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.

Edmonton, Alberta Leads in AC/DC Ticket Sales

ACDC

It was a big week for rock band AC/DC at TicketNetwork.com. 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.
