Josh Groban: Even though he’s co-starring as a detective in the new Netflix series “The Good Cop,” Groban hasn’t abandoned his music career. The adult-pop star with classical chops, Broadway credits and plenty of personality is on tour promoting “Bridges.” His eighth album features winning pop duets with Jennifer Nettles and Sarah McLachlan plus an over-the-top operatic battle with Andrea Bocelli. In concert, look for Groban to be accompanied for several songs by the Twin Cities own choir VocalEssence and duet with Idina Menzel, who will open with her own Broadway and film hits. (8 p.m. Fri. Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, $55.50 and up, ticketmaster.com)
