18 upcoming Tacoma events to check out in 2018

When searching for a night of en­tertainment and fun, Tacoma is prob­ably the last place that comes to mind. Seattle usually takes the crown for being the one stop shop for tours and shows featuring famous rappers, singers and even comedians. But that doesn’t mean Tacoma is left isolated from the ex­travaganza.

This year, we’ll have everything from the iconic pop legend Smokey Robinson to the biggest St. Patrick’s Day rave in the Pacific Northwest. Even high rank­ing celebrities like Jeff Dunham and his puppet friends and Dean Cole from “Black-ish” and the “Barbershop” sequel will be traveling to the Tacoma area.

Several of these events are most likely to leave a dent in your wallet, but a few of them are truly a bang for your buck. For instance, check out Get Dead at JazzBones on Sixth Avenue if you’re into punk rock on a budget. If you’re looking for a good laugh, Lunell will be performing at the Tacoma Comedy Club Feb. 22 — ladies are free and men are $10. Katy Perry will also be return­ing to the Tacoma Dome for her Wit­ness tour Feb. 3. Tickets to see the pop sensation are quite pricey, but if you don’t mind sitting in nosebleed seats, it’ll cost you roughly $50. Here’s a tip: download the Groupon app on your smartphone to get deals on all sorts of concert tickets!
