Ticket sales are winding down for U.S. music festivals like Lollapalooza and Bethlehem Musikfest during the week ending August 10, as compiled by TicketNews.

The 2009 Lollapalooza festivities will grace Grant Park in Chicago, IL, this weekend for the fifth year. The three-day destination festival runs August 7-9 and includes headline performances by Depeche Mode, Tool and The Killers on the Chicago 2016 stage. For fans seeking an alternative to the main headliners, competing sets will be showcased each night on the Budweiser stage from the likes of Jane’s Addiction, Kings of Leon and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

This summer’s Bethlehem Musikfest is entering its final week of headline events at Sands RiverPlace in Bethlehem, PA. The final performers for this year are Third Eye Blind with Matt Nathanson (August 4), The B52s and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts (August 5), Puddle of Mudd with Trapt and Stasis (August 6), Pat Benatar and Blondie with The Donnas (August 7), and George Thorogood & The Destroyers and Jonny Lang (August 8). The 2009 concert series closes down on August 9 with a headline performance by classic folk-rock trio Crosby, Stills & Nash.

TFL and ATBS for ticketing professionals

After several national tour legs, Coldplay also wraps its U.S. stint this week. The piano-driven band closes out its run on August 9 at Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa, FL, then heads overseas for another round of European concert dates. Music fans looking for more of an edge should plan to catch one of Tool‘s final non-festival concerts this week. Before taking the stage at Lollapalooza on August 8, the alt-metal group has some final headline gigs set for August 4 at K-Rock Centre in Kingston, ON; August 5 at The Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto, ON; and August 7 at PNC Pavilion at Riverbend in Cincinnati, OH.

Wolfgang's Vault - Get SkinnedNeo-soul singer Maxwell has been at the top of his game this summer with a hit album and his triumphant return to the national concert circuit. The final date of his summer tour is slated for tomorrow, August 5, at the Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham, NC. Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg and Slightly Stoopid are in the final days of their co-headline trek, which closes August 8 at Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA. Rising folk-rock band Fleet Foxes is also ending a North American venture over the weekend with five performances scheduled from tonight, August 4, at Massey Hall in Toronto, ON, through August 9 at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN.

In the world of sports, mixed martial arts fans can catch UFC 101 this Saturday, August 8, at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, PA. The main event of the day features UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn taking on contender Kenny Florian. Later this weekend, stock cars will hit the pavement at Watkins Glen International Speedway in Watkins Glen, NY, for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at The Glen on August 9.

“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.
