For a long time rap music has been a genre full of feuds. Two artists can grow in fame and other successes through their music and competition becomes unfriendly. Just take the tragic feud between Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. The two were the most iconic rappers of their time and they both suffered tragic ends.

But the times are changing. These days the two biggest rappers in the game are Kanye West and Jay-Z and there are by no means any signs of bad blood between the two. In fact, the two are releasing a new collaborative album at the end of August! The kings of rap decide to appropriately name the project “Watch the Throne.” The two have collaborated on tracks for each other’s albums in the past, but an entire album collaboration came unexpected to fans.

To make things even better Jay-Z and Kanye are kicking off a smash tour on September 22 and will keep it coming until November 3! Each show will be in a stadium setting, considering the huge followings that each artist has.. So be prepared to see a show that is sure to go down in history and hear some of your favorite collaborations by Yeezy and HOV!

At many concerts you know just what to expect. You know the genre and probably have a good idea of what songs will be played. But some artists are unpredictable. One of these artists is the great Elvis Costello! Costello, who has won countless Grammy’s for his contributions to music, plays songs of multiple genres, many of which he has helped create. But things get even more unpredictable!

For his 2011 tour, Elvis Costello has brought along his famous Spinning Wheel, a tool that guarantees a set with zero predictability! The wheel has names of his songs, which range from famous to obscure, and is spun by random fans in the crowd invited on stage to take a spin. The song that the wheel stops on is then played with breathtaking quality by the great music veteran.

Costello will be performing shows in the US until October 6, working his way up and down the east coast. If the you are graced with fortune from Costello’s wheel, perhaps you will hear songs like “Alison,” “Radio Radio,” and “Oliver’s Army..” Just be prepared to get dazzled by his onstage presence and know that the only thing to expect is the unexpected!

In the 1970s the songs of Steve Miller Band were everywhere! They were on the radio, in cars, and in our heads. Their string of hits made the group icons of the seventies and their most famous songs are still in the heads of kids today. And the best part is that the band that started in 1967 is still touring!

This summer the band is making its way to Bethlehem Pennsylvania’s Musikfest, a ten day music festival which never disappoints music fans with its lineup. This is not the band’s first time at Musikfest, but it is their first time with a brand new record! Miller 67, released “Bingo” in June, which hit the top of the Billboard Blues Album chart and has been well received by fans that have not heard new material in over 17 years!

The band will be at Bethlehem’s Sands Steel Stage on August 8th! You will hear his new material along with some of his classics, like “Take the Money and Run,” “Jungle Love,” “Joker,” and more! And don’t think that a 67 year-old man won’t play well! Steve Miller and his band remain rockin’ just like the day they started almost 45 years ago!

The leading lady who originally played the starring role in Mary Poppins has returned to grace the Broadway stage with her theatrical presence once again. Last Tuesday the Olivier Award winner, Laura Michelle Kelly, rejoined the cast of Mary Poppins at the New Amsterdam Theatre.

It seems as though the NFL’s four-month lockout will be coming to an end very quickly. Although the deal has not officially been done, the owners and players of the NFL are moving towards ending the lockout any day now.

On Tuesday a settlement draft was finalized in order to be presented to the players and owners on Wednesday. The legal teams worked diligently in order for the document to be able to be under review, and possibly approved. The deal will first be presented to a group of 13 men called the NFL Players Association executive committee, as well as the NFL labor committee and its 10 man backing.

The goal of Wednesday’s review is ultimately for the group to seek a deal approval from the NFL players. The agreement set forth would need a majority vote from close to 2,000 players in the National Football League.

Will the current deal in the works be sufficient enough to end the four month NFL lockout?

If so, the New York Giants will play their first preseason game  against the Carolina Panthers on August 13, 2011 at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC.

The game of baseball has changed over the years. We can’t deny it. Trades run rampant in the game and hometown heroes have become a rarity. However there are still players that play a long career in the same city and make that city very proud. Take Derek Jeter, for instance.

Jeter has been a Yankee since his debut in the MLB in 1995, in which he won Rookie of the Year. Now in this 2011 season, Jeter has achieved something that only 27 other players have done. He reached 3,000 career hits! In Yankee style, Jeter smashed his 3,000th with a home run. Even more impressive is the fact that he went 5 for 5 in the ballgame!

But another Yankee is closing in on the 3,000 mark as well. Alex Rodriquez is just over 200 hits short and with his career batting average, this should not take more than a season or two! The Yankees continue making history and thrilling audiences in the stands and at home with their excellent pitching staff as well as some of the best hitters in the league!

Don’t miss out on the chance to see a Yankee game this season! The Yankees will play their next game against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, July 16.

On Saturday, August 6, 2011 the Wells Fargo Center will present UFC 133. This will be the first time in two years that UFC will be returning to Philadelphia.

The fight card’s main event will feature former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans against former Penn State wrestler Phil Davis. Evans has a current MMA record of 15-1-1, and the rising UFC powerhouse Davis is packing a 9-0 MMA record. It is expected that the winner of this epic fight will get the chance to fight Jon Jones as soon as his health returns for that shot at the title.

Davis is a Pennsylvania native, originally from Harrisburg, PA, and has expressed his enthusiasm for being “back in Pennsylvania for the biggest fight” of his life. He admitted that,  ”It’s going to be good to be able to fight in front of all my family and friends.” He also said that ”Rashad Evans is the most dangerous opponent I’ve ever faced, but I don’t think for a minute that I’m outmatched. I’m going to take care of this fight and do whatever I have to do to beat Rashad.”

The UFC 133 fight card also consists of more intriguing fights between fierce competitors. Rich Franklin vs Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Vitor Belfort vs Yoshihiro Akiyama are just some of the match ups to be featured, and more are expected to be announced within the next few weeks.

UFC 133 will take place at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, August 6, 2011.

It’s been over 40 years and Elton John’s legendary career is showing no signs of slowing down! His experience in music composition and on the piano can only be matched by his voice, which has sung over 50 songs that have made it into the US Top 40 Singles. 7 of his albums also made it to number 1 on America’s Charts consecutively and he has sold over 250 million albums. One would argue that these stats warrant a happy retirement, but Sir Elton John begs to differ!

Elton is kicking off another tour in America starting September 3 and will play shows in New York, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, and Las Vegas. It is certainly hard to pick a favorite song but you can count on hearing some of the classics like, “Rocket Man,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Bennie and the Jets,” and “Tiny Dancer.” Elton’s concert theatrics diminish any wonder of why he is the most successful male solo artist in history! His veteran status is evident as he plays the piano with ease while he shows the energy of a young man just getting started.

Tickets will surely go fast so don’t miss your chance to see Sir Elton John in yet another tour! Get your Elton John Tickets form Select A Ticket now!

Trey Parker and Matt Stone have always had a strange relationship with the term “too far.” With “South Park,” their long running animated TV show on Comedy Central, Parker and Stone have sparked controversy over taboo topics and have often pushed the thin line of “too far” forward. The two have used humor to illuminate topics and issues that need serious attention while remarkably making audiences laugh. And though “South Park” remains one of TVs most popular shows Parker and Stone have taken their style elsewhere.

But now the dynamic duo have taken their talent elsewhere. With “The Book of Mormon” Stone and Parker co-create a dazzling piece of comedy about a pair of Mormon missionaries and their experiences in Uganda. The excellent laughs and dialogue are matched by Robert Lopez’ composition.

The play has won 9 Tony Awards, including one for best musical. Along with awards, “Mormon” has racked up great reviews all over the country!

Whether you are a fan of the always taboo-toppling “South Park” or you just love a great musical with a sense of humor come on out and see “The Book of Mormon” and you surely won’t regret the decision!
