Josh Groban brings his “Straight To You” World Tour to Sacramento. He’s been getting rave reviews – how could he not with a set designed by the award-winning British multi-media and digital agency Knifedge. The tour has an intimate theater setting with stage, lighting, and projection combined with Groban’s onstage presence. Groban will also be taking questions from the audience during his performance via text messages.

Thursday August 25th, 2011 ““ 7:00 p.m. ““ Raley Field
Join country duo Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland at Raley field to show your support. After the recent stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair, Sugarland had taken some time off to heal. They’re back on the road bringing all they’ve got to Sacramento with their Incredible Machine tour.

And I couldn’t have said it any better than Sugarland with this quote from an open letter to their fans. “This Incredible Machine is more than a tour and more than a set. We have always celebrated music as a Healer. While music cannot change the events and losses at the Indiana State Fair, it can hopefully serve as a ritual and a balm to provide comfort and facilitate healing in this time of great sorrow. We hope to see you all soon.”

Opening for Sugarland is singer-songwriter Sara Bareillis known for “Love Song”  and her latest hit “King of Anything”
