Are you in New York and looking for a way to spend a fun filled afternoon with your kids? Why isn’t there a pop concert festival you can take them to… Hmmm….
That’s exactly what will be taking place at the Nassau Memorial Coliseum in NY on February 20th 2010 as Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez (Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place) and her Band The Scene take the stage at The Pop-Con, an all day event for tweens. Other announced acts include Push Play, Mercy Mercedes, Sean Kingston, Care Bears on Fire, Nickelodeon’s Nat & Alex Wolff with more to come.
“Pop-con promises to be more than just a concert experience, with gaming stations, product sampling and vendors, including a “Culture Mall” which will host independent fashion merchandise from companies such as Glamour Kills. In addition, the event will have programmed lectures, seminars and other opportunities for young, aspiring artists, actors and actresses looking to get advice from top industry professionals and stars of sport and screen.”
Pop-Con might be sold out online at Ticketmaster or at the box office but if you are looking for tickets you have come to the right place. SaveFans! lets you negotiate the price you pay so you can get Cheap Pop-Con tickets here.
So continuing with today’s theme of uncomfortable videos we bring you the YouTube sensation – The worst sports announcer of all time. Catch phrases like “He passes to the man” “Wayne Summers” “Tomorrow’s game will be the meeting between the two” “switching to Ball St Men’s Tennis it seems less…. uh… player… it seems every week you have a player” and of course, “boom goes the dynamite” have landed Brian Collins Fox Sports‘ award for biggest blooper of all time. In honor of Brian and this hilarious video we would like to invite you all to PAY WHAT YOU WANT for Sports Tickets at SaveFans! And that’s no joke! Enjoy the video!
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will close Giants Stadium in New Jersey. For those of you that live under a rock, the famous stadium, the home of the New York Giants among others, will be demolished before the end of this year. How appropriate that Bruce Springsteen, who has sold out the stadium 16 times in his career, will be the last entertainment act to grace the stage.
I am not the sentimental type people – I am more of the lady killer type but this is a historic set of 3 shows and you gotta check it out. SaveFans.com let’s you Pay What You Want for Tickets, so take advantage and get your Springsteen tix baby!
So here we are… After an 82 game season and three rounds of the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs the same two teams are standing as last year, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Detroit Red Wings. Who is going to go home with Lord Stanley’s Cup? Will it be Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Marc Andre Fleury and the uber young Penguins? Or will the addition of Marian Hossa to already steller lineup of Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, and Niklas Lidstrom be enough for the Wings to repeat?
Your humble narrator from SaveFans.com is picking Detroit in 7. Kind of the obvious call but I see Detroit as too deep of a team to beat. Add home ice to the equation and you just can’t go against them. Canadian sensation Sid the Kid will have to wait until 2010 to hoist The Cup.
The good news is a long series means more games for you the fans to see in person at Joe Louis Arena and Mellon Arena! And anyone who has been to an NHL game knows hockey is the best spectator sport in the world by far.
So here you go Penguins and Wings fans… Pay what you want for Stanley Cup Tickets and watch history be made!
Vancouver is one of my favorite cities in the world! Great nightlife and beautiful women to boot – what more could a red blooded boy want! Anyways, as always I want to provide you with the 411 on the best live events occurring in YOUR hometown! So without further delay, allow me to recommend the top events in Vancouver, Canada from May 15 through May 28.
As many of you know, SaveFans.com is staffed chalk full of concert loving Canadians. Love the Great White North baby!
I decided to share with you what I think will become the definitive list of Top Ten Canadian musicians of all time. This promises to be better than our world famous Top 10 Jewish musicians list. Gotta love Canada baby! Without further delay, we present you with the Top 10 list.
Number #10 – Celine Dion
Celine Dion is flat out one of the finest singers to ever walk the planet. Say what you will about her musical selection or fashion sense, but this classy Diva from Montreal has some massive pipes! Celine is also a savvy business woman who earned a reported $100M+ for her two year stint at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas…wow.
Number #9 Snow aka Darrin O’Brien
Admit it! This makes you nostalgic. This Reggae jam owned the airwaves and dominated MTV’s video rotation in the 90′s. Informer, something something something…yeah! Ironically, Snow has since moved from Toronto, Canada to pursue a career as a doctor in Toledo, Ohio.
Number #8 The Guess Who
The Guess Who were straight up cool. They ruled the roost in the 70′s and represented Winnipeg well. With hits like “Shaking All Over” and “These Eyes” almost everyone in North America is familiar with their work. Seriously check them out. They are doing a short tour with most of the original band in tow. I recommend that you catch The Guess Who at Del Mar Fairgrounds on June 23! Worth a trip to the States no?
Number #7 The Tragically Hip
Us Canadians know that the Tragically Hip are more than the REM of Canada! The crew from Kingston have entertained us for years and always bring the goods. Show your support my lovelies by going to their shows!
Lukas won Rockstar Supernova, basically American Idol for Rock in 2006. Lukas is a brilliant musician and vocalist that we KNOW will make Canada proud. His new album will be coming out later this year, so we encourage you to support this young and emerging talent from Toronto, Ontario.
#5 Gordon Lightfoot
While, he may not be your cup of tea, he is for your parents and laid back folk! I saw him perform in Vancouver a few years back and it was a special experience. I urge you to support Gordon by checking out a few of his prime shows.
This Jagged little pill was a pillar of Alternative Rock in the 90′s. Famous for several awesome and iconic videos that ruled the MTV video rotation, Alanis may be best known for dating fellow Canadian Dave Coulier when she was ONLY 15 years of age. Scandalous!
Number #3 Neil Young
Neil is the elder statesman of rock. Beginning with the Buffalo Springfield, moving on to Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young and finally as a solo artist, Neil embodies what it means to be a musician’s musician. Living in Los Angeles, you grow to appreciate creative professionals opinions and the consensus is unanimous – Neil Young is boss. Anyone going to check out Crosby, Stills, and Nash without Neil Young?
Number #2 Bryan Adams
Bryan Adams is the Jesus Christ of the mid 90′s love song. Once cast as lead for the film Don Juan DeMarco, Bryan Adams had to settle for merely writing a song for the film when the studio got cold feet and replaced him with Johnny Depp. He wrote a little song called “Have you Ever Really Loved a Woman” heard of it
Show your support for fellow Canadian Bryan Adams and grab your tickets!
Rush is easily one of the best bands ever. Led by Jewish dynamo Geddy Lee, Rush was a vital force in the music business with an ever evolving sound that spanned Progressive Rock to Synthesizer laden pop (Tom Sawyer anyone). I love Rush and I hope you feel the same! Limelight baby!
I just gave Dane Cook a Comic Spotlight, so you know I think he has some talent. However, my friends at Comedy.com do not feel the same. They vote HACK! Anyways the boys and girls at Comedy.com produced a video highlighting the dreaded “Dane Cook’s Disease”!
Wilco are musician’s musicians. This is a band that has paid their dues, battled with their label, and still managed to build a career in the process. Like a lot of folks, I was first introduced to Wilco through their album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Little did I know they would outdo themselves with the under appreciated A Ghost is Born.
They are back out on tour my little droogies, I recommend that you see them live and purchase their self titled Wilco album slated for release in June 2009. Without further delay I want to discuss the shows that I believe will matter most.
As always we here at SaveFans.com are dedicated to bringing you the 411 on an event near you. Today we focus on one of my favorite cities Boston, Massachusetts baby! Beantown, we love that dirty water!
Without further delay, these are my top ticket event recommendations for Boston from May 11 through May 17.
