Def Leppard starting new tour this summer

By Amy | February 28th, 2011

The multi-platinum-selling group Def Leppard may have taken a break, but they’re definitely not done. Def Leppard is hitting the tour circuit again this year, complete with their iconic light and laser show, which means big music and even bigger visuals.

Accompanying them will be 70′s and 80′s rock legends Heart, the band responsible for a whole lot of American idol performances (some better than others – thank you Carrie Underwood).

If 80′s glam rock is your thing, bookmark our Def Leppard concert tickets to catch them when they’re in your town – dates start in June of this year!

Bonnaroo’s lineup announced for 2011!

By Amy | February 16th, 2011

Eminem, Arcade Fire, Robert Plant, Loretta Lynn and Big Boi will be some of the names headlining the eagerly awaited music festival in Manchester, Tennessee this June. If you’ve been to one of the country’s biggest music festivals, you know that these can be – well – epic. If you haven’t been yet, there’s just something amazing about spending a weekend in beautiful surroundings, up close and personal with not one or two of your favorite bands, but dozens, all in one place.

If you’re able to get away June 9-12, 2011, THIS is something worth doing! Check here for Bonnaroo tickets >>

Kenny Chesney’s biggest one yet

By Amy | February 11th, 2011

If you’re a Kenny Chesney fan, this has been your year already, as “the hit single “Somewhere With You” celebrates its third week in a row as #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart – and even more impressively, his songs have spent more time at the top of the chart than any other artist in the past eleven years! Kenny’s latest album, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey,’ also debuted at number one on both the Billboard 200 and Country Album charts.

But then again, if you’re a fan, perhaps you already knew all this. But did you also know that he’s added 41 new dates to his upcoming tour, making it his biggest tour ever? Check out the show listing here for dates all the way from March to December, and spanning all corners of the country. We can almost assure you he’s coming *somewhere* near you, so if you’ve been a fan, this is the year to finally see him live!

A General Update…

By Amy | February 2nd, 2011

So how long has it been since we gave something away to those of you who follow our blog, twitter, newsletter and Facebook feeds? We know, we know. Clearly too long. There’s a new opportunity in the works, though, along the same lines as the Scavenger Hunt we did last August, so watch for more news on that!

Also – we posted this on Facebook, but it bears repeating here as well: If you’re holding tickets for an event that’s been impacted by the recent snowstorms in much of the country, do NOT throw those tickets away! You may need them to obtain refunds, and if the show is rescheduled, you’ll almost certainly need those tickets to get in to the new show.
