Following the release of his 2016 album Glow and its deluxe edition last year, country music star Brett Eldredge has become synonymous with Christmas. This season the powerhouse vocalist will return for his annual Glow LIVE holiday tour, which comes to the Boch Center Wang Theatre stage on December 14.
The LIVE show will feature seasonal selections from Glow as well as other holiday hits. Eldredge’s album earned widespread praise from critics upon its initial release, with Entertainment Weekly calling it “a brassy romantic collection with bold big-band arrangements” and People detailing his “rich, pliant voice.” Its acclaim culminated in his duet of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with GRAMMY-winner Meghan Trainor reaching No. 1 on both the Adult Contemporary and Holiday Music charts.
Glow LIVE will begin with a special appearance from comedian Barry Rothbart. Rothbart is known for his work as “Kevin” on ABC’s Downward Dog and can also be seen on Showtime’s Kidding. He has performed on a variety of television programs, including: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Adam Devine’s House Party, as well as his own Half Hour with Comedy Central. He has earned several honors at the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, and on the big screen he can be seen in Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wallstreet and Demetri Martin’s Dean.
Eldredge, a Platinum-selling recording artist and songwriter, celebrated his seventh No. 1 country single earlier this year with “Love Someone.” He is currently working on his next project.
