Ladies and Gentlemen, if you're going to head out to a single concert in 2010, this is it. Bon Jovi is bringing his perfect hair, golden pipes, and a plethora of iconic riffs to BankAtlantic Center on April 18. Bon Jovi released The Circle, his 10th studio album, last week to surprisingly good reviews. But if you're going to the show, you're going to want to hear at least some of the old stuff sprinkled between the new power ballads. Good news: your wish should be granted. Tickets start at $29.50 and are on sale now.
The Culture Room is welcoming a slightly less well known singer songwriter at the end of the year. On December 30, Edwin McCain will bring his alterna-rocking to the Fort Lauderdale club. If the name sounds familiar, you're probably a fan of Hootie and the Blowfish, who would often take Edwin along on their tours as an opening act. Tickets go on sale this Friday for the show. Hit the jump to preview the goods.
