Zack Zadek statement: "These are some of favorite performers on the planet, and I'm beyond excited to make music with them in such a crazy venue. This concert is really about the love of music, whether it's straight up pop, piano-rock, dance - and seeing what happens when you fuse it all with world of musical theatre and character stories. We're making it a big show, and I can't wait."
