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.

Dave Matthews Band Announces 2015 North American Tour

Concert News image

Summer isn’t complete unless Dave Matthews Band is touring, which is exactly what they’ve just announced they’ll be doing in 2015. The North American tour will run from mid-May through mid-September and will feature almost 50 performances in over 35 cities. The band will be playing multiple shows in a handful of these cities, including, Camden, NJ; Saratoga Springs, NY; Noblesville, IN; West Palm Beach, FL; Englewood, CO, as well as their annual three show stint in Quincy, WA over Labor Day Weekend. Also, the band will perform two shows at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, WI, a venue that was skipped last year to the disappointment of many local fans.

During last summer’s tour, where the average ticket price was $116, they introduced a two set format for the first time. While both sets featured songs spanning the band’s entire 20 year career, set one consisted of acoustic instruments while set two was entirely electric. This summer, the band has decided they will use the same two set format. Also, to keep things interesting, the set list will change from night to night and feature covers of other famous musicians. One of the determining factors for each show’s set list will be the distance from one venue to another. For example, a show 50 miles from the location of their previous show will feature very different music, while a show that is 300 miles from the location of their previous show might feature more of the same songs.

You’d think the band would take a break after their North American tour wraps up, but that’s not the case. Dave Matthews Band will travel to the Middle East and will perform for the first time in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates in October. After, they will travel to Europe and perform in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, France, and the United Kingdom, before wrapping up in Ireland in November.

The answer is simple; the third best-selling boy band (well, full blown adult band) in history, New Kids on the Block will be going on tour beginning in May. The North American tour, titled “The Main Event,” which you can find tickets for here, will also feature rapper Nelly and the surviving members of Grammy Award winning R&B group, TLC.

NKOTB, whose top hits include “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” and “Step by Step,” will begin their tour in Las Vegas on May 1st, and will crisscross the United States and Canada before performing their last show in Buffalo, NY on July 2nd. They, along with Nelly and TLC will be performing music spanning their entire careers, which means fans are sure to hear a wide range of hits from the 80’s to today.

NKOTB has also announced that each show will feature “top notch production elements,” such as a 360-degree stage, which will ensure everyone in the audience will have a clear view of the performers to which so many of them grew up listening. This will be New Kids on the Block’s first tour since 2013 and band member Donnie Wahlberg is confident the tour is sure to be a huge success, saying in a press release, “We wanted to make sure it was something new and fresh and fun and totally worthwhile for all of our supporters year after year. This year, we are making it THE MAIN EVENT. And we promise, it will be THE TICKET of the summer.” - nkotb.com. Time will tell if New Kids on the Block, which was founded over 30 years ago, still has what it takes to make the audience scream like the teenage girls many of them once were.
