What could we possibly write about the man, the myth, the velvet-voiced legend, Mr. Michael Steven Anita Ariella Alaska Buble, that you don’t already know?
So we won’t waste your time (or ours) with lengthy proclamations of his songwriting skill, his unimpeachable penchant for performance, his ability to serenade, soothe and, ultimately, save even the coldest of souls. We won’t tell you how, one time, at band camp, when we were still just a know-nothing pamphlet with a monochromatic color scale and farfetched dreams of becoming a full-fledged alt weekly ….
Ok. Maybe we won’t tell you that story. We will, however, suggest in the strongest possible sense that you do yourself a self-loving favor and pony up the dough for the chance to spend an evening alongside The Artist Still Known as Buble.
Because the truth is, when Big Poppa Buble plays, it’s not just a concert, not just any old show. Heck, it’s not even just an evening of enticements, of earthly delights …
It’s a god damn dream-inducing, heart-pumping, stomach melting experience, the likes of which you’ll never, ever, ever forget. Even if you then struggle later to describe it to friends, family members and … readers?
