The final call for tickets to special events, like the Change Rocks benefit for Barack Obama featuring the surviving members of the Grateful Dead, is going out during the week ending October 13 as compiled by TicketNews.
In addition to the political event, ice skating champion Kristi Yamaguchi is also hosting her annual televised ice show this weekend. The October 12 “One Rockin’ Night” event will be headlined by the tween heartthrob trio, Jonas Brothers. Disney channel darlings Demi Lovato and Jordan Pruitt will also appear.
Some major musical acts are also closing their box office shutters this week, including Carlos Santana, who is slated to perform the final show of his North American tour’s fall leg on October 12. Country music star Toby Keith is performing his last show of the season on Thursday, October 9, followed on Saturday by southern rock’s iconic Allman Brothers Band, whose tour was momentarily sidelined earlier in the year due to Gregg Allman’s treatment for Hepatitis C.
Sports fans have a last chance to grab tickets to the U.S. Men’s Soccer game against Cuba on Saturday at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. The team plays on through a November 19 showdown with Guatemala in Colorado.
“Last Chance” information is compiled at the beginning of the week, based on touring acts whose current itineraries are closing over the course of that week. The availability of tickets for Last Chance events depends on primary and secondary seller inventory, and may vary as tickets are sold in the days leading up to each event.
