Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017

At Greensboro Coliseum 7:30 pmSaturday, October 14, 2017

The “Soul2Soul The World Tour 2017” celebrates the 10th anniversary of the record-breaking “Soul2Soul II” tour, the highest-grossing country music tour of all time, and the first time Faith Hill has toured since 2007.

“We have the best fans in the world, who have been with us through our entire journey and we are so excited to celebrate with them by going back on the road and showcasing an exciting new show,” said Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.

McGraw and Hill have been dominating the music charts since the early ‘90s. They began touring together in 2000 in their record-breaking “Soul2Soul” tour, becoming that year’s top grossing and most successful U.S. tour. Their success continued in 2006-2007 when “Soul2Soul II” returned to the road, which was the most attended tour of the year in any musical genre and remains the highest grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history.

McGraw has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and dominated the charts with 41 #1 singles.  He’s won three Grammy Awards, 16 Academy of Country Music Awards, 14 Country Music Association Awards, 10 American Music Awards, three People’s Choice Awards and numerous other honors. His iconic career achievements include being named the BDS Radio’s Most Played Artist of the Decade for all music genres, having the Most Played Song of the Decade for all music genres with “Something Like That,” and being the only artist to score two sets of three simultaneous top 20 Billboard Country Airplay hits. He is the most played country artist since his debut in 1992, with two singles spending over 10 weeks at #1 (“Live Like You Were Dying” and “Over and Over”). His recent multi-chart number 1 single “Humble and Kind,” off his Damn Country Music album is his 59th release to hit top 10 or better. His critically-acclaimed acting skills were highlighted in the award-winning movies “Friday Night Lights” and “The Blind Side,” and he will be appearing in the movie “The Shack” next year.

Hill is one of the top-selling and most-awarded female artists of all time. In addition to multiple nominations and five Grammy Awards, she has won an impressive 12 ACM Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards, four People’s Choice Awards and three CMA Awards. She has consistently broken chart records with 14 #1 singles and multiple albums topping both the Billboard Top 100 and Country charts.  She has six certified multi-platinum studio albums and has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

O.Henry Hotel Jazz Series: Melva Houston

6:30 PM Saturday Mar 26, 2016 624 Green Valley Road Greensboro, NC 27408

 

We’re underwriting the first in what we hope will be an ongoing O.Henry Jazz Series! Cocktails and Jazz at the O.Henry has been so much fun that we asked the amazing Victoria and Neill Clegg to curate an extension of the O.Henry Jazz scene. On select Saturdays you can enjoy vintage craft cocktails and delightful tapas garnished with an eclectic array of jazz artists performing in the styles of contemporary jazz from 6:30 – 9:30 PM.

March 26 | Melva Houston

Melva Houston will be returning to the O.Henry Jazz Series for Easter Weekend!

Melva Houston was born in Memphis, Tennessee, home to many black blues performers. She grew up in the tradition of gospel, blues and jazz and made a name for herself by performing regularly on a popular radio show. Shortly thereafter, she became a background singer for Stax-Records and by age 16, was singing for songwriter Isaac Hayes. She was such a popular background singer that she made numerous recordings with stars such as Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Sam and Dave and other Stax artists. In the eighties, she accompanied “The Platters” on their European tour and from 1988 to 1996, toured Spain as a soloist, achieving overwhelming success. In North Carolina, Melva is a permanently sought-after performer at renowned jazz festivals. Most recently, she has devoted herself to blues. She regularly interprets Broadway songs with the same persuasiveness as the jazz standards of Gershwin, Ellington and Cole Porter or compositions from Thelonious Monk and Horace Silver.
