Grammy Award-winning rap conglomerate Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have been rapping really, really fast since the early ’90s, and they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down. Their Get Loud Tour is coming Nov. 1 to the Mohawk, and tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
The Ohio-based group gained recognition and popularity throughout the years because of their super-fast, melodic flows. As far as mainstream success, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is best known for their 1996 hit, "Tha Crossroads," but they have sold over 30 million records worldwide.
Also going on sale Friday are tickets to see one of today’s most successful stand-up comedians. Gabriel Iglesias will bring his "Unity Through Laughter" tour to the Erwin Center on Nov. 7. Iglesias came onto the scene as a member of Nickelodeon’s "All That" sketch comedy show and has since appeared on shows such as "Family Guy" and "My Wife and Kids."
Outside of acting and TV work, Iglesias has established himself most as a stand-up comedian. He built a name for himself with appearances on "Comedy Central Presents" and NBC’s "Last Comic Standing" and has hosted his own Comedy Central specials, such as 2007’s "Hot and Fluffy" and 2009’s "I’m Not Fat … I’m Fluffy."
