The Week in TicketCity Search – May 6th

TicketCity Week in Search

1 3 Kentucky Derby
2 4 Kentucky Oaks
3 7 Maná
4 2 Taylor Swift
5 5 Adele
6 1 Justin Bieber
7 - ACL Fest
8 - Britney Spears
9 - Arcade Fire
10 9 WWE

Small surprise in the top 5 this week. Not surprising is the Derby topping the list, with the Oaks right behind. The Oaks is today, but still time to get into the big race tomorrow. The Derby promises to be exciting as ever this year, and TicketCity personnel are down in Louisville to make sure you get your tickets.

The small surprise this week is Maná managing bypass some pretty famous performers to end up the top concert act on the list. Pretty magical, if you ask me.

The famous in question follow Maná, starting with Taylor Swift and ending up with the esteemed Mr. Bieber, who takes a pretty big tumble from the top of the list. ACL Fest follows as buzz builds for the announcement of the 2011 line-up. The full list goes out May 17th, so the fest will probably hang around the list for a few more weeks before the summer lul sets in.

Britney and Arcade Fire both return to the list after absences of various lengths. Recently ever-present in the bottom 5, the WWE again rounds out the list at #10 this week.

The Week in TicketCity Search – March 11th

TicketCity Week in Search

1 1 Justin Bieber
2 - Big 12 Tournament
3 5 Lady Gaga
4 - Houston Rodeo
5 - Arcade Fire
6 - Big East Tournament
7 3 Taylor Swift
8 6 WWE
9 2 Lil Wayne
10 - Bon Jovi

Bigger shifts this week as all the conference level college basketball tournaments play out. This little appetizer to March Madness “proper” posted two entries, the Big 12 Tournament and the Big East Tournament. The SEC Tournament, in case anyone was wondering, was #11. The selection show for the NCAA Tournament is this Sunday. TicketCity will have some extended hours to accommodate buyers who want to get tickets once the teams are announced.

The esteemed Mr. Beiber remains in the #1 spot, while Gaga climbs up a couple spots at the expense of the departed Adele and Taylor Swift. Swift hung in there, but dropped to #7. While one might think the Houston Rodeo, arriving at #4, is sporting related, the major attraction are the concerts that happen every night. Still some big names to go, ranging from KISS to Alan Jackson.

Arcade Fire debuts on the countdown at #5. The… let’s see… one… two… three… um, there’s more… five… six… eight! The eight member Canadian indie rock band from Montreal recently won the Grammy for Album of the Year for The Suburbs. They have a pretty crowded touring schedule starting up in April.

Rounding out the list the Wresltmania-bound WWE falls a few spots to #8, and Lil Wayne takes a big stumble from #2 to #9. Bon Jovi sneaks back into the countdown at the end.

Elton John Will Headline Lollapalooza 2010 or maybe SoundGarden

April 1st (FOOLS) – Seriously though, the official Lollapalooza 2010 lineup hasn’t been announced but the organizers are giving us hints. So far the best guesses for top billing headlining acts include:

SoundGarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes and Phoenix.

By the way, Elton John tickets are available too.
