Here: See the ‘Bon Jovi - The Circle Tour' at AMC

Giving fans across the country a chance to experience one of the year's most historic series of concerts, NCM Fathom and AEG Network Live will present Bon Jovi - The Circle Tour, a special event at more than 550 U.S. movie theaters at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8, including AMC Ahwatukee 24, 4915 E. Ray Road.

In anticipation of the band's soon-to-be-announced 2011 concert dates, and to celebrate the upcoming release of the Bon Jovi - Greatest Hits Collection, this special event captures the magic and energy of the band's sold-out, four-night stand at New Jersey's New Meadowlands Stadium. Bon Jovi - The Circle Tour features footage shot during these epic nights, which drew 200,000 fans on the band's home turf, and began with the stadium's inaugural concert on May 26, 2010.

Bon Jovi - The Circle Tour is exclusive to movie theaters for one night only and features performances of songs from the band's 2009 album, The Circle, as well as their career-spanning hits. The event will kick off with a sneak preview of Bon Jovi's new music video, "What Do You Got."

Tickets are available at the box office and online at

Near: Chandler Center for the Arts presents Point of Grace

On Friday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m., Point of Grace brings their positive, life-affirming music distinguished by soaring harmonies and compelling lyrics to Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 N. Arizona Ave. They will also perform songs from their just released Christmas album. They are the winner of 10 Dove Awards, including the 2009 county song of the year "IWish"!

While remaining true to their contemporary Christian roots and the expansion of its fan base into mainstream country is occurring, exactly at a time when so many have grown increasingly hungry for music that offers hope and positivity during this period of uncertainty. Point of Grace is now poised to reach a new audience with the album No Changin' Us, allowing the female trio to share their message of love and positivity with more people than ever.

The two-time Grammy nominees have sold more than 6.5 million albums and earned 24 consecutive No. 1 singles (27 total including radio staples "Steady On", "The Great Divide" and "Circle of Friends"), a feat unmatched by any artist in any genre. They've won 10 prestigious Dove Awards, including Country Recorded Song of the Year in 2008 for "How You Live" and Country Recorded Song of the Year in 2009 for "I Wish."
