NBA and NHL Playoffs Driving Ticket Sales in May

NBA PlayoffsSpringtime is typically one of the slowest times of the year in terms of ticket sales.   We are still a few months away from the summer concert season, warm baseball games, and the start of both college and NFL football.  However, spring is also the time when both the NHL and NBA are conducting their annual post-season tournaments.  Although both the NBA and NHL are largely struggling to fill their arenas, the playoffs are a different story as fans are eager to gobble up often sold out tickets- especially in major sports markets like Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, and Denver.

The 2012 NBA Playoff have just begun and there has already been some major headlines as teams are vying for the NBA Finals.  The biggest news thus far has been season ending knee injury to reigning MVP Derek Rose.  Without Rose the Chicago Bulls chances for a rematch with the Miami Heat seems unlikely.  With the Bulls less than full strength the Heat seemingly have an easy path through the NBA East.  Here is a look at the 1st round matchups for the 2012 NBA Playoffs.

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.

2010 WWE Hell In A Cell Preview

2010 Hell in a Cell

The Undertaker will once again headline a cast that includes Sheamus, John Cena, CM Punk, Edge, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, and Kane at this years WWE Hell In A Cell.

The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) pay per view event Hell in a Cell is once again generating a lot of buzz. The 2010 version of Hell in a Cell will take place on October 3rd, 2010 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas and will include another all-star lineup.  According to WWE.com, the lineup will include John Cena, The Undertaker, CM Punk, Edge, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, R-Truth, Sheamus, Jack Swagger, Christian, The Big Show, Alberto Del Rio, John Morrison, Kofi Kingston, Matt Hardy, MVP, Rey Mysterio, Michelle McCool, Maryse, Eve, and Gail Kim.

If you are not familiar with Hell in a cell, all wrestling matches during this event will take place inside a roofed steel cage.  The cage actually encompasses both the ring and the ringside area further adding to the drama.  The cage itself is 20 feet high and weighs in at over 5 tons! The cage is also locked and chained to keep other professional wrestlers from interfering with the matches or wrestlers from escaping before the match has been decided.  However, since the birth of Hell in a Cell, several characters have been able to successfully breach the cell’s security.  In the first Cell match in St. Louis in 1997, the door was unlocked to allow the removal of an injured cameraman and allowed Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker to battle outside and on top of the cell.  Also, in Nashville (2002) the door was opened with bolt cutters during the Triple H vs Chris Jericho match to allow medics to reach injured referee Tim White.  Chris Jericho actually ended up getting pinned on top of the cell!

The Main Event for 2010 Hell in a Cell include:

2-on-6 Handicap – Hell In A Cell

D-Generation X (Shawn Michaels & Triple H) vs. The Nexus (Wade Barrett, David Otunga, Michael Tarver, Skip Sheffield, Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel)
