Have or is having?


Senior Member
I came across this sentence:"My band has two shows this weekend" from a book.
I was wondered if using the sentence below is correct and have the meaning similarly as the above sentence
" My band is having two shows this weekend"
I thought that "this weekend" means a plan in the future so we should use the present continuous tense. Why did they use the present Simple tense?
Thanks in advance.
