One of the hottest concerts to hit New England this summer will surely by the royal couple of hip-hop, Jay-Z and Beyonce who are set to hit the stage at Gillette Stadium July 2nd, 2014. The “Mr. and Mrs. Carter tour” has been announced for 20 stadiums in North America starting in June and spanning through August.
This show should sell out in minutes (less than 15). Other artists have sold out Gillette Stadium in less time and with a duo like these two, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t sell out the 60,000+ stadium in minutes. The possibility of a second show is certainly in consideration, however, July 4th is already slated for Yankee Stadium in New York. That’s quite a 4th of July celebration.
Because of the magnitude of this tour, it’s expected that certain markets will have additional concerts after the original shows sell out. As a matter or fact, the New York Yankees will be on a road trip for over a week, leaving Yankee stadium wide open after the July 4th show.
Details for the July 2nd concert at Gillette Stadium are still being worked out. It is most likely going to be an 8:00 start with gates opening at 7:00. Standard Gillette Stadium rules apply so make sure you read the policies regarding bags, umbrellas, signs and such. NFL Stadiums have heightened security and they are strict regarding enforcing rules. Gillette Stadium has several large parking lots and because of its location, public transportation is limited. The commuter train (T) runs to Gillette Stadium but usually for Patriots games only.

It has already been confirmed that Garth Brooks will be going on a world tour. From open confessions in interviews, to a hat on the Tonight Show that says “Garth Brooks World Tour” it is no secret that Brooks will be going on a world tour in 2014. The question is when will he announce it and where will his tour begin. While it can be debated all day long when Garth will be announcing his tour, we can speculate on where his tour will start.
One option is that Garth begins his tour on the eastern side of the US and make his way across the top of the US and Canada until he hits California. From there he will hit all the southern cities making his way back towards the east. This is a popular trend in concert artists because it allows them to cover each major city in the US and Canada in an orderly fashion. That means there won’t be too much traveling between stops. If Garth goes this route then it is most likely that he will start his tour in New York or Boston.
A second option is that Garth will begin his tour where most of his fans are, in the south. Since Garth is such a popular artist it might not be a bad idea for him to begin his tour in the Southern states and work his way in the opposite direction. This way once he has completed his tour in America he could possibly be looking at more dates in the Southern states of the US. His music is so popular that it is entirely possible that he could sell out multiple events in the same city during different times of the year. With that being said we speculate that Garth could begin his tour in Nashville or even further south in Houston.
Singer and pop star, Katy Perry, is currently on her world tour, the Prismatic Tour. She recently announced dates in the US and Canada for this summer and will be performing in major cities around the US and Canada.
Katy Perry has scheduled several shows in Texas. Here are the Katy Perry concert dates in Texas in 2014.

The opening acts for the Katy Perry concerts in Texas are scheduled to be Tegan and Sara for all 4 dates but are subject to change. Concerts in Dallas start at 7:00 and the shows in Houston start at 7:30. The doors open approximately 1 hour before the show. Nearby parking garages, street parking and street lots are subject to availability so the earlier you arrive, the better odds of getting a good parking spot.

The rumor-mill is spinning out of control! What is going on with Garth Brooks?
He’s just sold out 5 shows in Dublin Ireland at a venue called Croke Park which holds 80,000 fans (400,000 total tickets sold) and also just performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno for Leno’s last song. Garth Brooks was sporting a Garth Brooks World Tour hat which pretty much was an obvious-subtle hint.
There is lots of talk about Garth Brooks announcing a full, 3 year world tour which would include Europe, North America, Australia, Asia and South America. Fans have patiently waited over 10 years for a tour from Garth. The best they’ve got were a few public appearances and a few live shows at the Wynn in Las Vegas in 2013.
In a video interview before a CBS broadcast of the love concert in Vegas, Brooks tip-toed around the question of a tour but confirmed that he is working on a tour. It’s expected that Garth Brooks will hit major markets and hot spots like Dallas, Nashville, Boston, Houston, Chicago and others as part of his North American Leg of his comeback tour.
Regardless of the venue, city and date, each show will sell out within minutes! (Source)
