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.

Top Weekend Events June 3rd – 5th

Can you believe it’s actually Wednesday again?  Memorial Day Weekend just absolutely blew by.

If you look at this upcoming weekend’s top events list, one thing is very apparent.  Summer concert season is upon us!  People want to go hear live music!

With the exception of the Memorial Golf Tournament (which was also on last week’s list), the musical genre runs from pop to country to jam bands to alternative.  People want it all!

Brett Dennen is an up and coming folk/pop singer from Northern Cali.  His music has been featured on a number of television shows including: Roadtrip Nation on PBS, Grey’s Anatomy, House, Scrubs and The Unit.  His fourth album was just released in April.  Keep an eye on this guy, his celebrity is about to sky rocket.

For your other fairly new artist on the list, there is The Script and Adele.  The Script will be playing in Central Park this weekend and already has an exceptionally loyal fan base.   They are an Irish indie rock band.  Their music has been featured on video games and TV shows like 90210, Ghost Whisperer, The Hills, East Enders and The Vampire Diaries.  All of those shows are incredibly popular with the teen/early 20’s crowd.  And, as if you didn’t already know, Adele tickets are hot, hot hot!!!  Any remaining available tickets to her shows shoot up in price very quickly.  Her rise in fame in the US is correlated very closely with her 2008 appearance on Saturday Night Live.  She had already attracted much attention in her home nation of Britan. She has gained much acclaim and recognition both commercially and critically.  She is another to keep your eye on very closely.

Fan’s perennial favorites; U2, Phish, and Kenny Chesney show up again on this list as they so often have in the past.

New Kids on the Block featuring Back Street Boys (NKOTBBSB) finally makes their first appearance on this list with their Boston show.  The 80’s boy band teamed up with the 90’s boy band in a cross country, many stop tour that is very popular with ladies of those generations.  Tickets can still be found for reasonable prices.
