Since its doors opened in 1995, the TD Garden has hosted memorable Bruins and Celtics games, explosive concerts and dramatic shows, but on Saturday night, the Causeway St. venue will be the site of an ultimate affair.
UFC 118 will become the town’s first major MMA event, as a group of the world’s most skilled fighters take center stage where athletes like Zdeno Chara and Paul Pierce hone their craft. But the UFC won’t be the only bloody event this summer in Boston, as WWE Raw will be filming its 900th episode at the Garden just two days later, on Monday, Aug. 30.
Too bloody for you and the family? Come back to the North End in October when Barnum & Bailey brings Zing, Zang, Zoom to town, which promoters are calling a “thrill-filled, mind-blowing circus spectacular where family fun is no illusion.”
But for all of you New Englanders who have been suffering from a severe case of “Bieber Fever,” you’ve had this date circled for months now: Nov. 16, 2010. Justin Bieber, TD Garden, one night only. Need I say more?
So let’s forget about the Celtics and Bruins for just one second and think about the other stars that are set to take center stage at the Garden.
