Now that the First Four games have been played, the 2014 NCAA Tournament can truly get underway. We can also start making some comparisons with previous years, and see how things stack up. At this point in the tournament, the average selling price for all NCAA Tournament tickets listed at TicketNetwork.com is $263, about 22% higher than the price at the same point in time for last year's tournament, which was $215. In fact, the price is the highest it's been three years running, up 40% since 2012.
Rapper Eminem and R&B artist Rihanna are joining up this August for a series of concerts dubbed "The Monster Tour." Despite the moniker, the schedule currently only calls for three shows: August 7 at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, CA; August 16 at MetLife Stadium in New York; and August 22 at Comerica Park in Detroit, MI. It therefore closely resembles the brief stint Eminem had in 2010 with Jay-Z, where the two visited each other's home towns. Like Jay-Z, Rihanna resides in New York (though she is originally from Barbados), while Eminem is from Detroit.

So a little earlier, I was sitting at my desk, ready to write all about what a great success the Queen + Adam Lambert tour had this past onsales weekend at TicketNetwork.com. Well, you all know what assuming does to a person! It's not that the trio of Brian May, Roger Taylor, and Lambert didn't indeed have a good weekend; they did. But one artist stood out that much more: Lana Del Rey.
There is a great deal of concert onsale activity this week. Among all of them, that fans are likely most anticipating is the tour featuring Queen + Adam Lambert. They need not wait much longer. Most of the onsales for this tour are taking place between this Friday and Monday.
Other large concert onsales in the next few days includes Lana Del Rey, Skrillex, James Taylor, Tim McGraw, Ray LaMontague, and the B96 Summer Bash on Friday. A few other artists have onsales on Friday and Saturday, including Sarah McLachlan, Rod Stewart & Carlos Santana, and Beck.
Finally, Disney On Ice: 100 Years of Magic has onsales in two cities this Sunday: Long Beach, CA, and Ontario, CA.
