25, at Louisiana’s New Orleans Arena. Now in its eight year, Aldean’s 2013 “Concert for the Cure” event will take place at a venue where his Night Train Tour was a sell-put, according to an Oct. 5 missive from the entertainer’s PR camp. Throughout the year, Aldean –who is nominated for the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year trophy for the third time — sets aside 50 cents of each concert ticket sold, then selects one show market in October and donates all proceeds to its local Susan G. Komen affiliate. “Last year. the Komen New Orleans team needed a little over $1 million to meet all their needs, but they were only able to fund about half of that,” Aldean said. “If we raise the half a million that we did last year in Dallas, we’ll be able to help these women meet their goal and provide the services the town needs.” Now celebrating a second week atop the Billboard chart with his 12th No. 1 single, “Night Train,” Aldean landed three nods in this year’s CMA Awards, which will be held Nov. 6, including Male Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “The Only Way I Know” featuring Luke Bryan and Eric Church. For now, though, the Georgia-born performer’s mind is not on trophy wins, but on helping others via this month’s “Concert for the Cure.” “I can’t wait to see an arena full of pink in support of such a great cause!” he exclaimed.

Concert review: ‘Wildhorn & Friends’ warmly entertains BYU audience
More Coverage Concert preview: Perfectly Frank: Pop goes Broadway with ‘Wildhorn & Friends’ at BYU Bravo! series Frank Wildhorn & Friends, Bravo! Performing Arts Series, BYU Harris Fine Arts Center deJong Concert Hall, Oct. 3 PROVO As part of the Bravo! Performing Arts Series, a BYU audience had the rare treat of hearing three popular Broadway singers perform the works of composer Frank Wildhorn with Wildhorn himself at the piano as their accompanist. Wildhorn calls the concerts Wildhorn & Friends as a reference to the onstage performers, but he made concertgoers feel as if they were his friends gathering around his piano. The concert was in the large deJong Concert Hall, but through his warm introductions of his compositions, we felt as if we could be in a much more intimate setting. Darren Ritchie, who has originated Wildhorn roles on Broadway (as Jonathan Harker in Dracula and White Knight/Jack in Wonderland), sang two songs from The Civil War. Ritchie is an expressive singer, and his renditions of Sarah and Ill Never Pass This Way Again were moving reminders of the many lives lost during the painful era in our countrys history. The songs were made even more poignant when Wildhorn explained that lyrics from the 1998 song cycle were adapted from letters written on battlefields by dying soldiers to family and sweethearts. Ritchies songs werent all somber: He was also tapped to sing the playful The World Will Remember Us from Bonnie & Clyde and a stirring rendition of Into the Fire from The Scarlet Pimpernel, with 16 BYU voice students as backup singers. Gold, written for the opening ceremonies of Salt Lake Citys 2002 Olympic Winter Games, was superbly performed by Jackie Burns, who launched the first national tour of Wicked in the plum lead role of Elphaba. She was genuinely mischievous in The Mad Hatter from Wonderland: A New Alice, A New Musical. Burns also made How Bout a Dance? from Bonnie & Clyde into a sultry torch song. Wildhorns megahit Jekyll & Hyde, which enjoyed a three-year run on Broadway and frequent international stagings, was represented by a pair of songs. This Is the Moment was a song that the original producers wanted to cut from the musical, but Wildhorn now refers to it as This Is My Mortgage, because of its long life leading to satisfying royalties.
