Ticket sales wind down for major events like Kid Rock & Lynyrd Skynyrd and Green Day’s latest tours during the week ending August 31, as compiled by TicketNews.

Veteran punk act Green Day is closing its summer-long North American tour over the weekend. The venture, which launched July 3 at KeyArena in Seattle, completes its nation circuit tonight, August 25, at The Forum in Inglewood, CA, southwest of Los Angeles. Franz Ferdinand is providing support for the final date of the tour. Earlier legs of the tour featured opening sets from The Bravery and Kaiser Chiefs.

As the final weeks of summer unfurl, many of the season’s biggest co-headlined ventures are slowing their pace and closing up shop. Regular touring partners Kid Rock & Lynyrd Skynyrd end their second seasonal run this week with a final show on August 29 at the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul, MN.

Meanwhile, Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire complete the last of their regular concert dates together with shows slated from August 25 at Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA, through August 30 at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY. The ultimate performance, though, will come at the Great Allentown Fair on September 2 in Allentown, PA, where both bands are on the bill for the day’s entertainment. The duel-named Heaven and Hell ends its run with tour partners Coheed and Cambria on August 29 at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ.

Some major single-headliner shows are also close to completion. Incubus has two concerts remaining on its schedule: August 25 at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, AZ, and August 28 at Outside Lands in San Francisco, CA. On the other hand, Taking Back Sunday will spend another month opening for Blink-182’s on-going tour, but the pop rock band has just a couple regular solo shows lined up in the States, including gigs on August 28 at Jones Beach Bay Stage in Wantagh, NY, and August 20 at Virgin Mobile FreeFest in Columbia, MD.

15 for $15 with Napster!Preeminent singer-songwriter James Taylor is closing out a four-show run at Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox, MA, with a special performance. After completing three shows at the open-air venue from August 27-29, Taylor will take the stage one last time on August 30 backed by regional favorites, The Boston Pops. The weekend also heralds the second Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, to be held August 28-30 at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA. The three-day festival’s 2009 headliners are Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band and Tenacious D, filling in for the Beastie Boys.

The NASCAR Nationwide Series: Napa Auto Parts 200 will hit the pavement on August 30 at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal, QC. The race’s start time is set for early afternoon. Sports fans can also catch the first two sessions of the U.S. Open Tennis Championship, both set for August 31, at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Corona, NY.

“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.
