Ever since Saint Valentine was executed for illegally wedding couples (too dark?), people have had trouble figuring out what to do with their special someone on February 14. Worry no longer! We’ve got you covered.

Erykah Badu and Thundercat (San Francisco, CA)

The sultry stylings of Ms. Badu are literal perfection for a romantic evening by the bay. Along with the funky bassist and singer, Thundercat, these two will have you cozying up before the night is through. Get yourself out of the friend zone and make them the love of your life in San Fran. Shop tickets

Love Never Dies (Chicago, IL)

The sequel to the legendary and long-running musical The Phantom of the Opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber is exactly where you want to be if you’re dating a Broadway fan. This is the first North American tour of the show, which first got on its legs on the West End in 2010. While it’s an admittedly melodramatic piece, is there a better time for melodrama than February 14? Go get your hearts torn to shreds, and then help each other put them back together again.

Andrea Bocelli (Tampa, FL)

Celebrate your love with the voice of an angel. Andrea Bocelli is in Tampa to sing sweet arias to a stadium of lovebirds. Expect the album Amore to get a lot of love on this Valentine’s Day performance since the pro knows exactly what he’s doing. As Elizabeth Taylor once said of him, “God has kissed this man and I thank God for it.” Shop tickets

Benjamin Clementine (Portland, OR)

This English singer/songwriter/pianist was discovered in Paris as a vagabond who had been living on the streets for four years. After meeting an agent walking home from a performance, he went from Parisian cult figure to international acclaim. Years later, his songs are still filled with poetry and pain that make your knees weak. Take your date and, believe me, they won’t complain. Shop tickets

Diana Krall with Nashville Symphony (Nashville, TN)

How many love-themed albums can one musician have? Love Letters, Only Trust Your Heart, When I Look in Your Eyes, The Look of Love. The list goes on. Diana Krall is one of the premiere jazz vocalists of our time and she’s in Music City this February 14th. Go see the seven-time multi-platinum-selling artist joined by the prolific Nashville Symphony. Shop tickets

Boyz II Men (Niagra Falls, Canada)

Probably the most popular R&B vocal group of all-time, Boyz II Men will bring you and your date the harmony you long for. If by some miracle you haven’t heard of them, know that they’ve spent a collective 50 weeks at the top of the Billboards – fourth place behind Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and Mariah Carey. Hear “I’ll Make Love to You” the way it was meant to be heard, live on Valentine’s Day. And if you haven’t been to Niagra Falls, make a trip out of it and spend the night. Shop tickets

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre (Atlanta, GA)

New York’s (America’s?) most popular dance company is coming to Atlanta on February 14-18 for “A Night to Love.” The group is renowned for its eclectic mixture of dance styles that compose powerful narratives. Whether you are a seasoned fan of dance, a dancer yourself, or entirely new to it, this company has a way of changing the way you view the medium. Let them steal your heart at the Fox Theatre this V-Day. Shop tickets

Gregory Porter (New York, NY)

Our modern day Nat King Cole, jazz vocalist Gregory Porter is coming to New York. If you haven’t heard of him, his Tiny Desk Concert is a great place to start, as is the below Sam Cooke cover for BBC radio. When describing Porter’s voice, it’s difficult not to lean on tropes of liquid and velvet, so I’ll quote the New York Times: “a booming baritone with a gift for earthy refinement and soaring uplift.” Let him move you and your date to tears in the world’s most famous concert hall.
