The month of August is once again packed with exciting sports and entertaining concerts and festivals. Here is our rundown of everything that is must see in the next month!
Liverpool vs. AS Roma – August 1st
A world-class soccer match at one of the best baseball venues in the country is a great way to kick off the month of August. Liverpool, a top level English football club, will take on AS Roma, a talented club team based out of Italy. The two sides will square off in Busch Stadium, the home of the St. Louis Cardinals, in the heart of the US. This game will be part of an exhibition series for both sides as they get ready for their seasons to begin back in Europe. This is a great chance for fans of the world’s most popular game to see the sport get played at the highest level. The game will be beautiful, the stadium will be in pristine condition and if the weather holds up it will make for a perfect day. AS Roma won the match 1-0 back in 2014 against Liverpool when the two squads squared off at Fenway Park. Find tickets to this world-class exhibition match right here at TicketNetwork.
James Taylor at Fenway Park – August 3rd
What could be better than seeing a legend in the music industry perform live at one of the most historic ballparks in the world? August 3rd, James Taylor takes the stage at Fenway Park and it should be an amazing way to spend a summer night in Boston. James Taylor was born in Beantown, so this should be a very special show for him. Watch him perform hits such as, “Carolina in My Mind,” “You’ve Got a Friend,” “Fire and Rain” and “Handy Man.” Taylor’s voice and skills with the acoustic guitar landed him a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, so getting tickets to this show should be a no-brainer. Tickets are easy to find at a great price right here at TicketNetwork.

Kanye West Tour – August 25th
Needing no introduction, Kanye West has announced a North American tour that starts August 25th at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN. Kanye released his album, The Life of Pablo back in February, and of course it debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 Charts. The Chi-town rapper has a catalog of hits and is known for his theatrics on-and-off the stage, and this massive tour should be no different. Expect to hear all of Kanye’s best songs, to see an insane show and to wait and see who he brings along for the ride on this wild tour. His guest list should include his fellow Chicago rappers on the come-up, Vic Mensa and Chance The Rapper, as well as Rihanna who appeared on one of the hit singles off of the album, “Famous.” TicketNetwork is the site for you if you’re looking for Kanye West tickets during his upcoming tour.

The Burning Man Festival offers people a chance to test their will and survival skills. See what you’re made of and get your Burning Man Festival tickets today!
US Open Tennis – August 29th
The final tennis major of the year is also one of the most coveted. The first three take place in Australia, France and England, but finally in August tennis comes back to the US for the US Open. This US Open could be very special as American Serena Williams has a chance at history. If the six-time US Open Champion can win her seventh, Serena will set the record for most Grand Slam Titles won by a tennis player, male or female, with 23 titles. Novak Djokovic had an embarrassing performance at Wimbledon so he’ll be looking to rebound from that while Andy Murray goes for back-to-back majors, a feat he has never accomplished in his career, after winning at Wimbledon in July. US Open tickets are a must this year, find yours right here at TicketNetwork.
There is no shortage of entertaining events occurring in August. TicketNetwork has your ticket for all of them, and getting a great seat at a great price for one of these events would definitely be the highlight of anyone’s summer.
