Concerts from Madonna and Tina Turner top the onsales for the weekend ending May 12, as compiled by TicketNews.

The Material Girl kicks off her national tour this summer following the release of her latest album “Hard Candy.” Tickets to what is sure to be one of the hottest shows of the year will be on presale beginning Monday, May 12. Also going on sale Monday are tickets to Tina Turner’s latest concert tour. The singer will have several tour stops, including concerts in Chicago, Miami, and Boston on sale. Monday’s onsales also mark the return of wildly popular early ’90’s teen heartthrobs New Kids on the Block. The boy band, now all grown up, will re-unite for a national concert tour, with shows in Toronto, Boston, and New Jersey on sale Monday, with other dates continuing to go on sale in upcoming weeks.

The weekend also sees concert ticket sales from several other popular recording artists. Alternative rockers Nine Inch Nails have several shows on sale Saturday, including stops in Seattle, Cleveland, and Minneapolis. Music legend Stevie Wonder has a concert in Vancouver on sale Friday morning.

Two popular Disney artists, Aly and AJ and High School Musical’s Corbin Bleu each have concerts on sale this weekend. Also, Elton John has an additional concert in Alaska on sale this weekend as well.


Rounding out the weekend’s musical acts are concerts from former American Idol contestants Carrie Underwood and Daughtry, as well as shows at the Hollywood Bowl from Feist and Gnarls Barkley.

The weekend offers tickets to two high profile soccer matches. Tickets for the upcoming game between Brazil and Venezuela are on sale today, as are tickets for the MLS match between the New England Revolution and FC Dallas. Both matches will be played at Foxboro Stadium in Massachusetts.

Finally, this weekend offers tickets for the all-star production of Les Miserables which will be performed at the Hollywood Bowl this summer. In addition to a cast that includes several popular Broadway theater actors, controversial comedienne Rosie O’Donnell will be a part of the musical production.

“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.
