You could spend a couple of hundred bucks on a theater ticket, or enjoy one of these shows, concerts and other events for $20 or less. These one-night only special events in June will help you enjoy NYC on the cheap.
CeeLo Green Concert and Cruise Combo– The multi-talented R&B star and TV show host performs next week at a special combo concert and cruise event that celebrates the release of his latest solo album, Heart Blanche. The evening starts with a one-hour pre-party harbor cruise, then you return to Pier 83 for this Circle Live Summer Series Concert with Atlanta R&B and soul singer CeeLo Green (Goodie Mob, Gnarls Barkley). A five-time Grammy winner, Green (who was a coach on NBC’s The Voice) will pay homage to the great music legends that inspired him, including such as Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Ike and Tina Turner and B. B. King, by playing new and classic CeeLo Green hits (“Crazy,” “Forget You”), plus throwback covers from those who helped shape his own music and sound.
