Wrestling, “50 Shades” on way; Hot Chelle Rae to play Edinboro

Impact Wrestling returns to Erie Insurance Arena on April 26. The lineup will include Kurt Angle, Austin Aries, Christopher Daniels, Kazarian, James “The Cowboy” Storm and knockouts division champion Velvet Sky.
Tickets will go on sale Friday at Warner Theatre box office, by phone at 452-4857 and online at www.erieevents.com.

Also headed to Erie: “50 Shades! The Musical,” a parody of the “50 Shades of Grey” phenomenon. A Chicago improv comedy dreamed it up and show was a hit there and at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival. Now it’s on the road and earning strong reviews for its racy but not explicit humor.
The show will be at the Warner on May 15. It goes on sale March 21; ticket prices will be announced later.

Tennessee-based band Hot Chelle Rae, which had a huge hit with “Tonight Tonight” a couple years ago, will play Edinboro University’s McComb Fieldhouse on May 4. Carolina Liars will open. Hot Chelle Rae just issued the first single from their forthcoming album. Tickets are $20; they’re available at www.edinborotickets.com.
