Jason shares his Top Picks for upcoming live events.

1: NBA Finals

Things are really heating up between the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. We still don’t know which two teams will be going head-to-head to claim the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, but one thing is certain: it’s sure to be an exciting ride! Will the Spurs continue their incredible streak? Will Lebron finally get his championship? Watch the action unfold live with tickets from yours truly.

2: Belmont Stakes

Belmont has provided the stage for many dramatic finishes.  It is the last of the Triple Crown races and provides the possibility of seeing a Triple Crown winner.  Will I’ll Have Another be able to win at Belmont Stakes to make history, claiming the first Triple Crown victory in 34 years? Only time will tell.

3: US Open Tennis

The US Open is widely regarded as one of the most exciting tennis tournaments. The field of over 600 players always includes the top tennis players in the World. The tournament is played in the shadow of New York City, so Manhattan celebrities are a regular sight. This event makes frequent appearances on bucket lists everywhere.

4: Kevin Hart

Hart has turned into a major draw on the American comedy circuit, and he has also made his mark as an actor, writer and producer for myriad entertainment outlets. With new movies and stand-up specials on the horizon, fans will have plenty to look forward to and will no doubt leave the theater with abs sore from laughter.

5: The Book of Mormon

Jason and our CEO, Randy Cohen, were both wowed by this musical from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. But you don’t have to take our word for it. The production earned 14 nominations and 9 wins in the 2011 Tony Awards. The Drama League, New York Drama Critics, Outer Critics Circle, and Drama Desk all gave their top musical honors to The Book of Mormon.

Concerned about US Open Rainouts?

Do you want to go to the US Open Tennis tournament this year, but concerned you’ll buy tickets and the event will be rained out?  Don’t worry!  TicketCity has you covered.

Rain-out insurance can be purchased for 10% of the purchase price of your tickets.  If you purchase the rain-out insurance, you will be refunded the total ticket purchase price (minus the insurance fee) if the session is rained out.

If you do not purchase rain-out insurance, you will be given an in-store credit equal to the face value of the ticket (which is often below the purchase price).

So rain out insurance is a good idea!  You can add rain-out insurance to your order up to 72 hours before the session begins.

If you want more information about this option, give me a call!  888-402-2273

Wimbledon Match Makes History

Some thought it would never end … and they were right! After a grueling 9 1/2 hour match, John Isner (USA) and Nicolas Mahut (FR) can finally call it a night. The match was set to begin yesterday, June 22 and was suspended because of the weather. It will now go into a 3rd day, making this officially the longest tennis match in history  – and it’s not over yet. 

Normally, this could be settled with a tie breaker game to avoid never-ending games. However, Wimbledon is not just any tennis tournament and it does not offer a tie breaker in the finals. The players will rest tonight and prepare to duke it out again in Day 3 of their match tied at 59-59.

Luckily we know where you can get the tickets to their follow up match!


Tennis’ Best Kept Secret

Well it’s really no secret at all, but what tennis fans worldwide don’t realize is that you can see your favorite tennis stars for a steal of a deal!  Each spring the Sony Ericsson Open hosts the world’s top tennis players in Miami, FL and tickets to the event often start at just $29.

Occuring now through April 4th, tennis fans can catch Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick, Serena Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Jelena Jankovic, Venus Williams and many more. 

Though the US Open or Wimbledon would be an incredible experience, it’s a budget breaker for some. See great tennis for less while soaking in Miami’s perfectly spring sun.  Get your tickets today!
