Regular readers of this blog may remember that a couple months ago we introduced a summer concerts guide to help concert-lovers to plan their summer's worth of jamming. Well, we're happy to announce that we've completely retrofitted the guide to help you locate any type of major event — concerts, sports, and theater — by region.

The 2014 Summer Events Guide is pretty straight forward. Simply select the region of the United States in which you live, followed by the category for which you're interested in finding events. You'll then be presented with a list of the top events for the remainder of July, as well as August and September. Further links will bring you to a larger selection of events for that month and category by state.

As summer wraps up, we'll be working to continuously update the guide year-round. If there is anything you'd like to see the guide do, comment below to let us know.

10 Best Celebrity Alter Egos

Alter egos

Even the greatest of celebrities have employed alter egos — whether to help them perform onstage, or to try something new in their music, or just because they felt like it. Here are our picks for the top 10 celebrity alter egos.

#1 Beyoncé as Sasha Fierce

Although Beyoncé has a few alter egos under her belt — including her latest, Yoncé, and Mrs. Carter, the queen of her previous solo tour — it all started with Sasha Fierce. Sasha Fierce existed only on stage, allowing Beyoncé to separate Celebrity Beyoncé from Regular Beyoncé. In 2010, she said she had "killed" Sasha Fierce because she no longer needed her; since then, the singer has said, "I think Beyoncé is Beyoncé, Mrs. Carter is Beyoncé, Sasha Fierce is Beyoncé. And I’m finally at a place where I don’t have to separate the two."

What People Are Talking About

Weird Al

Truth be told, Weird Al's comeback was a zillion times better than the one orchestrated by Garth Brooks. (Sorry, Garth.) Weird Al returned to music this week with a new album and five music videos to go along with it. His new songs take on popular songs like Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," Pharrell Williams' "Happy" and Lorde's "Royals." His versions talk about everything from bad grammar to the Illuminati (in a song about foil, no less), and there are more music videos on the way. Welcome back, Weird Al!

If you've been singing nothing but "Fancy" and "Rude" for the last few weeks, you're in luck: rapper Iggy Azalea will team up with Magic! — no doubt to capitalize on the success of their summer hits — in a fall performance in Rochester, MI. Tickets for the show at Meadow Brook Music Festival on Sept. 12 go on sale Monday. Other concerts on sale this weekend include "Bottoms Up" singer Brantley Gilbert; Jason Mraz, who just released a new album called "Yes!"; and Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull.

In theater shows, as Cirque du Soleil Dralion prepares for its return to the U.S., dozens of performances go on sale on Friday. The touring acrobatic show, which draws inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its quest for balance between humans and nature, will visit cities like Charlottesville, VA; Albany, NY; and Wilkes-Barre, PA. Meanwhile, Broadway shows such as The Book of Mormon, Wicked, Pippin, and Motown the Musical offer onsales for their traveling tours.

But it's undoubtedly the NFL that steals the show this week. With tickets to see the Colts, Seahawks, and Vikings on sale this weekend, we're reminded of that time of year everyone's waiting for: football season. We're just 49 days away from kick-off. Not that we're counting.
