Dear GYA, People have been asking me if there's gonna be a sequel to Magic Mike and the answer is yes, yes and yes. As you know, in the last film you see me quit the industry after I get screwed over by Matthew McConaughey. So, I'm thinkin' for the sequel I'll go train in a mountain village with a stripper sensei, get really inspired and then come back and beat the hell out of McConaughey with my lady charmer. It'll be called Magic Mike 2: Cocked & Loaded. In the meantime, anything good happening tonight?- Channing Tatum
Channing, I can't wait to see this. It seems like there aren't enough male-stripper action-revenge films. This will undoubtedly be your crowning achievement. Here's what's happening tonight:
Soul manRaphael Saadiq will be headlining the Twilight Concert Series tonight at Pioneer Park. The Grammy winner and former frontman of Tony! Toni! Tone! probably won't be playing any of his classic '80s R&B hits like "Let's Get Down," but you never know. The show starts at 7 p.m. Look for City Weekly's The Word for some free swag!
The celebrated musician Yanni will be performing at Abravanel Hall this evening. Though his flowing hair and spectacular mustache aren't what they were in the '90s, you can still expect one hell of show. Yanni is touring his new album, Truth of Touch, which is his first release in almost a decade. Interesting Yanni fact: He wrote the music for ABC's World News Now. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.
Singer and actress Demi Lovato will be live at Energy Solutions Arena. You may remember her from the hit show Barney & Friends, or maybe from her appearances in the Camp Rock movies, or maybe you know her for her musical talents. Her 2008 album Don't Forget debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200. The show starts at 7 p.m.
Other worthwhile events happening tonight:
- The Utah Botanical Garden will holding a Farmers Market, beginning at 5 p.m.
- The Utah Festival Opera will performing Kiss Me Kate at the Ellen Eccles Theatre.
