After 2 weeks of total chart domination, Jay-Z vanishes without a trace, having entered and exited entirely at #1. Guess the fans are a bit fickle. Not surprisingly, the Austin City Limits Music Festival steps up to take his place. We still have passes available for those who want to go, but your options may quickly run out, as this has proven to be one of the most in-demand festivals of its reasonably short history.
Aventura climbs to number 2, while George Strait and the last concert of his 2009 tour bring him back into the spotlight at #3. Fans may have to wait until next year to see George live on stage again. The Longhorns remain on the countdown, though dropping to #4, while U2 holds steady at 5.
The bottom five brings this week’s countdown newcomer, Pink. Finding big success in the early part of this decade with her debut album and the follow-up, Pink’s star ebbed a bit in the mid… have we decided what this decade is called yet? 00′s… Aughts… Whatever… mid-Aughts. In any case, she released the album Funhouse in 2008 and in 2009 began an international tour in support of it. The Funhouse Tour hit North American shores in September.
