Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys tickets go on sale Friday.

There you are, casually flipping through the paper, and suddenly you see that your favorite band is coming to the city--this weekend--but tickets have been sold out for months. Avoid concert neglect syndrome with this handy guide.

Folk rock Break out your bell sleeves--Fleetwood Mac descends on Madison Square Garden on April 8. The cheap seats may have already sold out, but there are still some premium spots ($180) open. (Or hit up Newark on April 24 for more pricing options.) ?Hallelujah? lovers, keep April 6 clear for when Leonard Cohen takes the stage at Radio City Music Hall, and ?Stay? fans, nab tickets to see Lisa Loeb at the Highline Ballroom on March 20.

Jazz Whether you?re familiar with Diana Krall yet or not, we highly recommend witnessing her jazz piano skills firsthand on April 19 at Beacon Theatre.

Pop Following a worldwide tour, Lady Gaga is coming home to NYC. (Admit it, ?Bad Romance? is pretty catchy.) There are still $205 seats left for February 22 and February 23 at the Garden and March 6 and March 7 at the Barclays Center. If she?s not quite your speed, the always-entertaining Rod Stewart takes over the Garden on April 19. And in major news, Alicia Keys just announced upcoming shows at the Barclays Center on April 5 and the Garden on April 11. (Set a reminder; tickets go on sale Friday.)
