The Friday Five: The Main Event Playlist

In case you haven’t noticed, we are insanely excited about The Main Event Tour happening this summer.   NKOTB, TLC, and Nelly performing together on one stage?  It’s guaranteed to be a nonstop party.   Not sure about you, but we’ll be attending at least two shows.  Check out all of the tour dates HERE!  Here are some of the songs we can’t wait to hear this summer!

1. NKOTB – “Block Party”
The ultimate opening song, and NKOTB says it best:  “Leave your troubles all behind only good times here tonight.”  We still know all the choreography from The Package Tour.

2. TLC – “No Scrubs”
One of our favorite songs of the late 90s – we can’t wait for an arena-wide singalong.

3. Nelly – “Hot In Herre”
We’re imagining some sort of onstage collab between NKOTB & Nelly for this song, especially since NKOTB have done some “Dirty Dancing” to this song in the past.

4. NKOTB – “Cover Girl”
If you’ve seen NKOTB on tour before, then you might also know this song as “that song when Donnie rips off his tank top.”

5. TLC – Waterfalls
Throwing it way back to the days when we had to record songs off of the radio to cassette tapes on our boom boxes so we could listen on our Walkmen.  (Kids, if you have no idea what we’re taking about, watch this.  You have no idea how easy you have it now)

Paramore Announce “Writing The Future” Tour

Paramore just announced a string of shows this Spring to close out the “Self-Titled era” of the band, and they’re bringing Copeland with them!  “Writing The Future: An Intimate Evening of Music With Paramore” will bring the band to smaller venues and theaters around the United States.   Check out what the band had to say about the shows below.

“It feels right to bring the Self-Titled era to a close.  We’ve had a very personal and hugely triumphant journey with this one.  What wouldn’t feel right is saying goodbye to this time in the band’s career and not celebrating it with our fans in some special way.  So we’ve decided to do one last little run with it.  Smaller shows, beautiful theaters…and we’re not calling it a tour, by the way.  Each night will be a little event, or as we said just a few seconds ago, a celebration.  As we acknowledge the past few years (and more) of everything we’ve been through together, we’re also looking forward together at all there is to come.”

Shawn Mendes Reveals New Headlining Tour Dates

Few artists can get the internet buzzing like Shawn Mendes.   Within minutes of announcing something big was coming, #ShawnsFirstHeadlines was trending worldwide.   Shawn revealed the dates one by one,  sending the internet into a frenzy by giving only coordinates as clues or things like “We heard there’s some pretty awesome food here.”  (Which we immediately and accurately guessed as Paris because yes, the food there is AWESOME, and Shawn you must try some Pierre Herme macaroons while you’re there.)

The new shows are an extension of Shawn’s first headlining shows last fall, where he hit New York, Los Angeles and Toronto.  Be ready to buy tickets because those shows sold out in minutes, and we’re sure this next round will too!   The first 50 ticket buyers in each city will also get a free meet & greet with Shawn at the show!   Everyone will get a copy of Shawn’s debut album when it’s released.  Tickets go on sale on January 24th at 12pm local time for the US, and January 23rd 9am local time for dates in the UK and Europe.  Set those alarms!  Visit ShawnMendes.com for more info.
