Superstar singer/songwriter Martina McBride will share her favorite time of the year with music lovers in Northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. The 2013 Pandora Jewelry Presents Martina McBride: “The Joy of Christmas” Tour comes to the Time Warner Cable Theatre at the Resch Center on Thursday, December 19, 7:30 p.m.
“This is such a fun and special tour to do,” said Martina. “I love bringing Christmas to life on stage and putting everyone in the Christmas spirit. My favorite part of the show is the Q&A where I go into the audience. You never know what is going to happen, and the spontaneity is something I really enjoy.”
This year’s tour will include everything from pop classics like “Let it Snow” and ‘I’ll Be Home For Christmas” to beautiful hymns such as “O Come All Ye Faithful” and “O Holy Night.” Martina’s multiple wardrobe changes will enhance the entertainment.
A 12-piece band complete with a string section will back Martina, as she brings her love of the holidays to a variety of venues. A video screen depicting scenes of the season will complement Martina’s versions of traditional and contemporary holiday classics, which are sure to put concert goers in the Christmas spirit.
At each stop last year, an athlete, popular radio personality or local celebrity read “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” story, while Martina sang “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” In Green Bay, Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson shared the fun segment with the Grammy winner. Plans are to again highlight celebrities during the reading of “The Grinch” this year.
A three-time Academy of Country Music “Top Female Vocalist” award winner, four-time Country Music Association “Female Vocalist of the Year” and GRAMMY®-winning recording artist, Martina McBride has sold more than 18 million albums and garnered numerous #1 hits throughout her career. She was the special guest on George Strait’s final tour, The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, earlier this year, and she continues her headline tour through early November.
