Josh Groban can pack arenas anywhere he wants. So it’s always a fun time when he decides to scale down now and then.

The Tony-nominated classical-pop crossover star will return to Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall on March 16, part of a weeklong spring tour of Florida theaters during his recently announced monthly Radio City Music Hall residency. VIP packages go on presale to fans today and should be available to the public later this week. Click here for details.

When Groban came to Ruth Eckerd Hall in 2016, it was in support of his theatrical album Stages, which he said fit more intimate stages.

“It feels like kind of an intimate show,” he said in an interview. “And so when we decided to set out on this tour, we said to ourselves, let’s make this a little bit more of an intimate experience. To be able to sing these songs in some of these beautiful theaters has been really, really rewarding. I prefer it.”

Tickets to the general public start at $103 and go on sale Friday. Click here for details.

The rapper has been sentenced to more than three years in federal prison after pleading guilty to weapons charges stemming from his arrest just before a scheduled concert performance in May. The 22-year-old admitted in August that he falsified information on federal forms to buy four firearms from a Miami-area gun shop on two separate occasions.

    The sentence was far less than the maximum 10-year sentence he could have received.
