Though coming to Boston, Seinfeld’s 2010 tour is a short one- only hitting seven cities from now to December. With the end of his billion-dollar situational sitcom Seinfeld and the beginning of many film projects including his children’s film Bee Movie, Seinfeld may not be keeping up with his stand-up routines for very long.

Her latest, 100 Miles from Memphis, is Crow’s upcoming seventh studio album and her return to classic soul, the sounds that worked so well for her on her debut release. Sheryl Crow has been touring in promotion of her new album from June to September, playing the Citi Performing Arts Center in Boston on September 23rd just before wrapping up the tour in her hometown of Nashville, TN.

Revamping the old observational humor about the absurdity of everyday life, Jerry Seinfeld’s new standup comedy routine is a mix of mainstream- with rants about relationships, marriage, having kids, American consumerism- and the original- ruthless neuroticism that we’ve come to know and love on Seinfeld.
