It’s Baseball Season!

By Amy | April 6th, 2011

It’s that time of year, when the bats start swinging and the bases start… well, the bases just sit, really. But it’s still a hot time when MLB gets underway! We’ve just updated our team pages with the previews for the year, and we’re as excited as anyone else to see who’s going to come out on top. Will the Anaheim Angels regain their dominion over the AL West? Will the Twins and the Tigers keep their hold on the AL Central? Will the Toronto Blue Jays keep being the team that no one even remembers is *in* the AL East?

So many questions, so many games, so many tickets!

Top sellers for the week

By Amy | March 23rd, 2011

Who’s hot, and who’s not? Well, if they’re hot, they’re at the top of the ticket sales list, and if they’re not… well… then they’re not. And this week, the number one spot among sports, concert and theater events combined is… Wicked! Really, no drum roll was needed there, since Wicked’s held that spot for a very long time now. (Have you seen it yet? If not, why not?)

Following up Wicked is another predictable name, Elton John, followed by Jimmy Buffett, Bob Seger and Celine Dion. Surprised? Shouldn’t be. But what about The Book of Mormon on Broadway? Or War Horse, another Broadway hit?

Well, no matter what’s on the top of your list (or whether it’s on anyone else’s top list), we’ve got the seats you’re looking for at Coast to Coast!

You’ve got three years to catch Celine in Vegas, starting… now.

By Amy | March 2nd, 2011

If you’re like many people, you’ve heard the name Celine Dion for decades – and for good reason. She’s been one of the most easily recognized voices in show business for years. And starting on March 15, 2011, she’s about to kick off her newest run in Las Vegas, with three-year engagement at the Roman Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace – the very same place that was initially built to host her hit show “A New Day” in 2003!

“I’m coming back home to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace,” says Celine, “and I’m very excited about it. With the orchestra and the band we’re going to be able to perform our songs like never before.  The repertoire is going to be extraordinary, a mix of timeless hit songs made famous by some incredible artists, along with all the favorites my fans like to hear me sing.  It’s going to be a very beautiful show and I think we’ll be raising the bar higher than we’ve ever done before.  There’ll be some truly wonderful moments.  I can’t wait!”

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!

Newest members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

By Amy | December 15th, 2010

This morning, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation has announced their newest inductees into the acclaimed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Alice Cooper Band
Neil Diamond
Dr. John
Darlene Love
Tom Waits

Each inductee was chosen by more than 500 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, and became eligible for the recognition 25 years after the release of their first recording. President and CEO Joel Peresman said today of the five newest members, “They truly represent the variety of people that have defined and continue to influence music and the business of Rock and Roll.”

What do you think? Did the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation get it right? Myriad voices on twitter seem to think Jon Bon Jovi was deserving of the spot, but it would seem the voters spoke otherwise. Maybe next year? Regardless, a big congratulations to the newest artists on the list!
