WWE SmackDown: WWE SmackDown is a professional wrestling television program for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). As of 2010 it airs on MyNetworkTV in the United States as WWE Friday Night SmackDown. The show’s name is also used to refer to the SmackDown brand, in which WWE employees are assigned to work and perform on that program; the other program and brand currently being Raw. It is currently the only television broadcast for the SmackDown brand, though at one point WWE Velocity also featured SmackDown branded wrestling.

From its launch in 1999, SmackDown broadcast on Thursday nights, but as of September 9, 2005, the show moved to Friday nights. The show originally debuted in the United States on the UPN television network on August 26, 1999, but after the merger of UPN and the WB, SmackDown began airing on The CW in 2006. The show remained on the CW network for two years until it was announced that it would move to MyNetworkTV in October 2008. SmackDown is set to move from MyNetworkTV to Syfy in October 2010.

Due to time differences, SmackDown premieres a few hours earlier in Ireland and United Kingdom and a day earlier in Australia, India and Philippines than the United States.

ABOUT THE EVENT
Circuit of The Americas (COTA) is thrilled to announce a very special concert performance by Elton John & His Band on Sunday, October 25, 2015, following the FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX (F1 USGP). One of the most acclaimed and beloved artists of our time, his spectacular stage shows are attended by audiences around the globe. Race fans will enjoy a turbocharged two-hour set featuring all of the iconic hits and classic album tracks spanning Elton’s incredible five-decade career on the new festival lawn located in the Circuit’s north infield. Accompanying Elton on stage will be his band featuring, Nigel Olsson on drums (part of Elton’s original three-piece band) as well as musical director Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band full-time a year later) on guitar, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, and Kim Bullard on keyboards.

Elton John is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 37 gold and 27 multi-platinum albums as well as 58 Billboard Top 40 singles in the United States, and he has sold more than 250 million records worldwide. Elton holds the record for the biggest-selling single of all time, Candle in the Wind 1997, which sold 33 million copies, as well as for most appearances on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, with his 2013 single “Home Again” marking his 69th entry. He has also written the music for stage and screen successes Billy Elliot: The Musical, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida, and The Lion King, which was recently named the highest-grossing stage show or film release in the world.
Among the many awards and honors bestowed upon him are five Grammys, a Grammy Legend award, a Tony and an Oscar, a Best British Male Artist BRIT Award, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Kennedy Center Honor, Legend of Live Award, 12 Ivor Novello Awards and a knighthood from HM Queen Elizabeth II for “services to music and charitable services.” Elton has recently been named the first recipient of the BRITs Icon Award, which recognizes the very highest level of British music achievement, presented only to iconic artists whose writing, recording and performances set them apart as having made a lasting impact on the nation’s culture.
