April 2013 Events Image

In the concert world, April marks the beginnings of festival season, which lasts all summer long. Crossroads Guitar Festival is a great opportunity for music buffs to commemorate the fun summer of music ahead.

Meanwhile, in sports, the MLB seasons starts! April is also big for theater, and most of Broadway's plays will be opening this month — including (finally) Tom Hanks in his role as Mike McAlary.

While we may not be looking forward to the April showers, we're totally looking forward to the warmer weather, as well as these upcoming events in concerts, sports, and theater:

Concerts

Dave Matthews Band: Though the band toured frequently in the '90s, DMB hasn't toured since 2011. Now they're back with a tour that begins April 6 in Alabama; just a few weeks later, on April 28, they'll headline the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

December 2012 Events Image

As the days in November wound down, there was one thing that I kept hearing people say, "I can't believe its almost December already." Well, you can eliminate the "almost" from that statement because December is here with all the cold weather and holiday cheer you can handle.

For a lot of us, December also marks one of the busiest times of the entire year between holiday shopping, visiting family, decorating... well, you get the idea. So, if you are looking for something fun to do in between all the holiday chaos, here are some of the top events that are coming up in this month:

Concerts

The Rolling Stones: The aging rockers celebrate their 50th anniversary with three shows, including December 8 in Brooklyn and December 13 and 15 in Newark.

November Events Image

It sure doesn't feel like the end of October, does it? We here in southern New England are getting back into the swing of things after Hurricane Sandy flew through yesterday. Meanwhile, our friends in southern New York and the New Jersey coast are dealing with the aftermath, trying to piece things back together (and get the subways running again).

With that reality, it is possible that some of the productions in the theater section below may change their opening dates or have one or more nights go dark, depending on how fast everything in the city can get fixed. Be sure to check the Broadway Leauge's website for updates.

Concerts

The Who: Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, and the band are heading to the stage for their first full-scale tour since 2007, playing their classic album Quadrophenia.

Trans-Sbierian Orchestra: The rock opera band is back for its annual holiday tour. Two national tours begin on November 15 and run until December 30.

View Tickets »

Paul McCartney: The rocker will visit North America for several dates in November, beginning with a stop in St. Louis on the 11th.

Other Concerts in October:

  • The Dave Matthews Band begins their 2012 Winter Tour on November 30.
  • Aerosmith is beginning the second leg of their Global Warming Tour on November 8. Cheap Trick will join up for all shows. The tour will end on December 13.
  • 3 Doors Down and Daughtry are going on tour beginning November 18. P.O.D. will also join the two headliners for all but a few select dates.
