Listen up, ladies. Blake Shelton, who was crowned People's sexiest man alive in 2017, will be making a stop in South Florida. The country music crooner will perform at the BB&T Center in Sunrise at 7 p.m. Saturday.

Across the county, longtime Foreigner frontman Lou Gramm will perform at the Casino at Dania Beach at 8 p.m. Saturday. The man who sang the lead vocals for such songs as "I Want to Know What Love Is" and "Jukebox Hero" won't let brain cancer get the best of him. Although the tumor was benign, Gramm had to undergo surgery to his pituitary gland, which damaged his vocal chords. 

Last but not least, Travis Tritt and the Charlie Daniels Band are sharing the stage at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater at 7 p.m. Sunday for the "Outlaws & Renegades Tour." Yeehaw!

Movies

Here's a look at this week's new releases:

Brie Larson is making Marvel history as the first female lead comic book hero to make it to the big screen. Larson stars as "Captain Marvel," based on the Marvel Comics character Carol Danvers.

It's the second Friday of the month, which means "Screen on the Green" returns to Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach. Friday night's free movie is the appropriate-for-all-ages "Smallfoot." The movie begins at 6 p.m. on the green overlooking the waterfront.
