The album’s first single and radio hit, “Jealous”, penned by Jonas and co-written by with Nolan Lambroza and Simon Wilcox is currently the number one most added song on Top 40 Radio. Jonas attributes the album’s darker overtones partially to the fact that while he was recording, he was also shooting the gritty television show “Kingdom” — a mixed martial arts family-drama that premiered on DirecTV’s Audience Network last October. Jonas plays an MMA prize fighter who holds his cards close to his chest.

Currently touring on their critically-acclaimed, On With The Show TourFleetwood Mac announced today that they have added 11 more dates including a stop in Orlando at the Amway Center on March 23. Tickets go on sale to the general public onMonday, December 15 at 10 a.m.

American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, December 9 at 10 a.m. through Sunday, December 14 at 10 p.m.

Fleetwood Mac Amway Center Tour Poster

Recent Reviews of Fleetwood Mac’s On With The Show Tour

“The principal emotion during the two and a half hour performance was the joy of having keyboardist, McVie back in this group . . . she brought high harmonies and several songs including, ‘Little Lies,’ ‘You Make Loving Fun’ and the closing ‘Songbird,’ back into the repertoire. Nicks hasn’t sounded this good since the early ’90’s. What a rhythm machine and what an articulate emotional guitarist Buckingham is.” ~ Minneapolis Star Tribune

“It’s still magical. Between Buckingham’s epic guitar solos, Mick Fleetwood’s massive drumming, John McVie’s strong bass work, Nicks’ patented spins to punctuate the lovely ‘Gypsy’ and Christine McVie’s lush vocals, Fleetwood Mac looked ready to take on what Buckingham has called the ‘next chapter.'” ~ Newsday

“Fleetwood Mac has the intricacy, elegance and underlying punch of its songs . . . ” ~ The New York Times

“With Christine’s songs back in the set, her calm, angular presence back on the stage, there was an undeniable feeling of rejuvenation. . . Fleetwood and John McVie on bass reminded concert-goers why the band is named for them. . . They still put a layer of muscle behind everything the band did. . . Buckingham was ferocious and tireless as lead guitar. This man is a vital musical presence – the soul of the band. Ditto for the vitality of Nicks, its cauldron-stirring spirit. . . Her showcase songs, ‘Landslide,’ ‘Gold Dust Woman,’ and especially ‘Silver Springs.’ were the night’s highlights.” ~ Chicago Tribune

“Drum solos can sometimes seem like an endurance test for a rock audience. It’s a rare joy to witness one wherein the drummer seems to experience as much giddy delight as Mick Fleetwood did. He whooped and howled, coaxing the crowd in call-and-response shouts while demonstrating his singular rhythmic sensibility.” 

~ Chicago Sun Times

Luke Bryan Coming To The Amway Center

 

Luke Bryan That's My Kind of Night Tour Amway Center

Luke Bryan | That’s My Kind of Night Tour

Amway Center | Orlando

February 21, 2015

Luke Bryan is extending his highly successful That’s My Kind of Night Tour with a winter leg in early 2015. The 2014 tour produced sell outs in each market it’s played including four sold-out stadium shows with crowds of 225,000 fans, two sold-out concerts in New York City’s Madison Square Garden, a string of double-play dates that broke venue attendance records and he became the debut country act to play Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Randy Houser and Dustin Lynch will open the 2015 winter leg of this tour. Bryan performs at the Amway Center in Orlando on Saturday, February 21. 

Bryan wrapped his sixth annual Farm Tour performing for over 110,000 fans during the eight-city run. A portion of the ticket proceeds are granted for local college scholarships (Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship) to students from a farming family within the communities the tour plays. Farm Tour 2014 was sponsored by 5-hour ENERGY®, Texaco, Cabela’s, Miller Lite and AT&T U-verse®.

Luke Bryan That's My Kind of Night Tour Amway Center

Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Bryan has sold nearly 6.4 million albums, 24.9 million digital tracks from his four studio albums and placed 11 singles at number one. Bryan’s current number one single, “Roller Coaster,” is from his “Crash My Party” album, which has sold over two million copies with 7.8 million digital downloads and was the best-selling country album in 2013. The album contains four additional number one hits including “That’s My Kind of Night,” “Crash My Party,” “Drink A Beer” and “Play It Again.” Bryan made history earlier this year by reaching the number one spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart with “Play It Again” and “This Is How We Roll.” Bryan became the first artist to ever hold the two top positions since the chart began in 1990.

httpv://youtu.be/crCqWK3SmRo

Bryan will perform on the upcoming 48th Annual Country Music Awards (CMA) on Wednesday, November 5 and is nominated for three CMA Awards – Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist and Album of the Year for “Crash My Party­.”

http://youtu.be/crCqWK3SmRo

Randy Houser took country fans and industry insiders by storm with the 2013 release of his Stoney Creek Records album, “How Country Feels.” Scoring three consecutive number one hits with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss,” Houser also earned an American Country Award for Most Played Radio Track: Male (“How Country Feels”) and his first number one as a songwriter (“Goodnight Kiss”). His new single, “Like A Cowboy,” is the fourth release from “How Country Feels” and was written by Houser and Brice Long. Previous successes include Houser’s 2009 top five hit, “Boots On” and debut power ballad, “Anything Goes.” For more information and the latest tour dates visit www.RandyHouser.com.

Broken Bow Records’ Dustin Lynch occupies a unique place in today’s country music. Thanks to his classic sensibilities, he’s been heralded as the heir to George Strait’s throne. Yet with one listen to his gold-selling, two-week number one smash, “Where It’s At,” it’s obvious the young Tennessee native knows how to combine his traditional influences with an edgy intensity that places him at the vanguard of today’s contemporary country scene. Since the release of his platinum-selling debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” Lynch has surpassed 17.9 million views on YouTube/VEVO and earned multiple awards show nominations. Lynch’s new album, “Where It’s At,” debuted as the number one-selling digital country album in the U.S. and earned over 500,000 Spotify streams in its first week alone. Rolling Stone Country named Lynch one of “The Best Things We Saw at CMA Music Fest 2014,” while he was heralded as one of country music’s ‘Sexiest Men of 2014’ in People CountryUs Weekly and Closer Weekly.  For more information visit http://www.dustinlynchmusic.com.

A look into Disney On Ice presents Frozen!

sisters Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

On Wednesday night, we had the opportunity to attend a media preview of the final rehearsal for Disney on Ice Presents Frozen, the day before the show went live here at the Amway Center before heading out on a tour of North America!

I was so excited to see this show, as I had thought about how cool Frozen would be if Disney On Ice featured it, ever since I saw Stars On Ice here at the Amway Center in April!

Olympic Skater Gracie Gold paid tribute to Queen Elsa when she performed one of her routines to Let It Go, dressed in a smaller tutu version of Elsa’s iconic blue dress!

gracie elsa Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

On our way in, we could purchase merchandise from the stands. There were not only programs available for $15, but there were items that I haven’t even noticed in any Disney Stores yet! Pull apart Olaf was very adorable, and they had many souvenir character cups, and plushes to buy! You could also get your photo taken with cardboard cut outs of Olaf, Elsa & Anna, and even have your face painted like them!

merch Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Centerfacepainting Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

The show started with some warm up acts getting us on our feet, my favorite part being when they guided everybody though a dance and told us thats how you “do the snowman”! It got everyone dancing and ready for the show!

Our hosts came out to greet us first, which of course, was Mickey and Minnie Mouse! They were dressed up in warm skiing style costumes, and I admit to being very jealous about Minnie’s pink Ugg style boots, very stylish!

They soon brought out other Disney characters including the Princesses and their Princes! Soon enough the whole stage was full of our beloved Disney Characters. What a way to kick off the night!

intro Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

We the story of Frozen started during the performance, and we got a glimpse into young sisters, Anna & Elsa, staying up playing, and of course building a snowman! Our first glimpse at Olaf!

True to the story, the scene ended with Anna being injured by her sister, so Elsa was told to “conceal, don’t feel” and hid away from Anna in her room.

snowman Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

We were then treated to Anna’s “For The First Time In Forever” scene, in which we first see her grown up and this is where we really see her shine! Her excitement is represented through her moves as she dances through the square looking forward to the Coronation, while Elsa looks on in the background forlornly.

first time Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

Our next scene was “Love Is An Open Door” where Anna meets Hans for the first time, I loved the huge clock they had in the background, and the fountain added a nice effect from the movie.

When the other dancers came out for the Coronation, the colors used on the ice were just stunning and added such a beautiful visual!

open door Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center coronation Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

After the coronation we saw Anna & Hans excitedly ask for, now Queen, Elsa’s permission to marry each other. Which she replied with the now famous “You can’t marry a man you JUST met!”, which as we know, led to the argument between the sisters, and Elsa’s mounting emotions coming through triggering her magic, accidentally setting off an eternal winter upon Arendelle. The pyrotechnics used during this scene really added to the dramatics and emotions of the moment.

marry? Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

The next scene led to a lot of cheers as we got to see grown up Kristoff and Sven, who we saw briefly at the beginning as their younger selves collecting their ice together.

Here we see them meet Anna, who persuades them to help her find her sister. However Anna is soon offended by Kristoff’s comments about Hans, “You mean to tell me you got engaged to someone you just met that day…didn’t your parents ever warn you about strangers?”.

sven Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

It felt like the next scene was the one that everyone had been waiting for, Elsa’s moment of freedom from the restrictions that she has lived under all her life. It was time for Elsa to “Let It Go”.

The lights and snow flurries used in this scene just added to the magic as she made her ice castle. It was truly so beautiful to see her surrounded by ice!

let it go Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

We were then introduced to a real life Olaf! Which was played out so brilliantly as it went from a full size Olaf, to being tossed around by Anna and Kristoff in pieces!

olaf Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway CenterThis then led to such a fun part of the show, Olaf performing his “In Summer” song, it was so fun watching the choreography to this part!Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center In summer

I loved the next scene that showed when Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven finally reaching Elsa’s ice castle.  Anna & Elsa began dancing around the ice together, during the “For The First Time In Forever (Reprise)” part, as Anna begs Elsa to come back home and restore summer in Arendelle.

But as we know, Elsa’s surprise leads her to accidentally freeze Anna’s heart, and she is prompted to order “Marshmallow” to drive them away.

Marshmallow was represented so well in this, he was huge and rolled out onto the ice with huge presence!

ice castle Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center marshmallow Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

After running away from Marshmallow, Kristoff takes Anna to  the Valley of the Living Rock, to meet his family, the Trolls. Where they mistake her for his girlfriend and “He’s A Bit Of A Fixer Upper” is performed, I loved it when all the trolls one by one linked arms and they rotated around Kristoff & Anna in the middle, it was so cute!

The scene ends with Anna being told that only an act of true love can save her from freezing and her untimely death.

So Kristoff takes Anna back to Arendelle so she may receive a kiss from Hans, her supposed true love!

trolls Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

Sadly this scene leads to use fining out Han’s true intentions, that he never loved Anna and was only using her to become the King of Arendelle!

But it did lead to a scene with a lot of cheers and “aw’s” when Olaf appears, lights a fire for Anna and speaks his famous line…”Some people are worth melting for!”. I think the whole stadium audience melted at this point too!

melting Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

Luckily, Elsa, who managed to escape her capture by Hans, tries to find Anna but is hunted down by Hans which leads Anna to leap to the rescue and put herself in between them, freezing to death before the sword hits her. As we all know, Anna’s sacrifice was an act of true love for her sister, and then she is soon revived.

true love Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

The last scenes in this show were my favorite, as not only do we see the party back at Arendelle once summer is restored, but ALL the characters from the beginning opening come back out to celebrate with the Frozen Characters!

I personally loved this part, as it felt like classic Disney, embracing and celebrating their most recent hit in Frozen!

finale Disney on Ice presents Frozen Amway Center

I certainly recommend seeing Disney on Ice presents Frozen to any Frozen fan, as it did not disappoint!

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.

Cirque du Soleil Vareki Amway Center

 

The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind.

4. Budget for the night

Amway Center WWE Live Event RAW SmackDown

The one thing that always catches us off guard when we attend things like this (or the circus) is how much we spend on extras like food and t-shirts at events!

To combat our food costs at events is to eat as closely as we can to the beginning of the event! WWE SmackDown at the Amway Center starts at 7:00 pm, so we will definitely be eating an early dinner!

We knew going in that we would all want a t-shirt to show our support for our favorite wrestler, so to get an idea of how much we would be spending we visited the WWE Shop online.

Amway Center WWE Live Event RAW SmackDown

5. To sign or not to sign that is the question…

WWE SmackDown Cena Signs Amway Center
Some of the signs from WWE RAW at the Amway Center

We have never brought a sign to a WWE event, however plenty of people do!

Just make sure that you are considerate if you do decide to bring a sign! You don’t want to block people’s view!

Also, know that your sign will be looked at upon arrival at the Amway Center to make sure that it is appropriate.

6. Fun WWE Extras

WWE RAW
At WWE RAW at the Amway Center, WWE NXT Superstars and Divas were signing for free!

To create a completely immersive experience for the audience, the set design will encompass the space from the ice surface up through the air, drawing everyone into the story and closer to the characters. Families will feel that they are trekking up to the North Mountains with Anna, Kristoff and Sven, and they will tangibly experience the storm inside Elsa.  Elsa’s magic will be enhanced by state-of-the art special effects while her emotions will be conveyed through powerful skating.
