Austin Mahone To Perform At 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards

radio-disney-music-awards-650pxAll Mahomies within range need to perk up their ears for some big news. Austin Mahone is not only presenting at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards, he’s also going to perform at the event. Mahone has been on quite a tear recently. He released “The Secret,” his debut album, and he’s been spotted in the studio with none other than Justin Bieber. He’s headlining a massive tour this summer, and he recently knocked everybody out with his performance at the Kids’ Choice Awards. On top of all that, he just turned 18. Whew! That’s a lot to have on your plate at such a tender age.

Austin also blew the minds of a posse of students at the Miami Sports, Leadership and Management Academy when he dropped by and played three songs for the star-struck kids. That was when he announced that he would be presenting and performing at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards. He’ll be in good company at the awards show with other presenters like Julianne Hough, Kelly Osbourne and Cody Simpson. While at the academy, he hald a raffle to win a trip to fly to Los Angeles and go to the awards show, which is being held on Saturday, April 26 at the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live. The show will be televised the next day, Sunday, April 27 at 8:00 EDT and 7:00 CDT. If you want tickets to the awards show and after party, contact us at VIP Concierge. We’ll hook you up for the time of your life.

Fantasy, Fairytales and Fun at the “Maleficent” Movie Premiere

maleficent movie premiereOn May 28th, the lights will be going down so fans can experience that signature Disney magic with a dark, dark spin at the “Maleficent” movie premiere. There will be horned villains, gallant princes, beautiful princesses, tree monsters, dragons and fairies. Such fun! Have you realized that many fairytales don’t even have fairies in them? Well, that’s not the case with this classic tale that explores the powers of good and evil and the supernatural. This flick is full of preternatural creatures, including Angelina Jolie, who dons a horned headpiece and enhanced cheekbones to become the self-proclaimed Mistress of All Evil. Yes, ALL evil, and she does a splendid job.

It’s been a while since fans have been Miss Angelina on the big screen. She voiced the tiger in 2011′s “Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters” and appeared in 2010′s “The Tourist”, but she hasn’t been doing much lately. She’ll be joined by Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Lesley Manville, Juno Temple and a host of princes, kings and fairies. As you’ve heard, the film recounts the untold story of Maleficent’s past, her heroism protecting her lands and the backstabbing betrayal that turned her heart to stone and caused her to curse the princess. Fortunately, a good fairy steps in, tinkers with the curse and gets the sentence down from death to a 100-year sleep. Not so bad!

This tale is so classic that it has its own category in the Aarne-Thompson fairytale taxonomy: code 410, enchanted relatives, sup-group “The Sleeping Beauty” story. The tale dates back to 17th century France but is probably much older. Cinderella author Charles Perrault, the father of the fairy tale, penned the first version “The Princess Sleeping in the Wood,” which was later retold by the Brothers Grimm, (those plagiarists!) and put on film by Disney. However, “Maleficent” explores an entirely different theme with the villain as the star and protagonist.

The film might be dark, but it’s full of spectacular effects and good-hearted moments that will appeal to generations of kids, teens and adults who’ve grown up adoring Disney films. Everyone’s hungry for supernatural thrillers these days, so this one is likely to be a big hit with fans. The movie premiere and after-party are sure to be rife with preternatural spectacles. Fortunately, it’s not too late to reserve your spot in fairyland. Movie premiere tickets for the May 28th event in L.A. are still available from your fairy friends at VIP Concierge. See you there!

Luke Bryan to Perform at Billboard Music Awards Show

bbma_banner_2014_nosamLuke Bryan is living a dream, or at least he says so. His star is rising high across the country, and he’s hanging on for dear life. According to Bryan, “All I ever wanted to be is a big ol’ country star and I cannot believe it’s happened. It’s the time of my life and I’m loving every day. It’s all a dream.”

Hopefully Luke will be wide awake on May 18 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. He’s just been added to the list of stars who will be performing at the upcoming 2014 Billboard Music Awards. It’s likely Bryan will play “Play It Again” again for the good people in attendance and for those watching the live event on broadcast television. He’ll be representing the countrified segment of the audience, smack in the middle of a widely varied lineup consisting of Imagine Dragons, OneRepublic, John Legend and Jason Derulo. Bryan has a vested interest in this year’s show. He’s been nominated for seven awards in six categories, including the all-genre Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, and the prestigious Milestone Award. He’ll probably be on stage more than once.

This isn’t the first time Bryan has been nominated for several awards. Since his 2007 debut release “I’ll Stay Me,” he’s racked up the awards, including scoring the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year nod in 2013. He’s not really sure if he’s awake or dreaming, but if he’s dreaming, he doesn’t want to wake up. Life is. . . well, it’s too damned good.

Bryan’s in good company, as far as country music stars at the Billboard Music Awards. Other country artists who were nominated for various accolades include the ever-present Taylor Swift, Alan Jackson, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, Darius Rucker and Garth Brooks.

If you’d like to attend the Billboard Music Awards, you don’t have to be nominated or even be a great musician. All you have to do to get music awards tickets is contact VIP Concierge. We have VIP passes to the show and the after-parties, where the boots get scootin’ and the stars get hootin’.
The 2014 Billboard Music Awards will air live on Sunday, May 18 at 8PM ET on ABC, but there’s no reason you can’t be there for all the fun and excitement. Just agitate the little gray cells on your smart phone and dial us in. We’ll have you sitting right in the middle of it all. You’ll have something in common with Luke Bryan. You’ll think you’re dreaming too.

We get tickets to the Radio Disney Awards, Teen Choice, I Heart Radio, the ESPYs, the People’s Choice awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards, and the Country Music Association’s annual award show. We usually have tickets to the elite parties that run before, during and after the Academy Awards©, the Grammy Awards© and all the other awards shows. Lots of people get to go to the show, but only a certain, privileged few get to attend the after-parties. That’s when things really get frivolous, glitzy and downright fun.

We can get you backstage for the production of a television show or onto the set of a motion picture while it’s being shot. For film lovers, it doesn’t get any better than that. The stars love to have visitors to the set, and they’ll make you feel as welcome as a foam finger at a football game. We can also put you backstage for a concert with your favorite group. We can even arrange a “meet and greet’ with the biggest stars on stage, screen or radio.

You can rent a yacht and go sailing, sailing over the bounding sea. You can rent a mansion for a weekend, a week or even a month and enjoy opulent splendor.

We can also get you into a stunt plane show—not on the ground mind you, but in the plane itself while it performs aerobatic stunts that might leave you a little seasick.

You can be whisked away to Monaco for a spy adventure weekend, complete with. . . . well, we’d tell you all about it, but then we’d have to kill you. It is a spy weekend, after all.

If your family likes to play golf, we can put you on the most famous courses, like Augusta, the home of The Masters. We can also get you box seats in Wrigley Field or any baseball or football stadium you like.

Lollapalooza Lineup Looks Better Than Ever

Lollapalooza

Lollapalooza

Everybody get ready. This year’s Lollapalooza is going to be as big as. . . well, as big as last year’s Lollapalooza. No kidding. We don’t kid around about something this serious. The festival is going down from August 1 through August 3 in Grant Park in the City with Broad Shoulders, Chicago.

 

VIP Concierge has VIP passes to the throw-down, like we do every year. We work hard, scouring the earth in search of tickets to the most anticipated exclusive events happening in the four corners of this pear-shaped world.

 

The recently announced headliners for this tres chic bash have everybody buzzing. Eminem, who recently smashed sales records for his new CD is going to be the final act on Friday night, which should get things going in the right direction. Outkast has reformed, just so they could be the headliners on Saturday. OK, that may not be true, but they are definitely going to be the main attraction Saturday night. Nashville’s very own Kings of Leon will be taking it to the limit one more time on Sunday. They’ll make sure to close the show with a big bang.

Get Your VIP Tickets to the 2014 American Idol Grand Finale

American Idol

American Idol

Idol, A.I., or whatever you choose to call it, has become an American tradition. Every year, thousands of hopefuls stand in line waiting for a chance to audition and join the competition. Pressure mounts as the tournament enters its final phase and contestants are eliminated one by one until only two contenders remain. This is what everyone waits for. Season 13 had 13 weeks of finals and 13 finalists that are slowly being whittled down and sent home. This sad story has already happened to fan favorite Ben Briley who’s back home in Tennessee.

 

The American Idol Finale is the holy grail of reality-style television shows. The two-day event is so massive that it takes place in Hollywood’s storied Nokia Theatre at L.A. Live. Attending the American Idol Finale is the best way to prove your die-hard fan status. Enjoy the first night of performances on May 20th, be there for results show on May 21st, or attend both dazzling events for the complete Idol experience.

Soundtrack for The “The Amazing Spiderman 2″ Drops April 22

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Movie tie-ins are nothing new. Neither is the release of a soundtrack album. In advance of the world premiere of “The Amazing Spiderman 2,” the soundtrack is being released on April 22. With the radio exposure it’s sure to attract, this is a smart move. It’s basically free advertising for the film.

 

Of course, superhero films are all the rage these days, and Spiderman has always been one of the most popular superheroes ever, whether in comic books or in the movies. The soundtrack is an impressive collection of new tunes by some of the hottest musicians this side of the New York City skyline.

 

The film closes with a song sung by Alicia Keys that she co-wrote with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Hans Zimmer called “It’s On Again.” It’s going to also be predominantly featured on the soundtrack. Williams produced the song, and Lamar kicked in with his own take. Keys bubbled with enthusiasm when she spoke about it. “I’m very excited to be a part of such a powerful collaboration,” she said. “This is the next chapter in the Spider-Man legacy, and we really feel ‘It’s On Again’ captures the experience, the story–and most importantly–the meaning behind the film, which is that we all have the potential to be extraordinary. There’s a little bit of a super hero in all of us.”

ACM Awards Are All About The Music

ACM Academy of Country Music Awards

ACM Academy of Country Music Awards

What did you expect? Every year, the ACM Awards has to outdo themselves, and every year, they succeed. If this year was an exception to that rule, then my lead would be off-base. But it’s not, because I’m paid to write accurate, slightly inappropriate articles to draw your attention to the fact that VIP Concierge has tickets to this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards show, and all the good stuff that comes with it.

 

Now dig this. Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert are slated to headline the show this year in the fun in the sun capital of the desert, Las Vegas, Nevada. They do it every April, but this year looks extra good, with Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, George Strait and the Band Perry all scheduled to perform, which will hardly allow time for the awards to be passed out on April 6. Maybe they’ll extend the show until the seventh, too, but I sort of doubt that. As if that’s not enough, they’re going to cram more acts into their already jammed schedule, and they’ll be announced soon.

 

Lambert has a whopping 7 nominations this year, tied only by Tim McGraw. She said, “Every single time I see my name on any ballot, I still get butterflies.” That’s good, because if she didn’t get excited, that would mean it doesn’t matter, and matter it does. Urban received six nominations, and four other performers are nominated for 5 each, not the least of which is Blake Shelton, Lambert’s dearly beloved husband.

Pedal To The Metal Action at The “Need for Speed” Movie Premiere

Need For Speed Movie

Need For Speed Movie

Twenty years after “Need for Speed” swept the video game scene, the franchise is taking the action to the big screen. This high-octane action film has everything gamers love about the street-racing game plus a thrilling, revenge-fueled story that takes a page from Roger Corman’s 1955 film “The Fast and the Furious” and all the vroom-vroom action people loved in the modern street-racing series of the same name.

 

On March 6th, video game fantasies come to life with help from Aaron Paul of “Breaking Bad” fame, who plays the wrongly convicted mechanic and part-time street racer Tobey Marshall. After jumping jail and partying with friends, including rapper Kid Cudi, he’s poised to break away at extremely high speeds-mind-bending, face-jiggling speeds. Dominic Cooper, of “Captain America” plays a hot-headed entrepreneur and custom car guru who’s at Marshall’s back with an army of ne’er-do-well racers and helicopter pilots who are fighting for the $6 million dollar bounty. Sure, it’s a lot of money but not compared to the film’s $66 million budget, which was spent on cars, cars, cars and stunts.

The Movie Premiere Experience is Really Premiere

Red Carpet Event

Red Carpet Event

OK, so we can’t all be movie stars. It takes a lot of time, talent and hard work to make it to the top of that heap. But that doesn’t mean you can’t feel like a celebrity or, for that matter, hang out with them. It’s easier than you might think, and we can help you.

 

The best way to really feel like a movie star and meet your favorite movie stars is to get up and go to a movie premiere. VIP Concierge has tickets to premieres and the highly coveted after-parties, where the stars let their hair down and just have a good time, like the rest of us.

 

First of all, you want to arrive in a limo or an exotic car. If it has tinted windows, you’re sure to attract the same attention they all do. Dress to impress. It’s OK to spring for a new outfit. You’re going to be checked out from every angle, and you want everyone to know that you have arrived on-site and are ready to party.
