Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao to Meet in the Ring

Mayweather vs Pacquiao

The wait is (nearly) over! Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather have finally agreed to meet up for the long-anticipated bout. The star boxers will enter the ring together on May 2 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

The rumors, speculation, and negotiations have been relatively long-running. The "will they, won't they" reports have been coming out since late 2009. In an entertainment-related industry, that's practically forever. Mostly the negotiations centered around money and drug testing. Basically, who gets the bigger share of the pot and under what conditions should testing occur.

Now all the anticipation has come to fruition. Visit the event page for tickets.

Major Onsales This Weekend: Ed Sheeran, Bob Dylan, and More

Ed Sheeran

The folk-pop sensation is going on his second headlining tour and onsales begin today for cities such as Uncasville, CT; Milwaukee, WI; Hollywood, CA; Tulsa, OK; and Forest Hills, NY.

Jimmy Buffett

Fans from the northern U.S. will particularly enjoy the return of Jimmy Buffett, as that means it's time to think about relaxation and warm days, not shoveling and snowy days. Onsales begin today with more on Tuesday.

Bob Dylan

The legendary singer-songwriter is continuing his Neverending tour with dates in Florida, South Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and more. The tour has 20 stops overall and onsales for it begin today.


Edmonton, Alberta Leads in AC/DC Ticket Sales


It was a big week for rock band AC/DC at Tickets for the band's upcoming Rock or Bust Tour placed in the top spot of the selling artists list for the past week*. One of the tour dates helpful to that achievement was the September show in Edmonton, Alberta, which beat out Chicago to become the leading city in Monday's onsale. Over 20% of tickets sold so far for the tour have been for the Edmonton show.

Edmonton as a city, wasn't the only winner. Alberta also led on a province/state level with more ticket sales than California. That's quite the feat when California is hosting two shows in September compared to Alberta's one show.

Ford Speed Dating Prank


In honor of Valentine's Day, Ford has put out a short video titled "Mustang Speed Dating." In the clip, a few unsuspecting guys go on a blind date with a woman who turns out to be a professional stunt driver. After meeting in a café, the woman asks each man if they want to go somewhere else and offers to drive.

Once in her car, she admits that she doesn't know how to drive stick and maneuvers out of the parking spot in a manner that would make every car enthusiast cringe, but she then takes each guy to a parking lot where she unleashes every single one of the 435 horses the 5.0 liter V8 Stang has to offer. Needless to say, each guy was a bit surprised when the woman they thought barely knew how to drive stick was now ripping donuts through a parking lot. Although the latter half of this video is great, my favorite part is earlier in the clip when one guys tells the woman that he's a ninja.


Time's a Ticking: 4 Artists to See Now Before It's Too Late

4 Artists to See Now Before It Is Too Late

It's a simple fact of life. Someday one of either two things will happen to your favorite artists: 1) They will kick the bucket or 2) They will decide that enough is enough and retire from the music business. It happens to every musician, but for some of them that time is coming sooner rather than later. So here are four artists you may want to think about seeing before it's too late, in no particular order.

Motley Crue

Motley Crue

Normally when someone retires it's because they're entering the final chapter of their life, and they want to live their final years without the stress of work, maybe do some traveling, and spend time with family. That does not appear to be the motivation for Motley Crue's retirement at the end of this year. After all, none of them are particularly old. Mick Mars is the oldest member of the band at 65, but the other three members are in their 50s.
