Top Weekend Events August 19-21

Hello Wednesday!

First and foremost, I’d like to extend my condolences to the families affected by the collapsed stage at the Sugarland show at the Indiana State Fair.  You’re in our thoughts!

Not to be totally glossed over, but there do seem to be a few other state fair concerts on the list for this week.  While last week’s concert was surely a tragedy, it was a sad, but extremely rare occurrence.  Train and Lady Antebellum will both be performing at the Iowa and Indiana State Fairs respectively.

Other county music stars will be hitting the stage this weekend with huge fan interest.  Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band are high again on the list with their summery sound.  Ms. Taylor Swift is once again on the list as well with her Speak Now tour which continues and will continue to draw a lot of interest.  Rascal Flatts, while always popular, seems to be getting even more popular these days.

Justin Beiber’s better half, Selena Gomez, takes the top spot for the weekend.   Selena Gomez and The Scene (the rest of her band) recently took home accolades from the RIAA for their song “Who Says” which went platinum.  The girl can sing!  Her days on Disney’s the Wizards of Wavery Place, dating the Bieb as well as her throngs of pre-tween fans can’t hurt either.

Old rivals the Chicago Cubs vs. the St. Louis Cardinals face off again this weekend.  Both teams have die-hard loyal fans, but sadly, the Cardinals have more World Series wins over the Cubbies.

And finally, once again the MLS has made another appearance on the top weekend events list.  The Houston Dynamo Soccer team will take on the Real Salt Lake.  Keep your eye out for MLS games!

Honda Civic Tour

The Honda Civic Tour is an annual concert sponsored, not surprisingly, by the Honda Motor Company.  The tour got its start back in 2001 and have featured many great rock and pop punk bands ever since.  Also, each year, the headlining band gets the privilege of customizing a Honda Civic which is then raffled off.  Past headlining acts have included Everclear, Incubus, New Found Glory and Good Charlotte, Maroon 5, The Black Eyed Peas, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco, and Paramore.  This year, the tour is headlined by Blink-182 and My Chemical Romance.  Supporting those two acts this year are Rancid, Manchester Orchestra, Against Me!, Alkaline Trio, Jimmy Eat World and Matt and Kim.  Blink-182 was also the original headlining act in 2001.

This year’s tour kicked off this past weekend, on August 5th in Holmdel, NJ and concludes October 15th in Chula Vista, CA.
