George Lucas is back to squeeze a little more cash out of the Star Wars franchise. This time, it's not a new line of toys, a cartoon, or even another prequel. Nope, this time the multimedia event is Star Wars: In Concert. The two-hour performance uses a full symphony orchestra, choir, and of course clips from the films to make geeks wet dreams come true. And just to make it a little cooler, Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) provides the narration. STIC is at BankAtlantic Center October 30. Tickets are available now through Ticketmaster.
Electro-pop is hot hot hot right now and Owl City is the latest band to start getting heat on the scene. They've recently released their second album Ocean Eyes and are taking it on the road on a worldwide tour. They're heading over to China and Japan, then it's back to America where they'll be hitting Culture Room on February 4. Tickets are available now via Ticketmaster.
Finally, Chris Brown has been in the news for everything but his music lately. On November 29, he'll be showing up to Revolution Live hoping that his fans can forget about the awful things reported about him earlier this year. Are R&B fans forgiving enough to drop $30 to hear him sing about what an awesome, caring, and loving guy he is or how he can "Transform ya?" Tickets go on sale Saturday via Ticketmaster.
