April 2013 Events Image

Is it May already? This month, concert festivals really kick it into high gear, and many artists launch their summer tours. The NBA Playoffs are under way, and now that the weather is nicer, it's time for the The Players Championship.

Although no new Broadway shows are opening this month, many will likely flock to see the productions recently nominated for Tony Awards, including Pippin and I'll Eat You Last. Plus, there are plenty of touring shows around the country. So in addition to some May flowers, here are the month's upcoming events in concerts, sports, and theater:

Concerts

The Package Tour: Can't get enough of boy bands? Thankfully, you don't have to, as New Kids on the Block, 98 Degress, and Boyz II Men launch their tour May 28.

Concerts

Coachella: For the first time, the festival will span two weekends, starting April 13 and going through April 22. Top headliners include Radiohead, David Guetta, Florence and the Machine, Gotye, and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

A couple weeks ago I wrote an article exploring how far music festival attendees travel to get to the events. I concluded that ticket buyers mostly come from the state where the festival is held, and tend to come from locales 150 or fewer miles away.

I ended the article wondering if the recession had an effect on the make-up of the attendees. Could it scare away longer-distance music lovers who might travel to the event otherwise? This article attempts to answer that question. Unfortunately, what I found gives few solid conclusions.
