July's Top 10 Events

I might say I'm surprised that the Ringling Bros. circus secured another month in the first spot of the TicketNetwork.com Top 10*, but as we all know by now, it's been in a stride for most of the year. So instead of focusing on Ringling Bros. for the discussion about July, I'll skip to the runner-up, Garth Brooks.

Single City and Late Announcement Success

The number of tickets for Brooks sold in July here at TN.com showed that, despite the somewhat unique manner of announcing his tour dates, fans can't wait to see him again. Although the number of tickets sold weren't at the same level as say, Jay-Z & Beyonce from earlier this year, they were at a point where I'm pretty confident saying that, had he released his entire schedule all at once, it likely would have been one of the biggest months for concerts we ever saw.

Then, on Saturday, Aussie pop punk band 5 Seconds of Summer has its first major tour on sale. Following its guest spot with One Direction, the freshman band will begin its tour with a few dates in November. It will then pick things back up in May in Europe and Australia, before heading back stateside next July.

Other acts with tickets up for grabs in the coming days include Ray LaMontagne, Chicago, and The Fresh Beat Band.

In theater, Phantom of the Opera has 16 shows onsale for Atlanta, GA, on Sunday. Following it on Monday are eight more shows for the NYC production of Aladdin and on Tuesday eight shows for the Ringling Bros. circus in Pittsburgh, PA.

Finally, in sports, the Cleveland Browns have 10 games on sale this coming Tuesday.

At long last, the big day is nearly upon us. That's right, tickets for Garth Brook's comeback tour start going on sale Friday. If you're in Chicago or the surrounding areas, get ready to buy your tickets because you're up tomorrow. Of course, if you're anywhere else in the country, you're going to have to wait. Unfortunately, Garth hasn't yet released additional dates for the tour, and there isn't any indication of when he's planning to do so. So hold tight, Garth fans who live outside Chicagoland or don't want to travel there, because your day is coming!

Artists joining Brooks in onsales in the coming days include Brantley Gilbert, Dierks Bentley, Iggy Azalea, and holiday favorite Mannheim Steamroller.

Meanwhile, the brand new Broadway production of Aladdin has additional dates going on sale Monday. The 32 new shows start in January 2015. Other theater shows on sale include Cirque du Soleil: Dralion and Phantom of the Opera.

Over in sports, pro football teams continue to put their home games on sale. This Friday, the Arizona Cardinals have eight games on sale, the Baltimore Ravens have 10, and the St. Louis Rams have 16. Finally, the WWE has 19 of its various shows up for grabs.

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.
