Even with the upcoming holidays, there are still a bunch of events going on sale between now and Tuesday. In this case, however, some of the bigger onsales have shifted back a day to today. That is the case with Latin singer Marc Anthony, as well as the 28-date The Voice Tour, whose onsales began this morning. NBA Playoffs home game onsales for the Indiana Pacers and Atlanta Hawks began this morning as well.
All that covered, the highlight of the weekend is 3 Doors Down, which announced yesterday that it is adding 18 additional dates to its acoustic-heavy Songs From The Basement Tour. The outing, which begins on June 3 in Coquitlam, British Columbia, will run for 32 dates before ending on September 11 in Louisville, KY. The band has also scheduled appearances at a number of fairs and festivals throughout the summer, where it will plug back in. Most of the new dates go on sale this Friday, but one concert in Beaumont, TX, goes on sale Saturday, and one in Cincinatti, OH, goes on sale Tuesday.
Ed Sheeran, the rising British singer-songwriter best known for his combination of pop, folk and hip hop soul, announced his second headlining North American tour yesterday. The run will span the last half of August and first half of September. This latest tour is supporting Sheeran's sophomore studio album, x (pronounced "multiply"), which is scheduled for release on June 23.
This new tour marks the first headlining arena tour for Sheeran. Last year Sheeran toured arenas as a supporting act for Taylor Swift's Red Tour.

There are a lot of onsales happening in the next few days, so let's get right to it.
Theater is particularly active this week. First off, the new Broadway musical Aladdin has over 90 shows on sale this coming Sunday for dates on and after September 1. Meanwhile, the tour Jesus Christ Superstar Arena Spectacular has 23 onsales this coming Friday and Monday, and the production of Jersey Boys in San Jose, CA, has eight shows onsale Friday.
Switching to concerts, rock band Aerosmith is joining up with Slash for a tour that begins in May and runs until early September. All 23 concerts go on sale this weekend, with a couple Nevada shows on sale tomorrow, one Illinois show on sale Saturday, and the rest of the concerts on sale Monday.
After an already-successful North American run, Justin Timberlake has this morning announced additional dates to his tour. The 20/20 Experience will now include a return to cities such as Philadelphia, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. The new shows begin in late November and stop just before the winter holidays on Dec. 20.
The new shows will push Timberlake's tour past the one-year mark; he began this world tour on Nov. 6, 2013, in New York City. These dates come after a stint of dates across Europe and in Australia.

Although it doesn't much feel like spring, April is nearly upon us. With it comes the re-awakening of the Broadway stage (yay!); a bunch of fantastic sports playoffs (yay!); and some pretty great tours (yay!).
In concerts, popular acts such as Jimmy Buffett and Bruce Springsteen hit the road. Sports fans have playoffs in basketball and in hockey to look forward to. For theater buffs, Broadway is finally getting back into the swing of things after the winter lull; more than 10 shows will open in April alone.
Here's a closer look at some of the upcoming live events.
Bruce Springsteen: The Boss heads out on another tour, starting April 8 in Cincinnati, OH. The short stint goes through March 18 and wraps in Uncasville, CT.
