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.
