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.
