Top Weekend Events – June 24 – 26

Woo hoo, the weekend is almost upon us!
This Saturday appears to be the most popular day to get out and go see some shows or sporting events. Fans want to get out of the house and enjoy great summertime activities!
I think there is a tie between the top two events this weekend. The CONCACAF Men’s Finals Soccer Gold Cup Event is going on this Saturday in beautiful Pasadena. The competitors in the Finals will be decided in the Semifinals, which are happening today in Washington D.C. and East Rutherford, NJ. The teams competing today are United States vs. Panama and Honduras vs. Mexico. Those are all teams with exceptionally loyal fans, particularly Mexico. This will be a hot event.
The other hot event on the weekend is the Taylor Swift show happening in Boston. This particular event was flagged multiple times in the top weekend events list. She is also playing at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, June 26th. Taylor’s next few stops land her in Greensboro, NC, Knoxville, TN and Louisville, KY.
Also of note, Mr. Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, has two weekend shows making the list. His most recent album, Ukulele Songs, with a live DVD named Water on the Road, was released on May 31st of this year. These two shows are part of his month-long tour which started on June 15th and will conclude on July 15th at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall. Glen Hansard from The Swell Season and The Frames joins him on his brief tour.
Vans Warped Tour is making many stops across the US. The Dallas show seems to be particularly popular. The Dallas event features the following line up 3OH!3, A Day to Remember, Against Me!, Less Than Jake, Madina Lake, Relient K, Simple Plan, The Devil Wears Prada, Unwritten Law, and MANY others.
Sade is a relatively vintage band from England that formed in 1983. The band is a blend of R&B, soul, jazz, funk and soft rock. Their sixth studio album, Solider of Love, was released on February 8th, 2010. This is their first album of new material in nearly a decade. Sade’s global tour, Sade Live, kicked off in April 2011.
Some baseball finally made the list! I feel it’s been kind of slow season for baseball this year. East meets west with the Oakland A’s traveling to Philadelphia. The Reds and Orioles game, I’m kind of shocked to see on the list, but if there’s apparently a strong interest.
At this rate, Jimmy Buffett and Rascal Flatts are a given on the list. Expect them to remain on the top weekend events list for the remainder of the summer.

Prince will be performing 5 shows in New York and New Jersey in 2010

The long rumored Welcome 2 America Prince tour was officially announced recently on New York radio station WBLS.  Prince hinted that he would be performing a series of all-star shows this fall at a press conference on October 14th, but up until this point the details have been sketchy at best.  According to WBLS, Prince will kickoff the Welcome to America tour with 3 shows at the Izod Center in East Rutherford New Jersey beginning on December 14 and will play 2 shows at Madison Square Garden on December 19th and 29th.

The 52-year-old Prince of pop music will be the master of ceremonies for these 5 shows that will feature funk, rhythm and blues, and jazz artists such as Maceo Parker, Shelia E., Mint Condition, Janelle Monae, Esperanza Spalding, and Cassandra Wilson.  Prince is also rumored to be playing a custom built solid gold Fender Stratocaster at each show that will be auctioned off to benefit the Harlem Children’s Zoo.

For those of you who have been locked in a basement for the past 20 or so years, Prince (sometimes referred to as “The artist formerly known as Prince”) is one of the most talented and success pop musicians of his era.  Prince has produced 10 platinum albums, 30 top-40 singles, and has sold over 100 million albums throughout his career.  Prince is most famous for his 1984 album Purple Rain which sold 13 million copies and stayed at #1 on the Billboard charts for 24 straight weeks.
