Cardi B and Nicki Minaj to Headline BET Experience 2019

1st February 2019 | Category: Concerts

The 2019 BET Experience will be all about Cardi B and Nicki Minaj since the organizers announced they will both headline concerts at this year’s BET Experience in Los Angeles.

Tickets for the festival can be purchased here.

The female rappers will both headline concerts at the seventh annual BET Experience taking place in June but fortunately, they will headline the separate nights of this three-day event. Nicki Minaj will headline the first day, 21 June, followed with Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, Trippie Redd and BriSteves’ performances. Cardi B will take the stage on 22 June, along with Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby and City Girls.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are long-term opponents and their fight culminated with a physical fight at New York Fashion Week which started when Cardi reportedly threw a shoe at Minaj. The feud went on for months when each of the rappers used their interviews and social media to trash the other one but last fall they seem to give it a rest. Considering the ever-going rivalry and fight for the rap-throne, we can’t wait to see their performance that is bound to be mind-blowing.

Nicki Minaj released her fourth album Queen in 2018, with features from Eminem, Lil Wayne, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, and Future. She is kicking off her Nicki WRLD Tour in February when she will perform in 50 cities across Europe and North America. Minaj cancelled the North American leg of 2018 NICKIHNDRXX tour with the explanation she has to “reevaluate the elements of the production on the tour” and rehearse more before she hits the road. Dates have been rescheduled for May 2019 with Chun-Li instead of Future as the opening act.

Cardi B’s 2018 album Invasion of Privacy was a huge success with No.1 hits like “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It” featuring J Balvin and Bad Bunny. She pulled out of Bruno Mars’ extensive tour last summer after giving birth to her first child with the explanation she needs time to recover both physically and mentally. But now, she seems ready to rock her fans.

BET Experience is held days before the 2019 BET Awards, and will also include the BET Fan Fest at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The event will feature a celebrity basketball game, dodgeball game, hair and make-up lounges, gaming areas, meet-and-greets and much more.

The three-day pass for this amazing event can be bought here so don’t wait any longer.

Third Eye Blind and Jimmy Eat World Announce Co-headlining Summer Tour

28th January 2019 | Category: Concerts

Third Eye Blind and Jimmy Eat World will hit the road together this summer for the Summer Gods Tour. The co-headlining trek will hit 35 American cities between middle June and early August so buy your tickets on time.

Summer Gods Tour, produced by Live Nation, will kick off on 14 June at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and hit Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles and many more before it ends on 3 August at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, California.  Ra Ra Riot will appear on all shows as tour opener.

Third Eye Blind took a lot of time picking out the bands to play with them so touring in the summer “feels like more of a festival thing” Jenkins of Third Eye Blind said.

“We couldn’t be more excited to spend our 25th summer as a band touring the country of our birth to play music for our American fans!” says Jimmy Eat World, in a statement. “Thanks to Third Eye Blind for inviting us to be a part of this amazing tour. We can’t wait to hang out with our fans as well as making some new friends!”

Third Eye Blind is a San Francisco rock band that has sold around 12 million records since its inception in 1993. Third Eye Blind released their covers EP named Thanks For Everything that features renditions of songs by Queens of the Stone Age, Bon Iver and more back in August. Jimmy Eat World released two new songs “Love Never” and “Half Heart” following their 2016 LP Integrity Blues so the audience will enjoy both the new and old hits.

“The most scintillating, inspiring collective moments of my life have been outdoors in the summer exploding with music,” says Third Eye Blind frontman, Stephan Jenkins. “Those sensations travel from when I was a little kid and rock music was brand new to our last Summer Gods tour when everything is magically new again. I seek to create that exact blissed-out state of aliveness on tour this summer.”

As a huge fan of surfing, the band has dedicated to going green agenda years ago and making their tours ocean-friendly. The crew is bottle free since 2017 and this year they will be donating a part of ticket sales to a carbon offset program in Alaska to reduce carbon emissions caused by audience travel.
