Luke Bryan’s latest album topped charts everywhere in 2013 with singles like “That’s My Kind of Night” and “Drink a Beer”. Tickets to his concerts will be a hot commodity this spring, with few tickets available at the time of the public onsale.
We might still be in the grips of winter, but music fans in the Pacific Northwest were treated to a huge treat as the lineup for this summer’s Squamish Valley Music Festival was announced yesterday. Headliners for 2014 include Bruno Mars, The Arcade Fire, and rap megastar Eminem. Other notable acts – and there are many of them – include the Arctic Monkeys, Serena Ryder, Foster the People, Sam Roberts Band and Tokyo Police Club.
Three-day passes and single-day tickets will go on sale to the public next week.
The Calgary Stampede has a way of attracting the top country music stars, and 2014 will be no different. Canadian superstar Shania Twain will be performing at the Scotiabank Saddledome on July 9th and – as announced January 24 – July 10th, 2014. Twain has been performing in Las Vegas since her resident show Shania: Still the One began in December 2012 – her last album release was the best-selling Up! over a decade ago in 2002.
Shania’s appearance at the Stampede is drawing a lot of comparisons with Garth Brooks’ performance in 2012 with regards to star power. Tickets for that show sold out in mere moments and were one of the hottest tickets around – it’s expected that Twain’s concert will be similarly coveted this time around. Tickets are now on sale for both the July 9th and 10th dates.
