Top Weekend Events 8/12-14

The weekend is almost here, hooray!  It’s felt like a long week already.

The top half of the list is comprised of nationally recognized top acts.  Kid Rock has been absent from the top weekend event list for a while, but he’s finally making a comeback with a hometown concert.  Katy Perry holds the second spot on the list with her Teenage Dream tour.  Her most recent hit songs “Firework” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” are still blazing on the airways and every talent show that’s on TV right now.  Seriously, her songs have been featured on America’s Got Talent, The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) and others all within the past few weeks.  Her song popularity rivals Lady Gaga.

Britney Spears’ Toronto show was pinged a number of times in this top weekend list.  This is a HOT concert.  Her Femme Fatale show is continuing to draw huge crowds.

Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band (ZBB) seem like they’re the official voices of summer with their great summer songs like “Knee Deep” and “Flip Flop Summer”.  They pretty much scream hanging out around a campfire, drinking beer and hanging out with your friends.

Some of the lesser known names to hit the list include country music artist Jamey Johnson.  He is also the supporting act for Kid Rock’s 2011 Born Free tour and accompanying Rock on a duet or more most of the time.  His most popular song “In Color” peaked at #9 on the Country Music Charts in 2009.   Alison Krauss is a blue-grass-country singer, songwriter and fiddler. She’s currently working on an album with Robert Plant.  She’s been in the music business a long time and has been collecting accolades ever since.

As proof of the increasing popularity of Major League Soccer in the United States, The Columbus Crew makes their first appearance on the list.  The Crew is one of ten charter clubs of MLS, having competed in the league since its inception in 1994.  They have won five major trophies; MLS Cup 2008, the 2004, 2008 and 2009 Supporters’ Shields, and the 2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup

Overall, this should be a very interesting weekend.  Enjoy!

Top Weekend Events July 15 – 17

Yay Wednesday!

Well, the top thing that stood out to me for this weekend is that those Ontario-ans certainly want to get out of the house this weekend.  Three Ontario events made the top events for this weekend, including the Jimmy Buffett show, Vans Warped Tour and the Taylor Swift show.  The Vans Warped Tour in Mississauga has an impressive lineup including 3oh!3, Anti-Flag, Bad Religion, Devil Wears Prada, Flogging Molly, Less Than Jake, Madina Lake, NOFX, A Day to Remember and MANY others.  This is sure to be a really fun concert experience.   Taylor Swift has recovered from her bronchitis last and resumes her Speak Now tour.  Taylor will be playing in Ontario on both Friday and Saturday.  Jimmy Buffett shows up again on this list, unsurprisingly.  His current song with the Zac Brown Band, Knee Deep, is a huge hit on the country music stations at the moment.

Sir Paul McCartney kicks off his five city tour this weekend in the Big Apple.  He plays both Friday and Saturday at Yankee Stadium then moves on to Detroit (Sunday, July 24), Montreal (Tuesday, July 26 and Wednesday July 27), Chicago (Sunday, July 31 and Monday, August 1) then concludes in Cincinnati on Thursday, August 4th.   The former Beatles band mate will be playing all his shows in ballparks.  Should be a great time!

Eddie Vedder returns to his roots and the home of grunge music this weekend for a Seattle show.  The lead singer of Pearl Jam has taken his solo tour on the road and is exceptionally popular.

Brad Paisley, NKOTB and O.A.R. come up again on the top weekend list as they are perpetually popular for summertime concerts.

For your sporting news, the LA Galaxy soccer team will host the Spanish soccer superstars the Real Madrid this weekend.  This is the first time since 2007 that the Galaxy will play at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, as part of the 2011 World Football Challenge.  Of note, Mr. Posh and all around hunk, David Beckham has played for both teams.  This is a rematch of last year’s very exciting match played at the Rose Bowl.
