Country superstar Brad Paisley brings his annual Country Nation College Tour presented by Frontier Communications to Orlando with a free outdoor show on Sunday, September 4th.
The show will take place on the grounds of City Hall in downtown Orlando. It is part of the inaugural Camping World Kickoff Weekend, featuring Ole Miss vs. Florida State in a game that kicks off the college football season.
A true superstar of country music, Brad Paisley is loved by both critics and fans alike.
He’s won three Grammys, 13 Academy of Country Music awards, and 14 Country Music Association Awards, among his many accolades. He’s also sold over 10 million albums and his last 12 singles have hit #1 on the charts.
Back on the road, Paisley is bringing the final leg of the H2O World Tour to the Amway Center in downtown Orlando on February 24, 2011.
Opening the show will be Darius Rucker (formerly “Hootie” of Hootie & the Blowfish) and Jerrod Niemann.
Tickets are $27.75 and $57.75 (plus Ticketmaster fees) and doors open at 7:30pm.
Every year, one of NASCAR’s most prestigious races is held just a two-hour drive from Orlando – the Daytona 500.
Held at the Daytona International Speedway, the “500” refers to the fact that the drivers have to race for 500 miles to the finish line.
That’s a lot of left turns.
This year’s event takes place on February 20, 2011, and not only will it bring in thousands of NASCAR fans to Central Florida, but it will be broadcast on the Fox Network to millions of viewers. It’s also going to be the first Daytona 500 to race on the newly repaved track.
It is the culmination of Speed Weeks that includes today’s Budweiser Shootout, and in between now and next Sunday’s big race, there are smaller races, driver meet-and-greets, live music, and more.
Individual tickets range from $55 to $189, with packages starting at $294 and going up to $1885. There is also a pre-show concert with country superstar Brad Paisley with VIP tickets (including a Daytona 500 ticket, Sprint FANZONE/Pre-Race access and VIP area access) going for $154.
