Guess what everyone? September is upon us, and that means it’s time for another live events preview from the team at TicketNetwork!

September Events Calendar

I don’t have to tell you the basics about September…like that it’s International Square Dancing Month and National Blueberry Popsicle Month (mmm!). You should also mark your calendars for the release of “The Lion King 3D” on September 16 (if you’re into that sort of thing) and, of course, Taylor Lautner in “Abduction.”

But onto the real point of this article: to prepare you for concerts, sports and theatre events in September! Ready? Ok! Go!


Big 4 Metal Bands: Metal legends Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer & Megadeth are teaming up once again, this time for a mega-concert at Yankee Stadium on September 14. I won't say it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (since they've done this before and might do it again), but it is pretty rare and really awesome.
