If you've been singing nothing but "Fancy" and "Rude" for the last few weeks, you're in luck: rapper Iggy Azalea will team up with Magic! — no doubt to capitalize on the success of their summer hits — in a fall performance in Rochester, MI. Tickets for the show at Meadow Brook Music Festival on Sept. 12 go on sale Monday. Other concerts on sale this weekend include "Bottoms Up" singer Brantley Gilbert; Jason Mraz, who just released a new album called "Yes!"; and Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull.
But it's undoubtedly the NFL that steals the show this week. With tickets to see the Colts, Seahawks, and Vikings on sale this weekend, we're reminded of that time of year everyone's waiting for: football season. We're just 49 days away from kick-off. Not that we're counting.
When I woke up this morning, I had no idea what an important day that today was. That was until I saw this tweet from ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter:
50 days! I couldn't believe the season was that close. As a football junkie, I wish that the football season went all year long, but alas, it doesn't. So the football shaped hole in my heart has been filling itself with anticipation for the upcoming season. The more I thought about the season that is oh so close, I started thinking about all the things I'm looking forward to this football season. The list was getting long, so I said let's do 50 reasons to look forward to the 2014 season. Here we go:
1. Johnny Football
2. Fantasy Football
3. NFL Red Zone
4. Because 'Merica
5. Bad Lip Reading Videos
6. Finally back to REAL football after watching too much soccer
7. Super Bowl
8. Touchdown Celebrations
9. Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning
10. Excuse to eat more buffalo wings
Garth Brooks is back! It's been 14 years since country singer Garth Brooks officially retired and, although he's performed shows off and on, this time — with his kids all grown up, with a second chance at a career — he's back with plans for new music and a world tour.
The singer announced yesterday that his upcoming world tour will kick off Sept. 4 in Rosemont, IL (near Chicago). He'll be joined by his wife and fellow country singer Trisha Yearwood.
Brooks, who was previously hesitant about wading into the "digital age," is certainly savoring every moment of his long-anticipated return to the music scene. In fact, the hype surrounding Garth Brooks' comeback started back in December when he made an appearance on "Good Morning America." He was supposed to simply be promoting his new album; instead, he sat down with anchor Robin Roberts and confirmed he'd be doing a world tour in 2014.
As more dates/cities are announced, we'll add them below, so be sure to check below and visit the Garth Brooks for more information on tickets!
Celebrating 40 years in music, KISS has announced a Las Vegas residency that runs from Wednesday, Nov. 5 to Sunday, Nov. 23 at The Joint, a venue inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Performances begin at 8 p.m.
It's the first-ever residency for the rock 'n' roll icons, who will perform music that spans their vast four-decade career. In an interview with USA Today, KISS guitarist Paul Stanley spoke of the Vegas shows and said, "Whatever you're used to with KISS, this will pump it up that much more. If KISS is on steroids, this is a double dose."
The residency will likely incorporate some of the elements from the band's current stage setup, which is used during the tour they're co-headling with Def Leppard. But it won't be the same, they said; fans who attend the KISS/Def Leppard tour would still have things to look forward to during the band's Vegas set.
See below for a selection of tour dates and visit the KISS for more information on tickets.
