TODAY Show Announces 2017 Summer Concert Series

The TODAY Show just announced their annual Summer concert series performers and this year they’ve got some HUGE names coming to the plaza to perform all Summer long!  They’re no strangers to getting the biggest names in music to perform and this year is no different.  Past artists include 5SOS, Dierks Bentley, Shawn Mendes, Celine Dion, Charlie Puth, Fifth Harmony, Fall Out Boy, Nicki Minaj, Hunter Hayes, Jason Aldean, Puff Daddy, and Meghan Trainor.

All concerts take place live from Rockefeller Plaza outside of the TODAY show studios in NYC.  If you plan on attending, we suggest showing up no later than 5am  as there is usually a crowd and entry is not guaranteed even with a Fan Pass. All concerts take place between 7am and 9am and most of the time, you’ll get to see the artists soundcheck as well!

TODAY Show fan passes are available by signing up for the TodayShow newsletter and are the best way to experience these early morning sing alongs.  These passes get you closer to your favorite artists and let’s face it, you’ll always remember that morning when Niall/Harry/Thomas Rhett/Joe Jonas/Halsey serenaded you – not that Wednesday or Friday that you were so well rested for work/school.

Sign up for fan passes HERE and we’ll see you out on the plaza!!  Check out the full line up below.

Tennis Tuesday: News Roundup

This Week’s Tournament:
Miami Open – Miami, FL USA

Rafael Nadal Plays 1000th Career ATP Match
Nadal played the 1000th match of his career at the ATP World Tour Level at the Miami Open over the weekend.   He defeated Phillip Kohlschreiber 0-6, 6-2, 6-3 to gain his 822nd victory on tour.  The match was just the 3rd time in Rafa’s career that he’s come back to win the match after getting “bageled” in the first.  Nadal takes on Nicolas Mahut in the 4th round in Miami today.   Vamos!

Shania Twain Meets Stan The Man
Our fangirl worlds collided over the weekend when one of our favorite artists, Shania Twain, posted a photo with one of our favorite players, Stan Wawrinka!

Iggy The Iguana Takes Over Miami
Tommy Haas also posted a photo with the now famous “Iggy” the Iguana at the Miami Open.  Haas captured the selfie mid-match, after a giant iguana came onto the court, halting play as linesmen scrambled to catch him.  (He’s a fast one!)

Linesman Frankie Melendez, who eventually caught the iguana, is the real hero.

Jo-Wilfred Tsonga Welcomes First Child
Tsonga announced the birth of his son on social media.  We hope he gets his dad’s amazing hair (and tennis skills!)

The Friday Five: Super Bowl Halftime Shows

It’s Super Bowl time once again and while the ads are fun (remember the Tim Tebow one with the puppies?) the halftime show is what we’re all watching for…right?  Coldplay is set to perform this year, along with some special guests.   In honor of Sunday’s game, we’re throwing it back to our five favorite halftime shows!  Which reminds us:  how have Backstreet Boys not done a halftime show?   Can someone get on that for 2017?

1. *NSYNC, Britney Spears, & Aerosmith – 2001

2. NKOTB – 1991
This one’s for the children.

3. Shania Twain & No Doubt – 2003
Not sure what the theme was here, but what’s not to like?  Shania Twain?  Good.  No Doubt?  Good.  Let’s go football fans!

4. Justin Timberlake & Janet Jackson – 2004
If they had just had *NSYNC perform again, that whole wardrobe malfunction wouldn’t have happened, just saying.

5. Beyonce & Destiny’s Child – 2013
Like JT briefly acknowledged *NSYNC at the VMAs in 2013, Beyonce brought back Destiny’s Child for a hot second at the halftime show the same year.

The Friday Five: Summer 2015 Tours

Livenation kicked of the summer concert season with a huge show in NYC on National Concert Day, May 5th and that got us super excited about all of the huge tours we’re going to!   This week, we’re bringing you our five summer tours we’re the MOST excited about.

1. “The Main Event Tour” ft. NKOTB, TLC, & Nelly
This tour deserves the name “The Main Event” with three huge acts on one stage, one night, the night of a lifetime!  Yahoo!Screen is also streaming the show next Thursday, May 14th at 10pm EST for 24 hours only – if you can resist tuning in, we salute you.

2. “The Wheels Up Tour” ft. Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, & Sam Hunt
If you are a regular reader you know we’ll go pretty much anywhere to see Hunter or Sam.  We were so excited when this tour was announced we literally screamed in a French restaurant.   Tickets for this tour went on sale in waves which drove us nuts waiting for the email with our dates in it but once it arrived, it was wheels up, baby!  If you can score tickets to this tour, you’ll be treated to some extra special in flight entertainment all night long.  After all, we don’t have to go home we can leave the night on.

3. “Rock This Country! Tour” ft. Shania Twain
Shania announced a brand new tour on the heels of her Las Vegas residency coming to a close but she made sure we knew this was her last tour – EVER!  Put on your cowboy boots and get ready to rock this country with Shania!

4. “Dazed & Confused Tour” ft. Jake Miller
When our bae Jake Miller just released his brand new single “Dazed & Confused” and he announced a tour with the same name, we knew we had to be there to see those arms in person – and hear his angelic voice obviously!

5. The Vamps USA Tour
It’s been entirely too long since The Vamps last US invasion and we can’t wait for their first headlining tour here this Summer!  They’re bringing Before You Exit along for what’s sure to be a memorable evening.    We have high hopes that you’ll be lovestruck and will shout about it for weeks to come.
