On the radar: upcoming local entertainment

tuesday

Keller Williams: The highly likable entertainer offers funk, bluegrass, rock, reggae, whistling, folksy raps and funny business. He's returning to the one-man "loop" act he's built his career upon. Essentially, Williams records himself playing, then puts it on a loop so that he can switch to other instruments and arrangements. It gives the illusion of a full band, and frankly, it dazzles. 8 p.m. Jannus Landing, 16 Second St. N, St. Petersburg. $20 advance, $24 day of show. (727) 896-2276. jannuslandingconcerts.com.

wednesday

Celine Dion: The Canadian diva comes to town with her Taking Chances tour, returning to soldout stadiums across the country. 7:30 p.m. St. Pete Times Forum, 401 Channelside Drive, Tampa. $46.75 and up. (813) 301-2500. stpetetimesforum.com.

thursday

John Legend: The neo-soul singer and pianist combines the raw fervor of contemporaries Cody Chesnutt and the burning precision of D'Angelo. Performs with Estelle. 8 p.m. Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwater. $39.50-$59.50. (727) 791-7400. rutheckerdhall.com.

Royal Lipizzan Stallions Winter Training: The fabulous flying white Lipizzan horses as seen in Walt Disney's Miracle of the White Stallions train not too far from the bay area, and visitors are welcome to watch. 3 p.m. Thursday-Friday, 10 a.m. Saturday, through April 30.
