Josh Groban is the latest big-name act headed to the new Bucks arena.

Josh Groban will perform at the new Bucks arena on Nov. 3

This morning, the Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center (WESC) announced its latest big-name concert headed to the new Downtown venue: operatic singing extraordinaire Josh Groban, who will take the stage – along with special guest Idina Menzel – on Nov. 3.

Over the past two decades, Groban has been one of the most famous and recognizable voices in all of music, belting out rapturous opera and classic songs like "The Prayer," "You Raise Me Up" and several famous Christmas and holiday icons. As a result, he's sold four multi-platinum solo albums, was the number one best-selling artist in the United States in 2007 and headlined several global arena tours – including this upcoming "Bridges" tour with "Wicked" and "Frozen" star Menzel.

Most recently, he moved from the touring stage to the Broadway stage, earning a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical last year for his lead turn in "Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812," as well as provided the soundtrack version of the song "Evermore" from Disney's most recent live-action "Beauty and the Beast" remake.

Groban's last visit to Milwaukee was in 2011, when he performed at the Bradley Center as a part of his "Straight to You" tour.

Tickets for the show will go on sale on Friday, March 16, starting at 10 a.m. However, WESC Insiders will have early access to tickets from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 15. For more information on tickets or the show, visit the WESC's website.
