Who Is He: Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, Michael Bolton's blend of blue-eyed pop and soul landed the singer at the top of the charts. Bolton, 60, performs tonight at Harrah's Resort.
What To Expect: Bolton has retained a sizable fan base that is still willing to shell out money to see the mainstream soft-rock singer do his thing. Bolton performed in June in Oklahoma. His setlist included the songs "Time, Love & Tenderness," "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You," "Said I Loved You... But I Lied" and "How Can We Be Lovers."
Event Info: The singer performs 9 tonight in Showroom at Harrah's Resort. Tickets, priced at $40 and $65, are available at Harrah's box office, Ticketmaster or pressof
Eileen Ivers at Landis

During the past seven years, she has played material that includes a more pop-style song "Reconcili-ation," the bluegrass/blues-infused "Blizzard Train," the traditional song "Flowing Tide" and the 300-year-old tune "Loftus Johns." She performs with her band, Immigrant Soul.

Learn wildlife gardening
