|1||1||College World Series|
|3||4||CONCACAF Gold Cup|
No change in the top 2 this week, as CWS fever has struck pretty hard this week. Lots of folks hungry to check out the CWS in its brand-new venue in Omaha, TD Ameritrade Park. Game 1 kicks off this very weekend, leading to a week and a half of top notch college baseball action. The esteemed Mr. Bieber hangs in at #2 this week, and, if the smoke rising from Vancouver is any indication, the Stanley Cup has been decided, giving the Gold Cup room to move into the #3 spot this week.
The rest of the list is all concerts, with rockers Widespread Panic in the lead this week at #4. They played a 2 night stand for ACL Live at the Moody Theatre, and Austinites were eager to see the shows. As they’ve since moved on, I don’t think they’ll be hanging on to the #4 spot next week. Rush is apparently in no hurry to move from the #5 spot and Taylor Swift jumps up one spot this week.
Katy Perry returns once more, with Paul McCartney returning after a slightly longer absence. He’s playing two big shows at Yankee Stadium in mid-July, the first of a group of shows over the summer at major ballparks across the country. U2 returns as the long delayed North American legs of the 360° tour are once again underway. Wrapping things up is Blink-182, passing by the countdown once again as they are scheduled to play dates in late summer that “may” be in support of a new album, assuming that album is finished in time.
