Looks like I was wrong about the Davis Cup taking it this week. Hung in at third place, the tail end of the same top three we had last week. This is the weekend for international tennis action at the Erwin Center, and there’s still time to get tickets for the big show. Davis Cup ends up the only sporting event on the countdown this week as we’re in a bit of a dry spot before football season really gears up.
Climbing up to the fourth spot is Katy Perry, who is joined by Selena Gomez to round out the top five. Quite a bit of pop on the countdown. U2 provides a bit more rock flavor, and ACL returns to the list. ACL is still comfortably far away but prices will likely only rise as we get closer to the event.
Britney adds more pop to the list as she returns at number eight. The countdown does a couple hard turns at the end there, swinging way beyond pop with Mötley Crüe, who are celebrating 30 years of heavy metal and gratuitous umlauts in 2011. Finally, Adele’s soulful voice is getting ready to return to touring after taking a break due to a case of laryngitis.
