Paul McCartney

World-famous music legend Paul McCartney is moving in towards the end of his two-year international tour, “Out There,” which kicked off May 2013 and is on the verge of wrapping up this summer. The former Beatle will be playing a few select U.S. shows, including dates in Philadelphia, Charlottesville, and Columbia. McCartney has also grabbed two major headlining slots for the Dover, Delaware-based Firefly Music Festival, as well as Chicago’s annual festival event, Lollapalooza. In 2013, he headlined the Manchester, Tennessee festival, Bonnaroo, alongside Tom Petty and Jack Johnson.

Even after 58 years of performing and touring the world, Paul McCartney remains in incredibly high demand – both the Firefly Festival as well as his Philadelphia date quickly sold out. The June 21 show at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia actually marks his first concert in the City of Brotherly Love since 2010. According to data culled form the TicketNetwork Exchange, the average Paul McCartney ticket price on the secondary market for his Philly show is going for $326.77, with a get-in price of $184.

By comparison, a four-day festival pass to see Sir Paul and dozens of other top acts (including The Killers, Kings of Leon, Morrissey and Snoop Dogg) averaged $317 – approximately $10 cheaper than Paul’s solo show, which is, of course, limited to just a single evening of music. His additional U.S. dates are equally competitive, regardless of the geography – the average Paul McCartney ticket price for his Charlottesville show sits at $169.12, with a get-in price of $23, and his Columbia, South Carolina show is averaging $198.86 with a get-in cost of $64. Paul will cap off his summer in Chicago at Lollapalooza, where he will share the main stage with artists Metallica, Florence + The Machine, Sam Smith, and Bassnectar. He was last seen playing the festival in 2013, and anticipation is high for his return. A three-day pass for Lollapalooza is currently averaging $451.34 on the secondary market, while the get-in price sits at $307.

Paul McCartney fans will not be disappointed with his performance, as he is still renowned for being one of the few artists who performs for a solid three hours each show – and at age 73, no less. Can his festival-mates say the same?


The year was 1991. Not only was this the first ever CONCACAF Gold Cup, but it also marked the first major title for U.S. soccer. Triumphing 4-3 in a shootout against Honduras, this now-distant-but-historic final is recognized virtually as the birth of international football in the United States.

The year is now 2015 and once again, the CONCACAF Gold Cup returns to U.S. soil as the host of the 13th edition of this tournament. On July 7, there will be two featured matches from Group A to kick off the field play at Toyota Stadium in Dallas, Texas. First, Panama takes on Haiti, before the USA squares off with Honduras in a meeting that will mark the 25th year anniversary of when both clubs squared off against one another for the first-ever Gold Cup Final.


King James and Cavs Looking To Stay Alive In NBA Finals

It ain't bragging when you can back it up, and with Cavaliers superstar LeBron James' otherworldly NBA Finals numbers of 37 points, 12 rebounds and 9 assists, what more is there to say?

And so, even with his team down, 3-2, and on the brink of elimination, who's really going to argue when James boldly declares he's still the best the game has to offer?

Besides, regular-season MVP Stephen Curry and his Golden State Warriors will gladly cede King James that distinction for the right to hoist the franchise's first Larry O'Brien title in more than four decades.

Quicken Loans Arena will be rocking come Tuesday night when the two teams collide before what's almost certain to be an overflow crowd that will be ready to pull out all the stops in aiding the host Cavs in trying to extend the series to a winner take-all Game 7. Game 6 tickets' average prices at the moment are $670.01, with a get-in price of $264*.


US Open

This year’s United States Open Golf Championship will be played at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Washington—making it the first time the tournament has been played in the Pacific Northwest in its history. It will also be the highest-priced US Open on the secondary ticketing market for golf fans wanting to see the best players in the world live and in person.
