November 14th

THE Boss

Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band will return to Rupp Arena for the first time in 14 years on Tuesday, November 14. The last time The Boss came to town was March 26, 1988. It left a memorable impression on everyone that went-my mom said that it was one of the most exciting things she had ever seen...granted her life is not that exciting, but that should not diminish the fact that a Springsteen concert is a thrilling event. Performing no less than 20 songs, Bruce puts 100% into every show. He is legendary for putting on concerts that simultaneously exhaust and exhilarate crowds and Lexington will be no exception. Springsteen will promote his new CD The Rising (which has received great reviews from fans and critics alike, and debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 album chart), but will not skimp on crowd favorites, belting out classics like Thunder Road, Glory Days, Dancing in the Dark, and Born in the USA. 7:30pm. $75. Ticketmaster 859/281-6644.

November 20th

Southern Lights

Be dazzled by the twinkling of thousands of lights at the state's largest holiday light show. Guests to Southern Lights begin their evening by taking a 4-mile driving tour through the grounds. Along the way, lavish displays remind visitors of the splendor and traditions of the season. Brightly lit arches and snowflakes guide visitors along the route between animated displays of flat racing at Keeneland, show jumping, a steeplechase, and on towards the towers and spires of Churchill Downs. Life-like horses on all sides remind the visitor of the majesty and beauty of horses-the pride of the Bluegrass. This year Southern Lights again features new displays, along with old favorites to delight guests. Southern Lights Spectacular Sights on Holiday Nights has been designed to appeal to every age group. It represents what Kentucky's famous Bluegrass region has to offer in southern hospitality and holiday cheer, which is why it has been designated a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society. Kentucky Horse Park 5:30pm - 10pm, every night. Continues through December 31. Info: 859/233-4303.

November 1st-2nd


Nominated for six Tony Awards, including "Best New Musical," "Best Director," "Best Choreography," and "Best Orchestrations," SWING! is an all-singing, all-dancing evening of entertainment featuring a mix of new and classic songs and over 30 tour de force dance numbers-some comic, some romantic, some nostalgic, some sexy.

In addition to several original songs, SWING! features classic swing tunes such as "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," "Harlem Nocturne," "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," "Jumpin' at the Woodside," "Sing, Sing, Sing!," Stompin' at the Savoy," and "Blues in the Night."
