Whether you prefer your stage performers quirky, viral or mop-topped, Newsday Westchester’s got the goods on performances and shows this weekend.
Thursday-Saturday: Mitch Fatel at Levity Live
A former intern for Howard Stern’s radio show, Fatel is a soft-spoken yet foul-mouthed comic who’s been known to confuse audiences with his choppy delivery before leading them into hysterical laughter. In addition to slaying crowds at his two popular Comedy Central stand-up specials, he’s done sets for David Letterman and Jay Leno’s late night shows.
When: 8 p.m., Thursday, June 14; 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday, June 17; 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, June 18
Info: Levity Live, 4210 Palisades Center Dr., West Nyack; 845-353-5400; www.levitylive.com; $17-$20, plus two-item minimum per person
Friday: Michael Bolton at Tarrytown Music Hall
Known to younger generations as “that guy from the ‘Saturday Night Live’ digital short about Captain Jack Sparrow,” the Grammy-winning singer brings his hit ’90s ballads and soaring vocals to Tarrytown Music Hall during his 115-city world tour. In addition to laughing at himself on “SNL,” Bolton is likely laughing all the way to the bank, too. On the strength of hits like “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You,” “Time, Love and Tenderness” and “How Can We Be Lovers,” he’s sold more than 53 million albums and singles internationally.
Saturday: Ringo Starr at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts
Yes, the second “r” in his All-Starr Band is a pun, but Ringo Starr’s accompanying band does a good job living up to both sets of expectations. The Beatles drummer’s touring band is stacked with rock pedigree, including Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie of Santana and Journey, Steve Lukather of Toto, and Richard Page of Mr. Mister.
When: 8 p.m., Saturday, June 16
Info: Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, 200 Hurd Rd., Bethel; 866-781-2922; bethelwoodscenter.org; $35.50-$172.50; $116.00 for four tickets on the lawn; all ticket prices increase $5 on day of show
