Paul McCartney Tickets Petco Park: Ticket Down Slashes Ticket Prices on Paul McCartney Tickets in San Diego, CA at Petco Park


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

Ticket Down is a reputable source for cheap Paul McCartney tickets at Petco Park in San, Diego, CA on Sunday, September 28th. Having began his career at the age of 15 in 1957, Paul McCartney has had one of the longest lasting careers of any musician from any genre. McCartney was an influential figure in the success of the greatest band in the history of music, The Beatles. Even at the age of 71, McCartney still enjoys to tour around the world to play his music for the fans and has already announced four stops in the United States this summer. The stops he will be making this summer include Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco, CA and now he has added a stop in San Diego, CA. In the latter city, McCartney will be playing at Petco Park the home of the San Diego Padres.

The Beatles are a group that is considered by most as the greatest group of performers to ever make music together. They have sold more than 600 million records around the world, making the Beatles the best selling group in the history of music. The group has released dozens of records over the years and even after they stopped playing together, have had dozens of compilations put out to give fans the chance to hear their music again and again.

For McCartney as a solo artist, his catalog of music isnt as extensive as it was during his time with the British group, but it is still a lot of music that his fans have fallen in love with and will look forward to hearing live on June 19 in New Orleans. Among the songs McCartney will likely perform for his fans at this show include Maybe Im Amazed, Band on the Run, Jet, Silly Love Songs, Goodnight Tonight, and Let Em In.

Petco Park is the home of the MLB San Diego Padres. The venue opened 10 years ago in 2004 and has seen many memorable events in baseball history including the 750 home run in the career of Barry Bonds and Petco park also played host to the World Baseball Classic. Popular music legends such as Avicii, Madonna, The Rolling Stones and Deadmau5 have performed at Petco Park in front of sellout crowds.

Reclamation Hosting Annual C.A.S.T. for Kids Lets Move Outside Event at Potholes State Park

Moses Lake, Wash. (PRWEB) July 29, 2013

Children with a wide range of disabilities will have the opportunity to reel in a good time as they join some enthusiastic volunteers during the C.A.S.T. for Kids fishing event on August 3 at Potholes Reservoir located 15 miles south of Moses Lake, Wash.

C.A.S.T., which stands for “Catch a Special Thrill,” offers children with disabilities and terminal illnesses an opportunity to enjoy a day of fishing and boating. This C.A.S.T. event is also part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move Outside” initiative. The First Lady’s goal is to solve the problem of childhood obesity by encouraging children to increase physical activity on America’s public lands and waterways, and eating healthier.

Participants and volunteers will meet at Potholes State Park located off State Route 262. Washington State Parks manages the campground which offers easy access to Potholes Reservoir.

“This will be a first fishing experience for some of these kids,” said Jennifer McConnell of the Bureau of Reclamation’s Ephrata Field Office. “It is a great opportunity for volunteers to be part of a special experience that these children will remember for years to come.”

The children range in age from 7-16 years old and have a variety of physical and/or developmental disabilities and some may suffer with a terminal illness. Each participant will receive fishing gear, a tee shirt, and a hat.

Local Potholes Bass Club members and the Columbia Basin Walleye Club will be on hand with fishing boats and years of professional experience to assist novice anglers. The morning fishing events will be followed by a picnic lunch prepared by the Culinary Arts Class of the Columbia Basin Job Corps Center.

Partners include: Bureau of Reclamation, C.A.S.T. for Kids Foundation , Columbia Basin Walleye Club, Potholes Bass Club, Washington BASS Club, Columbia Basin Job Corps Center, Washington State Parks, Washington State Fish and Wildlife, and Grand Coulee Council Boy Scout Troup 24. Donations for the event were provided by local businesses including: Coulee Playland Resort, Costco, Cascade Marina, Harvest Foods, Richard & Karen Honey, Moses Lake FFA, Pautzker Bait Co., Safeway, Franz Family Bakery, Tonnemaker Family Orchard, Othello Auto Parts, Wal-Mart, Sporty’s Steakhouse, and Potholes Sports Cafe. Medical support this year is provided by Fire District No. 12 from Royal Slope, Wash.

For more information about the August 3 event, contact Jennifer McConnell at (509) 754-0215. In case of rain, the C.A.S.T. event will be canceled. To find out more about the C.A.S.T. for Kids – Let’s Move Outside events Region-wide, contact Shari Kohlbecker, Regional Coordinator at (208) 378-5050 or visit http://www.usbr.gov/pn/cast/ .

Luke Bryan Tickets Milwaukee Summerfest: Ticket Down Slashes Luke Bryan Concert Ticket Prices in Milwaukee at Marcus Amphitheatre


Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) June 27, 2014

Ticket Down is a reliable source for Luke Bryan tickets in Milwaukee at the Marcus Amphitheatre. Luke Bryan has turned into the most popular country singer in the world. He has played around the world for fans of all ages and enjoys putting on a good show each night. Every summer, he takes part in his own headlining tour that sells out in every city and on June 28th, Luke Bryan will be one of the headliners at the annual Summerfest. Opening the show for Bryan will be Voice winner and country superstar, Danielle Bradbery. A year ago, Bryan performed at the ninth Summerfest and tickets sold out faster than tour organizers were expecting, so they decided to bring him back again. Bryans career kicked off in 2004 and he quickly became a name in Nashville. The native of Leesburg, GA has released four studio albums in his career. The last two releases both reached the top of the Billboard country charts and in the case of Crash My Party, his 2013 release, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 200 album charts. It has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for selling more than 1.8 million copies in the United States alone.

Throughout his career, Bryan has also released six extended play releases, most recently in March of this year. That EP, titled Spring Break 6 Like We Aint Ever, has sold more than 100,000 copies and collectively, his six EPs have sold more than 800,000 copies. Among the songs fans will hope to hear him perform at Summerfest 2014 include Drink a Beer, Play it Again, Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye, Thats My Kind of Night, Country Man, Do I, Someone Else Calling Your Baby, and I Dont Want this Night to End.

Bradbery won her season of The Voice in 2013 and has already become a country superstar. The 17-year-old native of Houston, Texas was a part of Team Blake Shelton on the show and used everything he taught her to become an all-around performer. She released The Heart of Dixie, which has sold more than 375,000 copies. Her debut album, Danielle Bradbery, peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard country charts.

The Marcus Amphitheatre originally opened in 1987 on the south end of the Henry Maier Festival Park. The facility was built after a Huey Lewis and the News concert became overcrowded to the tune of drawing 30,000 fans in a facility that was capable of holding 15,000.
