With the week of Christmas celebrations ahead the official Christmas week kicked off with a blast with several big announcements in the entertainment world. However for most people this week is all about seeing Christmas-themed shows, music and events. Although the NHL season is currently suspended indefinitely, there will be plenty of NFL action on Christmas Eve with Monday Night football. The NBA will also be partaking in the holiday celebrations with several games taking place on Christmas day. This includes a highly anticipated match up between the new Brooklyn Nets as they take on the highly rated Boston Celtics on Christmas Day. Tickets for these games are still on sale and available for those looking to get in on all of the holiday action.

However, this week in entertainment isn’t only about big Christmas sports events, it is also all about the holiday themed celebrations. This of course includes the Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas production at Madison Square Garden. This is a live entertainment event unlike any other that is sure to fill the seats of the massive venue each and every night. Tickets are available to the event now and will be one sale through December 30th.

Weekend Update

While the upcoming Christmas season is bringing a number of new special holiday shows, recent events around the country have also resulted in the cancellation of many live entertainment performances. Some of the most notable cancellations in the entertainment world have come as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Broadway sales have been drastically impacted by the hurricane and caused many shows to get record low ticket sales.

One of the biggest cancellations came from the professional sports world. The new Brooklyn Nets, formerly the New Jersey Nets, were forced to cancel their first home game of the season, which was also their official opening of the Barclays Center. This highly anticipated opening was scheduled to be a big moment for the team and the city as they welcomed the new Barclays center into the Brooklyn area. However, the Thursday season opener was cancelled and fans will be able to get tickets to a makeup game later in the season. The NBA of course isn’t the only league canceling games, the NHL recently announced that they have still been unable to reach an agreement and that games throughout the month of November are officially cancelled and that fans will have to wait until at least December to see their favorite teams take the ice.
