Top 10 Events This Weekend (12/17 – 12/19)

Well, here it is Wednesday again.  Time to announce the top ten events that are going on this weekend!

The top ten are heavy on the music with pop superstar Justin Bieber and his My World Tour and the incomparable Prince with his 20Ten Tour, both nabbing 4 0f the 10 positions.  Given that Nashville is one of the country music capitals of the world, it shouldn’t be surprising that country legend Mr. Garth Brooks is making quite the splash there.

Football is of course, another exceptionally popular event this time of year.  The Rams vs. Chiefs game is garnering quite a lot of attention.  There is a lot on the line for both the teams as the Chiefs are trying to hang on to their small lead over San Diego by one game in the AFC West and the Rams are momentarily tied with their rival Seattle for first place in the NFC West.

Another exciting football game should be the Vikings vs. Bears game for Monday night football.  The real question with that game is, where are they going to play?  Given that the roof caved in on the Metrodome in Minneapolis under the immense pressure of the snow, the venue is still TBD.

The Giants vs. Eagles game pits the two against each other in a battle to see who will be the division leads. The winner of this game will be in a super position for the playoffs. The loser will still be a contender for the playoffs, but the certainty will be gone.

  1. Prince – Saturday, 12/18/2010 – Madison Square Garden, NY, NY
  2. St. Louis Rams vs. Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 12/19/2010 – St. Louis, MO.

Prince will be performing 5 shows in New York and New Jersey in 2010

The long rumored Welcome 2 America Prince tour was officially announced recently on New York radio station WBLS.  Prince hinted that he would be performing a series of all-star shows this fall at a press conference on October 14th, but up until this point the details have been sketchy at best.  According to WBLS, Prince will kickoff the Welcome to America tour with 3 shows at the Izod Center in East Rutherford New Jersey beginning on December 14 and will play 2 shows at Madison Square Garden on December 19th and 29th.

The 52-year-old Prince of pop music will be the master of ceremonies for these 5 shows that will feature funk, rhythm and blues, and jazz artists such as Maceo Parker, Shelia E., Mint Condition, Janelle Monae, Esperanza Spalding, and Cassandra Wilson.  Prince is also rumored to be playing a custom built solid gold Fender Stratocaster at each show that will be auctioned off to benefit the Harlem Children’s Zoo.

For those of you who have been locked in a basement for the past 20 or so years, Prince (sometimes referred to as “The artist formerly known as Prince”) is one of the most talented and success pop musicians of his era.  Prince has produced 10 platinum albums, 30 top-40 singles, and has sold over 100 million albums throughout his career.  Prince is most famous for his 1984 album Purple Rain which sold 13 million copies and stayed at #1 on the Billboard charts for 24 straight weeks.
