Tickets for the latest pair of dates, Aug. 21 and 22, will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 2 at Ticketmaster. Tickets purchased online will include fees, putting the cost at about $30.
There are $20 all-in tickets being that include parking and are being offered by participating Walmart outlets and at the venue box offices.
