Kill the lights.

Cue the music.

Bring on the star.

There are few live-performance experiences greater than the start of the show. The crowd is amped, the music is loud and you know you're in for an awesome evening.

In 2017, that experience will replay in Missouri over and over again as some of the world's top performers stop in the Show-Me State.
