Mary J. Blige Comes To Foxwoods

Mary J. Blige's "My Life" came out in 1994. Part of her appeal, when she came on the scene, was the sense that she was mature; that, even then, when she was in her 20s, she'd already weathered some of life's storms and had the fortitude and self-possession to take whatever anybody threw her way....

    Blake Shelton At The XL Center

    It's been a big last couple of years for country singer and entertainer Blake Shelton. He and ex-wife Miranda Lambert announced their divorce about a year ago.

      Tom Jones has had a huge career, but he's never quite gotten the respect he deserves. Jones is a singer with a deep respect for soul, and a gift for interpreting a song. He's never been a songwriter. He's generally understood that he's the focus of winking attention for his campy showmanship —...

        Blitzen Trapper At The Outer Space

        If there's a sound of the Pacific Northwest in the 21st century, Blitzen Trapper might be the act that captures it. The Portland, Ore., band's music is simultaneously nostalgic and futuristic, bringing to mind gold prospectors, a "McCabe and Mrs. Miller" vibe, heartland rock and space cowboys with...
