December 2013 Events Image

Holiday-themed events prevail in both concerts and theater. Shows like Jingle Ball and Holiday Pops are big names in concerts, while non-holiday shows include Billy Joel, Britney Spears, and Celine Dion.

Theater is relatively quiet in December, as several Broadway shows close. However, two holiday shows, A Christmas Story and Irving Berlin's White Christmas, will open this month. In sports, college bowl games start up at the end of December through 2014, and there are a few Christmas Day basketball games to choose from.


Jingle Ball: Although it seems like a lifetime ago when the Jingle Ball tickets went on sale, the of Jingle Ball jams are finally here! Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Pitbull, Selena Gomez, and Fall Out Boy are some of the performers included at various shows.
