The list turned upside down this week. A radical reshaping in the week Post-Derby that sees Lady Gaga out and some interesting newcommers popping in. Of course, since the list includes last weekend, the Derby still appears, managing to cling to the top 5. It was former #10 Adam Lambert who had the best week of all, leaping the entire list to take the #1 spot. The top five spots reverse from Adam through to the Derby, including a resurgent and still esteemed Mr. Bieber.
The lower five sees the WWE pop back in once again, followed by Tool, who’ve been absent for quite a while, but return with new dates this summer in June and July. Veteran rocker Roger Waters of Pink Floyd is setting out on The Wall Live Tour this fall. Dates for the fall tour were only announced recently and there’s big interest already. The tour will see Waters perform Floyd’s famous rock opera The Wall live, similar to his previous Dark Side of The Moon Live Tour.
Another newcommer to the countdown but hardly music in general is the venerable rock band the Eagles. The legendary group, composed of, Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit, are touring jointly with the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban this summer, in keeping with their country rock roots.
