I decided to start posting this info early every week. Every Friday in Weekend, I run a little "ticket news" box that gives music information about what concerts are going on sale this week. Many times seats become available that very morning, so there's not much notice. So anyway, here's the box appearing Friday:
Country fans should get excited: Brooks & Dunn is coming to the Dodge Music Center June 21, and the duo is bringing openers Rodney Atkins and James Otto. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday and will cost $34.25 for lawn, $59 for reserved seats.
A whole host are hard rock/metal bands invade the Dodge Music Center Aug. 16 when the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival starring Slipknot, Disturbed, Dragonforce, Mastodon, Five Finger Death Punch, Airbourne, 36 Crazy Fists, Underoath, Machine Head, Walls Of Jericho, Black Tide, Suicide Silence and The Red Chord comes to town. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday and will cost $55.75 for general admission pit, $55.75 and $45.75 for reserved, and $31.25 for lawn.
