Top Events This Weekend (April 13-15, 2012)

Josh Turner 2012 TourAfter taking a short break we are back to blogging about the top ticketed events happening this weekend.  This weekend we have a nice mix of hot concerts, major league baseball, major league soccer, some comedy, NHL Playoffs, and even a NASCAR race.  Since there are so many noteworthy events happening this weekend we decided to exclude the NHL playoffs from this top 10 list and write a separate article detailing the NHL playoff matchups.  So, here are your top 10 events happening this weekend

Top Events This Weekend (April 13-15, 2012)

  1. Josh Turner 4/13 Savannah, GA – Country crooner Josh Tuner has never been more popular thanks in large part to American Idol Scotty McCreery.  As such, JT’s sold out show in Savannah is the top event this weekend.
  2. The Naked & Famous 4/15 Chicago, IL – The indie rock band from New Zealand is making it big in the US in 2012.  Their show in Chicago is one of the most search for ticket.
  3. Alison Krauss and Union Station 4/14 Baltimore, MD – 2012 certainly seems like the year of country music as another country music act makes the top 10.
  4. NY Yankees vs LA Angels 4/13 New York, NY – The Yankees may be off to a slow start but fans are still excited for the Yanks to kickoff the 2012 season at home against Albert Puljols and the Anaheim Angels.
  5. St. Louis Cardinals vs Chicago Cubs 4/14 St. Louis, MO – It doesn’t get much better than the World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals opening up the 2012 season at home against the rival Chicago Cubs.  Oh wait, it would be better if they hadn’t lost Albert Puljols!
  6. NASCAR Samsung 500 4/14 Fort Worth, TX – Texans love their NASCAR and the Samsung 500 is one of the biggest races each year.
  7. Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays 4/14 Boston, MA – Like the Yankees, the Red Sox might be in for a long year but that is not enough to keep fans from being their as the BoSox break in Fenway Park for the 2012 season.
  8. Daniel Tosh 4/14 Syracuse, NY – Daniel Tosh is probably the hottest comedian around these days.  His sold out show in Syracuse is one mighty tough ticket!
  9. LA Galaxy vs Portland Timbers 4/14 Carson, CA – MLS soccer seems to be growing rapidly and 2 of the more popular teams will be squaring off in Carson this weekend.
  10. Florence And The Machine 4/14 Santa Barbara, CA – Alt rockers Florence and the Machine will be invading the ever-popular Santa Barbara Bowl this weekend.

Top Weekend Events 2/18 – 2/20

It’s Wednesday, it’s Wednesday!  It’s time to find out the most popular events happening this weekend!

This Wednesday’s list is heavy on the music, which is a large departure from Wednesday’s past.  The type of music runs the gamut from country to class rock to pop.  The always intriguing Lady Gaga finally makes her first appearance on the list with her show in New Jersey, her homestate.  By the way, did you see her costume at the Grammys??  What the heck was up with her egg outfit?  I’m sure her outfits will not disappoint at this event either.

Kid Rock has had so much success in every genre of music so far.  He really is a “Horse of a Different Color.”  He goes seamlessly from rock to rap to country to even a little (dare I say?) easy listening.  What should not be expected is a boring show.  The man knows how to perform.

The San Antonio Rodeo had a most impressive line-up of events, 2 of which are showing up on our Wednesday list.  Country stars Josh Turner and Martina McBride are coveted performances to attend and also the last two music events at the SAR.    Some of the other’s that previously performed were  Miranda Lambert, Styx, Clay Walker, Train, Reba McEntire, Bill Engvall, Toby Keith and Lady Antebellum.

Perennial rock favorite, John Mellencamp also makes an appearance on the list with his New York Show at the Radio City Music Hall.  His latest album, No Better Than This, was released on August 17th, 2010 and has been greeted with substantial approval.

Hockey is one of the biggest sports still in regular season at the moment and thus is drawing a lot of attention.  The Heritage Classic taking place in Calgary, Alberta will pit the Calgary Flames vs. the Montreal Canadiens, two extremely good Canadian teams.  This is going to be quite the event! 

The NBA Allstars game also takes place this weekend.  This event matches the best players in the Eastern Conference against the best players in the Western Conference.  The coaches are selected  by looking at which current teams have the most wins in their conference through the Sunday 2-weeks prior the All-Star game.  Some notable players will include Dwayne Wade, Kevin Garnett, Deron Williams, Kevin Love, Derrick Rose and Kobe Bryant.

Two Big 10 teams face on the 19th, OSU vs. Purdue in Indiana.

And the Daytona 500 reigns supreme over the Wednesday Weekend list once again with more exciting racing events!  Be sure to tune in!
