The sports and music worlds have been dealt a number of treats this week just in time for the holidays, and these big announcements have fans of all types excited for the months ahead. One of these big announcements came from one of the biggest legends to ever enter the music business; this of course is the incomparable Eric Clapton. The legendary musician announced this week that he is planning a major tour for 2013. The tour will kick off on March 14th of 2013 in Phoenix Arizona at the massive US Airways Center and will continue on through the spring. Tickets for the event will go on sale November 30th.
One of the other big announcements of the week came from the world of NASCAR and came hot on the heels of their highly successful Sprint Cup preview earlier this month. The successful event proved that some of the biggest planned changes for the 2013 NASCAR season will be implemented for the upcoming year of racing. One of the biggest changes will be the introduction of the new “Gen 6” race cars; vehicles designed to operate more like street cars. New changes like this were announced along with the reveal that tickets for these 2013 events are now on sales for those who are ready to get in on plenty of NASCAR action next season.
