So You Think You Can Fly

By Amy | June 24th, 2010

Fans of the hit dancing show “So You Think You Can Dance” might remember an amazing guest dance troupe performing on last week’s results show. You probably marveled at the artistry, but did you make a note of what that performance was from? We did! (Or we wouldn’t be writing about it now.)

The routine was “That’s Life” from the hit Broadway musical “Come Fly Away,” danced by Tony award nominees Karine Plantadit and Keith Roberts. The musical itself is phenomenal, featuring the smooth tunes of Frank Sinatra, and paired with the acclaimed choreography of Twyla Tharp (of “Movin’ Out” fame.)

The show is big, it’s romantic, it’s star-studded and filled with the undeniable energy of big band and swing. Don’t miss it – and don’t settle for second-rate seats! Coast to Coast has Come Fly Away tickets for shows currently through 2011.

Who is Chelsea Handler?

By Amy | June 24th, 2010

With so many late-night entertainment shows to choose from, it’s easy to think they’re all the same. But fans of Chelsea Handler know that she’s the real deal – smart, sassy, and sarcastic, and anything but a one-trick pony. Her talk show, “Chelsea Lately,” provides a hilarious and refreshing look at celebrity culture, and as the highest-rated profgram on the E! television network, it seems she’s here to stay.

In addition to her successful show, she’s also an acclaimed author, with three best-sellers under her belt including Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, and My Horizontal Life. Twitter users know her for her snappy one-liners, and she’s graced the waves of internet TV in the popular MSN online web series “In The Motherhood.”

If this is your first time hearing about Chelsea, you’ve got a lot to catch up on – but luckily for you, she may be coming to your town this summer! Check out our selection of Chelsea Handler tickets here, and with luck you can see her in person and up close!

“We’re All Gonna Die,” says Slash

By Amy | June 24th, 2010

Last time in this spot we talked about U2’s postponed tour. This time, we’re looking at a tour that’s just as legendary, but the news is a while lot better (contrary to what the name of the tour might indicate). Slash, of Guns N’ Roses fame, has been a guitar icon for decades, and this fall, he’s bringing his unique brand of awesome to cities across the US, starting with San Francisco and moving on from there.

This tour will bring to the West Coast and other areas a chance to see Slash supporting what’s being called by many his first true solo project, and the reception since its release has been extremely favorable. Slash is expected to play a mix of old and new, so the concerts should give a well-rounded look at the talent that landed him a recent star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We have the tickets to get you front and center, so keep an eye on our Slash concert tickets page as more tickets are released!

Go-Go’s Farewell Tour Cancelled

By Amy | June 14th, 2010

Looks like fans of the 80’s girl group The Go-Go’s will have to wait to see their final farewell after all, as this summer’s Farewell Tour has been canceled. Change of heart? Band staying together? Nope… unfortunately, Go-Go’s guitarist Jane Wiedlin fell 20 feet during a hike near her home, and will now have to undergo knee surgery on her knee. With a long recovery in front of her, the Go-Go’s are regretfully canceling the tour, and all tickets will be refunded. (If you hold tickets, call us to find out who your contact is, and where you’ll need to send your tickets for the refund!)

According to the girls, they do hope to give their fans a Farewell Tour in the future, but it could be a while. Best of luck to Jane for a speedy recovery!

Watch out for ticket scams!

By Amy | June 8th, 2010

You’ve all heard it a million times… someone buys tickets second-hand and ends up the victim of fraud, holding tickets that are either fake or invalid. It’s a sad story, seen all too often. The guy on Craigslist or the girl standing outside the theater *looked* trustworthy, didn’t they? Problem is, there’s no accountability. Once you pay for the tickets, that person’s gone forever. Can’t report them, can’t reverse credit card charges, nothing.

And that story right there is the reason why we exist. We’re accountable for every sale we make. By choosing tickets from us, you’re buying not only tickets, but peace of mind, since we guarantee every sale. You’ll get what you ordered, in time for the event, and the tickets will be good, or you’ll get your money back – and unlike that guy on Craigslist, you know where to find us. You can call us directly at 1-866-353-5167, or you can email us using the contact form here. Or if social media’s more your thing, you can find us on Facebook and on Twitter!

We stand behind every sale we make, and that’s definitely not something you’ll get buying tickets last-minute on the street. Bookmark us and let us take care of your tickets next time you have a big night planned!

NBA Finals time is here!

By Amy | June 7th, 2010

Basketball fans, the most exciting time of the season is here – the NBA Finals! Just like last year’s Finals, the Los Angeles Lakers will be representing the Western Conference, though the Eastern Conference will be represented by the Boston Celtics – their second trip to the Finals in three years. With the Lakers determined to retain the title, and the Celtics hoping to wrest it away, passions will be running extra high in the 2010 NBA Finals. Though there’s no way of knowing which team will win, it’s a safe bet that this series won’t disappoint, and tickets will be harder than ever to find. Grab your 2010 NBA Finals tickets while they last and experience history in the making!

Not sure whether a game will be played? Just hold onto the tickets and call us for return information, and you’ll receive a refund for unplayed games. You can feel secure buying from Coast to Coast!
