Nick Lachey

7:30 p.m. Thursday, October 26. Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center on the campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road).


Nick Lachey's first solo effort post-98 Degrees (2003's SoulO — yikes!) may have been lukewarm at best, but the former Mr. Jessica Simpson more than proved his ability to heat up the charts with the release of that album's follow up, What's Left of Me. In fact, Me sure makes it sound like nothing heals a broken heart more than public sympathy — at least if we're to go by loving laments such as "I Can't Hate You Anymore," "I Do It For You" and the album's title track. With a voice softer than velvet and the body of a WWE Superstar, we're sure Lachey's laughing all the way to the bank — and rumored flame Vanessa Minnillo's apartment.
