Finalllllly….the Rock has come back….to Survivor Series! The moment WWE wrestling fans have been waiting over 7 years for has finally arrived as this Sunday night live at the worlds most famous arena; Madison Square Garden in New York City, The Rock returns to in ring action! Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson has been busy the last 7 years away from the squared circle becoming one of hollywood’s biggest box office attractions, a movie star! His latest role as “Roadblock” in the new “GI JOE” movie will cement the Rock’s legacy as an action star on the big screen. But before the lights, camera and action of tinsel town, the Rock used to kick ass for a living in the wrestling ring for WWE. He was (and still is) one of the biggest sellers of merchandise, Pay-Per-Views, dvds, Games, Toys and most importantly – Live event tickets – in the history of the wrestling world!
This Sunday, the Rock will team up with his WrestleMania opponent John Cena as they take on the Miz and R-Truth in the main event of WWE’s 25th annual Survivor Series Event. The sold out event set box office records for the WWE at Madison Square Garden but wrestling fans need not worry. At SaveFans! we have plenty of cheap Survivor Series tickets to see the Rock back in the ring!
Of course in wrestling, some things never change and this dream team of the Rock and John Cena won’t last.

Our 2011-2012 NHL season preview takes us to the big apple, New York City, home of the New York Rangers and the most famous arena in the world: Madison Square Garden. Hockey fans in the city that never sleeps have seen their season put to sleep early every season since Mark Messier hoisted the Stanley Cup almost 20 years ago. Upper management was in the spending mood in the off season by bringing in one of the hottest free agents in all of hockey, the prolific Brad Richards. Richards will attempt to take the Rangers to the promised land under the microscope of playing in the media capital of the world. Will he be able to handle the pressure? On paper the Rangers have a pretty exciting team but chemistry is everything in sports and when a team throws new players together sometimes it takes a while for it all to click. Just ask the Miami Heat about that. We see the Rangers riding Goalie Henrik Lundqvist into the playoffs this season, but in order for them to go deep this season coach John Tortorella is going to have to get everyone on the same page, something the Rangers have been unable to do in a very long time.
Key Players: Brad Richards, Henrik Lundqvist, Marion Gaborik, Wojtek Wolski, Ryan Callahan, Brandon Dubinsky, Daniel Girardi
Head Coach: John Tortarella
How They Fared in 2010-2001: lost in Conference Quarter Finals to Washington Capitals

It wouldn’t be New York Rangers hockey if there wasn’t some Broadway drama thrown into the mix. The NY Rangers disappointed fans last year by losing in a shootout to the Philadelphia Flyers and missing the playoffs, but, much to their excitement this year, staved off elimination by winning on the final day of the regular season and securing the East’s number eight seed. The Blue Shirts can now focus on post-season hockey for the first time in two years, staring right down the barrel of Alex Ovechkin’s gun. Will the Big Apple be celebrating a big Stanley Cup victory in 2011?
Key Players: Marian Gaborik, Henrik Lundqvist, Brandon Dubinsky, Bryan McCabe
Head Coach: John Tortorella
How They Fared in 2010: Did not qualify for 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs
New York Rangers Playoff Prediction For 2011: NYR passed their first test. Making it to the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Their second test? Defeating Alex Ovechkin and the top seeded Washington Capitals. Is this a possibility? The easy answer is no – especially not with the recent loss of Ryan Callahan. The more complicated answer – when you have Henrik Lundqvist in goal there’s always a chance. Lundy will need to stand on his head every night and sniper Marian Gaborik will need to bring it, and stay healthy, if the Rangers want to replicate what Montreal did to Washington last year. Pull a huge opening round upset. The real answer – The New York Rangers will be golfing in about two weeks.

Here is something that has not been said in the past 7 years. The New York Knicks have qualified for the NBA Playoffs. Another franchise that lost its pursuit of LeBron James, and may be the better for it, the new look Knicks will enter the post-season with real weapons and a real chance at making some noise. Do The Knickerbockers have what it takes to win a series or two in 2011?
How They Fared in 2010: Did not qualify for postseason
NY Knicks Playoffs Prediction For 2011: It has been a long time since the NBA Playoffs had a representative from NY wearing Blue and Orange. Seven years of losing basketball had fans in MSG depressed – yet – looking forward to the off-season of 2010 where a bevy of free-agents laid in wait of saving the franchise. After striking out on most of the big names, including LeBron James and Dwayne Wade, the Knicks went with Plan-B, AKA Amare Stoudemire. Great out of the gate this season, the Knicks progress since slowed, probably due to swirling rumors that Carmelo Anthony could be had from the Denver Nuggets. That rumor became reality, as New York traded three of their starting five players for Melo and Mr Big Shot, Chauncey Billups. Shock-waves flowed through NYC, and, excitement grew that the NY Knicks had a real chance of winning a title. With a less than stellar record with Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups in the fold, expectations have come down dramatically for Knicks fans. However, few teams in the East would like to face Melo, Amare, Billups, and a D’Antoni offense in the first round of the playoffs. Expect the Knicks to take a few games off a team like Boston or Miami in the opening round before exiting post-season play early in 2011. 2012 will be a different story… Maybe…

With the passing of music legend and world icon Michael Jackson we pause to reflect on what an absolutely amazing life he lived and what an incredible talent he was. In his prime Michael was undeniably the world’s biggest star and anyone in show business would do anything to work with him. Here at SaveFans! we have put together an All-Star top 10 list of MJ’s greatest collaborations with music’s biggest artists:
MJ vs MJ. NBA vs Epic Records. The two biggest stars on Earth battle it out on the dance floor and basketball court – winner gets the initials. Magic Johnson couldn’t attend for some reason but there are amazing cameos from Kris Kross and Heavy D.
Nepotism much? Barry Gordy’s son Rockwell somehow gets The King Of Pop to sign BACK UP vocals on his only hit single! Every song Michael touched in 1984 turned to gold, this one no different cracking the top 10 in both the United States and UK.
Didn’t know Guns N Roses legend Slash played guitar on this face morphing smash hit? Check out this amazing live performance from the duo at Michael’s 30th anniversary special at Madison Square Garden.
Okay we just had to throw this in there. Daughter of the other biggest music star of all time… Elvis Presley… And technically marriage is a “duet”. Remember this awkward moment at the 1994 MTV Video Music Awards?
Michael and Diana hit the stage many times together but are obviously best known for their work in the Motown musical film The Wiz. This Wonderful Wizard of Oz remake may have bombed at the box office but at least gave us a hit from a young and upcoming MJ - Ease On Down The Road. And while many credit Diana for discovering the Jackson 5 it was actually Bobby Taylor and Gladys Knight that did so… Check out an even younger and more adorable Michael with Diana in this Frank Sinatra remake from 1971.
The story goes like this. Eddie Van Halen receives a phone call from Quincy Jones. Thinking its a crank call he hangs up. He later finds out he was asked to play guitar on a Michael Jackson track. Feeling like an idiot he performs a guitar solo free of charge. The song ends up on the biggest album of all time, Thriller, itself one of the biggest hits of all time, Beat It. (sorry about the poor video quality)
These two classic Michael songs involve legendary bassist Paul McCartney. MJ and Macca later had a falling out as Michael outbid Sir Paul on his own song catalogue. Michael paid a reported $47 million in 1985 for over 200 Beatles songs composed by McCartney and John Lennon. We will remember the genius of the two as a duet…
Reacting to a terrible drought that decimated food supplies in Ethiopia in 1984-1985 Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie wrote We Are the World. Produced and conducted by Quincy Jones this song was a whos who of A-List artists. Potentially the most talent laden song of all time this mega hit featured vocals from MJ, Lionel Richie, Paul Simon, Kenny Rogers, James Ingram, Tina Turner, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Dionne Warwick, Willie Nelson, Al Jarreau, Bruce Springsteen, Kenny Loggins, Steve Perry, Daryl Hall, Huey Lewis, Cyndi Lauper. Kim Carnes, Bob Dylan, and Ray Charles with background vocals from Dan Aykroyd, Harry Belafonte, Lindsey Buckingham, The News, Sheila E., Bob Geldorf, Jackie Jackson, LaToya Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Randy Jackson, Tito Jackson, Waylon Jennings, Bette Midler, John Oates, Jeffrey Osborne, The Pointer Sisters, and Smokey Robinson.
Michael we’re all going to miss you. This top 10 list is dedicated to you and your career. Rest in peace.
Well wouldn’t you know Ticketmaster is scalping tickets for the pop princess herself, Britney Spears! We crunched the numbers and here are the results. A total of 15 shows are currently on sale on Ticketmaster.com and Ticketmaster.ca for Britney’s Circus tour. As of Saturday, June 20th at 5pm pst, Ticketexchange was offering a total of 5690 tickets for a whopping $1,478,550.64 (Ticketmaster is also holding high bid wins auctions and VIP seats which makes this number even higher). Here is a breakdown per show:
As if this isn’t disgusting enough, Ticketmaster is actually retailing a pair of tickets to the Las Vegas show at Mandalay Bay Resort on September 6th for $2,698.44 per ticket!!!!!!
So how do we know that Ticketmaster is responsible for these seats? Well we were lucky enough to catch a glitch on Ticketmaster’s part that placed the Ticketexchange seats on sale BEFORE the show even went on sale to the public! And since you need to register a bank account and input the bar codes from the tickets to list tickets for sale on Ticketexchange it is literally impossible that these seats could have come from anyone but a Ticketmaster insider. Here is a screen shot taken on June 19th at 3am (the show wasn’t on sale until 10am).
SaveFans! is here to “save fans” from this corporate B.S. We will continue to let you, the ticket buying public, know whats really going on out there and we will always let you pay what you want at SaveFans.com!
SaveFans.com aims to be bigger than StubHub and TicketsNow. That is our goal plain and simple.
Since we have the 411 on the ticket industry, we wanted to alert you to lower than expected offers for Bruce Springsteen tickets. This can be happening for any number of reasons, but rest assured the shows are NOT selling well. This is bargain basement time as secondary market tickets are currently selling BELOW FACE VALUE.
Don’t say SaveFans.com doesn’t love you. I continue to boost the Springsteen shows and think that you should consider attending these specific performances from the Boss!
Metallica is on tour in a city near you! As always your humble servant has the low down on some extra special Metallica shows with some extra special secret guests. I want to rank what I believe to be are the best 6 shows starting with number 6!
Kick- Ass Show #6 Munich, Germany
I know that most of our site visitors are American’s but this is the tour opener. And how metal is Germany! Great way to kick-off the tour. Ladies yours truly will be in Germany in early May – I might not be James Hetfield but I can rock out
In honor of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday – we put together a list of the Top 10 Catholic Musicians of all time! Of course, you know we are going to focus on pop and rock and are totally going to ignore Luciano Pavarotti and all that kind of noise. So without further delay, in descending order – Your Top 10 list.
This South African idol was raised Catholic and attended their notoriously fun schools for most of his boyhood. While, he has recently declared himself to be Agnostic – which is the celebrity trend these days – I have decided to ignore his wishes and include him on our list.
I also want to inform my treasured readers that Dave Matthews Band is on tour and that we have set up a page for you to browse. Thank me later.
Number #9 Nicole Scherzinger aka Nicole Elikolani Prescovia Valiente of the Pussy Cat Dolls
OK, I admit the Pussy Cat Dolls are completely worthless. Additionally, Nicole doesn’t seem to be very talented. However, you have to admit that she has a nice rack. Truly great – it seems like the tabloids and media are really pushing this point home in recent months. And people, I am buying.
Number #8 Frankie Valli aka Francesco Stephen Castelluccio and the Four Seasons
This is my old school surprise choice and secret fascination. I mean we are talking about an ant of a guy with a woman’s voice that nonetheless was a legendary lady killer in his day. For example, how many people know that the sweet and innocent sounding “Oh What a Night” is about a one night stand…with a prostitute!
Also, I love that this guy is getting more recognition due to the success of the theater show Jersey Boys. I know it sounds funny, but you gotta see the show. Take my advice and skim the Jersey Boys tickets page we set up just for you!
While, I hate her music I happen to think Xtina is hot with a nice set of…vocal cords. Managed by the most evil guy in the biz – Irving Azoff – this former Mousekateer has moved lots of merchandise and concert tickets. A saner version of Britney Spears really.
Catholic roots – good enough for me. Then again do I even need to defend this? These guys sang about “Personal Jesus” and put together the extravagant Playing the Angels tour. Safe to say these guys have a spiritual streak.
Lucky for you dear readers, the band is on tour and we set up a Depeche Mode tickets page for you to browse. Also, try to get to these shows in particular as the industry is abuzz about some surprise.
OK, why is this French Canadian on this list I hear ya. But, let’s be honest. This girl can sing. No one has the vocal cords that she does and almost no modern singer has been able to match her commercial success. She has made untold of gobs of money putting on that show at Caesars Palace. Gotta give some respect.
I am torn about her conclusion her for two reasons. One, she abandoned the Church of Rome and is now into Kabbalah or some shit. Second, I already put her on the Five Worst Jewish Musicians of All Time list. Basically, she used to have a good career so she gets included on the “Good” Catholic list for her past achievements.
That said people, Madonna can rock out. I saw her in Los Angeles earlier this year and you need to see her live to really appreciate her music. Because SaveFans.com got the hookup we set up a browsers page for you to find Madonna Tickets near you!
The Boss, America’s Poet and all that Jazz. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band really do know how to put on a show as they demonstrated in the last Super Bowl. Take it from me. Check out his last ever tour and find the Bruce Springsteen tickets that are right for you! Look out for a few of the premier shows including their special Clearwater Concert at the Madison Square Garden featuring the Dave Matthews Band.
Who else did you think it was going to be? Bono, The Edge, and co. have been representing for Catholics for years! Whether it is fighting to end hunger, poverty, or AIDs, the boys from Ireland are center stage and constantly affirming their faith. Granted you got to wonder sometime, I mean was I the only once that saw the photos of Bono cavorting with those teenage and underdressed girls aboard his yacht earlier this year? Not that I gotta problem with that – that earns him points in my book.
Got a problem with Bono? Tell him yourself as his tour is re-routing back to the United States. We set up a U2 Tickets page for you guys and also encourage you to check out the following specific dates as these are the can’t miss shows!
