Two of Hip-Hop’s leading artists, Jay-Z and Mary J. Blige, are touring together this spring and tickets to their tour are among the onsales for the week ending Feb. 16, based on a review by TicketNews of upcoming shows.

With Kanye West, who separately also has several onsales this week, the three have dominated the Hip-Hop scene in recent years, which should help spark significant fan interest. In addition, West is coming off several Grammy wins for his album, “Graduation.”

Other prominent onsales this week include the Panic at the Disco tour, sponsored by Honda Civic, former Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir with his band Ratdog and rising Indie band The Mars Volta.

In addition, the Chicago White Sox, which are looking to auction off tickets to some of the teams premium games, are also conducting onsales this week, as the Blue Man Group.

“Onsales” is a ticketing industry term describing when tickets initially go on sale to the general public. Each week, tickets are released by promoters, venues and others to dozens of events, but the number of tickets available can vary significantly between locations.
