Top Weekend Events July 22 – 24

Yay, the weekend is almost here!!

Is it as hot where you are as it is in the Midwest?  Ugh, it is blistering here.  On this top weekend list, I am seeing a lot of outdoor events.  Stay cool, everyone!

Well, the hot, hot, hot event of this weekend is the soccer match between England’s Manchester United and the Chicago Fire.  This particular event came up numerous times on the list.  These EU vs. America matches are sponsored in conjunction with the MLS and CAA Sports.  Manchester United is one ot the world’s most recognized clubs, winning 18 English Premier League Titles, four Carling Cups, three European Cups and an amazing 11 FA Cups.  Manchester United was also in Chicago last year, training at the Fire’s soccer-specific home (Toyota Park) then commencing on its four-stop North American Tour in 2010.

Sir Paul McCartney is another hot event, once again, this weekend.  This time he’s taking on the Tiger’s Comerica Park in Detroit.  Expect his remaining concerts in Chicago, Montreal and Cincinnati to also score big on the top weekend list for their respective weekends.

In the Pop music genre, Katy Perry and her Teenage Dreams tour is hot in Boise, ID.  There are usually too many large concerts that roll through Idaho, so I’m sure this is a big deal in their community.  Rihanna and her Loud tour finally made it to the list.  Her recent songs “S&M” and “California King Bed” are rapidly achieved top positions on the Billboard Hot 100 list.  She’s recently come under much scrutiny for her comments and recent relinking with former flame, Chris Brown, which ended disastrously.

The ladies of country and folk music have overthrown the menfolk this week.  Jennifer Nettles, Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum and Amy Ray and Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls prove that they’re just as popular in this genre as their male counterparts who have been making the top weekend list all summer long.

Even a couple rock bands are making the list.  Founded in 2009, Further is a band composed of former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh.  The band also includes former members of other bands including Dark Star Orchestra, RatDog, Benevoto/Russo Duo and until recently Primus.  A Perfect Circle is another Rock supergroup started in 1999.  The current line-up includes former members from Puscifer, Ashes Divide, The Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Devo and the Vandals.  A Perfect Circle will also be playing at Lollapalooza in Chicago.
