Singer Josh Groban, who canceled an Oct. 21 performance at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans and also that show’s Oct. 22 makeup date, is scheduled to perform Friday, July 15, in Champions Square.

Groban’s 20-city tour summer, featuring guest Sarah McLachlan, begins in New Orleans and includes Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Detroit. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Dec. 11 at

Ahead of his summer tour, Groban will appear in a new PBS special based on his latest album, “Stages,” which features songs from Broadway musicals. “Josh Groban: Stages Live” premieres Nov. 28 on PBS stations.

Groban, a singer who bridges the usually separate worlds of pop and classical music, will also make several television appearances in the coming weeks, including “Live! with Kelly and Michael” on Nov. 24, “The Talk” on Dec. 11 and “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on Dec. 14.

Groban released “Stages,” in April. It features orchestrated renditions of songs from “Les Misérables” (“Bring Him Home”); Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Carousel” (“You’ll Never Walk Alone”); Stephen Sondheim’s “Sunday in the Park with George” (“Finishing the Hat”), “Sweeney Todd” (“Not While I’m Around”); “Into the Woods” (“Children Will Listen”); and more music from Broadway.
