Atlantis Live has scored another coup in Canadian crooner Michael Bublé, who will kick off his international tour with an intimate performance in paradise.
Bublé, a superstar and Grammy-award winning artist, performs on Saturday, August 31, in the 3,500-seat Imperial Ballroom at 9:30 pm.
His concert comes on the heels of the release of his latest album the slick and classy “To Be Loved”, which he thinks is the best album he’s ever made. The album showcases the crooner’s take on swinging pop music and includes songs like the brightly swinging take on “You Make Me Feel So Young”, a new-soul version of the Bee Gees’ “To Love Somebody”, and he digs deep into Smokey Robinson’s “Who’s Lovin’ You”. It also includes a number of collaborations as he features Reese Witherspoon on “Something Stupid”, and The Puppini Sisters on “Nevertheless (I’m in Love with You)”.
Bublé takes listeners on a journey with his latest album, about all different kinds of love. It’s an album that swings big time – it rocks, it’s soulful, it’s happy… sometimes a little sad, it’s romantic.
It’s an album that’s also yummy and heartfelt, and it’s that “yumminess” that Bublé will put on display on the stage at Atlantis, along with numbers from his previous albums.
Bublé is no overnight success. He has worked hard for the last 10 years to achieve the success that he has and the cultivation of his fans. And he will be bringing that same level of work ethic to the Atlantis stage to deliver big time for his fans. Bublé is practically responsible for making big band swing sounds popular again.
He puts emotion and passion into his singing
His hits include songs like “It’s a Beautiful Day”, “Close Your Eyes”, “Feeling Good”, “Everything”, “Home”, “Save The Last Dance For”, “Haven’t Met You Yet”, “Sway”, “The Way You Look”, “To Be Loved”, “Song for You”, “Lost”, “Crazy Love”, “Daddy’s Little Girl”, “Me and Mrs. Jones”, “Hold On”, “Cry Me a River”, “You Don’t Know Me”, “You And I”, “Something Stupid”, “Come Fly With Me”, “Always on My Mind”, “Fever”, “Moondance”, “Who’s Lovin’ You”, “To Love Somebody” and “Love and Hollywood”, to name a few.
His jazzy style will certainly evoke memories of big band orchestra-Frank Sinatra similarities for fans of that era. Bublé’s upcoming performance is certain to generate new fans for today among Bahamians as the Atlantis Live Concert Series has cultivated a fan set of its own of people who do not miss a show.
After playing Atlantis, Bublé takes to the road for a tour that has him in shows in Chicago, Missouri and Minnesota, Nebraska, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Washington, Colorado, Florida, Las Vegas and Australia, so his stop in The Bahamas is indeed a huge get for Atlantis.
The Atlantis Live concert series has been knocking it out of the ballpark, having brought top performers from every music genre to perform on their stage. Past performers include Jimmy Fallon, Bruno Mars, Jordin Sparks, Jason Derulo, Lady Antebellum, Josh Groban, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Sherly Crow, Colbie Caillat, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Lily Allen, Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato and Fergie.
Tickets for the show are priced at $165 and $140 and can be purchased at the Atlantis box office located in the Convention Center between the Coral and Beach Towers, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the day of the show. Showtime is 9:30 pm. Doors open at 8 p.m.
