After 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)
- 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.
- 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.

- 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!
