Rod Stewart’s Time has reached number one on the charts and it did so by trying its best to recreate the sound of his last non-American Songbook album to reach number one in the states, Blondes Have More Fun. What does this mean for those with Rod Stewart tickets to see him perform at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace from June 4 to August 4, 2013?
It means very little as the sound on the new album is an extension of the program for the Vegas residency, which is built around his hits (It is called “The Hits”). The fans of the smoky-voiced singer will still get to listen to “Maggie May”, “You Wear It Well”, “Tonight’s the Night”, and “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”.
The one change they may notice is fewer soccer balls being kicked into the stands. Stewart has long made this a part of his act, as he started off as an aspiring professional soccer player before settling on the rock and roll lifestyle. However, employees at the Caesars have expressed concern that some fanatical audience member may take a dive off the balcony trying to catch one of those balls. Given that Rod the Mod was getting them up to the third balcony, this might not be such a ridiculous request.
He may be able to recover from making his daughter’s sex life public knowledge or admitting to dabbling with cocaine suppositories in the past, but I am not sure even Rod Stewart could not recover from this kind of a tragedy in the middle of his set. So, be prepared to enjoy an once-in-a-lifetime show at the Colloseum with a little less athletics.
On May 4, 2013 the MGM Grand Arena will once again host one the most hyped and highly anticipated events in the world of pugilism. Floyd Mayweather Jr., the 36 year old boxer who has gone by the name Pretty Boy and has become Money, is out to prove he is still the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. Robert Guerrero, the Ghost, stands in his way. VegasTickets has Tickets available to this fight at very competitive prices. Click Here to view Tickets to this event.
There is, of course, a belt on the line. In this case it is the WBC Welterweight Championship. However, this fight would be just as exciting even without any kind of bling on the line. Really, Mayweather is trying to prove he is still an elite boxer and can remain one as he approaches 40. He could not find a better fighter to prove this than Guerrero. The Ghost is an attacker who charges and looks to overwhelm the opponent. Mayweather is noted as a defensive genius, so if he can maintain the space and pace against this caliber a hitter then it appears Money will remains the No. 1 pound for pound fighter in boxing.
On June 28, 2013 the MGM Grand Garden Arena will host 16,800 screaming fans that are already prepared to cheer on Justin Bieber, even though the show is two months away. These devotees will be there whether his recent trouble with the media is forgotten or he continues to find his way into the headlines in a negative light.
These recent news items include cancelling a show because he did not sell out Justin Bieber tickets, an altercation with a photographer that was captured on video, arriving two hours late to a concert in London, and allegedly spitting on a neighbor. Of course, none of these play as badly as his trip to the Anne Frank House.
There, after spending an hour learning about the tragic figure’s plight and eventual demise, he unwisely made mention in the guest book that he hoped she would be one of his fans (paraphrasing) if she were alive today. This did not make his PR team happy. Besides, since she was 15 before arriving in a concentration camp, she would actually have been on the cusp of graduating from his core audience.
Of course, the reality is that though Justin Bieber is certainly acting immature, he is hardly taking things as far as other stars that had to grow up in the proverbial spotlight. He is a guy so he can go shirtless without causing controversy (though he will still invoked the wrath of lady comedians), he is not consistently setting himself up for bad breakups, and he is not developing a debilitating drug habit.
All in all, he is handling things pretty well for a kid who has been able to purchase a luxury car before he could even drive. So, parents do not worry about any slightly more illicit lyrics. As long as he shows up to the show, which he will do since the show is going to be sold out, it will be money well spent.
Las Vegas only has four performances left to enjoy one of country music’s most influential couples before they return to Nashville. These last Soul2Soul tickets are on sale for a couple of two-a-day performances on April 26 and 27. After that, it is back to normal, at least “normal” for a couple of platinum-selling musicians.
Tim McGraw will take a short break (four days) before beginning the Two Lanes of Freedom tour with Brantley Gilbert and Love and Theft. Now, this would seem to contradict the reason there were so few chances to see him and wife Faith Hill perform in Vegas at the Venetian Hotel and Casino. Get Soul2Soul Tickets here before it’s too late!
The power couple originally stated they were open to playing a residency show in Sin City because it would only take them away from their children for two or three nights a month. The Two Lanes of Freedom tour is going to keep him on the road until July 27, 2013.
However, Hill will at least be around to keep tabs on the couple’s three daughters, two of whom are teenagers (Gracie and Maggie). This certainly makes it difficult for Tim and Faith to plan a true third Soul2Soul Tour. So, it appears these final four concerts may be the best chance to see the two perform together until their youngest, Audrey, leaves for college.
Of course, then the two will have a lot more to sing about (having survived three rounds of teenage daughter angst and beginning the first stages of empty nest syndrome). Imagine that set list! It would be an emotional roller-coaster.
UFC 160 is more than a chance to watch Antonio Silva challenge Cain Velasquez for the heavyweight championship. It is an opportunity to see the precursor to perhaps the biggest MMA fight in recent memory!
If Silva takes out Velasquez and Junior dos Santos is able to defeat Mark Hunt in an undercard matchup, then the two winners, who are friends, would happily accept the chance to meet each other in the octagon. There would be a title on the line and, if there ever was a time a friendship should risk major fallout, it is over a championship. Friends have fought and fallen out over less.
Shania Twain has amped up the show for the second round of her “Still the One” Dates. She has added a stunning motorcycle built of silver and brass to the stage show, along with the obligatory leather motorcycle outfit. The impressive hog will join the Canadian country pop singer’s other obsession, horses, on stage at Caesar’s Palace as she begins a series of residency dates that will last until June!
In addition to the props and the hopefully much cropped outfit, she has added new video to rev up the visual experience in a way that only today’s multimedia sensory overload can. Get Shania Twain tickets to see her perform Fridays through Sundays during the weekend and Tuesday and Wednesday during the week.
Haze is getting a Grammy Award winner to come and host a DJ set! King of the Auto-Tune, T-Pain will be playing resident DJ at the Aria Hotel and Casino. He will be beckoning the crowd to get “Low” and to celebrate the “Good Life”.
The singer, songwriter, and producer is spending his Saturday nights getting the crowd pumped as he prepares to release his fifth full-length studio album, Stoicville: The Phoenix. T-Pain and his residence, dubbed the House of Pain, is certainly just the beginning for a man who has laid low since Revolver came out two years ago.
It was only a matter of time. Any day now some Las Vegas resort is going to announce they have signed Britney Spears to play a five-year residency worth half a billion dollars. Her family is already worried the pop star equally as famous for her recent breakdowns as her long history of hits will fall from grace once again. The rumor is that she will be set up in a mansion in the northern Vegas suburbs and her father reportedly is concerned being located in the burbs will not keep her from the 24-hour party lifestyle that is Sin City.
Lady Gaga is brewing controversy at just about every turn. The latest is Mother Monster talking about leaving the music business to pursue an acting career after her experience on the set of Machette. Supposedly, she is going to take a leave of absence to forge a career path that is better suited for a domestic lifestyle. Apparently she has not seen the divorce rates for big stars in Tinsel Town!
All this is talk right now, talk after her fans berated and bullied journalists despite her anti-bullying theme as a part of the Born This Way Ball. Ah, irony.
Still, Gaga has plenty of fans in Las Vegas and if there is any city in the United States that best appeals to her constant need for change, it is Sin City. Maybe those January 26, 2013 Lady Gaga Tickets at the MGM Grand could turn into the latest residency for the Strip.
It has been a great residency for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, and, though their time sharing the stage at the Venetian Hotel and Casino is not yet over, the end is near. This weekend the country king and queen will be playing three shows and just 22 will remain.
Overall, Soul2Soul Tickets are available for just seven more weekends. These shows are built around the couple’s three kids’ school schedule and the upcoming tours for the individual artists. Tim McGraw is going to begin his Two Lanes of Freedom Tour in May and Faith Hill is going to heading out on the road to promote her new album Illusion.
