With “Every Man Should Know,” Connick triumphs once again, with a depth of feeling that signals another milestone for one of the music world’s most multi-faceted artists. Critics have been quick to agree with People Magazine calling it “impressive,” and the Boston Globe saying thealbum features “his most thoughtful and personal songs to date” and says its “an album that every Harry Connick, Jr. fan should own.” Connick recently returned for a second year as judge on American Idol, with season 14 of the show currently airing on FOX. Since his addition to the judges’ panel, critics and fans alike have praised Connick’s contributions to the show, with Variety proclaiming that Connick “brings fun back to American Idol,” and Entertainment Weekly raving that he brings a “frank honesty but also lighthearted energy” to the show, “offering thoughtful critiques” resulting in a “fun, rollicking viewing experience.” Regarding his debut as a judge in season 13, USA Today stated that “Connick deserves most of the praise for what promises to be a creative turnaround for Idol… While Connick can be as tough as he needs to be, he’s also charming, engaging and, when he wants to be, hysterically funny.”
Following a successful winter tour and his second season as a judge on American Idol, Harry Connick, Jr. has announced a 20+ city summer concert tour which includes a stop at Peabody Opera House Tuesday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 11 at 10 a.m. Tickets may be purchased at the Scottrade Center Box Office, all Ticketmaster Ticket Centers, by phone at 800-745-3000, or online at ticketmaster.com.
