The National Hockey League’s 2012-13 season will face off with four games on Oct. 11, followed by raising the first Stanley Cup championship banner in Los Angeles one night later.
Opening night will feature nationally televised doubleheaders in both the United States and Canada. In the U.S., NBC Sports will air the Boston Bruins visiting the Philadelphia Flyers, followed by the St. Louis Blues at the Colorado Avalanche. In Canada, CBC will televise the Montreal Canadiens playing host to the Ottawa Senators, followed by the Calgary Flames hosting the Vancouver Canucks.
Here are the schedules for all 30 NHL teams for the 2012-13 season (crossing our fingers that a new CBA gets worked out, that is):
Already the biggest sporting event in Canada, the 100th incarnation of the Grey Cup promises to be an extra-special centennial celebration of the CFL. Leading up to the championship game on Sunday November 25, 2012 will be a ten-day Grey Cup Festival beginning November 15. The Festival is slated to be the largest Grey Cup party ever, ranging from team parties and fan activities located all around Toronto.
The centennial CFL championship game will be a must-see event in Toronto this fall, and ShowTimeTickets.com will have tickets to the big game! Check out our Grey Cup ticket listings or call us at 1 800 480 7469!
Brampton, Ontario’s Russell Peters is best-known for drawing from his Indian-Canadian heritage and poking fun at racial stereotypes. It’s material that’s rocketed him to comedy superstar status, along with a scattering of movie and TV gigs.
I mean, who hasn’t heard this routine on his experiences growing up as an immigrant child:
As far as comedians go, he’s the big kid on the block with a huge global fanbase – having set attendance records in Oman, South Africa and Singapore among other places – and he’s coming to a city near you. His Notorious World Tour is in Edmonton Thursday before heading to Vancouver for a DJ gig at the FIVESIXTY nightclub (Russell Peters at CIRQUE tickets) and a stand-up gig at Rogers Arena Saturday night. After Vancouver, the tour loops eastward before finishing off in Los Angeles, CA on December 7th.
His focus on racial comedy is what made him famous, and his latest tour is said to draw from that same motif, but Russell promises new material on his Notorious tour:
From The Vancouver Sun:
“The subject matter will be from the same pool but the jokes will be different,” Peters, 41, said in recent interview in advance of his Notorious World Tour.
“I don’t know about reinventing myself but I feel pressure to write funny stuff that’s comparable to the old stuff. You make sure you’re not just doing inside jokes for the old fans; you want to make the new fans feel welcome too. You want them to feel like, ‘Oh, good, we can get on this party bus too.’”

The incredibly funny Jerry Seinfeld is currently on tour, and will be stopping in Vancouver later this summer on September 8th.
Jerry Seinfeld is best known for his successful sitcom, Seinfeld, which ruled prime-time television for nearly ten years.
In his post-Seinfeld career, Jerry Seinfeld co-wrote and starred in Bee Movie. He most recently appeared in HBO’s Talking Funny, a roundtable with Louis C.K., Ricky Gervais, and Chris Rock . He also co-starred alongside co-writer and producer of Seinfeld, Larry David, for a season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Luckily for fans everywhere, he has returned to his roots and first passion in stand-up comedy. He is back on stage and on tour!
Seinfeld kicks off his tour in Ottawa on June 22nd. He’ll make his way across North America, performing two nights in Vegas, before wrapping in Vancouver with two shows on September 8th.
Laugh along with the much-loved Jerry Seinfeld live on stage. Check us out at ShowTimeTickets.com for the full list of show dates, where we are never sold out!
Madonna was one of the first queens of controversy in the music industry, and a few weeks into her latest world tour, she has been up to her old tricks. ShowTimeTickets.com has tickets to all of Madonna’s MDNA tour dates, and if her first few shows are any indication, fans are in for quite the show. At 53 years old you gotta give her credit for staying in shape. I suppose we should be thankful for that, given Madge’s propensity to show off select bits of her body during these past few weeks: Continue reading →
After the Los Angeles Kings took a 3-0 lead in the Stanley Cup Finals, it seemed all but assured that California would be getting its second Stanley Cup in short order. The Devils had other ideas, staving off elimination in Games 4 and 5, which was more wins than any other opponent of Kings had mustered this postseason.
But in front of their home fans and on the strength of two goals scored an early 5-minute powerplay – Steve Bernier was called for a boarding major that left him trending on Twitter immediately following the game – the Kings capped their playoff run in the same convincing fashion as when they started it. They are the lowest-seeded team to ever win the Stanley Cup (in the current format), but their 16-4 run to the Cup ranks among the most dominant in recent memory.
Just over 8 months ago, the BC Lions erased a 0-5 start to their season by hoisting the 99th Grey Cup in front of their home crowd at the newly-opened BC Place:
For all the drama that was in 2011, it is now relegated to the past as the 2012 CFL preseason is set to begin tomorrow. Teams have retooled their rosters and coaching staffs – the champion BC Lions have installed former defensive coach Mike Benevides as their head coach – and as last season’s Grey Cup matchup between the Lions and Winnipeg Blue Bombers showed, every year is a new year for CFL teams. Tomorrow’s preseason kickoff pits the Saskatchewan Roughriders against the BC Lions, and the Toronto Argonauts visit the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Which teams do you think will punch their tickets to the 100th Grey Cup game in Toronto this season? ShowTimeTickets.com is the place to get your CFL tickets this season, including tickets to the 100th Grey Cup game in Toronto! We’re never sold out, so be sure to check out our CFL listings or call us at 1 800 480 SHOW to secure your tickets today!
At a recent concert stop in Tinley Park, Illinois, British rock band Radiohead debuted a new song titled “Full Stop” to the delight of the crowd. The new song follows the release of the band’s latest album “The King of Limbs”.
Like other new tunes the group has been trying out in recent sets, “Full Stop” pushes the dark and densely rhythmic sound of the King material in a more aggressive direction. This number is particularly menacing, with beats that tumble out violently as Thom Yorke chants “the truth will mess you up,” a sentiment that is so very Thom Yorke that it’s surprising it took so long for him to actually sing it.
Have a listen and tell us what you think of Radiohead’s latest work!
Radiohead has a few more stops on the North American leg of its current tour – notably concerts in Montreal and Toronto – before closing out their 2012 schedule with gigs in France, New Zealand and Australia. Remember that you can get Radiohead tickets for any of their dates with ShowTimeTickets.com – we’re never sold out!
The game of musical chairs continues on the UFC 149 fight card in Calgary this summer. Tickets for UFC 149 have long been sold out, but there is still uncertainty about who 18-odd thousand fans will actually see inside the Octagon come July 21st.
So here is the latest update on the UFC 149 fight card, straight from UFC.com:
UFC 149 and UFC on FOX 4 have swapped stars after another pair of injuries shook up the summer fight scene today.
British middleweight Michael Bisping has been injured and is out of his UFC 149 bout against rising force Tim Boetsch. Stepping in to meet “The Barbarian” will be Hector Lombard, a former Cuban Olympian who rides a 25-fight unbeaten streak into his Octagon debut.
Lombard had been slated to fight Brian Stann in the main event of UFC on FOX 4 in August, but was left opponentless earlier today after Stann was forced to withdraw due to injury. That event got a new headliner in the form of Shogun Rua, who’d been left orphaned on the UFC 149 fight card after planned opponent Thiago Silva was hurt. Two Thiagos Injured, Off Canada Card updated June 4
Two of the UFC’s top Thiagos have suffered injuries forcing them off the UFC 149 fight card, as Thiago Alves is out of his bout against Siyar Bahadurzada, while Thiago Silva has had to withdraw from his co-main bout against former light heavyweight champion Shogun Rua.
Stepping in to the welterweight bout in Alves’ place is Chris Clements, a striker from London, Ontario, Canada, who won his UFC debut at UFC 145 in April. Continue reading →
