From a media release:

Hugh Jackman in Concert
Princess Wales Theatre, Toronto
July 5 - 17
 
TICKETS ON SALE MAY 28

David Mirvish proudly presents Hugh Jackman In Concert for a two week limited engagement at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto.

The Canadian premiere of Hugh Jackman in Concert follows a sold-out, premiere engagement in San Francisco, where David Wiegand in the Chronicle wrote “Jackman is a dazzling singer and dancer.  It’s not that they don’t make ‘em like Hugh Jackman anymore – they never did.”

Backed by an 18-piece orchestra, Tony Award-winner Hugh Jackman performs a personal selection of his favorite musical numbers that reflect on the stage and film star’s remarkable life and career, from The Boy from Oz to Hollywood.

“I have always loved performing live on stage,” said Hugh Jackman of today’s announcement.  “Toronto was where I shot my first American film, X-Men, and has great memories for me for lots of reasons. I can’t wait to go back and spend some time there again.”

Hugh Jackman has uniquely balanced a movie and theatre career that has made him a superstar on Broadway as well as at multiplexes around the world making  his first major U.S. film appearance as Wolverine in the first installment of the X-Men franchise, a role he reprised in the enormously successful X2 and 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. Most recently, he reprised his role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, one of the most successful “prequels” of all time.

On stage, Hugh Jackman won critical kudos and awards for the Australian productions of Sunset Boulevard and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.  In London he caused a sensation in Trevor Nunn’s staging of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! at the National Theatre.  This was followed by a legendary Broadway debut portraying the 1970s singer-songwriter Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz, for which he received the 2004 Tony Award for Best Actor in a musical as well as Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World awards.

In the fall of 2009, Jackman made a return to Broadway in a sold-out engagement of Keith Huff’s A Steady Rain co-starring Daniel Craig.

Up next he can be seen in DreamWorks’ “Real Steel” out this October.

  2. I couldn't find any mention of where the stage show will go after Toronto - there are rumours about Broadway, but he's also supposed to star in a Broadway version of Houdini in fall 2012, and in Les Miz as a film....

Blues Single | Bushwick Blooze Band: Waiting (Independent / 20 October 2020)

Blues Single Bushwick Blooze Band: Waiting (Independent / 20 October 2020) Stream It From Your Fave Service Waiting is the latest in a string of singles released by Bushwick Blooze Band. The Brooklyn-based blues trio have been performing and recording the blues around the NYC area since 2018. Their first album "Cryin' for the L Train" was released in January 2019, and included covers of famous songs composed by their greatest influencers such as Little Richard, The Allman Brothers Band, Freddie King, and Eddie Vinson.  Bushwick Blooze Band is finishing up the production of their second album "Yes Dear" and unlike the previous cover record, this new album will be their first original contribution to the genres they love. Waiting is an upbeat blues track with a party kind of veneer over solid musicianship. What begins with a classic blues feel transforms into an extended psychadelic flavoured trip. Inventive guitar licks almost make you forget about the virtuosity

Experimental Solo Guitar | Dan Pitt: Monochrome (Independent / September 4 2020)

Experimental Solo Guitar Dan Pitt: Monochrome (Independent / September 4 2020) Buy it on Bandcamp Toronto guitarist and composer Dan Pitt explores new ground in Monochrome, a recent release. The compositions for solo guitar each take a different approach. Pitt's musical imagination is inventive. Ghosts is contemplative, criss-crossing the line between jazz and classical music, and in and out of tonality. It has an interestingly eerie effect. The piece contrasts with Attraction and its buzzy, erratic energy that bursts into spurts of lightening quick notes. He returns to a more conventional contemporary jazz idiom in The Sorrow - but one that ends with an intriguing twist on the form. Long Lake is a classic acoustic guitar track, folky and melodic. Ditto is a standout, a distinctly contemporary exploration of contrapuntal melodies that at times sounds like a murmur of voices. Which Way Is Up is another highlight of the release with its elegant approach to minimalism. Electronic effe

From a media release: New Release from Little Known Government of TriBeCaStan : Capital New Deli Found to Have Irregular Time-Space Continuum EverGreene Music - February 7, 2012 TriBeCaStan: News Alert. This morning Aljazzeera reported that the questionable nation of TriBeCaStan ( www.tribecastan.tv ) has made scientific breakthroughs in time travel. The unrecognized republic of nomads has broken the code of the time/space continuum. And by broken we mean: it no longer works. Applying sonic techniques once only known to a small group of punk rock shamans, the nation's most prestigious scientific entity, the TriBeCaStani FolkLorkEstra, uses sound alone to simultaneously place listeners in eras separated by decades and terrains separated by oceans. The breakthrough is outlined in an auditory compendium titled New Deli (distributed by the state-run EverGreene Music, set for release February 7, 2012 ), a recording that allows the world to experience a type of soulful networking mor
