Further evidence we are living in the weird timeline...

A show called 4192 - An Evening with Pete Rose Live! will be at The Palace September 14. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 8 -- they're $25 and up.

And, yep, that's Pete Rose as in the (in)famous baseball not-Hall of Famer. Blurbage:

Pete will share stories of his past in baseball in this Broadway style theatrical event that captures the golden years of America's pastime. Storytelling, enhanced with visuals, will make the audience laugh as well as be inspired by "Charlie Hustle." Pete Rose is an American icon and, in this show, he tells it all as he takes you inside the game of baseball as no other person can.
Using hi-tech multimedia that creates a game day atmosphere, the stage will be transformed into a field of memories and the audience will be transported to the golden era of baseball, complete with all the trappings of a World Series game including the first pitch, Star-Spangled Banner and of course, introductions.

We can only hope the production will capture the charm of the astroturfed concrete spaceship that was Riverfront Stadium. And maybe it'll feel like you're right there as bets are being placed on games. (But never against the Reds, right.)

Also: Is it possible to get Peter G. Rose involved in this show somehow? We'd kind of like to see them discuss Dutch cookery.

(He's a Cincinnati icon and should be in the Hall of Fame.)

Darci Lynne
The Palace also announced Monday that teen ventriloquist Darci Lynne -- from America's Got Talent -- will be there November 3. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 8 -- they're $29.75.

Because... it's the weird timeline.
