Shows 2008

Hi, we are travelling to the states in 2008 and plan to be in LA around mid to end of sep. Can you please advise if there is a site that I can go to to see what shows, musicals, concerts, sports events etc would be on around that time.

thanks for your help.

Laweekly.com is a weekly newspaper that has all the arts listings.

For sporting events, you could go to the individual teams' website or go to ticketmaster, and select the sport(s) and date range:

Many schedules will not be posted until next spring for the summer/fall events - but some places to start with

SPORTS

Baseball - Dodger Stadium (it might be over by then or will be in the final games so hard to get tickets)

Football - LA does not have a professional team - but both USC and UCLA college games are great fun to go to.

Other venues to check for plays, performances, etc...

STAPLES CENTER

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Disney Concert Hall

Kodak Theater

Hollywood Bowl

Greek Theater

Thanks so much. That gives me places to start. With not knowing team names, what season is when or where things would happen it makes it a bit challenging. I shall enjoy exploring.

Do check www.Ticketmaster.com as well. Many popular shows (like Wicked) have onsale dates as far as 8 months ahead. So if you want a ticket at face value from an authorized source for one of those shows, it's not too early to start looking in a month or so.
