A blizzard is forecast to hit the Northeastern area of the United States from late Monday to Wednesday. Lots of snow and high winds will make driving very difficult at times on those days. With that in mind, some bands and teams have begun postponing their events.
This list below lists events that have been postponed or cancelled. Keep in mind that the list is by no means an exhaustive list. If you are planning to attend any kind of event in the Northeast on late Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, please check the website for the event, other outreach sources like Twitter and Facebook, and local media for additional news.
On Broadway, Aladdin and The Lion King are CANCELLED for Tuesday, according to the Broadway league's website. You can see other theater updates below.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band, Rush, will be hitting the road in 2015 for their “R40 Live Tour,” which will be in celebration of the band’s 40th anniversary. The tour, which you can find tickets for here, will kick off on May 8th in Tulsa, Oklahoma and wrap up on August 1st in Los Angeles after making stops in 35 cities across the United States and Canada.
While the set list has yet to be announced, it has been confirmed they will be performing popular songs from throughout the band's career since this tour isn’t in support of a single album. This means concertgoers are sure to hear classics such as “The Spirit of Radio,” “Fly By Night,” and “Tom Sawyer.”

Looks like New England has some explaining to do. After the Indianapolis sideline got a hold of a New England football after it was intercepted by D’Qwell Jackson during Sunday's game, they noticed it was a little softer than usual. Fast forward a few days, and the NFL is currently in the midst of an investigation about the matter. So far, they have released a statement saying 11 out of the Patriots 12 footballs were under-inflated by 2 pounds per square inch. While we wait for the investigation to wrap up (which will be any day) and find out if New England will be punished or not, many of us wonder what the advantage of a slightly deflated football was. Experts seem to agree that since a deflated football is softer than a properly inflated one, it is easier to grip, thus creating multiple advantages. Although it’s still unclear if the footballs were deflated on purpose, I have to agree with Indianapolis tight end Dwayne Allen on this one, who said, “They could have played with bars of soap for balls and beat us.” The fact of the matter is that New England’s defense (who did not have an advantage by their offense using deflated footballs) only gave up seven points against Indianapolis. Since New England averaged 29.3 points per game during the 2014 regular season, the chances of them beating Indianapolis even if their footballs had been properly inflated was still extremely high.
Grammy nominated rapper Wiz Khalifa and band Fall Out Boy will be teaming up this summer for a co-headlining tour. The “Boys of Zummer” tour will be in support of their latest albums; Fall Out Boy’s “American Beauty/American Psycho,” which was released on January 20th and Wiz Khalifa’s “Blacc Hollywood,” which hit shelves this past August. The tour will kick off on June 10th in Camden, NJ and will wrap up on August 10th in Los Angeles, CA after more than 35 performances across the country, including one show in Toronto, Ontario.
This is the first time the rapper and band will be touring together, which means each show is sure to provide a unique experience for concertgoers since rap-rock shows are a rarity. You can be sure the artists will perform hit songs, such as Fall Out Boy’s “Centuries” and Wiz’s “We Dem Boyz,” and who knows, maybe we’ll see them collaborate on a few songs. Also, touring with them will be up-and-coming Long Island rapper, Hoodie Allen, who will perform as their opening act.
