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 22 – 24

Yay, the weekend is almost here!!

Is it as hot where you are as it is in the Midwest?  Ugh, it is blistering here.  On this top weekend list, I am seeing a lot of outdoor events.  Stay cool, everyone!

Well, the hot, hot, hot event of this weekend is the soccer match between England’s Manchester United and the Chicago Fire.  This particular event came up numerous times on the list.  These EU vs. America matches are sponsored in conjunction with the MLS and CAA Sports.  Manchester United is one ot the world’s most recognized clubs, winning 18 English Premier League Titles, four Carling Cups, three European Cups and an amazing 11 FA Cups.  Manchester United was also in Chicago last year, training at the Fire’s soccer-specific home (Toyota Park) then commencing on its four-stop North American Tour in 2010.

Sir Paul McCartney is another hot event, once again, this weekend.  This time he’s taking on the Tiger’s Comerica Park in Detroit.  Expect his remaining concerts in Chicago, Montreal and Cincinnati to also score big on the top weekend list for their respective weekends.

In the Pop music genre, Katy Perry and her Teenage Dreams tour is hot in Boise, ID.  There are usually too many large concerts that roll through Idaho, so I’m sure this is a big deal in their community.  Rihanna and her Loud tour finally made it to the list.  Her recent songs “S&M” and “California King Bed” are rapidly achieved top positions on the Billboard Hot 100 list.  She’s recently come under much scrutiny for her comments and recent relinking with former flame, Chris Brown, which ended disastrously.

The ladies of country and folk music have overthrown the menfolk this week.  Jennifer Nettles, Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum and Amy Ray and Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls prove that they’re just as popular in this genre as their male counterparts who have been making the top weekend list all summer long.

Even a couple rock bands are making the list.  Founded in 2009, Further is a band composed of former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh.  The band also includes former members of other bands including Dark Star Orchestra, RatDog, Benevoto/Russo Duo and until recently Primus.  A Perfect Circle is another Rock supergroup started in 1999.  The current line-up includes former members from Puscifer, Ashes Divide, The Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Devo and the Vandals.  A Perfect Circle will also be playing at Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Baseball Stadiums Open Doors for Top 2010 Summer Events

Nothing epitomizes summer more than catching a local baseball game at the ballpark or attending one of the many outdoor music festivals or concerts. However, what is becoming even more popular is melding these two summerime activities. More and more professional baseball teams are opening up their stadiums to host concerts, other sporting events, and even boxing. One of these shows that is generating a lot of buzz is the upcoming Jay Z and Eminem concert that will take place at Yankee Stadium in New York and Comerica Park in Detroit. Tickets haven’t even officially gone on sale but many tickets are already available on the market thanks to some recent presales. Boxing will also return to the Bronx as Yankee Stadium will also host the BIG Miguel Cotto vs Yuri Foreman fight this Saturday June 5th. But it doesn’t stop there- Yankee Stadium will also host the Notre Dame vs Army Football Game. If you live in the Bronx or will be traveling there anytime in 2010 you might want to check out some of the great prices on tickets we have at Free Ticket Classifieds.

Also generating a lot of interest is the anticipated Dave Matthews Band Concert at Wrigley Field. Wrigley Field has been home to sold out Jimmy Buffett, Elton John and Billy Joel concerts, and even the 2009 NHL Winter Classic in recent years and legions of DMB fans will be surely migrating to Wrigleyville this September for this highly anticipated concert. In addition to the DMB concert Wrigley Field will also host a college football game between Northwestern and Illinois this fall. The Northwestern vs Illinois Wrigley Field game will be on November 20th and will be the first football game at Wrigley Field in decades! Other hot baseball stadium summer concerts include the Eagles, Dixie Chicks, and Keith Urban playing at Citizens Bank Ballpark in Philadelphia on June 14thand the Aerosmith concert at Fenway Park on August 14th in Boston.
