The 99X Guide To Last Minute Christmas Gifts
It's that time of the holiday season where you've either put it off too long, or are realizing that you totally forgot about someone you need to get a gift for. But don't sweat, because the staff here at 99X put our heads together and came up with a list of 5 things that you can buy right now, and have to gift within minutes!
Gift Idea #1 - Tickets To See The WWE Live VIP Tour In Bossier City
This one feels like a straight up no-brainer. The show will be at The CenturyLink Center on Saturday, January 9th, meaning the tickets will be used quick, and it's a SATURDAY NIGHT! No worries about school the next day, or having to take time off work. Plus, it's the big show, featuring WWE's biggest star, John Cena. Tickets start at just $15, so a family of 5 can get in under $100. But if you want to gift a once-in-a-lifetime moment, this is the VIP Tour, meaning you can purchases exclusive ringside seats that come with meet and greets, exclusive photo ops, and free swag.
Gift Idea #2 - Tickets To See ZZ Top In Shreveport
Legendary rockers ZZ Top will be making their first stop in Shreveport since 1999 this spring, and tickets for the show make a great gift for those young and old. The band's first performance at the historic Shreveport Municipal Auditorium came back in 1972, meaning you could gift tickets to someone who was at that show this holiday season. But, you could also gift someone tickets for their first ever ZZ Top show. Either way, you can't go wrong.
Gift Idea #3 - Tickets To See Trivium At The Riverside Warehouse
Here's one for the heavier friends on your list. Trivium is, and has been, one of America's premiere metalcore bands for over a decade. Which is about how long it's been since the band has played a show in Shreveport. But that all changed this February when they hit The Riverside Warehouse.
This is a band you would usually have to pay $30-$40 to see live. But this for this show, you're only laying down $17 a ticket. Which is insane for this level of band, on a FRIDAY NIGHT, in your own backyard.
Gift Idea #4 - Tickets To See Def Leppard, Styx, and Tesla At The CenturyLink
What a stacked show. Three heavy-hitters, all from the same era. This is the kind of lineup you usually have to go to big outdoor festivals to get. But instead of having to gamble on the elements, you're going to get this show in the comfort of The CenturyLink Center. Plus, there are your standard tiered seating, so unlike a big 'fight for the front' outdoor festival, you can simply pick where you want to be. Feeling like someone's been on Santa's Nice List long enough to earn floor seats? You can make that happen.
Gift Idea #5 - Tickets To See Avatar and September Mourning At The Warehouse
Avatar has been to Shreveport a couple of times, and each performance, the local 'freak show' grows. This time around, they're headlining The Riverside Warehouse, and bringing comic-book-infused September Mourning with them.
These two bands will put on a show that will not be soon forgotten, and it will serve as the official kickoff for the 2016 concert season in Shreveport.
