6:00 PM)

Tickets $55 – $65

The Many Faces of Paloma

Considering the UK’s affinity for soul and retro singers like Adele, Amy Winehouse and Duffy, it should be no surprise that Paloma Faith is the next.  Her newest album, A Perfect Contradiction, is a great mix of retro Motown, pop beats and a powerhouse voice.  With the help from collaborators that include producer/singer Pharrell and Raphael Saadiq, Faith creates a reincarnation of the 50s and 60s soul era.

It is no secret that the British music scene has always made its way across the Atlantic to invade America. Fresh on the map this year is the ever soulful singer-songwriter Sam Smith. His sweet, humble demeanor emits the most unassuming presence, but his voice is undoubtedly a diamond in the rough. After piercing the MTV VMA’s pre-party at the Avalon on Friday night and the VMA ceremony on Sunday with powerful performances, he made one final stop at the Red Bull Sound Space in Culver City for a mini concert and a fan Q&A before jet setting out of LA.
