Taylor Swift's Fearless Tour will stop at the Target Center Sunday, October 11 at 7:00. One of the most highly anticipated Country Music tours of the year, the Taylor Swift Fearless show will combine country music songs and sounds with a Britney Spears like production quality to produce a one of a kind show that should not be missed.

Joining Taylor Swift on this tour is good friend American Idol's Kellie Pickler. The two girls co-wrote Kellie's current single "Best Days of Your Life" as revenge against a boy who wronged Kellie and Taylor provides backup vocals on track as well as the rest of Kellie's album.

Opening for the show is Gloriana, the new country group who just released the hit of the summer, "Wild At Heart". The group along with pumping up the crowd is out to promote their new album that will drop later this fall.

Tickets to this show are already sold out but can be found online and through ticket brokers like Ticket King. Buy soon before even these sources are all out!

Minnesota Timberwolves announce big changes and a new head coach

Timberwolves Player #33 taking a Jump Shot
Earlier this week the Minnesota Timberwolves announced the Kurt Rambis will be the new head coach for the team. Coach Rambis wasted no time making it clear that he was in sync with David Kahn and that Timberwolves fans should expect to see big changes this season. The Timberwolves roster was shaken up and stripped down almost to nothing. New players are being brought in, with the hopes that the MN Timberwolves will return to their Kevin Garnett glory days... when Twin Cities basketball fans were eager and excited to go to games. Even if the playing itself doesn't pull people into the Target Center, potential newcomer Ricky Rubio sure will. The 18 year old Spanish Heart-Throb is exactly the "star" player that the Timberwolves need to generate excitement and increase ticket sales.

While I wouldn't go as far as saying that the Timberwolves will sell out the Target Center, I do think there will be more demand for T-Wolves tickets this season than there has been in recent years and if you don't want to be left out of the newest Twin Cities sports trend I would suggest scooping up tickets now.
