First and foremost, I’d like to extend my condolences to the families affected by the collapsed stage at the Sugarland show at the Indiana State Fair. You’re in our thoughts!
Not to be totally glossed over, but there do seem to be a few other state fair concerts on the list for this week. While last week’s concert was surely a tragedy, it was a sad, but extremely rare occurrence. Train and Lady Antebellum will both be performing at the Iowa and Indiana State Fairs respectively.
Other county music stars will be hitting the stage this weekend with huge fan interest. Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band are high again on the list with their summery sound. Ms. Taylor Swift is once again on the list as well with her Speak Now tour which continues and will continue to draw a lot of interest. Rascal Flatts, while always popular, seems to be getting even more popular these days.
Justin Beiber’s better half, Selena Gomez, takes the top spot for the weekend. Selena Gomez and The Scene (the rest of her band) recently took home accolades from the RIAA for their song “Who Says” which went platinum. The girl can sing! Her days on Disney’s the Wizards of Wavery Place, dating the Bieb as well as her throngs of pre-tween fans can’t hurt either.
Old rivals the Chicago Cubs vs. the St. Louis Cardinals face off again this weekend. Both teams have die-hard loyal fans, but sadly, the Cardinals have more World Series wins over the Cubbies.
And finally, once again the MLS has made another appearance on the top weekend events list. The Houston Dynamo Soccer team will take on the Real Salt Lake. Keep your eye out for MLS games!
