Tickets on sale now
Two years after performing with the Houston Symphony, tenor sensation Andrea Bocelli is making a return engagement for one night only on Nov. 28 at Toyota Center.
The evening promises an all-new program of crossover love ballads from Bocelli's recently released PBS special, Live In Central Park, in addition to sultry arias from popular operatic repertoire, the type that have made the singer a big deal, land a hot wife and sell over 70 million records globally since 1994. Did we mention he's blind?

At $75 a ticket and up, with best seats costing several hunderd dollars, consider it an early Christmas present. The price may be steep by Houston standards, but when the laws of supply and demand hit entertainment, there's nothing stopping nonprofit entities from making a buck or two — and offering an incentive to boost season ticket sales.
