“Like so many other proud Bostonians who have been extremely generous, we are honored to step up and do our part to help the victims and their families,” said Donnie Wahlberg, New Kids on the Block. “Hopefully this event will not only raise money, but spirits as well.”
“The One Fund event at the Garden this May 30th is destined to be a true Boston landmark. From the promoters to the sound & lights, to the performers and the Garden staff; everyone involved has responded from the heart in a spontaneous and simultaneous desire to be there, and to do what we can for the city we love. I am honored to be a part of it, and…I can’t wait” said James Taylor.

Mika will wrap up this special tour run at Royale in Boston this Saturday, April 13. Although tickets for the entire tour sold out in mere minutes, visit the Royale website for any last minute ticket releases.
Mika’s latest release The Origin of Love made its debut in late 2012 and features collaborations with artists including Nick Littlemore and Pharrell Williams, just to name a few.
Most concert-goers cannot point to a show in the last decade where they only paid twenty bucks to get in, but Kid Rock is hoping to change all that this summer with his new “$20 Best Night Eever” Tour featuring $20 ticket prices in all sections.
Kid Rock is breaking all the rules with the announcement of his U.S. Summer tour by offering tickets in all sections (reserved seats and lawn) at an affordable $20 price point, using paperless tickets where possible, and lowering prices on everything from parking to beer to merchandise for every show in every city.
Kid Rock spoke about his master plan, explaining, “Everyone knows the economy is still hurting people across the country, but I didn’t want that to be a reason why everyone couldn’t get out and enjoy themselves on a summer night. So we’re going to throw the biggest and best party ever, with prices across the board that are reasonable and transparent. No hidden fees, no gimmicks. We’re not sparing any expense on this tour, we’re going over the top as always, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to ask the fans to pay more. If this works we’re going to play to packed houses of fans who appreciate what we’re doing. If it doesn’t, might be a long summer. But someone has to go out there and fight these high prices and change things up, and I’m lucky enough that I can afford to take a pay cut. $20. Best night ever.”
Kid Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker Band will perform under the stars in amphitheaters this summer, beginning June 28th at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia through September 15th at the Live Nation Amphitheatre in Tampa, Florida. The tour, promoted by Live Nation, includes three special shows at the DTE Energy Music Theatre in Kid Rock’s hometown of Detroit, Michigan. Kool & The Gang, ZZ Top, and Uncle Kracker are confirmed as support on select dates. Tickets go on sale to the public in select markets beginning April 12th on LiveNation.com, check out all the dates below.
