TSO, whose phenomena has grown year after year, has played over 1,500 shows for more than 10 million fans in the past 15 years, and quietly became one of the world’s biggest arena-rock acts. The unprecedented fan driven growth is a testament to TSO founder Paul O’Neill’s vision of “Rock Theater,” the perfect amalgamation of Broadway storytelling with the spectacle of rock, delighting audiences of all ages year after year.

During the final tour, audiences will get to experience the modern Charles Dickens-like classic, “The Lost Christmas Eve.” Following the 2012 premiere of this acclaimed rock opera, critics were raving, calling it “…a must see for any music lover,” “…a rock ‘n’ roll holiday celebration worth seeing,” and an “unrivaled spectacle of sight and sound.” “The Lost Christmas Eve” features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, R&B, and theatrical-styled music, with the story taking you on a journey into the “Capra-esque” world of TSO creator/producer, Paul O’Neill. The critically acclaimed rock opera encompasses a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral, and their respective inhabitants all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City. “The Lost Christmas Eve”, performed in its entirety for the final time, will feature the hit single “Wizards in Winter,” as well as longtime crowd favorites, “Christmas Nights in Blue” and “Siberian Sleigh Ride.” It will be followed by songs from last year’s EP release from Lava/Republic, “Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night),” classics from TSO’s debut album, “Christmas Eve & Other Stories” and the rest of the heralded catalogue of rock operas.

While off the road, TSO is constantly stockpiling new projects in their Rock Theater arsenal, including the rock operas “Gutter Ballet and the New York City Blues Express,” “Letters from the Labyrinth” and “Romanov: When Kings Must Whisper,” an epic story set amidst the Bolshevik Revolution.

Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music industry being regarded as a mix of The Who’s “Tommy,” Andrew Lloyd Weber’s musicals, and Pink Floyd’s expansive light show. Year after year, the group has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance, according to Pollstar magazine. Having played live to over one million fans each year, TSO saw a 15% increase in sales alone in 2012, transforming them into a year round tradition that’s here to stay.

Super Welterweight Boxing Match At The Amway Center

Amway Center

WHAT:

Super Welterweight Boxing Match

Three-Division world Champion Miguel Cotto vs. Two-Time World Title Challenger & Top-Five Contender Delvin Rodriguez

WHEN:

Saturday, October 5, 2013

WHERE:

Amway Center | Orlando, Florida

ON SALE:

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 | 10 a.m.

Twelve years after making his professional debut, three-division world champion and the Pride of Puerto Rico Miguel Cotto will make his Florida debut when he faces two-time world title challenger and current Top-Five contender Delvin Rodriguez  in a 12-round super welterweight battle.  Cotto vs. Rodriguez will take place Saturday, October 5, at the home of the Orlando Magic, Amway Center in Orlando, FL, which is hosting its first-ever professional boxing event.  Promoted by Miguel Cotto Promotions and Top Rank, in association with Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and Tecate, tickets to Cotto vs. Rodriguez go on sale Tuesday, July 30 at 10 a.m.

Cotto and Rodriguez boast a combined record of 65-10-3 (46 KOs) – a winning percentage of over 83% and a victory by knockout ratio of 71%.

“I am very happy to be back on October 5 and fighting in front of all the great fans of Orlando, Florida,” said Cotto.

“I’m going to go for the knockout,” said Rodriguez.  “I will take advantage of the biggest opportunity of my life.”

“Miguel Cotto has participated in some of boxing’s biggest events over the past 10 years,” said Todd duBoef, president of Top Rank. “His return to the ring on October 5 will be another electrifying night for the fans watching it live in Orlando and the boxing fans throughout the world.  Top Rank is thrilled to work with him and his promotional team on this event.”

“When Miguel Cotto is in the ring it is always exciting to watch. For us it is a great pleasure to present the return of one of boxing’s biggest stars to our great Puerto Rican community in Orlando and all the Latino fans of Florida.  It’ll be a great night for boxing,” said Héctor Soto, Vice President of Miguel Cotto Promotions.

“As Delvin’s promoter, it is an honor to have our boxer fight against Miguel Cotto, a true boxing legend,” said Joe DeGuardia, president of Star Boxing.  “As a boxing aficionado, I am excited to see this fight, which is one that real boxing fans are enthusiastic about.  I expect a thrilling battle of will and skill between these two veteran warriors.”

“Landing another high-profile event like this is a knockout for the City of Orlando in terms of entertainment and economic impact,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “Whether it’s Wrestlemania, the NBA All-Star game or NCAA Championship games, Orlando has proven that we have what it takes to host top-tier sporting events.  We look forward to hosting what will be a thrilling fight and once again showcasing Orlando to a worldwide audience.”

“Today’s announcement is particularly exciting because it is our first professional boxing match and an internationally televised one,” said Orlando Venues Executive Director Allen Johnson. “This is yet another milestone for Amway Center and illustrates our commitment to host diverse events that cater to the greater Central Florida community and beyond.”

Cotto (37-4, 30 KOs), from Caguas, Puerto Rico, has sold more fight tickets at the “Mecca of Boxing,” Madison Square Garden, than any other fighter in this millennium.  He held a world title every year from 2004 to 2012 while winning 17 of the 21 world championship bouts he has fought. Puerto Rico’s most exciting fighter and one of its greatest, Cotto held the World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior welterweight crown from 2004-2006, successfully defending it six times before vacating it to capture the World Boxing Association (WBA) welterweight title at the end of 2006, a title he held for nearly as long.  After losing the WBA title to three-time world champion Antonio Margarito, arguably the fight of the year, in July 2008, Cotto won his second welterweight belt in February 2009, knocking out Michael Jennings in the fifth round to become the WBO welterweight champion.  He lost the title in his second defense, November 2009, to Manny Pacquiao.  Cotto captured the WBA super welterweight title June 5, 2010, in the first fight ever held at the new Yankee Stadium, by stopping undefeated defending champion Yuri Foreman.  He successfully defended that title twice in 2011, knocking out former world champion Ricardo Mayorga and Margarito in the 12th and 10th rounds, respectively.  He lost his world championship belt on May 5, 2012, losing an exciting and close decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a title unification bout in what many consider one of  the toughest fights of Mayweather’s career.  In his last fight, on December 1, Cotto unsuccessfully challenged WBA super welterweight champion Austin Trout, losing a 12-round decision.  Notable scalps on Cotto’s belt include world champions, “Sugar” Shane Mosley, Zab Judah, Joshua Clottey, Paulie Malignaggi and Demarcus Corley.

Rodriguez (28-6-3, 16 KOs), a native of the Dominican Republic, now fighting out of Danbury, Conn., first came into prominence by knocking out Luis Hernandez (20-2, 13 KOs) in the third round of their 2006 fight to capture the USBA welterweight title.  Victories over Oscar Diaz (26-2, 12 KOs) and  Shamone Alvarez (20-1, 11 KOs), led to Rodriguez’s first title shot, against Isaac Hlatshwayo, for the vacant International Boxing Federation (IBF) welterweight crown in 2009, where Rodriguez lost a close split decision.  Rodriguez’s debut in the super welterweight division was in 2011’s “Fight of Year,” a Draw against Pawel Wolak (29-1, 19 KOs) that had fans on their feet as the two gladiators went toe-to-toe for 12 brutally exquisite rounds.  After winning the rematch against Wolak at the end of that same year,  Rodriguez unsuccessfully challenged undefeated  WBA super welterweight champion Austin Trout in 2012, losing a 12-round decision.  He enters this fight having knocked out previously undefeated George Tahdooahnippah (31-0, 23 KOs) and Freddy Hernandez (30-4, 20 KOs) in the sixth and eighth rounds, in February and May of this year, respectively.  He is currently world-rated No. 4 by the WBO.

Paul McCartney “Out There” Tour coming to Orlando’s Amway Center

Amway

Paul McCartney Adds Orlando

to All-New 2013″Out There” Tour

May 18, 2013 at Amway Center in Orlando, FL

Tickets On Sale – Friday, April 12, 2013 at 10:00 am

 

Paul McCartney has added more U.S. dates to his all-new 2013 “Out There” tour and will play the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida on May 18.

As previously announced, the tour will also be making stops May 22 in Austin, Texas at the Frank Erwin Center, May 29 in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the BOK Center, July 9 in Boston, Massachusetts at Fenway Park and July 12 in Washington DC at Nationals Ballpark.

Tickets to the newly-announced show will go on sale beginning Friday, April 12 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com. American Express® Cardmembers can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, April 9 at 10 a.m. through Thursday, April 11 at 10 p.m.  All times local.

Paul McCartney’s “Out There” tour is a brand new, never-before-seen production.  The tour will feature hours of material from the most beloved catalog in popular music, with McCartney performing songs spanning his entire career–as a solo artist, member of Wings and of course The Beatles.

Paul McCartney

The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity. For approximately three hours, many of the greatest moments of the last 50 years of musical history–not to mention the soundtracks of entire lives–are magically brought to life as only McCartney’s can do.  Last year marked 40 years since McCartney’s premiere tour as a solo artist and these past four decades have seen him play in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow’s Red Square, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people and even a performance beamed into outer space.  Having played with his peerless band of Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens (keyboards), Rusty Anderson (guitar), Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums) and Brian Ray (bass/guitar) for over ten years, Paul never disappoints.

McCartney is throwing himself into 2013 with full force following yet another landmark year in 2012, which saw him conclude his record-breaking “On The Run” tour, release his Grammy®-winning “Kisses On The Bottom” album, accept a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, play at both the Diamond Jubilee and Olympics Opening Ceremony, be named MusiCares Person of the Year and headline 12-12-12 The Concert For Sandy Relief–to highlight just a few memorable moments. With the “Out There'” tour and a new studio album in the works, it looks like 2013 will show no signs of McCartney slowing down.

The “Out There” tour will see Paul and his band travel the world throughout the year, visiting both places of historical significance to McCartney and new spots for the very first time. Further announcements and dates will be added in the coming weeks.

Stay tuned to www.paulmccartney.com for official news and updates.

Bruno Mars comes to Orlando for the Moonshine Jungle World Tour!

OrlandoVenues2

 

 

WHAT:          BRUNO MARS | THE MOONSHINE JUNGLE WORLD TOUR

                        

WHEN:          TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2013

 

WHERE:       AMWAY CENTER | ORLANDO, FLORIDA

 

ON SALE:     FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2013 | 10 A.M.

 

ORLANDO, FLORIDA [March 6, 2013] Atlantic recording artist Bruno Mars has unveiled details of his hugely anticipated world tour.  The North American leg of The Moonshine Jungle World Tour gets underway on June 22 and continues through August.  Special guests on select dates of the North American leg include Ellie Goulding and newly signed Elektra artist Fitz & The Tantrums.  Tickets for Bruno Mars at Amway Center in Orlando on August 27 go on sale March 15 at 10 a.m.

 

The announcement of The Moonshine Jungle World Tour comes just as “When I Was Your Man,” the latest single from Mars’ just-released sophomore album “Unorthodox Jukebox” has exploded into the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100.  It joins the album’s blockbuster first single “Locked Out Of Heaven” which recently spent six consecutive weeks atop the Hot 100 chart.  The immediate success of “When I Was Your Man,” which also earned honors as the week’s top Streaming Gainer and Airplay Gainer, marks the Grammy® 10th consecutive single to hit the top 10.  Mars continues his already-established status as the male artist with the longest streak of top 10 hits as a performer since his debut.  Furthermore, the single’s chart ascension places Mars in the history books as the first male artist to simultaneously place two titles in the top 10 since his own “Grenade” and “Just The Way You Are” doubled up on the chart in December 2010/January 2011.
As its title suggests, “Unorthodox Jukebox” once again sees Mars melding a multitude of musical approaches to create his own distinctive sound.  Executive produced by The Smeezingtons, the hit-making production team comprised of Mars, Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine, the collection also features contributions from top producers such as Jeff Bhasker (fun., Kanye West, Jay-Z), Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Lil Wayne, Black Lips) and Diplo (M.I.A, Usher).

 

“Unorthodox Jukebox” made a stunning SoundScan/Billboard 200 debut upon its release last year, entering the chart at number two with sales in excess of 192,000; the singer/songwriter/producer/musician’s highest first week sales debut thus far.  In addition, the album exploded to the top spot on the British album charts, making history as the United Kingdom’s fastest selling solo album of 2012.  The phenomenal success of “Unorthodox Jukebox” follows the equivalent popularity of Mars’ now classic 2010 debut, “Doo-Wops & Hooligans,” which proved the United Kingdom’s third best-selling album of 2011 and also entered the charts at number one.

 

Mars is undoubtedly among contemporary pop’s most gifted and compelling artists.  And with global sales currently certified at 40x-platinum and over 50 million singles sold worldwide, the 14-time Grammy®Award nominee has fully proven himself as a true superstar.

He has broken all classical concert records, packing stadiums and arenas with more than 700,000 adoring fans each year. Rieu has sold more than 32 million albums globally and received 243 platinum awards for his albums. With his natural charisma, Rieu conducts his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra and plays his 1,732 Stradivarius violin to create a celebratory atmosphere.

“Every night when I play around the whole world, I’m able to witness what the waltz does with the audience. People get out of their seats and waltz in the aisles spontaneously. They sing, they smile and for a moment they forget all their worries and are happy. That is why this tour is an ode to the waltz!” says Rieu.

André Rieu

More than waltzes
Sure, the maestro and his orchestra will perform beautiful waltzes on this tour, but the concerts are much more than that. From famous Viennese operettas to film scores, spirituals to musicals and from folk songs to marches; Rieu’s concerts are a perfect mix of thrilling, romantic, festive and emotional melodies combined with surprises, balloons, beautiful soloists and of course, Rieu’s great sense of humor.

A record breaking 2012
2012 was a very successful year for the violinist. Rieu gave a record breaking series of 30 sold-out concerts in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He won a Classic BRIT award for his album “And The Waltz Goes On” and was nominated for a prestigious Mexican Luna award. With his first tour in Brazil, Rieu reached the number one position in Pollstar’s Box Office Chart of highest grossing tours in July. Leaving behind artists like Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, Radiohead, Coldplay, Celine Dion, The Black Keys and Pearl Jam.

On October 30, Rieu’s record company, Universal Music released Home For The Holidays on CD, DVD and Blu-ray™.
