Top Events Week 5, 2012

Jeff Dunham Shows 2012Have any exciting plans this week?  If not, you might want to check your calender as we have another week filled with some top notch entertainment.  Although football  is on hiatus for a few weeks until Super Bowl XLVI takes place, there is still plenty of concert, theater, and sporting events to tickle just about anyone’s fancy.

Tops on the list this week is comedian Jeff Dunham’s show on Thursday night January 26th and the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Jeff Dunham is one of the highest grossing comedians currently performing- only Jerry Seinfeld has earned more since 2008.  Dunham is largely responsible for bringing back the art of ventriloquism (think fellow ventriloquist and Las Vegas staple Terry Fator).

The rest of the top 10 is filled with country music and sports which is no surprise to our regular readers.  So without further delay, here are the top 10 events this week!

Top Events 2012 Week 2 (1/23/2012 to 1/29/2012)

1.  Jeff Dunham 1/26/2012 New Orleans Arena, New Orleans, LA

Ventriloquism is alive and well thanks to funny man Jeff Dunham.  His show this week is New Orleans is one of the toughest tickets around!

2.  Bill Cosby 1/28/2012 Hult Center for the Performing Arts, Eugene, OR

Although Bill Cosby has been out of the spotlight for quite some time, he is still as popular as ever thanks to syndicated cable television.  Oregon is becoming quite the hub of comedy!

3.  Rascal Flatts 1/27/2012 Dunkin Donuts Center – Providence, RI

Country music icons Rascal Flatts are still selling plenty of tickets despite the fact that they are seemingly always on tour.  There most recent “Thaw out 2012″ is one of the hghest grossing of 2012 thus far.

4.  Miranda Lambert 1/27/2012 John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, VA

Miranda Lambert has been a frequent visitor to the top events this week.  While I can’t say  I love listening to her music, I can say she is pleasing on the eyes.

5.  LSU vs Kentucky Basketball 1/29/2012 Baton Rougue, LA

The LSU Tigers will get a crack at the #1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats.  Although LSU is not particularly good this season sitting at 12-7, the Pete Maravich Assembly Center will be rocking for this SEC match-up.

6.  AMA Supercross 1/28/2012 Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, Oakland, CA

The AMA Supercross is certainly becoming more and more popular by the day and is certainly one of the most underrated events in the event ticket market.

7.  Brad Paisley 1/27/2012 Maverik Center, Salt Lake, UT

Country music legend Brad Paisley is kicking strong with his 2012 Camobunga tour.  His show in Salt Lake is generating quite a bit of buzz and we are seeing large volumes of tickets trading hands.

8.  Monster Jam 1/28/2012 Florida Citrus Bowl, Orlando, FL

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday….errr  Saturday, Saturday, Saturday…the Monster Truck Jam is coming to Orlando.

9.  Mexico Vs. Venezuela Soccer 1/25/2012 Reliant Stadium, Houston, TX

Although I think watching soccer is about as much fun as watching paint dry, it sure seems to finally be catching on in the U.S.  International soccer matches such as this have been selling out large venues like Reliant Stadium for the past few years.

10.  Duke vs Maryland Basketball 1/25/2012 Durham, NC

The Duke Blue Devil – Maryland Terp rivalry is alive and well.  Tickets to Duke games are always tough to get and extremely expensive.

Top Weekend Events Septemeber 23 – 25

Hooray Wednesday!

I’m going to go ahead and call it that the summer concert season is officially dead.  In its place, officially, is College Football!

There are certainly some exciting games this weekend!  The top game everyone seems to want to attend is the West Virginia vs. Louisiana State game.  These two teams are competitively matched.  LSU has an absolute top notch defense, but the Mountaineer’s quarterback, Geno Smith, is a formidable opponent.

The Fight Irish vs. Panthers game is surely another tough call on who would win.  Pitt’s offense and defense have a good balance, but is it enough to show up Notre Dame?

Colorado is expected to sweep Ohio State, particularly with their star QB, Tyler Hansen, and RB Rodney Stewart.

Boise State is certainly another team to keep a keen eye on.  Since the Broncos near slaughter of the Georgia Bulldogs at the start of the season, they’re on a fast track in the national title race.   QB, Kellen Moore, is one of the best and most effectual quarterbacks currently playing in the NCAA and is expected to shatter multiple records, including most touchdowns and most wins.

For your non-football related activities this week, the hot one is definitely the 3-day i Heart Radio Festival in Las Vegas.  The festival will feature top acts like LADY GAGA ,  JAY-Z , COLDPLAY , STEVEN TYLER, THE BLACK EYED PEAS,  KENNY CHESNEY, ALICIA KEY,  JENNIFER LOPEZ, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, JANE’S ADDICTION, NICKI MINAJ , DAVID GUETTA, RASCAL FLATTS, BRUNO MARS, KELLY CLARKSON, SUBLIME WITH ROME With special guest performances by USHER, STING and JEFF BECK.  It is one FULL line-up!!

Jeff Dunham is in the same field as Terry Fator.  They are both master ventriloquistsTime Magazine wrote about his puppet characters, “All of them are politically incorrect, gratuitously insulting and ill tempered.”
