Tonight @ the Bradley Center - 7:30 p.m.

Keeping with Cirque du Soleil’s vision of cramming as many amazing acts of human agility onto a stage as can possibly fit at one time, Saltimbanco is the company’s oldest touring revue and a good overview of the company’s blend of ballet, juggling, acrobatics and general feats of strength. Though, like all of Cirque du Soleil’s early...

Along with the hits—and a certain song from Titanic...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Sept. 25, Common w/ N.E.R.D. @ The Rave, 8 p.m. Kanye West cemented his star-making reputation when he produced Common’s 2005 hit Be, a soulful, down-to-Earth album that resuscitated Common’s career after 2002’s ambitious but muddled Electric Circus. Since then, life has been good...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Sept. 18, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir @ The UWM Gasthaus, 8 p.m. Despite what their moniker promises, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir isn’t from Scotland; they don’t play gospel; and, for that matter, they’re not a choir. They’re a Chicago co-ed indie pop ensemble with a warm, dreamy sound...

Today @ the Bradley Center - 7:30 p.m.

Arriving after the commercial disappointments of Ruben Studdard and Fantasia—and just before the pop-chart poison that was Taylor Hicks—Carrie Underwood proved that “American Idol” could create a bona fide mega-star, with create being the operative word. In Underwood’s malleable voice and vague, girl-next-door charm, the show’s producers found a blank slate, one they molded into the most old-fashioned...

Dance Preview

   A series of fast-paced, kaleidoscopic images that blend light, motion, color and sound has long been the essence of the venerable organization Cirque du Soleil. Now, Milwaukee-area audiences will have a rare opportunity to see a restaging of Cirque's very first traveling show, Saltimbanco, which opens a five-day run at the Bradley Center on Oct. 1.  Cirque du Soleil's style borrows heavily from theater, dance and music to create a unique entertainment form, and Saltimbanco promises to make use of these distinctive elements. Cirque, which originated in...

Tonight @ the Bradley Center - 7 p.m.

“It’s getting hot in here, so take off all your…” well, you know the rest. Nelly scored a major hit with that 2002 single, “Hot In Herre” (sic), but his fame has waned in subsequent years, putting increased pressure on his upcoming album, Brass Knuckles, which is set for a September release. The pop-rapper will likely debut . . .

Tonight @ the Bradley Center - 7 p.m.

Sheryl Crow has come a long way since she sang backup for Michael Jackson on his 1987 “Bad” tour. Resisting early offers to record as a dance-pop artist, she waited until the ’90s to release her first album, which established her as a something-for-everyone singer-song writer. Her singles have found her . . .

This Week in Milwaukee

This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb w/ Hidden Spots, Future Virgins @ Borg Ward, 7 p.m. Though sonically removed from each other, the soft acoustic stylings of Pensacola, Fla.’s This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb actually share a great deal in common with the aggressively political punk of forefathers like the Dead Kennedys and Minor...
