From country to comedy, a wide variety of tickets are among the onsales for the week ending Feb. 23, as compiled by TicketNews.
In the realm of comedy, tickets for various well known artists will be available to the public this week, including Ricky Gervais, the British comedian and creator of hit television shows “The Office” and “Extras.” He will appear for two shows this June in New York City. Multiple Emmy Award winner Ray Romano of “Everybody Loves Raymond” fame has three different shows on sale this week, including one his “Raymond” co-star Brad Garrett. Rounding out the major comedy events on sale this week are a pair of shows from Steve Harvey, and separately tickets to Jerry Seinfeld’s upcoming performance at the Chicago Theater.
With the Major League Baseball season rapidly approaching, two storied franchises offer single game tickets this week. The Philadelphia Phillies, who will look to build on their success from last year and return to the playoffs this season, will have tickets on sale Thursday, Feb. 21. In addition, the Chicago Cubs have onsales this week; this season is particularly bittersweet for the team as 2008 marks the 100 year anniversary of the last time the club won a World Series Championship.
Rounding out the week’s ticket sales are a number of concerts, including Country superstars Kenny Chesney and LeAnn Rimes, who have several joint tour dates on sale this week, and the second leg of The Police reunion tour, this time with Elvis Costello. Rock group Widespread Panic and crooner Michael Bublé also have multiple dates on sale this week.
“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.
