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.

Gold fever this week, of the Cup variety. The CONCACAF Gold Cup reaches the final tomorrow at the Rose Bowl, after a impressive month of games all over the country. The US team will face Mexico in the final, the fifth time these two teams have reached the finals together and the third meeting in a row. The odds are stacked against the US, who is down three losses to one win against the Mexican team in the Gold Cup final.

The esteemed Mr. Bieber hangs onto the number two spot, while Taylor Swift surges back from the sixth spot to capture number three. The College World Series, which is still going strong, drops a bit to number four. The championship series will be held next week, providing ample time to secure your tickets to see who walks out of TD Ameritrade Stadium the new NCAA baseball champs.

There’s a long block of new and returning concert stars up next, starting with Eddie Vedder. The Perl Jam front man is on tour to support his recently released solo album: Ukulele Songs. He’s joined by Sade, returning after a bit of an absence. They’re on tour with their latest album, Soldier of Love, for most of the summer. Poof! Maná’s back! In at number seven, the latin rock quartet returns after a few weeks.

Also of note is the Davis Cup, which enters at number nine this week, and promises to climb a lot higher. The international tennis competition between the US and Spain at the Frank Erwin Center is exactly two weeks off, and tickets are in high demand.

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.

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.
