1) Commonly abbreviated
"TBA" on tickets
and the like, To Be Announced is a common occurrence in sports and concerts. It simply
means that a contender
or act has not yet been officially announced to appear at the venue by the powers-that-be
Although similar, with a bit of overlap, this is not to be confused with "To Be Determined
" (TBD). That
one implies that
such an announcement cannot be made at all until certain
conditions are met.
2) Apparently, To Be Announced
is also the name of a relatively obscure band.
The tickets for next week's Sixers
game say To Be Announced, because
the other team
forfeited. I guess we'll wait and see who it is.
