Milwaukee’s Summerfest concerts and a night of comedy with Stephen Colbert are among the highlights in the pack of onsales for the week ending March 15th, as compiled by TicketNews.

Summerfest, billed as the “world’s largest concert,” has concerts from two high profile artists on sale this week. Teen pop sensations the Jonas Brothers have tickets on sale later this week and will be playing at the festival, which takes place over eleven days from June 26 to July 11. In addition, musical legend Stevie Wonder, who is also playing at the festival, has tickets for his performance on sale this week.

In other music news, the annual “True Colors Tour”, aimed at raising awareness of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered (GLBT) issues, has multiple tour dates on sale this week. Headlined by Cyndi Lauper, and featuring many other GLBT artists and allies, the tour will travel throughout the country this summer.

Additional tours with onsales this week include Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney and George Strait. Jack Johnson also has multiple dates on sale this week, as does Alicia Keys.

TV personality and comedy heavyweight Stephen Colbert also has a performance in New York City on sale this week. Best known for his “Colbert Report” faux-news program on Comedy Central, Colbert will host the upcoming “Night of too Many Stars.”

Fans of theatre should note that four of Broadway’s most popular shows have tickets on sale this week for national tours. Wicked will stop in Rochester, NY in the coming months, and Monty Python’s Spamalot has an engagement in San Antonio, TX soon. Jersey Boys will stop in Cincinnati, and The Little Mermaid, Disney’s newest Broadway musical and based on their film, also has dates on sale.

“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.
