Chris Cornell kicks off 2011 Songbook Tour

Chris Cornell 2011 TourSoundgarden frontman Chris Cornell is set to begin his fall “SongBook” tour with a sold out show in Memphis Tennessee on Tuesday November 1st.  Cornell just recently wrapped up touring with Soundgarden for the first time in over 10 years and will stay on the road for the second leg of his solo tour.

Chris Cornell is one of the legendary leaders on the 90’s grunge era alternative music.  Not only was he the leader of the immensely popular band Soundgarden but he also was an integral part of Temple of the Dog with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and helped form the super group Audioslave.  In addition to Cornell, Audioslave included Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk.  Cornell has certainly been busy in his 25+ years in the music industry.  In addition to what is mentioned above, Chris has also 3 studio albums, “Euphoria Morning”, “Carry On”, and “Scream”.

Top Events this Weekend April 8 – 10

MLBHello Wednesday!  I’m thrilled to see you.

So, what’s going on in the ticketing world now that the 2011 Mens NCAA Basketball Tournament is over?  If you’re living under a rock, UConn swept the Bulldogs in a rather upsetting fashion.

But, the end of NCAA basketball means the start of baseball, the end of NBA basketball and the spring/summer concert season.  Friday seems to be particularly popular this weekend for events.

Of course opening days for baseball are hot commodities.  The first day of baseball to many people is like New Year’s Day.  Anything is possible.  A totally fresh start.   The White Sox are starting off with a slightly rocky start designated hitter Adam Dunn being taken to the hospital on Tuesday night.  He underwent an emergency appendectomy Tuesday night and will miss at least five games.  Apparently Dunn felt discomfort during Kansas City’s 7-6, 12-inning victory Tuesday.

Neighborly rivals, the Knicks vs. Nets face off on Friday night in New Jersey.  Honestly, this shouldn’t be too much of a game, but the two teams are close in distance.

As for your concert seen, notice the heavy guitar, jam-bandy type sound that is prevalent in the list below.  Kenny Chesney, Rush, Widespread Panic and Stevie Nicks all invoke feelings of summer and carefreeness.   Keep an eye open for festivals and tours such as Coachella and Bonnaroo.

Also, while tickets are usually fairly cheap for AMA Supercross events, do discount them as being unwanted tickets.  Motor bike racing has a surprisingly big following.

So get out there are sell some tickets!

1.)    Chicago White Sox Home Opener , US Cellular Field, Chicago, IL  – 04/08/2011

2.)    Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves – Home Opener – Turner Field, Atlanta, HA – 04/08/2011
