Walking with Dinosaurs the Arena Spectacular is roaring at Newark’s Prudential Center through July 27, 2014.

The show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. Walking with Dinosaurs has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs.  The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the Cretaceous period.  The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail.  It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.

The history of the world is played out with the splitting of the earth’s continents, and the transition from the arid desert of the Triassic period is given over to the lush green prairies and forces of the later Jurassic.  Oceans form, volcanoes erupt, a forest catches fire — all leading to the impact of the massive comet, which struck the earth, and forced the extinction of the dinosaurs.

Two-time Super Bowl MVP, Eli Manning, is undoubtedly the current face of the New York Giants, but which player next up to have that honor? A recent article by NFL media analyst, Bucky Brooks, dubbed Giants Pro Bowl Safety Antrel Rolle as the next face of the franchise.
“The Pro Bowl selection has become the defensive leader of the G-Men by being a consistent performer in the backend. He led the team in tackles one season ago while also notching six interceptions and two sacks.”

Brooks added, “Those numbers jump off the stat sheet at first glance, but it’s the on-field impact that truly allows him to be the vocal leader on the defensive side of the ball. With Rolle continuing to impress his teammates with his versatility, playmaking and performance, the wily veteran will continue to serve as one of Coughlin’s key lieutenants in New York.”

The best selection of Giants tickets is available on SelectATicket.com right now! Order your tickets to the home opener against the Cardinals, pick one of the big rivalry games like the Cowboys or Eagles or see if the Giants can contain RGIII on December 14.

Katy PerryThe weekly top 5 events list is out, take a look:

  1. NBA All Star Game
  2. Fleetwood Mac
  3. KISS & Def Leppard
  4. Katy Perry & Capital Cities
  5. New York Yankees

With all the talk about where free agents LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, among others, will land – the NBA off-season keeps the sport on the minds of fans year round. The NBA All Star Game being the top event at SelectATicket.com is further proof that NBA fans are already looking forward to and making plans for next season.

The return of Christine McVie to the lineup has given an added incentive for Fleetwood Mac fans to catch the band on tour this year. She has not played with them for over 15 years and the return of her work on the keyboards and of course her vocals will allow them to dust off some old gems and perform them the way fans remember them sounding.

One of the louder tours going on at the moment is KISS and Def Leppard. This concert will basically be a night of non-stop rock n roll classics cranking out from both bands.

Also making the list is Katy Perry who can’t seem to stop producing hit after hit and she’ll be joined by Capital Cities (“Safe and Sound”) for several shows on the tour before Kacey Musgraves takes over as the supporting act.

Finally, we have the New York Yankees in the 5th spot this week. With homestands coming up against the Red, Rangers and Blue Jays there’s a number of chances to see them this month.

A live performance of the 2014 Academy Award winner for the Best Animated Feature Film of the Year is coming to an ice rink near you.

The award-winning tale will be told live for the first time in this production, capturing the dynamic between two royal sisters, Anna and Elsa.  Anna, a girl with an extraordinary heart, embarks on an epic journey to find her sister, the magical Elsa, who is determined to remain secluded as she finally feels free to test the limits of her powers. Rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer Sven, the lovable and hilarious snowman Olaf and the mystical trolls help Anna along the way in this story about love conquering fear.  Audiences will get to sing along with such musical masterpieces as “Let it Go,” “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” and “Fixer Upper.”

“In our more than 30 years of producing Disney On Ice shows, Feld Entertainment has been waiting for a film like this,” says producer Nicole Feld.  “While it might seem obvious that Frozen is well suited for the ice, this Disney On Ice production will touch audiences emotionally through innovative show elements and world-class skating.”

For fans local to Select-A-Ticket’s New Jersey offices, Disney on Ice: Frozen will appear at the Prudential Center in Newark Nov. 19-23 and at the Izod Center in East Rutherford Nov. 25-30.

NY Red BullsThe New York Red Bulls faced the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium last night in a match which ended in a 2-2 tie.

The Red Bulls looked like they may be able to hold on and win this one but a penalty kick in the 82nd minute converted by Houston’s Brad Davis knotted the game at 2.

The Red Bulls now have 20 points and are seeded 5th in the Easter Conference.

Normally gaining a tie on the road isn’t so bad but the Red Bulls believe the handball called on Chris Duvall which gave Houston the game-tying penalty kick was a bad call. Replays seem to back that up as he used his shoulder to move the ball. However, what’s done is done and the Red Bulls now have to focus on their next game which is July 12th at home vs. the Columbus Crew.

The Red Bulls and Columbus currently have identical records at 4-8-5 so this match will have a direct and significant impact on the standings for both teams.

Red Bulls tickets remain available for this game and all matches at Red Bull Arena.
