4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince

Fri., Sept. 28, 8 p.m.

The untimely death of icon Prince Rogers Nelson has left a Corvette-sized hole in our collective hearts. The last time Prince performed in Detroit he took to the Fox Theatre stage for a sold-out performance announced just days before as part of his Hit and Run Tour. Fittingly, just three years later, the only Prince Estate-approved tribute will honor the Purple One on the same stage. 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince will draw from his extensive music catalog as performed by a full symphony orchestra, as curated by Prince superfan, Questlove, along with a live band accompanied by archival photos and video footage. $29.50+

Russell A. Taylor is better known by his moniker Satori Circus — the chalk-faced cabaret performer who, for the better part of three decades, has both seduced and confounded audiences. Taylor is both the creative director and main performer in what can only be described as performance art meets rock opera. By fusing music with pantomime, film-inspired elements, spoken word, slapstick, and a veil of hyper-subversive sexuality, Satori Circus has the freak flag on lock. These back-to-back, career-spanning performances will include special guests as well as vignettes from his most recent piece, "Stroke." $20

Sinbad

Sat., Sept. 29, 8 p.m.

If you’ve noticed beloved comedian and national treasure Sinbad trending on social media recently, it’s not because he has died but because people are obsessed with figuring out whether or not he starred as a genie in a forgotten ’90s movie titled Shazaam. While the mystery continues, what Sinbad has irrefutably done is keep us laughing with his wholesome and long-winded musings on marriage, fatherhood, and getting old. The 61-year-old has built a reputation on being the good guy. From his role as the late Phil Hartman’s Houseguest to a clumsy secret service agent tasked with protecting the First Kid, Sinbad can now be seen as “dad” on the Fox comedy Rel. $62.50+

Dream Wife

Sun., Sept. 30, 8 p.m.

The origin story behind how tight-knit indie trio Dream Wife came to be may or may not have involved Jägerbombs and a disco-dance floor while studying at Brighton University in England. What started as an art project between Rakel Mjöll (vocals), Alice Go (guitar), and Bella Podpadec (bass) in 2014, Dream Wife has since become definitive of the new wave of fierce-femme rock championed by Blondie, Bikini Kill, and the Slits. “I am not my body/ I am somebody,” Mjöll sings on “Somebody,” which is just one of many examples of Dream Wife’s call to celebrate female solidarity and general badassery found on the band’s recent self-titled debut. $12-$14

Star Wars: A New Hope

Fri., Sept. 28, 8 p.m., Sat., Sept. 29, 8 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 30, 3 p.m.
,

Long before roly-poly android BB-8 and Adam Driver’s super-square torso, there was Star Wars: A New Hope — the remarkable journey that sparked a worldwide fascination with a galaxy far, far away. The first film in the beloved franchise introduces us to a remarkable cast of characters, all of whom search for meaning as they confront their own struggles with light and dark. Perhaps one of the most integral characters in the film is one that is not seen, but heard. The iconic Oscar-winning score by John Williams will be performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in time with a screening of the timeless film. $50+
