Originally called The Met, Boston's premier performing arts venue started life as a glittering movie "cathedral", dripping in chandeliers and marble. It's splendour faded somewhat in the 1960s and 70s, but a ambitious restoration, funded in large part by the Wang family, brought it back to its former glories. It now plays host to dozens of broadway shows, operas and concerts every year.

Leon Bridges

March 5, 2016

The young Texan "Coming Home" singer is going on tour this summer in support of his debut album. The gospel and soul singer harks back to an older time, with a strong emphasis on 1960s rhythm and blues. He has gained national press attention for his work, with The Wall Street Journal describing him as a "throwback to '60s-soul a la Otis Redding and Sam Cooke". He also makes a point of performing in vintage clothing from the era, making his act a true throwback to nostalgic times.
