Canadian jazz singer Michael Bublé closed out a very successful 2010 by returning to Staples Center for the second time this year. The 35-year old singer/songwriter has been touring in support of 2009’s Crazy Love since March 2010. Bublé spent the majority of this year selling out major arenas around the world and playing to his biggest crowds yet. He won his second Grammy Award in February 2010 and was recently nominated for two more. He also won four Juno Awards and his very first American Music Award. Bublé has sold over 25 million records worldwide and doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. Not bad for someone that grew up wanting to be a professional hockey player.

It’s completely fitting that Bublé is signed to the same record label that Frank Sinatra started. The crooner from British Columbia is often compared to “Old Blue Eyes” and it’s evident when he’s performing onstage. Bublé is a great performer and has the ability to entertain the audience even when he’s not singing. His set was mostly filled with his latest efforts off the edgier Crazy Love, but several of the songs were known covers. The artist has a wonderful knack for taking tracks from legendary artists like the Eagles, Van Morrison, Billy Vera and even the Beatles and recasting them with his relaxed style and flavor.

Michael Bublé’s Crazy Love Tour will resume in February 2011 when he heads to Australia and the Far East.
