Baseball games and baseball park concerts highlight this week’s top events on StubHub.

It’s all about All-Star week in sports as the MLB’s All-Star game sits at number one with tonight’s Home Run Derby coming in at number two in terms of sales. From there, all three Red Sox games against the Royals this week make the list as Boston tries to right the ship in the second half of the season and make a push for another World Series run.

A Beyonce and Jay Z show tops the list for the third week in a row as the couple visits the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Narrowly behind them is Billy Joel’s show at Wrigley Field this Friday. No one can hit a “Take me Out the Ballgame” piano solo like Billy. Jason Aldean hits two Ohio ballparks when he visits Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati just after his Progressive Field show in Cleveland.
