Monday morning’s heavy rainfall brought some extra drama to Circle City Tickets’ corner of Indianapolis. The culvert running under Keystone Avenue just south of the Woodfield Crossing Boulevard intersection began to collapse due to the rushing water! We watched as a police officer realized the road was unsafe to drive on and stopped traffic in the northbound lane. All northbound traffic on Keystone is now being temporarily rerouted to Allisonville Road and they are saying construction could take up to 2 months.
*PLEASE TAKE NOTE: CIRCLE CITY TICKETS IS OPEN AND IS STILL EASILY ACCESSIBLE! All traffic coming from 465 and the north side still have access to both the north and southbound lanes north of Woodfield Crossing Boulevard outside of our office. Traffic coming from south on Keystone will need to turn right at the 80th Street light and then an immediate left onto the access road running parallel to Keystone that will lead you straight to our parking lot entrance.
If you are looking to go to the Kenny Chesney concert at Verizon Wireless Music Center this weekend, Circle City Tickets still have lawn tickets available as well as VIP parking! You can conveniently (now that you know the short cuts) pick up your tickets at our north side office or you can schedule a pick up at our downtown office.
And be sure to check out Circle City Tickets discussing the damage on WTHR Channel 13 (around the 1 minute mark):

TV fans, do not be afraid. What you are seeing is not something from the Twilight Zone, but rather a mesh of writers’ lack of originality and creativity.
‘Friends’ (NBC) was the greatest show of all time and I’m confident enough to say so. It had the perfect formula for success with 3 guys and 3 girls who are all 30-something best friends living in the city, experience many adventures, hookups, breakups, and all to the sweet sound of a laugh track. Introduce an episode of ‘Friends’ to anyone who has never really watched the show and they will instantly fall in love with Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Joey, Monica, and Chandler.
‘Friends’ aired for 10 wonderful years and there has not and will not be anything like it. Today you will find 3 shows on major networks that are attempting to use the magical formula to recreate the perfect friend group. However, we are not fooled and will not be swayed.
‘Happy Endings’ (ABC) premiered last night with one of the gals leaving one of the guys at the altar. How original. Rachel left her fiancé during the pilot episode of ‘Friends’ and on the ‘Perfect Couples’ (NBC) premiere two of the friends decide not to get married just before walking down the aisle. ’Happy Endings’ also features 6 familiar characters that you will find uncanny resemblances to in ‘Friends’ and ‘Perfect Couples’ as well as a purple-walled apartment that will take you back to Monica’s trademark apartment.
‘Perfect Couples’ follows the ‘Friends’ path a bit less than ‘Happy Endings’ since the characters are all in relationships with each other, however ‘Perfect Couples’ seems to have taken a page out of the ‘Better With You’ (ABC) playbook, a show that I have enjoyed from the start. ’Perfect Couples’ compares the lives at 3 couples who are all friends but are in different stages in their relationships. ’Better With You’ also features 3 couples in different staged relationships, however the characters are related with the two girls being sisters and the oldest couple being their parents. ’Better With You’ trumps ‘Perfect Couples’ because the characters are naturally funny and it is the only show out of the 3 that boasts a laugh track (a lost art).
There are so many similarities and comparisons between these 4 shows (as if the picture doesn’t say it all) that I could rant about the outrage all afternoon. So I will leave you with the most important piece of information… Cammi’s official ranking:
4th- ‘Perfect Couples’ (Bad jokes and bad casting! Bleh!)
3rd- ‘Happy Endings’ (Funny moments… if you can get past the ‘Friends’ parallels)
2nd- ‘Better With You’ (Classic comedy that will make you want to hang with your sis)
1st- ‘Friends’ (Need I say more?)
After all of this confusion, I am sure that you are wanting to do something that involves a bit less creative overlap. Well then check out Circle City Tickets for the best deals on tickets to shows to see your favorite creative music artists this summer!

Two icons of music. In one unforgettable evening. Don’t miss this “Once in a Lifetime” opportunity to hear the music of Frank Sinatra performed live by five-time Grammy nominee Michael Feinstein and be part of a PBS broadcast taping at the Palladium in Carmel, Indiana on PBS.
Multi-platinum-selling. Five-time Grammy-nominated. Singer, pianist, and musical anthropologist, devoting his career to the rediscovery, preservation, and performance of the wealth of material we know as American Popular Song. As proven in sold-out shows in the world’s capitals, Feinstein’s passion for the music fills concert halls with the songs America danced to, romanced to, and grew up to.
Feinstein is now the artistic director of the newly-completed, one hundred sixty million dollar Palladium in Carmel, Indiana — a state of the art concert hall already hailed by critics and performers alike as one of the country’s premiere venues. The hall is as exciting and new, in fact, as this musical event for which it provides the setting.
It’s an evening dedicated to “The Sinatra Circle” — the performers, the songs, and that fabulous era of music in which Frank Sinatra reigned supreme. Backed by a seventeen-piece Big Band and spiced with stories about these bigger-than-life personalities, Feinstein will lead a musical exploration into how Sinatra affected his contemporaries — voices like Rosemary Clooney, Dean Martin, Peggy Lee, Lena Horne, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald — and how they, in turn, affected him.
These legends and more are conjured up by way of their equally-legendary songs, some iconic and others familiar but fresh. “Luck Be a Lady,” “Begin the Beguine,” “All I Need is the Girl,” “I Love Being Here with You,” “What Kind of Fool Am I?” “The Lady is a Tramp,” “Once in a Lifetime,” “Sway!”
That’s only a partial song list, of course, and the numbers may change — but what’s definitely in store is a night of classic American songs, the best of the best, in timeless arrangements with the unmistakable Michael Feinstein style.
Following the success of “The Sinatra Project,” this next step — commissioned by Concord Records — once more emulates the unique, Big Band sound Sinatra originated with Nelson Riddle. It sings…and it most definitely swings…in all-new arrangements bringing that sound right up to date, paying tribute to that time when American music captured our spirit of boundless optimism.
Feinstein. Sinatra. Big Band. The perfect combination for an unforgettable evening.
Dave Matthews Band has announced that they will host (4) 3-day, multi-band, multi-stage music festivals this summer!

We will be sending out save the date emails and announcing more information soon but we wanted to share the news with our fans first.” Unfortunately, no one is certain what these “four multi-day, multi-artist music events” are or where they are going to be, but Circle City Tickets will keep you up to date with all of the exciting news!
