April 2013 Events Image

Is it May already? This month, concert festivals really kick it into high gear, and many artists launch their summer tours. The NBA Playoffs are under way, and now that the weather is nicer, it's time for the The Players Championship.

Although no new Broadway shows are opening this month, many will likely flock to see the productions recently nominated for Tony Awards, including Pippin and I'll Eat You Last. Plus, there are plenty of touring shows around the country. So in addition to some May flowers, here are the month's upcoming events in concerts, sports, and theater:


The Package Tour: Can't get enough of boy bands? Thankfully, you don't have to, as New Kids on the Block, 98 Degress, and Boyz II Men launch their tour May 28.

Pippin: Although it's only been open for five days, Pippin was among the most prolific when the Tony nominations were announced earlier today. Because of that, this reprisal, which shares the tale of the first Holy Roman Emperor to the tune of pop-rock music, will likely draw a big crowd.
