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.

With more than two years and 1,000 shows under its belt, Newsies will say goodbye to Broadway. The Disney musical is scheduled to close on Aug. 24 at the Nederlander Theatre. But it's not time to say so long for good — a national tour commences October 2014. The North American tour will visit cities across the U.S. and Canada beginning Oct. 11, 2014 and continuing through Aug. 16, 2015, with more dates likely to be announced.

Newsies on Broadway became a somewhat-unexpected hit for Disney. The company originally thought they would develop the musical for regional, stock, and amateur markets but were surprised when the musical fared well as a Broadway production. It was an especially welcome success, given that the original film version from 1992 didn't do well. In comparison, the Broadway version has racked up more than $100 million, while the movie version earned a mere $3 million.

See below for the production's upcomnig tour dates and visit the Newsies for more information on tickets.
