Elton John, Cirque du Soleil and Globetrotters appearing in next few months
Macon is known for the various forms of entertainment available in the city.
The following are a few of many events that will be held at the Macon Centreplex this semester.
The first big event coming to Macon is the Advance Auto Monster Jam on February 22-23.
Although monster truck rallies are not generally considered to be the most cultured of events, they are still quite enjoyable and entertaining to attend.
Some people enjoy seeing a truck the size of a small mobile home crushing a series of cars.
The events are usually action-packed and do well in sales.
The month of March features many promising events at the Macon Centreplex.
The first is the Harlem Globetrotters playing on March 13.
The Globetrotters are an exhibition basketball team that combines intricate displays of skills on the court with comedy and theatricality.
The Globetrotters have provided entertainment for millions for several decades and have played more than 20,000 exhibition games since being founded in 1927.
The team gets the crowds pumped once their theme music, a whistled version of “Sweet Georgia Brown,” announces their arrival onto the court.
The Globetrotters are always a crowd pleaser and well worth seeing.
On March 14, just one day after the Globetrotters event, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley will be visiting Macon on their Locked & Reloaded Tour.
The 29-year-old Lambert has been nominated for multiple Grammys and won in 2011 for her hit single, “The House That Built Me.”
She has created a unique and soulful style of country music that harkens back to the famous country songstresses of old.
Bentley, age 37, is a multi-platinum singer/songwriter known for his own unique style of country music.
He combines modern country with influences from classic country performers.
The two performers’ styles should complement each other well and make the show worth watching.
The upcoming Elton John concert may be the most anticipated event in the next few months.
It is Sir Elton John’s first Macon concert in 12 years.
He is one of the most successful live performers in history and is famous for putting on unique and entertaining shows that manage to fill venues very quickly.
Tickets for this event are already becoming scarce, as the remaining seats for the concert are being bought.
Sir Elton has been active in the music industry since the 1960s and hqw continuee to grow in popularity, creating music that appeals to a wide audience.
The 65-year-old continues to perform for packed audiences across the world.
Sir Elton John will be playing at the Macon Centreplex on March 20.
From May 3-5, the world famous Cirque du Soleil: Quidam will be performed in Macon.
Quidam is the ninth stage show produced by Cirque du Soleil.
The show has met with rave reviews since its tour began in 2010.
It takes place in the imagination of a young girl who is alienated and forgotten by her parents.
She creates the mystical world of Quidam to escape her droll life.
The show combines complex acrobatics with traditional circus acts to create a mesmerizing and mind-bending experience.
