Theresa Caputo Live! The Experience

Theresa Caputo, better known to millions of fans as the “Long Island Medium” from TLC’s hit reality series, will be appearing live at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 26, at Peabody AuditoriumThrough personal stories about her life and explaining her gift to communicate with those who have passed on, Caputo will deliver healing messages to audience members, comforting them with the revelation that their deceased loved ones are still with them — just in a different way.

“The Experience” brings Caputo face-to-face with her fans as Spirit guides her through the audience. A full-stage video display ensures that everyone in the theater has an up-close experience regardless of seat location. “The Experience isn’t about believing in mediums. It’s about seeing something life-changing,” said Caputo. “It’s like Long Island Medium live, witnessing first-hand spirit communication.”

“Long Island Medium” debuted in 2011 on TLC and follows Caputo’s life as a typical Long Island mom with one very big difference…she can communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time, which leads to spontaneous readings with those she encounters. In addition to her television series, Caputohas appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Live with Kelly and Michael,” “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” “Tamron Hall” and “The Today Show.”

Caputo has authored five books including New York Times Best Sellers “Good Grief: Heal Your Soul, Honor Your Loved Ones, and Learn to Live Again” (2017) and “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” (2014). Her latest project, the “Hey Spirit” podcast, helps guests work through their grief to allow them to heal and move forward with peace and self-assurance, 

 Recognized as one of the most renowned mediums for over 30 years, Caputo’s “Long Island Medium: The Experience” is the awe-inspiring experience you won’t want to miss. Learn more about Caputo at

Chase Rice, “Way Down Yonder Tour”

  • Address: 70 Boardwalk Avenue, Daytona Beach, FL 32118
  • Presented By: Daytona Beach Bandshell
  • Dates: April 29, 2023
  • Location: Daytona Beach Bandshell
  • Time: 7:30 PM 
  • Price: Ticket prices range from $40 – $55 plus applicable surcharges.  

Chase Rice, with special guest Read Southall Band, will be performing at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29, at the Daytona Beach Oceanfront Bandshell.

With more than 2.2 million albums sold and over 2.1 billion total streams, Rice has established himself as a powerful force in Nashville and beyond; yet, as he crafts a new album in his rural Tennessee home studio, he genuinely sees recent single, “If I Were Rock & Roll,” (available everywhere now), as the launching pad for music that says what he wants to say, how he wants to say it. The song serves as a follow up to his three-part project, “The Album,” featuring hsi latest number 1 hit, “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen.” 

This is the same gravelly-voiced Rice fans first fell in love with years ago, but better. Freer. Unbeholden and uninhibited, somehow capable of evoking Chris LeDoux, campfire singalongs and stadium anthems all at once. The new music builds upon the success of his sophomore album, “Lambs & Lions,” which featured the double-platinum, two-week chart topper, “Eyes On You,” Rice’s first number one as an artist and the most streamed song of his career. “Lambs & Lions” followed “Ignite the Night,” which debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and number three on the all-genre chart, producing a pair of top five hits, “Ready Set Roll” and “Gonna Wanna Tonight.”
