Rumer has it....A Star is Coming (Back) to Houston
Rumor WIllis and her best guy pal, Houstonian Tye Blue, will bring their show to H-town for an unforgettable night of entertainment.
The rumors are true. Dancing, singing, and acting idol Rumer Willis and her best guy pal Tye Blue will be making their way across the country for Willis’ Over The Love tour.
They will make a one-night-only appearance at Houston’s House of Blues on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. General Admission tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
Willis has remained at the forefront of America’s consciousness for the past few years. Born to actor Bruce Willis and wrinkle-free-faced Demi Moore, Rumer’s road to stardom was inevitable given her über-famous progeny.
But she isn’t relying on her star-studded last name to make her mark. This girl has talent by the scores. She first broke onto the scene as an actress in films like Striptease, The House Bunny, and Sorority Row, just to name a few. Her star only continues to rise.
She slayed the competition in Dancing With The Stars. She’s the girl who hot-stepped her way to the very top and clenched the mirror ball trophy, never missing a step, beat, or mark. If she decides acting isn’t for her, choreographers will climb on top of each other to get a contract with her.
In case you forgot, she’s the one who brought us this sequined-filled, flawless disco/salsa routine:
She then went on to play the role of Roxie Hart in Broadway’s Chicago while also making cameo appearances during her free time in her own cabaret act.
This triple threat doesn’t travel alone, though. Her friend-cum-manager-cum-opening act is Tye Blue, and he’s no stranger to Houston.
Having grown up in Needville, his Texas roots remain strong. Don’t let his down-to-Earth nature fool you, though. This guy can sing the house down with soul and verve that will have even Aretha Franklin fanning herself for mercy. Need proof? Just ask him to sing a few bars from “Cry Me A River” or "Fever."
His credits include acting in the touring productions of Rent and Hair as well as booking gigs at many regional theatres across the country. He also served as the host for several Houston GLBT bars including F Bar, JR’s Bar and Grill, and Guava Lamp. Even the Houston Grand Opera couldn’t deny his skills – they hired him to play Frank Schultz in their 2013 presentation of Show Boat.
As if that wasn’t enough for his resume, Blue released an album in 2013 titled Here. It features standards, classics, and that ever-so-powerful voice of his.
Be sure to check out the hometown hero Blue and his best lady friend Willis as they make their way to Houston for an unforgettable night of entertainment.
Over The Love will play at the Bronze Peacock in Houston’s House of Blues on Nov. 2. 1204 Caroline Street. For tickets, visit houseofblues.com/houston or call 888-402-5837.
