Josh Groban entertains with ‘personal’ ‘Stages’ concert

Award-winning Josh Groban brought his “Stages” show to the big screen as Fathom Events partnered with the Grammy Award nominated singer to bring his “Stages” concert to theaters for a one-night event.

Groban delivered a busy night of timeless classics with a personal story or introduction as the show progressed. Groban amazes and entertains with his renditions of “All I Ask of You” (The Phantom of the Opera), “Anthem” (Chess), “Bring Him Home” (Les Misérables), “Pure Imagination” (Charlie & the Chocolate Factory) and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” (The Wizard of Oz) among many others.

From his early days, paying tribute to mentors and milestones throughout his life, Groban revealed a deeper appeal that his fans connect to and Kelly Clarkson joined Groban for a number which drew an amazing response.

Groban, now 34, has released seven studio albums and did an amazing job bringing the GRAMMY-nominated album to life.

“Theater and musical theater have always been in my heart,” Groban said. “These are songs I’ve wanted to sing since I was in high school.”

Stages showcased Groban’s amazing voice, but presentation was plagued with bizarre camera angles and transitions. Anytime the visuals distract from the show it’s a big problem worth noting. The close of Stages seemed awkward and the high note came a couple of songs earlier, making the final ten to twenty minutes extremely tedious and challenging for the casual fan.

Josh Groban will hit the road this summer in support of his massively successful album Stages. JOSH GROBAN: ON STAGE, produced by Live Nation, kicks off on July 15, 2016 in New Orleans, LA and will hit more than 20 cities around the country. Sarah McLachlan will join Josh Groban as a special guest on select dates during the tour. For complete tour, ticket, and VIP package information visit LiveNation.com.

Fans can find tons of other events by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 400 movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network.

For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Overall Stages receives 3 out of 5 stars
