Chris Brown F.A.M.E. Tour Dates

Chris Brown just announced his new tour, F.A.M.E., which will start next month.  Brown released an album under the same name in the middle of March.  Joining him on his tour includes T-Pain, Kelly Rowland (formerly of Destiny’s Child) and Tyga.  Presales already began last week, but public onsales started today.

According to Mr. Chris Brown, “”This tour will allow me to paint a picture musically. I want to bring a lot of energy and excitement to all the fans. It’s going to be a great show.”  Some of the songs on his album include “She Ain’t You”, a song that samples Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” and “Next to You”, featuring Justin Bieber.  The man sure knows how to surround himself with popular people!

Unfortunately, Chris is also most notoriously famous for his altercation with then girlfriend, Rihanna where he pled guilty to felony assault.   While his career did take a major blow after this incident, a solid core of his fans helped the F.A.M.E.  album sell about 270,000 units, earning Brown his first No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.

Top Weekend Events July 29 – 31st

Hello Wednesday!

First and foremost, did you notice all the country music events on this list?  Holy moly!  8/10 events on the list are for country, every kind of country music too.  Old country, new country, pop country, folk country, it’s all there!  Zac Brown Band makes another appearance on the list with a short absence.  ZBB will be performing at the Cheyenne Frontier Days, an annual event held since 1897.  CFD claims to be one of the largest outdoor rodeo and western celebrations in the world.  The infamous Dolly Parton makes her first appearance on the top weekend events list.  She is one of the most successful country artists, earning her the title of “The Queen of Country Music.”  She has been in a top-five country hit in each of the last five decades and alongside with Reba McEntire, one of the only two country artists has had No.1 singles in each of four consecutive decades.    These are two exceptionally talented ladies!

Mr. Tim McGraw shows up twice on this list.  He’s right up there with the ladies previously mentioned for his legacy.  He has had 11 consecutive albums to debut at the top position on the Billboard album charts and twenty one singles hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.  Mr. McGraw is also a very talented actor, having been in amazing movies like The Blind Side and Country Strong.

Of course, Sir Paul McCartney takes the top spot this weekend, just as I predicted last Wednesday.  This weekend he’s playing at the Cubs home turf of Wrigley Field.

And once again, the Manchester United soccer team is another hot, hot, hot draw for this weekend
