By Sherlene Shanklin

Spring into love with an Evening of Soul with R & B superstars Charlie Wilson and Patti LaBelle along with special guest El DeBarge.

The trio will perform at the KFC Yum! Center on Saturday, April 6th. Doors open at 6:00 pm and the concert will begin at 7:00 pm.

The last time, I attended a concert of Wilson his stage performance was second to none. The high energy show moved with dancers and a band for over 50 minutes.

You would expect to pay a lot of money to see these artists are definitely getting a deal with it only costing you between $42 and $125 dollars.

The VIPP Report: Louisville native Bryson Tiller announces “Set It Off” tour

BrysonTiller-louisville-620x385-9ff5ad17fc

By Sherlene Shanklin

His “Trap Soul” album took the music industry by storm.  Now, Louisville native and Grammy nominated artist Bryson Tiller announces his “Set It Off” tour and of course his hometown is on the list.

Fans will see Bryson on Saturday, September 16 at the KFC Yum! Center as part of his North American tour.  Metro Boomin and R&B singer H.E.R. will open the show.

His new album “True to Self” is already getting rave reviews and maybe ranked of No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. He surprised fans by releasing it on May 26th about a month earlier than its anticipated date.

I will monitor that ranking when it comes out this Sunday, June 4. This is only Bryson’s aka Pen Griffey’s second album.  The RCA artist has been singing and rapping since his high school days at Iroquois High and in 2014 his single “Don’t” became a hit thanks to the internet and his new found followers. Artists like Drake and Timbaland vibed on Tiller’s sound and that’s what got labels interested.

Now, he’s had hits like “Sorry Not Sorry”, “Exchange” and his current hit “Somethin Tells Me”.

Bryson is already collecting plenty of hardware for his trophy case. In 2016, he won Best new artist, Best R& B/Pop artist at the BET Awards. He also won Best New R & B artist at the iHeart Radio Music Awards this year.  His nominations have been adding up too from the Grammy Awards to the Billboard Music Awards.

The tour kicks off on June 23rd in Los Angeles in the Staple Center.

Tickets for the September 16th show in Louisville start at $39.50. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Janet

Janet Jackson official photo

By Sherlene Shanklin

She’s went on maturity leave and many thought she may not return.  There’s been hints all day from the multi-Grammy Award winning artist that something was brewing.  A video saying she would return but when?

Then at 10:20 pm tonight, an email pops into my inbox announcing the Janet Jackson 2017 State of the World Tour.  The 56-city tour will begin on Thursday, September 7th in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Louisville, KY is on that tour schedule.  Jackson will be at the KFC Yum! Center on Friday, December 1st.  Tickets go on sale Friday, May 5th, (Oaks Day).

Don’t forget if you previously purchased tickets for the Unbreakable Tour they will be honored for the news dates.  Janet cancelled the concert because she was expecting her first child and was told by doctors to rest.  She had that baby January 3rd of this year.

The VIPP Report: Is Louisville back in the NBA conversation? Will they be on this map soon?

Special Report from Sherlene Shanklin with WHAS11 in Louisville (ABC Affiliate)

The411 with Sherlene Shanklin:  There’s a buzz once again that Louisville maybe in the running for a NBA team.  I’ve been following this story since the inception of the possibility.  Several years ago, it sounded far-fetched but today the tone sounds a little more positive.  I spoke to several people and they say it’s possible but all of the planets have to be aligned for it to happen.  The first concern is…where will they play?  Can the KFC Yum! Center accommodate both the Louisville Cardinals men and women’s basketball teams, special events and the NBA?

Can we afford the ticket prices on a regular basis to sustain the league.  The average ticket is $97.00 and could go into several hundred for premium seats.  There’s a total of 82 games, which will likely be somewhere around 41 home games in a NBA season plus the playoffs.

Louisville would get help from area cities that do not have a professional team, such as Cincinnati and Nashville.

So, is it possible?   I know that Junior Bridgeman and Grant Hill were working on a possible deal.  Is it Louisville? I guess we will have to see.

Give me your thoughts.  If you have a story idea, send it to The411@whas11.com.  You can follow me on Twitter @Sherlenemediapr and Instagram @Sherlenemediapro for real-time news and conversation on the following topic.

The VIPP Report: Where in the world is Katt Williams? No show tonight in Louisville, KY

Katt_Louisville_620x385-2c556876bcNone of these guys showed up tonight in Louisville, Ky.  Katt Williams is a no show!

By Sherlene Shanklin

Saturday, April 16, 2016

(Louisville, KY)  Loyal fans of the comedian/actor Katt Williams waited for hours in Louisville, KY at the KFC Yum! Center just to find out that he would not be doing his show.  Fans had hoped that “The Conspiracy Theory” tour would give them a little laughter on Saturday night but instead thousands of fans sat and waited patiently for Williams to take the stage which never happened.

Louisville had a lot of events going on tonight from Zeta Phi Beta conference with celebrity member Sheryl Underwood as a guest, Phi Beta Sigma conference, Motown the Musical and the University of Louisville Red-White football game as well as other events.  So, many guests to the city had decided to make Williams’ show apart of their visit.

Here’s the message the KFC Yum! Center sent in regards to Katt Williams’ show: 

“Due to circumstances beyond the KFC Yum! Center’s control, Katt Williams will be unable to perform at tonight’s KFC Yum! Center show as originally scheduled.  All guests may request a refund at the original point of purchase.”

The VIPP Report: Music icon Janet Jackson adds a third leg to her tour

janet-jackson-to-release-new-album-2015-2

Special from The411 with Sherlene Shanklin, WHAS11 Television

I said it would happen and now “Ms. Jackson” will make a stop in Louisville for her Unbreakable Tour. We have to wait a little while but she will have all of the kinks of the tour out when she comes to the KFC Yum Center. Many of her fans will not mind because her show will be well worth the wait. Janet Jackson will be in Louisville on Wednesday, June 8, 2016.

The GRAMMY® Award-winner and multi-platinum selling artist announced a third North American leg to her UNBREAKABLE WORLD TOUR and of course Louisville was on that list. I understand Janet was listening to her fans and their overwhelming response to both her new music and her tour caused her to add a second city in Kentucky.

Tickets for the Louisville show go on sale to the public beginning at 10am on Saturday, September 19 at www.livenation.com, www.ticketmaster.com, the KFC Yum! Center box office and all Ticketmaster outlets.
