Tickets to this hot Summer Indianapolis event range between $51.50 and $91.50. Don’t miss your chance to see one of the most powerful young singers of the new millennium on stage in Indianapolis downtown.
The Canadian born Michael Buble pursued his professional singing career for seven solid years before his true talent was recognized. Starting at the age of eighteen, Buble would play any gig his agent dug up including talent shows, conventions, cruise ships, malls, hotel lounges, bars, clubs, corporate gigs, musical revues, singing telegrams and even the occasional singing Santa Claus engagement. He achieved moderate success after a 1997 appearance on an award winning Bravo! documentary titled Big Band Boom! And though he produced three independent albums and received two Genie Award nominations for his original songs in the film Here’s to Life!, at the age of 25, Buble felt his career was going nowhere fast.
That is until a lucky chain of event in 2000 set Buble on the path to stardom. When a former aide to Prime Minister Brian Mulroney saw Buble at a business party, he purchased Buble’s independently financed album and shared it with Mulroney himself. The Prime Minister hired Buble to sing at his daughter’s wedding, where one of the guests happened to be multi Grammy Award winning producer David Foster. Though Foster was reluctant to sign Buble unsure of how to market his style of music, Buble and his agent pursued him relentlessly, even making the move to Los Angeles and raising money for Foster to produce the first album. With a nod of approval from Paul Anka, Foster was convinced to put Buble on his label 143 Records, and the rest is music history.
Since then Buble has won several awards including two Grammy Awards and multiple Juno Awards. With four studio albums, Michael Buble has had countless number one hits. His first album even reached into the Top Ten for several months after its release. Each subsequent release reached larger and larger crowds, making Buble a worldwide singing sensation. Having sold more than twenty five million albums worldwide, its safe to say that this crooner has finally hit it big.
His latest album Crazy Love was released in October 2009. The album’s first single, “Haven’t Met You Yet,” has lingered on the charts since the albums release. Crazy Love debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and was Buble’s fourth number one album on Billboard’s Top Jazz Album chart. It also took number one spots in both Canada and Australia upon its release. The international Crazy Love Tour has taken Michael Buble across Europe, Australia, Canada and the United States since March 2010.
In concert Buble blends a solid mix of standards and contemporary music. His golden voice illuminates old favorites like “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “Georgia On My Mind,” “Me and Mrs. Jones,” “Billie Jean/ Twist and Shout” and even “Mack the Knife.” However, he is never one to shy away from new crowd favorites like “Haven’t Met You Yet” and “Crazy Love.”
Buble has an authentic sound that never lets crowds down. His show promises to be a full evening of entertainment that will enrich Indianapolis performing arts for the duration. Before the concert, treat your date to a romantic dinner at any of these Indianapolis restaurants. Afterward, woo her gently over drinks from any of these refreshing Indianapolis bars.
