Welcome 2014!

As we close out another year, we, at the Ticket Lodge Blog, would like to extend to all our loyal readers a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014.  We hope you have tons of fun tonight (hopefully taking in a show or a game!), but remember to call a cab or a friend if you've had a drink too many.  Be safe and be merry!

So blog article would be complete without a little concert news, so I just wanted to list my top 5 tours or shows to see  in 2014.

1.) One Direction - hands down, no contest.  These tickets will be hard to come by.
2.) Lady Gaga - A perfect mix of theater and pop.  She will be dancing up a storm and will keep the crowd entertained with her many costume changes.
3.) Lorde - The coolest girl from New Zealand.  She keeps things fresh and interesting with her really unique sound.
4.) Miley Cyrus - While possible (completely) a little unhinged, that girl knows how to get people talking.  This show will not disappoint.
5.) Luke Bryan - the dreamiest guy of country music.  The girls all want him and the guys all want to be him.  He seems like a real cool dude.

See ya, 2013!

Jeff Dunham: Disorderly Conduct Tour

Jeff Dunham is currently on tour with his cast of comical puppets.  The tour called the "Disorderly Conduct" Tour features all of his puppets, including Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Peanut and redneck Bubba J,  that have helped put Dunham on the map

Dunham's shows are so popular that he is known for selling out arena sized venues.   He is also hosts very popular TV specials like, "Minding the Monsters" on Comedy Central and DVDs.  Fun fact, his puppets were featured on the Steve Carrell movie, "Dinner with Schmucks."

"Disordely conduct" will run through April 12, closing out in Chicago, IL.  After the U.S. leg, Dunham will bring his band of merry puppets internationally to the U.K.

Lorde on tour in 2014

Hot concert news! The hottest thing out of New Zealand at the moment is young singer/songwriter, Lorde.  She just announced she will be hitting the road for a North American tour in 2014.

Lorde will kick off her tour on March 3 in Austin Texas and wrap up March 26 in Oakland, CA.  There will be 15 dates in her tour

Her debut single from her EP "The Love Club", Royals,  has exploded in popularity across the globe.  The song hit the top spot of the New Zealand Top 40 and the top spot in the U.S. This earned her the honor of being the first solo artist from New Zealand to reach number one on the Billboard Top 100.

Be sure to get your tickets ASAP!  Lorde's shows are sure to sell out quickly.
