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.

The Week in TicketCity Search – September 25th

I say consistency requires she have pink hair.

After 2 weeks of total chart domination, Jay-Z vanishes without a trace, having entered and exited entirely at #1. Guess the fans are a bit fickle. Not surprisingly, the Austin City Limits Music Festival steps up to take his place. We still have passes available for those who want to go, but your options may quickly run out, as this has proven to be one of the most in-demand festivals of its reasonably short history.

Aventura climbs to number 2, while George Strait and the last concert of his 2009 tour bring him back into the spotlight at #3. Fans may have to wait until next year to see George live on stage again. The Longhorns remain on the countdown, though dropping to #4, while U2 holds steady at 5.

The bottom five brings this week’s countdown newcomer, Pink. Finding big success in the early part of this decade with her debut album and the follow-up, Pink’s star ebbed a bit in the mid… have we decided what this decade is called yet? 00′s… Aughts… Whatever… mid-Aughts. In any case, she released the album Funhouse in 2008 and in 2009 began an international tour in support of it. The Funhouse Tour hit North American shores in September.
