If you look at this upcoming weekend’s top events list, one thing is very apparent. Summer concert season is upon us! People want to go hear live music!
With the exception of the Memorial Golf Tournament (which was also on last week’s list), the musical genre runs from pop to country to jam bands to alternative. People want it all!
Brett Dennen is an up and coming folk/pop singer from Northern Cali. His music has been featured on a number of television shows including: Roadtrip Nation on PBS, Grey’s Anatomy, House, Scrubs and The Unit. His fourth album was just released in April. Keep an eye on this guy, his celebrity is about to sky rocket.
For your other fairly new artist on the list, there is The Script and Adele. The Script will be playing in Central Park this weekend and already has an exceptionally loyal fan base. They are an Irish indie rock band. Their music has been featured on video games and TV shows like 90210, Ghost Whisperer, The Hills, East Enders and The Vampire Diaries. All of those shows are incredibly popular with the teen/early 20’s crowd. And, as if you didn’t already know, Adele tickets are hot, hot hot!!! Any remaining available tickets to her shows shoot up in price very quickly. Her rise in fame in the US is correlated very closely with her 2008 appearance on Saturday Night Live. She had already attracted much attention in her home nation of Britan. She has gained much acclaim and recognition both commercially and critically. She is another to keep your eye on very closely.
Fan’s perennial favorites; U2, Phish, and Kenny Chesney show up again on this list as they so often have in the past.
New Kids on the Block featuring Back Street Boys (NKOTBBSB) finally makes their first appearance on this list with their Boston show. The 80’s boy band teamed up with the 90’s boy band in a cross country, many stop tour that is very popular with ladies of those generations. Tickets can still be found for reasonable prices.
