Tennis Tuesday: News Roundup

This Week’s Tournament:
BNP Paribas Masters – Paris, France

It’s hard to believe we’ve already made it to the last tournament of the regular season of the ATP World Tour!   The tour wraps up this week in Paris, with 2 more spots on the line for a spot in the World Tour Finals happening later this month in London.  Marin Cilic moved up to the 9th position after winning the title in Basel Last week, with Dominic Thiem just ahead at #8.  The year end #1 ranking is also on the line in Paris as Andy Murray closed in on current #1 Novak Djokovic by winning the title in Vienna last week.

 

Jack Sock Wins Doubles in Basel
American Jack Sock won his 2nd doubles title of the year, this time with partner Marcel Granollers.  This was Jack’s 4th final (singles and doubles) since the end of the US Open.  Jack Sock for President!

 

BNP Paribas Showdown 2017 Lineup Announced
2017 marks the 10 year anniversary of the BNP Paribas Showdown.  The annual event, held at Madison Square Garden, features the top names in tennis facing off in an exhibition match in celebration of World Tennis Day.  This year’s event features Venus Williams vs Garbine Mugaruza, Jack Sock vs Nick Kyrgios, and Kei Nishikori vs Juan Martin del Potro.  The showdown is March 6th 2017 at MSG and tickets are on sale now!

5SOS Sell Out Madison Square Garden on “Sounds Live, Feels Live” World Tour

We can officially say “5SOS sold out MSG!!!”  That’s a feat of epic proportions, especially for a band that hasn’t been around that long.  It’s hard to believe that just two short years ago the guys were headlining the nearby Best Buy Theater, which holds about 2,000 people.  Luke, Ashton, Calum, and Michael played every song we could have asked for on this tour and you could hear the entire arena singing every word!

The band played their new single, “Girls Talk Boys,” for the first time live at MSG.  The track had just dropped the day of the show, but fans already knew all of the words and kept singing like they had been all night.  The performance of the funky song saw lead singer Luke Hemmings jump on the piano for a bit – cue the swoons.

Drummer Ashton took the time to remind the crowd to always follow their dreams, saying he went from playing in his garage to playing in the legendary Madison Square Garden.  He also said the crowd was the loudest he’d ever heard, despite having played many other shows.

Before going into the first verse of “Jet Black Heart” solo, Michael soaked up the applause from the crowd.  Just when you thought he was going to keep going, the crowd just got louder and louder.  It was one of the most energetic crowds we’ve ever seen at MSG (or anywhere for that matter!)  We’re so proud of how far 5SOS have come so far and can’t wait for what’s next!

Shania Twain Going on Final “Rock This Country” Tour

It’s real, y’all!  Rumors had been going around that Shania Twain would be heading out on tour, and she confirmed the news this morning with a huge announcement on GMA.  The Rock This Country  Tour kicks off in Seattle on June 5th, with dates across the US and Canada throughout the Summer, including a stop at Madison Square Garden!  It’s been 12 years since Shania’s last headlining tour, but after all these years, she’s still the one.  She also announced that this would be her LAST tour ever!

Her two year residency in Las Vegas ended last year, and if that show is any indicator of what to expect on tour, we are in for an AMAZING show.  Her Vegas show had everything: flying motorcycles, live horses, moving sets, leopard jumpsuits, backup dancers, and more.  If you missed it, you can pickup a copy of Shania Twain: Still The One on DVD and get ready to rock this country with Shania all summer.

Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, March 13th, with pre-sales happening a few days before.  Come on over to ShaniaTwain.com for all the details and check out the dates below!
