Audra McDonald books Tacoma concert this fall

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

This is probably old news for diehard Audra McDonald fans. But for the rest of you, take note that she's headed this way. The Broadway star will appear October 25 at Tacoma's Pantages Theatre, as part of a 32-city coast-to-coast tour that also includes stops in Los Angeles, Boston, and New York City, plus concerts in Melbourne and Sydney. A multiple Tony Award winner, McDonald is one of the most successful all-time performers from the theater industry, but is also known as a Grammy-winning recording artist, TV actress, and philanthropist. She's been a strong supporter of LGBT rights as well and has helped raise money for homeless youth projects. This year, the versatile entertainer found herself starring opposite Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline in the motion picture Ricki and the Flash. Tickets for Audra McDonald, priced at $35, $56, $76, and $99, are on sale now at BroadwayCenter.org, or by calling the box office at (253) 591-5894, or toll free at 1-800-291-7593. The performance, by the way, takes place in the afternoon at 3 p.m.

Returning to Seattle this fall is Rufus Wainwright, who'll play The Showbox Market on October 6. Interestingly, the concert is squeezed into an international tour itinerary that has him appearing in Japan five days before and in Ireland two weeks later. To my knowledge, the New York-based singer-songwriter isn't releasing any new music in the immediate future, after putting out both a greatest hits and live album in 2014. Therefore, I'm assuming his set list will include a lot of Wainwright fan favorites, such as 'Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk,' 'Going to a Town,' 'The One You Love,' and 'The Art Teacher.' But don't quote me on that. Whatever he sings, it'll be fabulous. The theatrical-pop artist will perform two shows - early and late - on October 6 with tickets on sale now at axs.com or The Showbox box office on 1st Avenue.

The final performance of the summer-long Olympic Music Festival is happening this weekend with superstar violinist Ray Chen collaborating with festival director and pianist Julio Elizalde. The duo will combine their talents on afternoon recitals each day featuring music by Beethoven, Saint-Saens, Ysaye, Falla, and Monti. Ticket prices range between $14 and $32 with each concert - at 2 p.m. on September 5 and 6 - being staged in an early 1900s dairy barn on a 55-acre farm about 18 miles from Port Townsend. For more information, or to purchase tickets, go to (360) 732-4800.

Miley Cyrus dropped her new album, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, surprisingly last weekend that coincided with hosting the MTV VMAs (which only five million people saw, an all-time low). The album is free, as a download, and features the single 'Dooo It.' New albums are also coming soon from Rihanna, Tinashe, Chris Isaak, and M.I.A., who worked with Skrillex on her latest record.

Finally, that Madonna concert in Portland is rapidly approaching. The October 17 show will include some of the pop queen's biggest hits, along with songs from her newest effort, Rebel Heart. Tickets are available at LiveNation.com.
