Like last week, the next few days of this week are going to be quite busy, with a lot of activity in concerts, sports, and theater. However, one of the onsales we'll be paying particular attention to is that of the New York Yankees. That's because single game tickets for Yankees home games go on sale this coming Monday, February 24.

Of course, we're really interested to see how well Yankees tickets sell in light of Derek's Jeter's recent announcement that he is retiring after the upcoming season. I don't think anybody doesn't think they'll sell extremely well — the final home game and final regular season game ought to do particularly well — but we are excited to see how the retirement affects demand.

We already have some preliminary answers to that. More than a week after the announcement, prices have spiked. Last Friday, I noted that the average selling price for Jeter's last home game on September 25 had risen almost $250 from before the announcement to after it. Today I can report that the after-announcement selling price is now $505, almost $100 more than seven days ago.

Concert news

The 2014 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival lineup features more than 100 acts, including Elton John, Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Jack White, Vampire Weekend, Arctic Monkeys, Frank Ocean, and Janelle Monae.

This year's festival will take place in Manchester, TN, June 12-15. Tickets officially go on sale this Saturday, Feb. 22, at noon.

Particularly notable is the return of Kanye West, who hasn't performed at the festival since some drama went down in 2008. As the story goes, West was loudly booed off the stage after he arrived nearly two hours late for his set. Following the incident, West (in the kind of move only Kanye could do) went on an all-caps rant against the festival. His return to Bonnaroo should certainly be interesting.

Check out the full list of 2014 Bonnaroo performers after the cut. If you're thinking of attending, check out these 10 tips for surviving a festival, as well as these five extra suggestions to guarantee a great experience!
