It’s summer concert season and we’ve got a full list of concert performers for you this week. Nary a sporting event in sight. Have a month or so before college football heats up and (maybe) the NFL. Shooting right to the top is Adele, who climbed the chart reliably the past few weeks and has ended up on top. Her restarted tour is back, and tickets for her show at the Frank Erwin Center went on sale today. She takes some of the wind out of the esteemed Mr. Bieber’s sails in reaching the top, moving him down to #2, followed by Taylor Swift, who also had a really good week.

Jason Aldean and Katy Perry round out the top five, a big move up for the country star. Katy’s summer tour continues going strong, despite slipping a bit in the countdown this week. She makes for a good pop pair with Selena Gomez, who holds onto the #6 spot this week. ACL took a bit of a tumble to end this week at #7, where it makes way for our new and returning entries.

Debuting this week is A Perfect Circle. The recently reformed band has been touring on and off since 2010, though there are no plans to release a full album of new material, rather a few new songs. Finally, U2 and Sade end up the week in the #9 and #10 spots, both having been seen on the countdown on and off for months now. U2′s 360° Tour, which has been running since 2009 (with a break), finally comes to an end this week, so this will be your last chance to catch this unique concert event.

Interesting results this week. Looks like last weekend’s Davis Cup had enough enough searches to keep it on the board from Saturday and Sunday alone. ACL surged as we’re nearing the middle of summer and thoughts may be turning to plans for Fall. Well, what passes for Fall around here, at least. ACL is in mid-September this year, so that’s not even technically Fall, just the very end of summer.

Katy Perry jumped a spot to number three, leap frogging last week’s second and third entries. Taylor Swift still ended the week at a respectable number five, while the more recently minted pop star Miss Gomez also fell a spot to number six. Adele made big gains this week as her return to touring nears.

All this week’s new entries are neatly packaged at the end; a nice change from the usual “appearing out of nowhere” and “rushing right to the top.” First off is semi-regular Jason Aldean, who is on tour in support of his recent album My Kinda Party, and had some crossover success with his latest single “Dirt Road Anthem.” Team sports make an uncharacteristic appearance on the summer countdown, with the Phillies making the chart at number nine, and some early shoppers for college football season looking to snag some LSU football tix.

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.

Merely a formality, the lineup arrived this week, and that put the ACL Festival at the top of the list. Headliners include Arcade Fire, Stevie Wonder, Coldplay, and Kanye West. A suitably eclectic mix for a festival known for that very attribute. Even the esteemed Mr. Bieber can’t win on an ACL lineup week, so no shame in holding onto the #2 spot for him. Adele lost the #1 spot for ACL, and tumbled a bit further to the third spot this week. She’s followed by Taylor Swift, who remains pretty solid at #4.

New to the list this week is the Longhorn Baseball team, who, this weekend, will be playing a couple hot games against rival Texas A&M over at Disch-Falk Field. Act fast to get into today’s game, or act in a slightly more leisurely fashion to get tickets to Saturday’s game.

The WWE climbs a spot this week, making room for Australia’s pop queen Kylie Minogue to return to the countdown. Kylie leads off the concert performers that flesh out the rest of the list this week. Selena Gomez falls from #4 to #8 this week, followed by Jason Aldean, who fell right along with Miss Gomez, ending up in the #9 spot. Finally, Katy Perry, whose pop experience points are somewhere between Selena and Kylie, returns to the countdown at #10.

Derby weekend is past, with a big upset, making “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” even more exciting than usual, assuming that’s possible. That leaves the top spots open for a resurgence in concerts. Taking the crown is Adele, who flips up from the number five spot last week, leapfrogging the esteemed Mr. Beiber, who lands at number two. Taylor Swift moves up one, while Selena Gomez returns strong after a few weeks absence.

Rounding out the top 5 is Jason Aldean, who has been drifting in and out of the countdown for a few months now. Britney kicks off the lower half of the countdown as interest in this summer’s Femme Fatale Tour remains strong. The WWE has a strong week, climbing to #7, while Maná is a bit depleted, ending the week down at #8. Hopefully they can be replenished next week.

Returning after a much longer absence is Bruno Mars. He’s on tour now, and currently passing through Texas. Bruno’s debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans earned him a Grammy for “Just the Way You Are.” Bon Jovi pops in at number ten to remind us they’re still on tour as well.
