It will be a busy weekend, with a mixed bag of ticket onsales from pop musicians, country artists, sporting events, and Broadway shows. Several baseball teams, including Indians, White Sox, Rays, and Astros have tickets onsale for their regular games. In theater, big-name shows like Wicked and The Book of Mormon have onsales for their respective U.S. tours.

But it's really concerts that dominate this weekend. Several popular performers will have onsales this weekend, including Katy Perry, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, James Taylor, and Billy Joel. Plus, a few tours will join the lot at right, including:

  • Dierks Bentley, with shows in Charlotte, NC; Raleigh, NC; and Phoenix, AZ going on sale for his Riser Tour 2014
  • Hall & Oates, with six onsales scattered on the East Coast
  • Tegan and Sara, who have 10 onsales for their Let's Make Things Physical Tour
  • James Blunt, with two shows in Riverside, CA and one in Englewood, NJ
  • Panic At The Disco's The Gospel Tour, with 28 shows

In addition, numerous country acts will have ticket onsales this weekend. Jason Aldean adds a show in Birmingham, AL, to his 2014 Burn It Down Tour; Tim McGraw will have three onsales for his Sundown heaven Town Tour 2014; and Willie Nelson has a few additional onsales for his joint tour with Allison Krauss, as well as a few dates for solo shows beginning in August.

Then, of course, there's Luke Bryan, who will be adding two onsales to his tour. While that's not especially notable, it is interesting that Bryan consistently shows up in TicketNetwork.com's weekly onsales posts because he keeps adding new shows to his 2014 That's My Kind of Night Tour. No doubt part of this is because the demand to see Bryan perform live is high.

Last year, Bryan ranked as the second best-selling event on TicketNetwork.com — above One Direction, The Eagles, and George Strait. And he clearly shows no signs of stopping. Bryan's 2014 tour is currently scheduled to go through October 25... in addition to the new EP he's planning to release on March 11, which will provide all-new material for his live sets. For Bryan, this weekend's onsales are likely only the beginning.

Out with the old and in with the new. We're another year down, and it's just about time to look ahead to the coming months. However, as we settle into 2014, let's take a moment to see what happened in terms of ticket sales at TicketNetwork.com in 2013.

As it turns out, for me at least, there are few surprises in the overall Top 10 list:

Indeed, this list looks very familiar for anybody who has followed the monthly Top 10 lists over the past year. First, thanks to some very affordable tickets, and a never-dampening enthusiasm for its popular circus show, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus has the top spot in the overall Top 10. Earlier this year, the show spent three straight months in the number spot. It was also #1 in March. Even when it wasn't number one, it was almost always near the top, usually in the second position.

NFL, Luke Bryan tickets among onsales this week

Onsales This Week

The start of the NFL season is always highly anticipated, so it's not surprising that fans are already snatching up tickets to see their favorite teams compete, both in pre-season games and otherwise. The Cleveland Browns, St. Louis Rams, and Dallas Cowboys are among the most recent NFL teams to make their tickets available for purchase.

The Dallas Cowboys — known as "America's Team" — starts the season with the Hall of Fame game, Cowboys vs. Dolphins, on Aug. 4. Although officials say Quarterback Tony Romo won't play in the July 30 game, he said he wished he was. This comes after Romo had to undergo surgery to remove a cyst on his back back in May.

Meanwhile, both the St. Louis Rams and Cleveland Browns start their preseason games by playing each other on Aug. 8.

In concerts, Luke Bryan will stop at the Watershed Festival on Aug. 2. Then he heads on the road for his Dirt Road Diaries tour, which begins Aug. 8 in Wheatland, CA. His tour dates in Nashville and Cincinnati, concerts that take place in the fall, go on sale this weekend.

Seven summer 2013 albums to look out for

Summer starts Friday, and one of my favorite parts of the season (aside from beaches and warm weather) is the album and concert boom. Lots of artists go on tour over the summer, and to prep for those tours, they usually release a new album. Hot off the heels of Kanye's "Yeezus" (which came out yesterday!), here are seven albums to get hyped for, as well as the artist's latest single and tour info.

Jay Z

The album: Magna Carter Holy Grail

Release date: July 4

Why it could be good: His album title promises something great, and Jay-Z tends to deliver. Although there hasn't been an official single, info about the album has leaked, and the producer list is a great one: Jahlil Beats, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Rick Rubin, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, The-Dream, J. Cole, and Just Blaze are among them.

The tour: Find tickets to Jay-Z with Justin Timberlake on the Legends Of The Summer tour.

May's Top 10 Events: Luke Bryan ascends to the top

May's Top 10 Events

If there is a real winner for not just the entire month, but the entirety of 2013 to date, it's definitely Luke Bryan. Country music has always been one of the biggest genres here at TicketNetwork.com (and in most of America), and more tickets for Bryan's shows have sold at TN.com than for any other country performer all year*.

Country music these days appears to be a lot like pop music (and some would say it's exactly the same thing). A performer that is popular one year might be displaced by another the following year. For a long time, Kenny Chesney was at the top of the genre, followed by Jason Aldean. This year it is Luke Bryan's turn.

Bryan has been in the Top 10 all year, but May is the first month he is at number one. He did briefly made it to the top spot last July as part of a tour with Jason Aldean, but this is the first time he's done it on his own merits.
