Tickets to the upcoming tour from the Smashing Pumpkins are among the onsales for the weekend ending September 3, as compiled by TicketNews®.

The pioneers of alternative rock will be touring in support of their recently released album “Oceania,” which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 200. Concert dates on sale throughout the weekend include stops in Boston, MA; Brooklyn, NY; and San Francisco, CA.

Continuing this weekend’s concert onsales are tickets to upcoming shows from The Killers. The rockers, who have been on the North American and European festival circuit this summer, will be hitting the road later this year on their own. The band recently announced the track listing for their forthcoming album “Battle Born,” which is expected to hit stores in the coming months. Tour dates on sale this weekend include shows in the Bronx, NY and Toronto, ON.

Rounding out the holiday weekend onsales are tickets to several 2012 College Football bowl games. Among the Saturday, September 1, onsales are tickets to the Capital One Bowl. With a tie-in for the SEC and Big 10, the bowl is held every year in Orlando, FL, at the Citrus Bowl. Also held at the Citrus Bowl, tickets for the Russell Athletic Bowl are also on sale Saturday. Matching up teams from the ACC and Big East, this year’s game has changed its name from the Champs Sports Bowl to Russell Athletics.

Also among the Saturday onsales are tickets to the Outback Bowl. Held in Tampa, FL, the Outback Bowl will match up teams from the Big 10 and SEC. Finally, tickets go on sale this weekend for the 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl. One of the five Bowl Championship Series games, the Sugar Bowl is held in New Orleans, LA. The game traditionally matches the SEC champion, if the team is not slated to play in the national championship, and an at-large BCS team.

“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.
