The show includes a mixture of new songs and classic hits as well as duets with Tony-Award winning, multi-platinum recording artist Idina Menzel along with a special appearance by Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles.
The live set features Josh’s band accompanied by a choir and orchestra and kicks off with “Bigger Than Us” from his newest studio album Bridges. Followed by the 2008 hit “You Are Loved (Don’t Give Up)” and another new track, “Won’t Look Back,” Josh performs an electrifying mix of beloved classics, new songs, and special covers, including the standard “Pure Imagination,” Billy Joel’s “She’s Always A Woman,” and “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables. Idina Menzel joins Groban for two captivating duets, including the angelic “Lullaby” and the emotionally-charged “Falling Slowly” from the movie Once. At this performance, Groban was also joined on stage by songstress Jennifer Nettles for a remarkable duet of “99 Years” before he closed his set with a stunning rendition of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”
