Juan Gabriel

September 11, 2015

With six Grammy Awards, thousands of fans, and 30 million record sales behind him in his four decade long career, Juan Gabriel is still showing no signs of retiring from the music industry! A born entertainer, he began writing music when he was just a teenager and signed his first record deal aged just 21!

Kevin Hart

September 18, 2015

Kevin Hart is a Philly-born former shoe salesman who has become one of the funniest actor-comedians in America today. He has appeared in films such as The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Soul Plane, Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3, Along Came Polly, Scary Movie 4 and Death at a Funeral. His humor isn't for kids; this guy can curse for America. A lot of his material is drawn from his personal experiences with family, friends and loved ones, and his trademark catchphrase "All right, all right, all right" is a staple uttered by his fans across the country.

Ricky Martin

September 19, 2015

Puerto Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin grew up in the spotlight, from his early beginnings with the boy-band Menudo to a stellar solo career that has seen the sale of 85 million albums worldwide, most of those albums certified platinum, and a host of awards including a staggering 6 Grammy Awards, not to mention all those number 1 singles!

Def Leppard, Styx & Tesla

September 20, 2015

Titans of the 80's British Heavy-Metal revival and progenitors of contemporary Pop Metal Def Leppard have never let anything stand in their way, even their drummer Rick Allen losing an arm to a car accident. Overcoming this with a custom kit and a new style of drumming, the band surged on to create the album 'Hysteria', which hit 12 times platinum in US sales and sold over 20 million copies worldwide.

Foo Fighters

September 21-22, 2015

Hot on the heels of releasing their 14th studio album Sonic Highways, alt-metal favorites Foo Fighters are heading on a gigantic world tour in 2015, with at least 28 dates in North America. These guys plays hard, fast alt-metal rock without ever falling into its heavier counterpart. Enduring through the sheer strength of their back catalogue, coupled with sheer hard work recording innovative new albums (such as Wasting Light {2011}) and long touring sprees, it is no wonder that this hard-working band managed to escape the early 2000s purge of alt-rock bands that shone bright but burnt out fast.
