The trend for this weekend is Country Music!! In particular interest are the Jason Aldean shows. I can’t begin to say how many queries I’ve fielded about these two particular shows specifically. This man’s shows are hot! Fans are anxious to get their hands on tickets, ideally, lawn seats.
The American Idol shows also have a heavy fan following. Past season’s winner country music singer, Scotty McCreary, headlines the show. His other top ten performers; Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Casey Abrams, Stefano Langone, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia.
You should be used to seeing Kenny Chesney, ZBB and Keith Urban on the list by now. American fans want to soak up the last bits of summer while they are able. Country music should continue to be popular into early fall.
The Licking River Festival is a weekend of Americana/roots music, food and drinks out in Kentucky which is big with the camping crowd. The Festival will feature Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band and 20 other performers.
Two MLS soccer games made the list this weekend. The Colorado Rapids at the Chicago Fire’s home turf and the Sounders against the Crew. Interesting point of interest; the Sounder’s majority owner is Hollywood producer Joe Roth, and its minority owners are Adrian Hanauer, Paul Allen and Drew Carey. Keep your eye on other MLS soccer games. The MLS season goes through October and the games are usually well priced!
