Idina Menzel bringing tour to South Florida

Idina Menzel, who has crossed over from the Broadway stage to the Billboard charts, is still surprised that she’s able to sell concert tickets like a proper pop star. Menzel, 44, just kicked off a North American tour Tuesday; she’ll play almost 40 shows, including a stop in Boca Raton at Mizner Park Amphitheatre July 26 (Ticketmaster). “It’s amazing to go into new territories and have people buy tickets to your show that you never knew in a million years would know your name,” Menzel said in a recent AP interview. The tour will feature music from her career, including songs from Broadway shows like Wicked and If/Then and the animated hit Frozen, which includes the Oscar- and Grammy-winning song Let It Go, which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Menzel will also perform songs from her lesser-known pop albums. “I’m even doing a couple things from albums that I did earlier … I’m like, ‘You know what, I’m going to do that song now!’ ” she said.
