Wonderous Stories will celebrate the 40th anniversary of George Harrison's "Concert for Bangladesh" with an all-star big band performance of the album in its entirety.

In those years special guests have included members and former members of the Alan Parsons Project, Vanilla Fudge, The Hooters, Zebra, Tower of Power, Ted Nugent, Dire Straits, and much more. We have also had people who were behind the scenes at the original 1971 Bangladesh show and special guest promoter Sid Bernstein (Beatles at Shea). Plans are already in the works to make this one the most memorable concerts of them all with very special guests to be announced and added to the show as we get closer. We already have many of the performers confirmed from the bands mentioned above and are ready to add some notable national performers! Sit back and enjoy the massive Wall of Sound as we present the "Concert for Bangladesh" plus extra songs performed by our guests who made them famous! Moneys from this show will be donated to the cancer society in the memory of George Harrison, who died of cancer in 2002. Wonderous Stories has become the band that people say can play anything. They are no strangers to playing complete renditions of classic albums. The band consists of Kenny Forgione, Tommy Williams, Kevin McCann, Ricky Martinez, and Mark Bonder. They all sing and play multiple instruments. For three years in a row at B.B. King Blues Club they did a massive recreation of George Harrison's "Concert for Bangladesh." They have also done entire albums and album sides by The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, Paul McCartney, and more.

Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds - B.B. King Blues Club & Grill

Reverend Billy & The Stop Shopping Gospel Choir 'Occupy The Highline' - Highline Ballroom
November 27, 2011 -

A strange faith is brewing for these apocalyptic times. Post-fundamentalist and happy-crazy with a 35-voice choir and worshippers throughout the world, The Church of Earthalujah began in New York City in 2009. The church has cast the global warming devils from the cash machines of JP Morgan Chase and UBS - the Swiss bank that invests in the Koch brothers and climate change skepticism. These churchgoers believe that natural disasters are messages from a living thing and that we should be teaching each other to listen and pray. Earthalujah! Since sidewalk preaching in Times Square in the '90s, Reverend Billy Talen has spent the last decade toggling between community activism and theatrical spectacle. The 35-voice Earthalujah Gospel Choir has grown up around him as the climate crisis has brought a crescendo to the "stop shopping" theme. The shopping that matters most now is dirty coal, mountaintop removal, fracking, and tar sands. Now, after films and records and world tours, the hope is that power-shopping Americans will be pulled from a deep consumer hypnosis. The hush that has settled over the American landscape, as leader after leader cannot raise an adequate voice, is answered by the preaching of tornados and fires and floods...

"REFLECTIONS" sees an evolving line up of band members past and present playing the first three Cure albums live in their entirety - from the punchy, offbeat, starkly unadorned songs of Three Imaginary Boys (1979), through the increasingly shadowy and quixotic pieces of Seventeen Seconds (1980), to the singular melancholic grandeur of Faith (1981) - in a truly extraordinary concert experience.

Don Omar - Beacon Theatre
December 01, 2011 - New York

Don Omar became one of reggaeton's first international superstars, thanks to his early-2000s work with Luny Tunes but even more so thanks to "Reggaeton Latino," his 2005 anthem that became one of the style's first genuine crossover hits. Born William Omar Landrón on February 10, 1978, in Villa Palmeras, Puerto Rico, Omar involved himself in the church at a young age. He became a preacher, in fact, and it was in this role that he began honing his performance ability as well as his deep insight into the human soul. He eventually left the church (a matter later addressed in his song "Aunque Te Fuiste") and channeled his talents toward music. It wasn't that far of a stretch from his days in the church, and Omar quickly took to the burgeoning reggaeton movement then sweeping through Puerto Rico. His big break came courtesy of Héctor el Bambino (aka Héctor el Father) of the popular duo Héctor & Tito. Initially Omar produced and wrote songs for the duo, but it wasn't long before he was given the opportunity to collaborate with them vocally, as featured on the song "A la Reconquista." His solo career took off around this same time, with one of his first hits being "Desde Que Llego" in 2002. He made his album debut the following year on the VI Music label. His album debut, The Last Don (2003), was a landmark for the reggaeton movement, which was then just beginning to make inroads into the lucrative stateside market. The album featured extensive production work by Luny Tunes and Eliel, who would quickly become the style's go-to hitmakers, the former in particular, and it spawned a few hit records, including "Intocable" and "Dile." Beyond this album, Omar was scoring further hits with Luny Tunes on their mixtape CDs, most notably "Entre Tú y Yo" from Mas Flow and "Dale Don Dale" from La Trayectoria. His biggest hit came on the Chosen Few compilation, though. That hit, "Reggaeton Latino," was the perfect anthem -- an empowering rallying call of Latino pride, arriving just as reggaeton was spreading like wildfire throughout the coastal urban centers of the United States in summer 2005. The song was so popular in the U.S. that a remix was quickly issued to further the crossover possibilities. This bilingual remix featured well-known Latino rappers N.O.R.E. and Fat Joe, and it was only the second reggaeton song to get MTV airplay in the States, not to mention the crossover radio airplay it received. The success of "Reggaeton Latino" affirmed Omar's status alongside Daddy Yankee and Tego Calder?n as one of reggaeton's true leaders, and of them, he was clearly the revolutionary: a man of passion with a voice that sought to uplift his people to brighter days, not unlike what he had sought to do in his previous profession as a preacher, except now with an emphasis on the secular rather than nonsecular, and with a much, much larger following. Following a live album (The Last Don: Live, 2004) and best-of/remix compilation (Da Hit Man Presents Reggaeton Latino, 2005), Omar released his second proper album, King of Kings (2006). It easily debuted atop the Latin album chart; more notably, though, it reached number eight on the Billboard 200 overall album chart, the first reggaeton album ever to break the Top Ten. Then in the wake of the album's big debut and the popularity of lead single "Angelito," which was a number one hit, Omar released a couple mixtapes -- Los Bandoleros Reloaded (2006) and El Pentagono (2007) -- which featured further hits such as "No Se de Ella (My Space)."

Tori Amos - Beacon Theatre
Through December 03, 2011 - New York

Performing in bars and clubs since the age of 13, Tori Amos has since evolved into one of the most respected and inspiring live performers. Touring relentlessly since 1991, the stage has always been one of the fundamentals of her career. Rolling Stone voted her one of the best live performers of all time. Tori will be releasing a new album, Night of Hunters, her first record since 2009's Abnormally Attracted to Sin, this September. The album will have a markedly classical thrust to it. "I have used the structure of a classical song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story," Amos says. "The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter." All this sounds very much like a rock opera, so we can only hope for some good interstitial spoken-word acting scenes.
