The Celtics will open at home this Tuesday against the Brooklyn Nets. The team’s preseason opener was in Turkey where they lost to Fenerbahce Ulker 97-91. The Celtics then beat Milano 105-75, however, evening out their record 1-1. They returned to Boston last Monday hopefully after bonding as a cohesive unit. After playing the New York Knicks in CT this past weekend, catch them at the TD Garden on Tuesday to see if they can make a mark in the preseason.

The New England Patriots will come home from Seattle for a battle against the New York Jets this weekend. See if Tom Brady and the Patriots can beat out the Jets in Game 7. The game starts at 4:15PM on Sunday at Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium.

The Wilbur Theatre will host Glen Campbell this Wednesday for what is sure to be an tremendously moving night of music. Campbell, after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s over a year ago, has proven that music is something he will never forget. Yes, he will forget simple things and is likely to sound confused, but on stage with a guitar in his hand, Glen Campbell is still able to stun audiences with the emotion and power of his music. Singing his most familiar hits from the ’60s and ’70s, Campbell is sure to leave an impact on the audience at the Wilbur Theatre this Wednesday.

Primus comes to Boston’s Orpheum Theatre this Saturday as part of the band’s unique 3D fall tour. Everyone in the audience will be given 3D glasses in order to fully experience the groundbreaking audio and visual performance of Primus as they perform two full sets. The performance will feature music from Primus’ latest album, “Green Naugahyde.” See frontman Les Claypool and his band on Saturday at 8PM.

War Horse continues its two-week run at the Boston Opera House. The Tony Award winning drama, based off the book of the same name by Michael Morpurgo, was adapted by Nick Stafford for the stage production. Despite the author’s hestitance, the play opened to huge success on Broadway in 2011. Show times are at 7:30PM Tuesday-Thursday, 8PM Friday and Saturday and 6:30PM on Sunday. Matinee performances will also be held on Saturday and Sunday.
