Fans of professional sports, particularly hockey were left with a sour taste in their mouth this week, after the NHL made a very disappointing announcement for fans. After many expected that the NHL would truly return in the beginning of November and with games slated for November 1st, the NHL recently announced that they would be canceling even more games in the season. Currently the entire schedule for the month of November has been cancelled until further notice.
While sports fans may be reeling from this recent, announcement there is plenty in the world of entertainment to keep those around the country entertained until the return of hockey. Unfortunately, for many of those living on the East coast, looking to attend Broadway performances, many of the shows in New York have been cancelled through the 31st of October or until further notice due to the effects of hurricane Sandy and the many without power. However, once Broadway productions do start resuming as normal, fans looking to get into the holiday spirit can enjoy special performances of the live adaptation of “A Christmas Story” for which dates have officially been announced. The production will begin next week on November 5th and run through December 30th of 2012. Tickets are now officially on sale.
After her wildly successful release of her album RED, Taylor Swift made an announcement this week revealing she will be taking the road early next year to support her fourth studio album. The country crooner also announced the locations for this tour which will kick off in Omaha, Nebraska on March 13th, 2012. Tickets for the first half of the newly announced tour will be going on sale on November 18th. Taylor Swift’s concerts are notorious for selling out quickly, so interested fans will want to take this into account when planning to buy tickets.
While the announcement of Taylor Swift was a huge surprise to fans, last weeks announcement from Maroon 5, regarding their own 2013 tour, proved to live up to the hype. After a week of sales, Maroon 5 was at the top of the ticket event ranking sales, proving that the concert series truly was as highly anticipated as many made it out to be. Those who are looking to get in on the Maroon 5 action can still get tickets to most of the events on the tour, but will want to act fast, as this event is already selling records for rapid ticket sales.
