Starting on BBC 4 in the U.K. in 1988, “Whose Line Is It, Anyway?” ran for 10 years, while gaining popularity in America with airings on Comedy Central starting in the early ‘90s. A U.S. version followed, and ran for another eight seasons on ABC and ABC Family after that. For many television viewers, the show was their first exposure to this kind of improv comedy. Though the people responsible for the show did not create the genre, the phrase, “Whose Line is it, Anyway?,” has become a catch-all descriptive for a specific style of theater sports. The popularity of the show endures, and capitalizing upon that, four of the principal cast members have been taking a version on the road in the U.S. and Canada since 1999. Calling it Whose Live, Anyway?, the show features comedians who participated in one or both versions of the television show. Who are they?

Bryan Adams is the kind of everyman pop rocker that just doesn’t exist anymore. The few rock radio stations that are left in 2011 play aggressive male-oriented hard rock, or whatever passes for alternative, but in the olden days of the 1980s, you could be a mainstream pop star who played rock and roll. You didn’t have to be anything else. That’s just what you were.
Of this ilk, Bryan Adams was one of the biggest. Despite the name of his best selling album, there wasn’t much about Bryan Adams that could be described as Reckless, but the string of cuddly hits from that album (“Run to You,” “Somebody,” “Heaven,” “Summer of ‘69”) are some of the more reliable nostalgia-producers of the Reagan-era. He successfully transitioned into a Mom-approved soft balladeer in the ‘90s, having the biggest hit of his career in 1991 with the ubiquitous theme song from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You.” He tried to reclaim his rocker status with 1996’s “The Only Thing That Looks Good on Me Is You,” but by then, slow jams like “Please Forgive Me,” and “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?” were what his fans really wanted from him. After his 1998 duet with Barbara Streisand, “I Finally Found Someone” (from The Mirror Has Two Faces), his U.S. hits dried up. Naturally, he remains a hitmaking superstar in Europe and his native Canada.

We can’t think of a more covered or more popular karaoke song than Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me.”
Three decades after the song that everyone can sing-along to was first released, Cheap Trick continues to tour regularly, rocking out for several new generations of fans. With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum recording awards – it’s clear – the band is serious about putting on a Rock ‘n’ Roll show.

We’re excited to announce that Ticket Alternative has its first Ticketmaster venue in Georgia to switch over! Below is the press release from the venue:
The Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater, “The Fred” has built its reputation through the years on small town values that have extended in part to providing superior customer service to a loyal and passionate customer base. Being accessible and friendly is often cited by these customers as the reason the 2,500 seat venue is chosen over others to attend summer concerts under the stars.
In 2005 the venue entered into a contract with Ticketmaster to provide ticketing services for the concert series that ran throughout the summer.The Fred has been
utilizing this service through the box office and other outlets for the past four years. Some might say that this change adversely affected the home-town service
once offered through the rustic box office nestled in the trees.
In 2010 there will be a change. After examining several ticketing options and looking over numerous proposals, Atlanta based Ticket Alternative has been selected as the ticketing vendor of choice for The Fred.
