New Dates for Taylor Swift’s ‘The Eras Tour’: Mexico & South America

7th June 2023 | Category: Concerts

Taylor Swift is taking her The Eras Tour outside of the USA, much to the delight of non-US Swifties. Just recently, the “All Too Well” songstress announced 9 more international shows that would complement her viral The Eras Tour.

The international dates include three shows in Mexico, three in Brazil, and three in Argentina. If you want to learn more about the tour, as well as get information as to where to purchase the tickets, just keep reading!

The Eras Tour Context

The Eras Tour is the sixth international tour for Taylor Swift, and the first one since the Reputation Stadium Tour in 2018. The COVID-19 outbreak clearly put a damper on concerts and tours, but Swift was far from being lazy.

The 33-year-old singer-songwriter released two surprise albums, Folklore and Evermore, within the span of a year, and delighted her fandom with another album called Midnights last year. And if three brand-new albums were not enough, she also re-recorded her two older albums Fearless (Taylor’s Version) and Red (Taylor’s Version).  Therefore, there is more than enough to celebrate and promote.

A year before the pandemic was also the year she released Lover, another album that did not get its much-deserved time under the spotlight via headliner tours. The Lover Fest tour had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, so Swifties have been waiting for a spectacle for quite some time.

As she was unable to go on tour and properly promote her new (and old-new) albums in the past few years, she has opted to make an amalgamation of her greatest hits from all her eras – which is how we’ve gotten the very title The Eras Tour.

Another quite interesting fact about this tour is that it garnered so much attention that it crashed the Ticketmaster on the very first day.

That’s right, folks – Ticketmaster crashed on the first official presale day when over 3.5 million visitors tried to access the website and obtain their tickets for the Taylor Swift 3-hour spectacle. And that was when only the dates for US shows were known!

About the Tour

Each concert show lasts for over three hours, with a set list of approximately 44 songs. However, the imaginative genius of Taylor Swift created a real show out of to highlight all of her albums. That is why the show is split into 10 sections, each representing an era of Swift’s music career (or album). All acts conceptually represent albums, with unique choreographies, costumes, and visual imagery.

The tour officially began in Glendale, Arizona, on March 17th, 2023.At first, Swift announced 46 concerts in the USA, set to happen between March 17th and August 9th. Her guests and opening acts on tour include a variety of performers, including HAIM, Gayle, Gracie Abrams, OWENN, MUNA, and girl in red. Sabrina Carpenter is set to be her opening act in Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina.

At the moment, the plan is to close the US leg of the tour in Los Angeles in the SOFI Stadium on August 9th.

International Dates So Far

In early June, it was officially announced that Taylor Swift plans to extend her Eras Tour outside the USA via international set dates for Mexico and South America.

Here are the new dates and locations for the new international shows:

  • AUG 24 Mexico City, Mexico (guest Sabrina Carpenter)
  • AUG 25Mexico City, Mexico (guest Sabrina Carpenter)
  • AUG 26Mexico City, Mexico (guest Sabrina Carpenter)
  • NOV 9Buenos Aires, Argentina (guest Sabrina Carpenter)
  • NOV 10Buenos Aires, Argentina (guest Sabrina Carpenter)
  • NOV 11Buenos Aires, Argentina (guest Sabrina Carpenter)
  • NOV 18Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (guest Sabrina Carpenter)
  • NOV 25São Paulo, Brazil (guest Sabrina Carpenter)
  • NOV 26São Paulo, Brazil (guest Sabrina Carpenter)

You can see the details for every show and purchase all tickets for The Eras Tour right HERE.

It is not yet known whether she would add new shows between August and November. However, the official website states that additional international dates for upcoming Eras concerts are yet to be announced, which means Swift is not done touring in celebration of her previous albums.

But stay tuned! We will keep you posted and update our information as soon as more international concert shows are announced. For more interesting concerts and shows that you can enjoy this summer in your country, please check out our full event list.

Best Teams to Watch in MLB 2023 – Top 5 Most Watchable Teams

26th May 2023 | Category: Sports

If you’re buying tickets for any MLB 2023 series, you never quite know what you’re going to get. “Like a box of chocolates”, as one movie famously put it. You may be in for the show of a lifetime, or you may just bear witness to a slow-burn drag of a game in which the hot dogs are the most interesting part. It’s part of the charm of baseball, we suppose.

But what if there was a way to game the system? What if you could find MLB matches in 2023 that have the biggest shot at being interesting, exciting, or otherwise a treat to watch?

That’s our mission today. We initially considered listing must-watch series for the season, but that may just be too unpredictable. Instead, we’ll rely on our knowledge of team lineups, results, and playstyles to bring you a list of the best baseball teams to watch in 2023.

Obviously, the rankings are based on “watchability”, which is obviously not an exact science. We’re not ranking teams in terms of form, quality, or the chances of success – merely how exciting we believe they’ll be to watch in the season going forward.

If that’s clear, we can finally move on to the list itself!

New York Mets

We’ll kick things off with an obvious pick. Not only are the Mets one of the favorites to take the World Series, but the ridiculous amount of funding paints them as rather desperate to bring the title back to Queens. Moreover, they’re facing huge expectations – for better or worse. Chairman Steve Cohen made sure that the massive $336 million bankroll goes towards a star-studded roster that is sure to catch a lot of attention.

Despite losing Diaz and deGrom, the path for the Mets going forward is going to be explosive one – one way or another. They’ll either shine brighter than they have in years or crash and burn spectacularly. Either way, we’re in for a show!

Philadelphia Phillies

Where the Mets are seen as favorites, the Phillies are just widely considered to be fun to watch. Plain and simple.

This has a lot to do with an eclectic lineup made up of players like T. Realmuto, Kyle Schwarber and Trea Turner. The good news is that all three will still be with the fightin’ fills. The bad news is that their performance in the season so far has been rather lacking.

Still, win or lose, the Phillies always seem to put up a good fight, which is what this list is all about. Beloved by fans and valued by tipsters, the Phillies are a must-watch squad for any true baseball fan.

San Diego Padres

The Padres and their ongoing rivalry with the Dodgers are always some of the most-discussed topics among baseball fans. The ball seems to be firmly in LA’s court with a 5-win streak, so most tipsters doubt the Padres will be able to finish ahead. However, in our opinion (and the opinion of many other fans of analysts) they tend to put on a much better show than their more successful counterparts.

Putting aside the divisional rut, the Padres played around with their lineup quite a bit this year. The management made some unexpected calls, limiting their choice of pitchers but investing in picks like Soto and Bogaerts. It will be interesting to see how it will all play out, and we have no doubts the fans are in for a grand old show.

Atlanta Braves

We don’t want this list to just be a rundown of MLB 2023 favorites, but we wouldn’t be doing anyone any favors by omitting the Braves. The fact is that the amount of talent behind the current lineup is simply insane. Would we say Atlanta is more watchable then the Mets? Probably not. But they’re also a uniquely talented squad thanks to big shake-ups in the runup to the season.

We won’t spend too much time analyzing the team’s performance – the divisional success or the World Series slumps. We will just say to keep an eye on Atlanta, the several rising starts in its roster, and the player-driven approach to strategy.

Seattle Mariners

Despite what the previous entries on this list may have you believe, we’re not ranking the best-performing teams here. Our excuse is that better play is better to watch.

Still, we’ll round things off with a team that shines through on sheer likeability. Sure, the M’s aren’t exactly in strong form, boasting the longest drought in World Series appearances in recent memory. Despite all of that, the Mariners regularly appear in some of the most-acclaimed matches in any given MLB season. If you need evidence, we’ll point you towards the closing game of the 2022 post-season. Despite losing to Houston, the bout was a 6-hour spectacle that had the whole house on their feet.

In short, the Mariners have always been a crowd darling, and you need only visit a single game to find out why.

New Madonna Tour – Locations, Dates, and Tickets

8th May 2023 | Category: Concerts

New Madonna Tour – Locations, Dates, and Tickets

As some of you may have heard, living legend Madonna is planning a sort of tour de force. Announced as the biggest production in the singer’s impressive career(which says a lot), this upcoming concert tour is a sort of celebration of her long and prolific career.

The latest Madonna tour plans to incorporate songs from all points in her career – from the early days to the latest Madame X album. All in all, it’s turning out to be one of the most highly-anticipated music events in recent history.

Here’s a short breakdown of the Madonna Celebration tour and what you can expect.

Basic Info

Let’s get the key information out of the way first. The new Madonna tour was announced back in January 2023 with more than 100 dates and venues across the globe.

The tour is divided into three legs, so to speak. The first one is held throughout North America, including the US and Canada. It will start on July 15 in Vancouver, progress throughout most of the US, and end on October 8 in Las Vegas. There are more North American dates available, mind you – bear with us for a second.

The second leg, which features considerably fewer dates, will kick off in London and storm through continental Europe. It starts on October 14 in London’s O2 Arena, goes through the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Denmark, and Portugal (not in that order), after which Madonna will loop back around to London.

Finally, the Celebration tour will head back to North America for a victory lap of sorts. The third and final leg of the tour kicks off in Brooklyn on December 27, after which it will progress for another 18 shows, culminating in a 4-show extravaganza in Mexico City.

Listing all of the dates and locations would be a bit overwhelming, but you get the idea. It’s a massive series of events spanning half the globe, and that’s including plenty of return locations.

Venues and Tickets

Some of the shows are already sold out, so get the tickets while you can!

About the Celebration Tour

Madonna herself announced the tour by saying “I am excited to explore as many songs as possible, in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for”.

So what does that mean for the upcoming concerts?

Well, two things, both of which are a sort of landmark for the acclaimed artist.

First of all, this will be her first tour that isn’t promoting a specific album or release. Considering we’re talking about someone with thousands of shows and more than a dozen world tours, it’s important to note that the set list will be drawn from her entire career.

Secondly, it’s the first tour ostensibly focused on Madonna’s greatest hits. Of course, this doesn’t really narrow the set list down. With more than 63 Top 10 charting hits over the decades, there sure are plenty of options for what fans will be able to see and hear.

Either way, we can expect one thing for certain – the tour will eponymously be a celebration of more than 40 years in the music industry. It will offer a sort of trip down memory lane and a look back at everything Madonna was to different people as her career progressed.

Of course, this does raise a few questions about the actual style and feel of the show. Madonna has continued to reinvent herself time and time again throughout the decades. She was so many things to so many groups that it seems difficult to wrap it all up in a single, digestible experience.

We guess we’ll just have to wait and see how the Queen of Pop will format her great return.


Best Music Festivals to Visit in Summer 2023

24th April 2023 | Category: Concerts

Want to experience an unforgettable summer of music, fun, love, and good vibes? What you need is a good music festival – and we have some ideas about where you might want to go.

Summer is already coming up fast, and many of us are starting to think about how we might want to spend it. If you love live music shows, a festival is a perfect place to spend your well-earned free time.

However, a good festival is so much more than just the stage shows. The best festivals offer an incredible experience both on and off the stage. MEeting new people, enjoying the sights, sounds, and tastes you might not have otherwise – that’s what it’s all about. As such, our list of top festivals for summer 2023 is not just about the lineups and performances. It’s also about a transcendent experience that adds up to more than the sum of its parts.

Without further ado, here are our recommendations for festivals to see in 2023.

Governors Ball Music Festival

New York City’s most acclaimed festival quickly rose through the ranks to become on of NYC’s most highly-anticipated events. That says a lot if we’re talking about the Big Apple. Launched in 2011, the festival features an array of genres and styles of music, including rock, electronic, hip-hop, indie, Americana, pop, folk, and more. Your time there can be further improved by some of New York’s acclaimed food trucks, making the Ball a feast for all senses.

There’s a reason we put the Governors Ball on our list first, too – and it’s not just because we like it. the 2023 lineup for this music fest is truly massive, so we can describe it as the most accessible. Ffeaturing acts like Lizzo and Kendrick Lamar, it brings to bear some of the heaviest hitters in the world. More than 50 acts are set to take the stage this time around, so you best be ready for an incredible experience.

Governors Ball Music Dates & Tickets

June 9 – June 11, Flushing Meadows – Corona Park, New York NY

Three-day runtime with options for daily tickets

Pitchfork Music Festival

Pitchfork is a world-renowned music publication that has been at the forefront of pop culture for as long as the internet has been around. Back in 2006, the publication organized its own live music festival, spearheaded by chart-topping acts and a promise to do things differently. Specifically, PMF is billed as all about the music. The lineup is decided by critics and audiences, not a bunch of suits in a grey conference room. That’s the pitch, at least – we’ll leave it up to you to agree or not.

Either way, the 2023 iteration of the Pitchfork Music Festival managed to bring to bear a worthwhile lineup that fans of indie and alternative jams are going to adore. Names like Big Thief, Killer Mike, and Bon Iver should give you an idea about the kind of music you can expect. These are just the headliners, though, and many would agree that the Pitchfork Music Festival is all about the underground.

Pitchfork Music Festival Dates & Tickets

July 21 – July 23, Union Park, Chicago IL

Three-day runtime with options for daily tickets.

When We Were Young

Pop Punk is going through a sort of renaissance. Bands like Green DAy and Blink 182 used to be consistent chart-toppers in the 90s and early 2000s, and they still hold a special place in the hearts of millions of fans. If you’re one of us millenials who would like nothing better than a chance to revisit the glory days, well, someone made a festival for us.

The above pitch kind of makes it sound like When We Were Young is a gathering of once-great acts, but nothing could be further from the truth. Although the ‘scene’ is no longer with us, these performers are still at the top of their game. The aforemetnioned Green Day and Blink 182 are headlining the second anual festival, along with The Offspring, 30 Seconds to Mars, Good Charlotte, and many more!

That said, this event is a bit outside the scope of “summer.” Still, it hit us in the nostalgia so hard that we just had to include it!

When We Were Young Dates & Tickets

October 21 – October 22, LAs Vegas Festival Grounds, Las Vegas NA

Two-day runtime with options for daily tickets.

Remember what things were like When You Were Young – get your tickets now!


A few months back when all the big-ticket US festivals were announcing their lineups, one major ferstival stood out with it’s incredible yet ecletic roster. Lollapalooza is an event that needs no introduction, so we won’t waste your time with one.

The 1975, Kendrick Lamar, Red Hot Chili Pepers, Karen G, Billie Eilish… Have we caught your attention yet? No? Well how about more than 70 other acts covering almost every major genre and style under the sun. From folk and pop to punk and hip hop, Lollapalooza has a something for everyone – which is how it caught our attention in the first place.

Best Musicals to See in February 2023

8th February 2023 | Category: Theater

Every season is the perfect time to enjoy some musical theatre. And with the holidays slowly winding down Valentine’s Day just around the corner, a musical show is just what the doctor ordered to stave off those winter chills.

From Broadway to London’s East End, great musical theatre can be found anywhere you look. However, the best musicals to see in February 2023 are not always on the big, famous stages. It takes a little digging sometimes, and we’re here to help you decide what, where, and when to see.

Here’s our list of top musicals in 2023.

Phantom of the Opera

We’ll start with a timeless classic that has been a staple musical in theatres across the globe for decades now. If you’ve never seen the Phantom on the big stage before, you’ll be doing yourself a favour if you get your tickets on time. Even if you have, it never hurts to freshen up – especially with the incredible productions we’ll have a chance to see throughout early 2023.

If you’ve (somehow) not familiar with it, the Phantom of the Opera follows the story of a young soprano and her obsession with a mysterious stranger. The piece holds the record for being the longest-running show in Broadway history. However, it first premiered in 1986 at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London. Which is exactly where you’ll be able to see it.

Missing it will be heard, too – shows are scheduled to continue until September! Click here to see which dates are available and purchase tickets on time.

If you happen to live across the pond – no worries. New Tork’s Majesty Theater has also scheduled regular showings of Phantom of the Opera until mid-April. Get your tickets here!

Phantom of the Opera London Dates:

February 6 – September 30

Shows take place in irregular intervals – almost every day, but with some exceptions due to conflicting schedules. Check the available tickets for more info.

Funny Girl

We’ll carry on our list with another 60s classic that you don’t want to miss. Based loosely on the biography of a vaudeville entertainer, Funny Girl is an iconic tale of a star’s rise. It includes hits such as ‘Don’t Rain on My Parade’ and ‘People’, which have gone on to find acclaim far beyond Broadway.

We could go on to wax poetic about Funny Girl’s many successes and accolades. We really don’t see much need, though. If you’re into musicals, you know of Funny Gitl, and the Micheal Mayer-led production is well worth your attention. If you’re just getting into the world of the Great White Way, the show is even more of a must-see. Click here to find out what your ticket options are!

Funny Girl Broadway Dates

February 5 – May 28

Performed every day barring Mondays.

Standing at the Sky’s Edge

If you’re looking for something a bit more modern, Londoners have a great chance to see the acclaimed Standing at the Sky’s Edge.

Hailing from Sheffield and created by Richard Hawley and Chris Bush, this musical follows the stories of three generations of Sheffield Park’s Hill Estate. Its premiere had critics and fans clamouring for more, and it was scheduled to transfer to the Royal National Theatre back in 2020. The lockdown killed any hopes of that at the time, but it seems the transfer is finally happening.

This means that this is a unique two-month opportunity to see one of the best musicals in 2023. Get your tickets now and find out why the rave reviews are right.

Standing at the Sky’s Edge Dates

February 9 – March 25

Only shown at the National Theatre.

The Lion King

Diesney’s iconic tale is about to see a return to the theatres across the US. Following the release of the long-awaited live-action film remake, Disney decided to follow it up with a series of musical shows throughout the country. If you haven’t had the chance to see it since the original premiere in 1997, now’s your chance!

Backed by the undeniable allure of the original animation’s story and with music written by none other than Elton John, the Lion King was a rather unsurprising success story. In the two and a half decades since it premiered, it has gone on to win the record for the highest-grossing musical play in history.

And while some may indignantly scoff at Disney taking over yet another area of art, the quality of the production is undeniable.

The Lion King musical in 2023 will be shown in theatres from New York to Hollywood! Click here to find your nearest theatre!

The Lion King Musical Dates

February 5 – May 2

The Academy of Music in Philadelphia, Minskoff Theatre in New York, Hollywood Pantages Theatre in LA, and many other locations are available.
