Josh Groban 

Monday, February 14, at Gund Arena.

Our only real complaint with the new school of young neoclassical crooners is that they're so damn conservative in their choice of repertoire. That 23-year-old Josh Groban -- the curly-haired straight guy to Michael Bublé's pompadoured wiseacre -- can sing is beyond question, and in all the morning-show radio interviews we've heard him do, he sounds like a perfect gentleman. But when he's not singing in Italian, doesn't this kid get the urge to belt out stuff other than, you know, Don McLean and David Foster? Josh, go crazy, young man: Tell your handlers you're doing "Bohemian Rhapsody" -- or no more "Il Postino"!
