Tickets for upcoming concerts from Jay-Z, as well as tickets for comedian Chelsea Handler’s upcoming stand-up tour, are on sale throughout the weekend ending January 18 as compiled by TicketNews.

Starting off this weekend’s onsales are tickets to two upcoming concerts from rap mogul Jay-Z. Always a big seller and known for his high energy shows, Jay-Z has shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and at Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut on sale throughout the weekend.

Also with concerts on sale this weekend is Mariah Carey. The ’90s superstar continues on her national tour in promotion of her comeback album and will be playing shows in the large markets of Chicago, Las Vegas, and Houston, with tickets for those concerts on sale Saturday morning.

Music legend Jimmy Buffett has several shows among the Saturday onsales as well. Among the tour stops are Orlando and Jacksonville. Continuing the Saturday onsales are tickets to pop-rocker John Mayer’s upcoming Las Vegas concert. A constant mainstay on the radio as well as in the media, Mayer has a large loyal following which should generate into ticket sales.

Switching gears to country music, there are several high profile acts with concerts among the weekend’s onsales. First up, Keith Urban has a concert in Indianapolis among today’s onsales. While the market isn’t huge, Urban has a strong fan base which should help sales. Country group Rascal Flatts has several concerts on sale throughout the weekend, including stops in Indianapolis and Houston.

Finishing up the music onsales, Rodeo Houston, which host a series of concerts featuring some of music’s biggest acts, have tickets on sale Saturday for their 2010 concert series. Among the high profile concerts are shows from Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, the Jonas Brothers, the Black Eyed Peas, and Mary J. Blige.

Also on sale this weekend are tickets to catch some Major League Baseball spring training games. The St. Louis Cardinals, Florida Marlins, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Tampa Bay Rays, Atlanta Braves, and the World Series Champion New York Yankees all have spring training tickets on sale throughout the weekend. Finally, late night talk show host, bestselling author, and popular comedian Chelsea Handler has dates for her upcoming national stand-up tour among today’s onsales. Among the cities on sale are New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas, Seattle, Boston, and Washington DC. Handler is extremely popular with the young adult demographic.

“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.
