SCOTTSBLUFF — Less than 75 seats remain for The Ten Tenors performance at the Midwest Theater on Monday, Dec 10.
The Ten Tenors, one of Australia’s most famous musical exports, are coming to Scottsbluff to perform at the Historic Midwest Theater on Monday, Dec. 10. As of Friday, Dec 7, less than 75 tickets remained. The Ten Tenors will perform their concert “Our Christmas Wish.” The Ten Tenors will donate their net proceeds for every copy of “Our Christmas Wish” sold in the U.S. to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Their record sales have already raised over $1 million to the organization.

Selections from Our Christmas Wish include traditional standards such as “Joy to the World” and “O Holy Night,” as well as John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” “Feliz Navidad” by José Feliciano, “White Christmas” by Irving Berlin,and Mariah Carey’s relatively recent contribution to the canon of holiday standards, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Now enjoying their 21st year together, The Ten Tenors playfully blend rock, pop and opera, and are “truly incandescent when performing at the full strength of 10,” according to Variety. The New York Times says their “unique mix of the traditional and unconventional offers a fresh and highly original take on the staid traditions of opera.” TTT have appeared on “The Today Show,” “Oprah’s Australian Adventure” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” among others. More than 90 million people worldwide have attended their live performances, and they have shared the stage with Lionel Richie, Rod Stewart, Andrea Boccelli, Willie Nelson, Alanis Morissette and Christina Aguilera.
