Why see Paula Abdul?

Straight Up Paula!

She may be best known to younger generations as a host on American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, but Paula Abdul was one of the biggest names in 80s and 90s pop. Join Abdul for her nationwide trek this September and October! The 'Straight Up' and 'Forever Your Girl' singer will be joined by Taylor Dayne and Tiffany.

Graduating from her career as a choreographer (to Janet Jackson among others), Paula hit the big time with her 1988 album Forever Your Girl, a collection of R&B and New Jack Swing-infused tracks like 'Opposites Attract' and 'Straight Up', which became the biggest-selling debut album of all time. The subsequent years included many more smash hits, choreography gigs for movies like Big and American Beauty, and a move into TV hosting. To celebrate her 30 years in showbiz, Paula is launching this massive Straight Up Paula! tour across the States. Expect all the hits and some seriously good dancing.

The Crowd was on Their Feet!

It was a fantastic show! From the moment Paula stepped onto the stage until the finally, the New Buffalo, MI crowd were on their feet singing and dancing. Including such a variety of technology brought the music alive for a new generation; all enhanced by the theatrical events displayed chronicling Paula's journey. If you want to stand on your feet, singing and dancing along with this dynamic performer, take your feet to see this show!...even if you have to drive four hours like our crowd did! ... Read more

A Celebration & A Surprisingly Intimate Autobiography

Paula Abdul pleased all her true fans in the hall in Lynn last night with a creative multimedia production & a very open-hearted, unguarded retelling of the highs and lows of her career. AND she looked and danced like she was half her age! Abdul was always a dancer and choreographer first and a singer second. It's true anyone who came to her sing live was disappointed - she used the original recording (I think) of all her songs (although, come to think of it, the opening bars of 'Cold- Hearted Snake' were sung jazz-style) and focused instead on the dancing. And what dancing there was! Wow. Abdul was always a thrill to watch dance, and she still is. She had a small team of top-notch dancers with her. Abdul's choreography is a joy and a pleasure to watch. I was enthralled. I sat near the back of the floor section (which looked sold out to me). We were on our feet dancing for at least half the show, at Abdul's encouragement, and it was a blast. (No one left early, as far as I could tell.) ... Read more
