The NBA All-Star Game and Daytona 500 are two of the big events with ticket sales closing out during the week ending February 16, as compiled by TicketNews.

Basketball fans have a last chance to purchase ticket packages and game-day passes for the NBA All-Star Game, scheduled for February 15. The Sunday game features a showdown between the best of National Basketball’s Eastern and Western Conferences. The 2009 event will take place at the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, AZ.

Auto racing enthusiasts also have a major weekend event to look forward to: the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ famed Daytona 500. The stock cars will hit the pavement at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL, on Sunday afternoon.

Acclaimed R&B vocalist John Legend will close out his popular North American tour this week with a February 13 concert at Fantasy Springs Resort & Casino in Indio, CA. He’ll be back on the road during the first week of March for the beginning of his European tour to support his most recent studio album, “Evolver.”

Meanwhile, iconic American singer-songwriter Paul Simon will perform his special two-night set at the newly renovated Beacon Theatre in New York City this weekend. The February 13-14 concerts mark the official reopening of the venue, which was closed in fall 2008 for the long-awaited restoration and renovation project.

“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.
