beyonce-jay-z-gillette-stadiumOne 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.

Garth BrooksThe 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)

Gillette-Stadium-ConcertsGillette Stadium may be known for it’s sports events (New England Patriots, UMass Minutemen football and New England Revolution), but it is also becoming very well known for it’s concerts during the summer.  While the Patriots are in their off-season and the Revolution are not occupying the stadium, the venue books many large-scale, impressive concerts.

This weekend, Taylor Swift will be performing 2 sold out concerts at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.  Last weekend, it was Bon Jovi that performed in front of a sold out crowd at Gillette Stadium.  This August, Kenny Chesney will also be performing 2 sold out concerts at Gillette Stadium (with Eric Church, Eli Young Band, and Kacey Musgraves).

In past years, many more great acts have performed at Gillette Stadium including Bruce Springsteen, Toby Keith, U2, Elton John (with Billy Joel), Carrie Underwood and more.  Taylor Swift has performed at Gillette Stadium many times before and she has enjoyed performing in Foxborough, MA.

Whether you’re traveling to Gillette Stadium for a Patriots game or a sold out concert at Gillette Stadium, you’re going to need tickets for the show.  You can purchase tickets for events at Gillette Stadium online at a premium Foxborough ticket broker like FoxboroTicketKing.com.
