There are many things in life that people enjoy spending their money on, but two of those things that comes first to my head are live concerts and sporting events. We already know that with the way that that the economy has been working as of lately, inflation has impacted both of these industries, making costs of either event, well costly.
The Washington Wizards are helping take the brunt off of that ordeal by offering you the chance for a buy one get one free type of deal. Starting in December, the franchise is kicking off its Friday Night Concert Series, which is a totally free concert after specific games at the Verizon Center.
The first of the advertised shows takes place on December 31st, when four-time Grammy Award nominated artist Tank and DJ Quicksilva will tipoff the concert series with a performance that will also feature a special guest appearance by four-time Grammy Award nominee Johnny Gill of New Edition.
Other acts throughout the months will be:
Jan. 6 – Backyard Band, Team Familiar, and DJ Rico
Mar. 17 – Bell Biv Devoe, and DJ Money
Mar. 24 – Erica Campbell and DJ Enya
Again, these shows are totally free, but only with the purchase of a game ticket for that night’s Wizards game. For ticket information call 202-661-5050 or visitwww.washingtonwizards.com/concertseries.
We’re not sure if you remember, but this past February there was a pretty big concert that happened in the tri-state area for all of the R&B lovers.
After a SOLD-OUT performance at the Barclays Center in New York, Ladies Night R&B Super Jam 2016 is coming to Verizon Center on Saturday, May 7. The evening will be filled with back-to-back R&B and Hip-Hop hits. The show will feature the return of R&B super group Jodeci, performing hits like “Freek’n You, Feenin’ “and “Come & Talk To Me”.
Also joining the lineup for the one-night-only event is Faith Evans with “Love Like This”, EL DeBarge “Rhythm Of The Night” & “All This Love” BlackStreet with “Don’t Leave Me”, 112 with “Peaches and Cream”, The Lox with “Money, Power, Respect”, Carl Thomas with “I Wish”, Total with “Can’t You See”, and Black Rob with “Whoa”.
This is another great show presented by Adam Torres Concerts, the same people who are bringing you the Big Hits Throwback Festival. Tickets to the show will go on sale to the general public Thursday, March 17 at 10 a.m., but a pre-Sale BEGINS TODAY at 10 A.M. with the code: LADIESNIGHT and can be purchased at the Verizon Center box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com.
