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.

Top Weekend Events July 15 – 17

Yay Wednesday!

Well, the top thing that stood out to me for this weekend is that those Ontario-ans certainly want to get out of the house this weekend.  Three Ontario events made the top events for this weekend, including the Jimmy Buffett show, Vans Warped Tour and the Taylor Swift show.  The Vans Warped Tour in Mississauga has an impressive lineup including 3oh!3, Anti-Flag, Bad Religion, Devil Wears Prada, Flogging Molly, Less Than Jake, Madina Lake, NOFX, A Day to Remember and MANY others.  This is sure to be a really fun concert experience.   Taylor Swift has recovered from her bronchitis last and resumes her Speak Now tour.  Taylor will be playing in Ontario on both Friday and Saturday.  Jimmy Buffett shows up again on this list, unsurprisingly.  His current song with the Zac Brown Band, Knee Deep, is a huge hit on the country music stations at the moment.

Sir Paul McCartney kicks off his five city tour this weekend in the Big Apple.  He plays both Friday and Saturday at Yankee Stadium then moves on to Detroit (Sunday, July 24), Montreal (Tuesday, July 26 and Wednesday July 27), Chicago (Sunday, July 31 and Monday, August 1) then concludes in Cincinnati on Thursday, August 4th.   The former Beatles band mate will be playing all his shows in ballparks.  Should be a great time!

Eddie Vedder returns to his roots and the home of grunge music this weekend for a Seattle show.  The lead singer of Pearl Jam has taken his solo tour on the road and is exceptionally popular.

Brad Paisley, NKOTB and O.A.R. come up again on the top weekend list as they are perpetually popular for summertime concerts.

For your sporting news, the LA Galaxy soccer team will host the Spanish soccer superstars the Real Madrid this weekend.  This is the first time since 2007 that the Galaxy will play at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, as part of the 2011 World Football Challenge.  Of note, Mr. Posh and all around hunk, David Beckham has played for both teams.  This is a rematch of last year’s very exciting match played at the Rose Bowl.
