Will Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers top the last 10 Halftime acts?

Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime

It’s where anything can happen—and does—during a live performance. Where the shows are discussed around the water cooler as much as the commercials or big game itself. Yeah, the Super Bowl halftime show is a pretty big deal. And you can bet that Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are planning to rock the socks off of millions of viewers during Super Bowl XLVIII (while hopefully keeping their own socks securely in place).

Opening Acts that Blew Up

You’ve gotta start somewhere. Many of music’s biggest talents got their big breaks opening concerts for others. It’s a tough job playing for audiences who often don’t know your songs. It’s even tougher to turn them into true fans. But that’s just what the artists on our list did.

We love catching opening acts. Sometimes they outshine the headliners (it’s awesome when that happens). So at your next concert, we urge you to show up unfashionably early. You may discover your new favorite – and get the right to brag about being a fan before everyone else if they do go big. Read the rest of this entry »

2014 Preview: Music Festivals


Summertime is festival time! Last year was HUGE for music’s outdoor blowouts, and this year you can expect more of the same (so load up on sunscreen).

From Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) to the CMA Music Festival to the family-friendly Disney Live tour, we’re your source for almost every festival under the sun … and moon (never mind the sunscreen for those).

Here are the ten most searched-for festivals on our site, and it’s just a taste of good things to come this season. If dates haven’t been announced yet, add them to your favorites so you can be the first of your friends to get the inside scoop. The Ticketmaster Blog team will be updating the dates and venue information as they fly in. So even though it may be below zero where you are right now, it’s time to start thinking outside the venue.

2014 Preview: Music Concert Calendar


We thought it couldn’t get any better than 2013, but by the way 2014 is starting off- it just might. There must have been something in the punch at the New Year’s Eve party because it seems many artists and bands all made the same resolution – take the stage more often than the year before. Right now some of the biggest names are preparing to go on tour, and you should be getting ready as well. This could be the year you finally see your favorite artist perform live!

Ticketmaster Employee Playlist: Winter 2014

Everyone has that song they put on repeat 30 times (maybe more) in a row. The song that they can’t seem to skip. The song that they play each morning when waking up to start their day off right. Or maybe it’s that song they obnoxiously sing out loud  as they drive alone in their car. As you read this, hopefully you’re shaking your head in agreement and that, as a matter of fact, that “song of the moment” is now playing in your head right now. If so – great! Mission accomplished.

A few of us here at Ticketmaster have put together a playlist of our favorite jams leading into 2014. Read the rest of this entry »
