Top Weekend Events August 26 – 28

Happy Hump Day to you!

The trend for this weekend is Country Music!!  In particular interest are the Jason Aldean shows.  I can’t begin to say how many queries I’ve fielded about these two particular shows specifically.  This man’s shows are hot!  Fans are anxious to get their hands on tickets, ideally, lawn seats.

The American Idol shows also have a heavy fan following.  Past season’s winner country music singer, Scotty McCreary, headlines the show. His other top ten performers; Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Casey Abrams, Stefano Langone, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia.

You should be used to seeing Kenny Chesney, ZBB and Keith Urban on the list by now.  American fans want to soak up the last bits of summer while they are able.  Country music should continue to be popular into early fall.

The Licking River Festival is a weekend of Americana/roots music,  food and drinks out in Kentucky which is big with the camping crowd.  The Festival will feature Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band and 20 other performers.

Two MLS soccer games made the list this weekend.  The Colorado Rapids at the Chicago Fire’s home turf and the Sounders against the Crew.  Interesting point of interest; the Sounder’s majority owner is Hollywood producer Joe Roth, and its minority owners are Adrian Hanauer, Paul Allen and Drew Carey. Keep your eye on other MLS soccer games.  The MLS season goes through October and the games are usually well priced!

Honda Civic Tour

The Honda Civic Tour is an annual concert sponsored, not surprisingly, by the Honda Motor Company.  The tour got its start back in 2001 and have featured many great rock and pop punk bands ever since.  Also, each year, the headlining band gets the privilege of customizing a Honda Civic which is then raffled off.  Past headlining acts have included Everclear, Incubus, New Found Glory and Good Charlotte, Maroon 5, The Black Eyed Peas, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco, and Paramore.  This year, the tour is headlined by Blink-182 and My Chemical Romance.  Supporting those two acts this year are Rancid, Manchester Orchestra, Against Me!, Alkaline Trio, Jimmy Eat World and Matt and Kim.  Blink-182 was also the original headlining act in 2001.

This year’s tour kicked off this past weekend, on August 5th in Holmdel, NJ and concludes October 15th in Chula Vista, CA.
