Musician Josh Groban to play at Fraze, tickets go on sale this week


World reknown singer and songwriter Josh Groban will surely “lift up” the Fraze Pavilion on Aug. 13 during his just announced 8 p.m. show.

Members of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will accompany the chart-topping artist during the evening, which will feature songs from Groban’s latest album, “All that Echoes.”

“I think it (the concert) is going to be a wonderful draw,” said Chuck Duritsch, communications and media manager for Dayton Performing Alliance. “I think they are going to sell out very quickly.”

The Fraze is located at 695 Lincoln Park Blvd. in Kettering.

Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday at the new Fraze FanFare store in Town & Country Shopping Center, 300 E. Stroop Road, Kettering.

Advanced tickets range from $139 for Plaza seats to $55 for lawn & terrace. The price for lawn and terrace is $60 the day of the show. There will be a four-ticket per person limit the first day of the sale.

Duritsch said the concert has been under wraps for some time, and DPO is excited to take part.

“We have not done something with the Fraze for a couple of years, so we are really excited to be be back at the Fraze,” he said.

The concert will be Groban’s first appearance at the Fraze.

The 31-year-old Los Angeles native is best known for his hits “The Prayer” and “You Raise Me Up.” He has sold more than 21 million records. “All That Echoes” is Groban’s sixth album.
