The coming few days feature some of the most anticipated onsales of the 2014 concert season. First up is Jay-Z's and Beyonce's On the Run Tour. The husband-wife dual-headliner begins June 25 in Miami Gardens, FL, and ends August 5 in San Francisco, CA. Most of the performances have onsales tomorrow; the onsale date for one concert in E. Rutherford, NJ, is still to be determined.

Next up are some additional onsales for Paul McCartney. Most of the concerts for the 2014 leg of his Out There! Tour have already gone onsale, but the rocker recently added dates in Los Angeles and Phoenix. McCartney also added a concert at San Francisco's Candlestick Park, returning to the venue a couple years short of 50 years after The Beatles played their final concert there. This time the roles are reversed and McCartney is wishing farewell to the park.

The coming week has many more onsales, including ones for Miley Cyrus, Kings of Leon, The Lion King, and the Dallas Cowboys.

NFL Ticket Sales Take Off Following Schedule Release

When it comes to the football, there never seems to be a true offseason. Every event that happens in the NFL makes headlines, including last week's regular season schedule release. The schedule was officially announced last Wednesday at 8 p.m., and immediately following the release, there was an influx of customers visiting TicketNetwork.com looking for tickets to the upcoming season.

Within 24 hours of the announcement, tickets to home games for all 32 teams were sold through our marketplace. So far, the top-selling team has been the Dallas Cowboys, who have accounted for nearly 10% of all the football tickets sold this past week. Dallas has a tough schedule of home games this season, including their opening week game against San Francisco.

While Dallas had the highest volume of tickets sold, it was the Denver Broncos which had the highest average selling price (see table below). Fresh off losing in the big game, Denver is among the favorites to win the championship this season. Their home schedule includes games against Indianapolis, San Francisco, as well as divisional rivalry games against San Diego and Kansas City.

Although the season is still months away, the NFL will continue to be in headlines nearly every week (the draft is only about a week away) and before you know it, the season will be ready to kick-off.

Clippers Owner Accused of Making Racist Remarks

Sports news

Los Angeles Clipper owner Donald Sterling was caught on tape making racist remarks. Sterling told his girlfriend, V. Stiviano, he didn't want her bringing black people to his games; his anger was ignited after she posted a photo on Instagram of her and Magic Johnson. The audio was originally posted by TMZ.

Sterling and the Clippers released a statement shortly thereafter stating, "We have heard the tape on TMZ. We do not know if it is legitimate or it has been altered," the statement said. "We do know that the woman on the tape -- who we believe released it to TMZ -- is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family, alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would 'get even.'"

Many reacted to the audio, including Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, and President Obama. The NBA is currently investigating.
