When music’s biggest names are calling it quits, fans will flock to give them a proper send-off. In the wake of announcing their final farewell tours, Elton John and Paul Simon are heating up secondary ticket sales. Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Tour has been a consistent seller for weeks now, and claimed another eight spots on yesterday’s Top 20, including the No. 1 spot for a gig at Chicago’s United Center this fall. Paul Simon, who announced his Homeward Bound Farewell Tour yesterday, snagged three spots for his final 20-date North American trek.

Fellow music legends Def Leppard, Journey and James Taylor accounted for three more spots in the bottom half of the list with their respective summer tours.

An eclectic mix of sports events were able to squeak into the concert-heavy list, including the National Finals Rodeo and last night’s Clippers – Mavericks game. This weekend’s Monster Jam in Dallas also made a surprising appearance at the No. 2 spot.
