October 2013 Events Image

It's a pretty great time of the year for sports, concerts, and theater, given that each category has a plethora of events to choose from. Big names like Elton John and Kanye West will launch U.S. tours this month, while the NFL season continues on strong (as if there was ever any doubt). On top of that, NBA has its pre-season while MLB heads into its postseason, and several shows — including one about legendary musician Janis Joplin — open on Broadway.


Pink: She opens her latest tour, "The Truth About Love," Oct. 10 in Oakland, CA, which she follows up with several California performances before sweeping through the rest of the U.S.
