Hot Events: October 17, 2019
Eagles - The Eagles are embarking on a nationwide tour in 2020 where they'll play the entire track list of Hotel California from beginning to end. The tour will kick off in Atlanta in February 2020, and then the iconic rock group will hit New York, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Billie Ellish - Here’s another use for the word “duh,” outside of its repeated inclusion in Billie Eilish’s hit single, “Bad Guy”: There’s not a ticket left for her first American arena tour — surprising no one. That’s the case for most of her 2020 shows in the rest of the world, too. Pollstar reports that a half-million tickets were sold just during the first hour of the Oct. 4 on-sale for a 42-date tour that will take the teen sensation through North America, South America and Europe over five months, starting in March 2020. But guess what, we have your tickets!
Kenny Chesney / FGL / Old Dominion Tour - After touring arenas in 2019, Kenny Chesney has announced his return to stadiums for 2020. The performer, who has become synonymous with massive-venue country-music tours, will launch the Chillaxification 2020 Tour on April 18th at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The trek currently runs through August 28th, with more shows to be announced. Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, and reggae-pop band Michael Franti & Spearhead will open all dates.
Elton John - Do not miss the chance to experience Elton John in concert. Our British-born icon announced that he's looking to spend more time with his young children. John is on a three-year, 300-stop "Farewell Yellow Brick Road" tour that will have him crossing the globe for a final time. After more than half a century on the road and an unparalleled career that has redefined the cultural landscape, Elton has announced this will be his final tour.
Nationals – World Series bound! Who will face the Nationals?
NBA -Lakers, Clippers, Nets and Knicks. All the changes in off season, who will reign this season?
Freestyle Love Supreme - Broadway will soon host two Lin-Manuel Miranda shows, when Freestyle Love Supreme comes to the Booth Theatre, just a block south of Miranda's Hamilton. The improvised hip-hop musical from Miranda, Thomas Kail, and Anthony Veneziale, which enjoyed a sold-out run downtown earlier this year, will begin previews September 13. Opening is set for October 2. The show is scheduled for a 16-week run. “Fifteen years ago, when Freestyle Love Supreme was first developed, the idea of bringing our little improv show to Broadway seemed completely out of the realm of possibility,” said Kail and Miranda in a statement. “But it is out of that improbability that FLS has found this new home, thanks to legions of loyal fans—first at Ars Nova, at various festivals around the world, then with one-off shows, and most recently with our off-Broadway run last winter. We’ve had many of our happiest and most fulfilling creative moments working on FLS and are excited to see its next chapter unfold at the Booth Theatre. It is a show that consistently surprises us: we have no idea what to expect any time we do it— and isn’t that the true beauty of live theater? Freestyle Love Supreme wouldn’t want or have it any other way!”
