John Tesh, who served a 10-year stint as the co-host of the late night show “Entertainment Tonight,” brings his original piano composition and heartthrob hair to the Straz Center in downtown Tampa this Friday. Tesh’s biography says he simply doesn’t put on concerts—he creates an entertainment experience.

It’ll be hard to choose between Tesh and the Florida Orchestra, however, which is also playing the Straz complex on Friday.

John Tesh: Songs & Stories from the Grand Piano. Fri. Feb 28, 7:30 p.m. $29 & up. Ferguson Hall at David A. Straz Center for the Performing Arts, Tampa.
