9th December 2022 | Category: Concerts,Las Vegas,Sports,Theater

Many people struggle when it comes to buying the perfect gift for a loved one. However, the best gift is definitely an experience gift and what better way to offer a memorable one than buying a ticket for their favorite show, play, or even a game?

Tickets as gifts are perfect because the chances are the recipient will remember this experience for a long time, whether they went to a theatre show, or saw a baby giraffe. In addition, there are tickets that will work great for an individual, couple, or even a whole family you wish to surprise. In this article, we will provide a few great ticket gift ideas for a bunch of different occasions.

Ideal Tickets as Gift

Now, before you start searching for tickets online, it is important to consider whom you are buying the tickets for. This gift only works if you are well familiar with the recipient’s interests and hobbies. For example, if your loved one likes to listen to classical music, surely you will not surprise them with tickets to Billy Idol, or tickets for a similar concert. If you are struggling, then write down a list of their interests and hobbies and simply go from there.

Another thing to consider is your budget. You need to figure out how much you want to spend on this surprise gift before you start searching for tickets. You can find many great deals when you start shopping for tickets online. Remember, the price will also depend on the type of show or event you are looking for.

Also, you should try and gather information regarding the recipient’s schedule. It would not do well for you to gift them tickets for a show, or an event taking place when they are busy. Try consulting some of their friends and family they are close to or pry this information out of them yourself. But, be careful not to ruin the surprise.

Ticket Gift Ideas

There are many great choices out there when it comes to tickets you can surprise your loved ones with. As we have mentioned, make sure they are something your recipient is interested in, and start shopping! Here are some great ticket ideas you might wish to consider.

Zoo Tickets – although these tickets sound like the perfect gift for children, you would be surprised to know that many adults consider going to the zoo a great experience, as well. Simply, observe how their face lights up when they see a cute baby animal, and you will realise why these tickets are such a popular gift. It is also a great gift idea for the whole family, which they will remember forever.

Theatre Tickets – there are so, so many different shows out there. Whether it is a play, a musical, or a whole different kind of show, you can find theatre tickets that will satisfy all kinds of theatre goers.  Since it is the holiday season, you can find many great deals for the best Christmas shows during this month. If you know someone who enjoys the Xmas cheer, then this would be a great gift for them.

Concert Tickets – again, there is a great variety to choose from when it comes to concert tickets, as well. Whatever genre your friend is into – jazz, opera, rock, or pop, you can find tickets for it online. Many popular performers are currently on tours, such as Bad Bunny, or the popular The 1975 band.

Stand-Up Comedy Tickets – looking to enjoy a few laughs at a comedy show? Luckily, there are tons of different shows out there you can choose from. Whether your friend likes live stand-up performances or sitcom tapings and late-night shows, there is a range of events you can buy tickets online for. You can laugh your night away with Adam Sendler, Dave Chapelle, Chris Rock and many more. Either way, stand-up shows will definitely leave your friend feeling in a lighter spirit, which makes these tickets a great gift.

Sports Tickets – if it happens that you are buying a gift for a sports fan, you will find the perfect tickets in no time. Casual or superfan – catching a game live is a great experience for just about anyone. Check out the upcoming games that can be a part of your Christmas list, and simply pick whichever one your friend will like the most. NFL, NBA, or others, there are many great options out there.

Gallery and Museum Tickets – another great experience gift is a trip to a gallery or a museum. If you know someone who is an art aficionado, these tickets would make the perfect gift. What is more, many galleries and museums offer some form of a membership scheme that will allow your loved one to enjoy free entry a whole year round. It is truly a thoughtful gift, especially when you consider invites to private events and tours, which they will be able to attend as a member.

Now, that you have some great options, all you have to do is decide which tickets will be the perfect gift. Many of these tickets are available for purchase online, so you can organize your surprise from the comfort of your home. Just imagine the look on your friend’s face once you present them with tickets to their favorite show!

Billy Idol Returns to Las Vegas in November 2022

2nd November 2022 | Category: Las Vegas

Billy Idol and his back are coming to meet you at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in 2022! Fans will be able to witness the Billy Idol Las Vegas residency and hear the legendary New Wave musician perform all of his greatest hits. The singer will be performing music from across this storied career, from his early days fronting Generation X, to his days topping the charts with classics such as “Rebel Yell, “White Wedding”, and “Dancing with Myself”. It promises to be one of the most acclaimed rock shows on the Strip!

For forty-five years, Billy Idol has been one of the faces and voices of rock’n’roll, with an artistic resume that matches the brilliant light of the image. Fans have been following his career from his early days as the frontman for Generation X. Between 1977 and 1981 Billy emerged with three albums that truly reshaped the world of punk rock. In 1982, Billy embarked on a solo career that integrated clubland throb, wide-screen depth and drama, and rockabilly desperation. He truly became the synonym for rock’n’roll decadence combining bold and simple lines of punk.

Evidently, the singer shows no signs of stopping. Billy Idol is still making gliding, thumping, cinematic songs about sin, redemption and the love of rock’n’roll. All of this can be found on “The Roadside”, his first original release in seven years that came out in 2021.

The first show will take place on November 11th at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas and the last taking place on November 19th.

Show date and time: November 11th, 2022 – November 19th, 2022

Lady Gaga Announces 2022 Las Vegas Residency

10th February 2022 | Category: Las Vegas

Lady Gaga is returning for another run of her ‘Jazz & Piano’ residency in Las Vegas.

The ‘Chromatica’ singer will return to Sin City this spring for nine live concerts at the Park MGM hotel and casino. It comes after she performed a string of shows at the venue last October.

Gaga’s forthcoming stint is due to begin on April 14 and will run until May 1. 

According to a press release, Gaga’s 2022 ‘Jazz & Piano’ residency will see the star “celebrate her love of the Great American Songbook” while also showcasing her recent collaborative album with Tony Bennett, Love For Sale.

Gaga kicked off her ‘Jazz & Piano’ residency in January 2019, shortly after she began her simultaneous ‘Enigma’ run in December 2018. The pop star consistently performed both residencies throughout 2019, with some of her planned 2020 dates being cancelled due to the COVID pandemic.

In December, she accompanied Tony Bennett for the MTV Unplugged special for Love for Sale, one of his final performances before officially retiring due to his battle with Alzheimer’s. Gaga and Tony Bennett’s joint record Love For Sale is up for Album Of The Year at the Grammy Awards 2022. The pair’s track ‘I Get A Kick Out of You’ is in the running for Record Of The Year as well as Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

Gaga recently portrayed Patrizia Reggiani, who was convicted of hiring a hitman to murder her ex-husband and former head of the Gucci fashion house Maurizio Gucci (played by Adam Driver), in Ridley Scott’s biographical crime film titled House of Gucci. While the film received mixed reviews, critics praised Gaga’s performance as “note-perfect”. She earned nominations for the BAFTA Award, Critics’ Choice Award, Golden Globe Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress.

Last summer, she released Dawn of Chromatica: The Remix Album and a 10th-anniversary deluxe edition of Born This Way.

Tickets for Lady Gaga’s upcoming ‘Jazz & Piano’ residency dates can be found here.

KISS Confirm New Las Vegas Residency

12th August 2021 | Category: Las Vegas

KISS will kick off their long-rumored second Las Vegas residency at the end of the year.

The news of the band’s return to Las Vegas was broken by bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons during an interview at Animazing Gallery at The Venetian Grand Canal Shoppes, previewing his “ArtWorks” collection of paintings and sketches.

Asked if KISS will be coming back for a second Las Vegas residency, Simmons said: 

“We are. My favorite band are gonna be at Zappos [Theater at Planet Hollywood] in Las Vegas starting December 27. That’s right, even through New Year’s. And we’ll be here through February. But in the middle of the KISS tour that’s going around the world.”

The legendary rockers previously performed in Sin City in November 2014 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel And Casino. 

Speaking to Las Vegas Weekly, KISS frontman Paul Stanley stated about how the idea for the residency came about: 

“To spend as much time as we do in Vegas and to live as close as we do, the idea of doing a residency and leaving our stage setup, as opposed to breaking it down nightly, was really appealing.”

He continued: 

“We [had] just finished 42 cities and played for 600,000 people, but that meant that every night the show got disassembled and moved. There’s something appealing and challenging about building a set that doesn’t have to be moved. You don’t have to take into account the practicality of it, being able to be broken down constantly and reassembled. So this was something that we had wanted to do for quite a while; it was just a matter of making sure we found people who were in agreement on how to do it. The Joint was the natural place to do it.”

KISS are currently on the ‘End Of The Road’ farewell tour, which was originally scheduled to conclude on July 17, 2021 in New York City, but is now expected to last well into 2022.

Aerosmith UK and European Tour Postponed Until 2022

25th February 2021 | Category: Concerts,Las Vegas

Aerosmith have rescheduled their upcoming UK and European tour dates to 2022 due to COVID-19.

The legendary band had been hoping to tour in June of this year after their initial 2020 live plans were scrapped due to the worldwide health crisis.

Aerosmith’s forthcoming live dates in the UK and Europe have been pushed back for a second time, with the band now set to complete a series of shows in June and July 2022.

“Due to current conditions and for the safety of our fans, the 2021 European Tour has been rescheduled to 2022,” the band said in an official statement. “Please stay tuned for more information regarding the new dates or contact your point of purchase. All tickets will be valid for new dates.”

The rescheduled jaunt includes three UK dates in London, Manchester and Sheffield – details of which you can see here:

June 22 – The O2, London

June 28 – Manchester Arena, Manchester

July 1 – FlyDSA Arena, Sheffield

The upcoming run follows their ‘Deuces Are Wild’ Las Vegas residency.

The ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’ rockers last played this side of the pond in 2017, when they headlined Download Festival, in what was then-assumed to be their last-ever UK show.

Meanwhile, guitarist Joe Perry previously said he’d like to record a new album with Aerosmith “when the time is right”.

The 70-year-old musician said he was feeling inspired to make new music with the group – also including Joey Kramer, Brad Whitford, and Tom Hamilton – after his time in the studio with his Hollywood Vampires’ bandmates Alice Cooper and Johnny Depp working on their 2019 LP ‘Rise’.

He said at the time: “I had just finished working on my last solo album [before the new Hollywood Vampires album], so I had been in the studio for the three or four months before we started on the Vampires record.

“So I was already rolling in the studio. It doesn’t take much to get me going — I love to record. So, when the time is right, Aerosmith will come around to do another record.”

Aerosmith’s last studio album was 2012’s ‘Music from Another Dimension!’.
