Conan O'Brien will bring his aptly titled "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television" tour to Mohegan Sun Arena on June 6th. The show will include longtime sidekick Andy Richter and the former Tonight Show band. It promises to be a night of music, comedy, hugging, and the occasional awkward silence. $65 & $45. 9pm.
Iconic recording artists Carole King and James Taylor unveiled North American dates for the highly-anticipated "Troubadour Reunion" tour. This once-in-a-lifetime event marks a rare concert experience bringing two of the most beloved singer/songwriters on tour together -- intimate and in the round -- for the first time in four decades. The idea for the tour was conceived after a series of six performances Taylor and King gave at the Troubadour in Los Angeles in 2007 to celebrate the famed venue's 50th anniversary. The shows sold out immediately and garnered rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Joining King and Taylor on tour will be their original bandmates guitarist Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar, drummer Russ Kunkel and bassist Lee Sklar, famous in their own right as "The Section." Also joining "The Section" will be Rudy Guess, Robbie Kondor, Arnold McCuller, Kate Markowitz and Andrea Zonn. King and Taylor's historic performance together at the Troubadour in November 1970 heralded King's transition to solo stage performer, after penning 22 Top 40 hits for artists ranging from Aretha Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman" to The Monkees' "Pleasant Valley Sunday." Meanwhile Taylor was supporting his self-titled Apple Records release featuring classics such as "Carolina In My Mind" and "Something In The Way She Moves." $95 & $75. 7:30pm.
Styx's most recent release is 2006's One With Everything, a live CD/DVD set showcasing the band's hit songs with accompaniment from the Contemporary Youth Orchestra of Cleveland. Along with classic hits, Foreigner will perform material from last year's Can't Slow Down, the band's first studio set with lead singer Kelly Hansen, who joined the group in 2005. Kansas also released a live album, There's Know Place Like Home, which hit shelves last October. $40. 7pm.
