At the risk of having my interneting privileges revoked, I won’t make any snarky comments about Rush, who landed at the top of the countdown this week. They’re on the Clockwork Angels Tour, which takes them through August with over 20 more dates. Taylor Swift reverses a downward slide and returns to the #2 spot.

The Lumineers make their countdown debut this week. The indie folk rockers have been raising their profile in the past year or so, and their self titled debut album has been certified Platinum. The group is quite busy for the next couple months, which is good for all the fans who’ll be seeing them all over the country. That includes the fans around Austin at tonight’s show in the shiny new Austin360 Amphitheater.

One Direction falls out of the top three, though that will likely be a brief inconvenience, and the Oaks slips a bit down to #5.

Bruno Mars returns this week after short but strong run earlier this year. His tour has yet to officially kick off, that’s not until June, so he may not have the momentum to hang around too long.

Finally, a little early NFL fever hits the countdown this week. With the official 2013 schedules out and the draft ongoing, it’s not too surprising fans are getting the urge to check out some games.

So many racing puns, so little time… Suffice to say, the US Grand Prix takes the win this week, in what remained a relatively close battle with a very resurgent Taylor Swift. She had dropped to #10 last week after a strong debut, but leaps right back to the #2 spot this week. That leaves former champ 1D two spots out of contention. I wouldn’t worry about the boys, I suspect they’ll be reclaiming the crown soon enough.

Kinda-sorta-not-really out of nowhere, Aerosmith enters the countdown at #4. They’re playing the Frank Erwin Center tonight, so this bit of fortune isn’t really a surprise at all.

In spite of all the other changes in the top 5, the SEC championship holds steady at #5. The regular season of college football is drawing to a close, and soon the bowl frenzy will be upon us. This week the Cotton Bowl makes an appearance, while the BCS slips from #7 to #10. Get a jump on your friends and check out our Bowl game listings.

Carrie Underwood debuts at #6 to start off the bottom five. She’s on the Blown Away Tour, covering North America between now and Summer 2013. She’s not slacking, the tour will rack up over 100 dates, making it a safe bet for one of the top tours of 2012 and 2013.

The Week in TicketCity Search – May 14th

Not what I would have expected, but Tool has reached the top. The alt-metal band’s tour doesn’t kick off until June, but interest has certainly spiked. Some of the earliest dates are around our area, so that may have something to do with it. Following them is Roger Waters, whose Wall Live tour doesn’t start until September but is nearly as hot. Fans are searching early for these tickets. Rounding out the top 3 is the WWE, who have never been hotter, literally, as this is the highest they’ve ever appeared on the countdown.

Things take a turn for the more familiar as the esteemed Mr. Bieber and Lady Gaga complete the the top 5 and usher us to Conan O’Brien at #6. His comedy tour hits Austin tonight, so this last minute surge is not unexpected. Adam Lambert tumbles from an impressive #1 last week, settling down at #7, just ahead of Carrie Underwood, who managed to gain a spot. Rush also tumbled, landing at #9 from #2 last week.

Finally, just like Tool and Roger Waters fans, it seems the Cowboys faithful are shopping early for tickets to the 2010 season. The Dallas team winds up at #10 this week, well ahead of when I’d be expecting to see some NFL presence on the list.

The Week in TicketCity Search – May 7th

The list turned upside down this week. A radical reshaping in the week Post-Derby that sees Lady Gaga out and some interesting newcommers popping in. Of course, since the list includes last weekend, the Derby still appears, managing to cling to the top 5. It was former #10 Adam Lambert who had the best week of all, leaping the entire list to take the #1 spot. The top five spots reverse from Adam through to the Derby, including a resurgent and still esteemed Mr. Bieber.

The lower five sees the WWE pop back in once again, followed by Tool, who’ve been absent for quite a while, but return with new dates this summer in June and July. Veteran rocker Roger Waters of Pink Floyd is setting out on The Wall Live Tour this fall. Dates for the fall tour were only announced recently and there’s big interest already. The tour will see Waters perform Floyd’s famous rock opera The Wall live, similar to his previous Dark Side of The Moon Live Tour.

Another newcommer to the countdown but hardly music in general is the venerable rock band the Eagles. The legendary group, composed of, Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh, and Timothy B. Schmit, are touring jointly with the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban this summer, in keeping with their country rock roots.

The Week in TicketCity Search – April 30th

It’s Derby week, and nowhere is that more apparent than on our countdown. Well, perhaps in Louisville, Kentucky, but only by a little… Yes, the Derby and Oaks won handily this week, knocking Lady Gaga off the top. Her fall was steep, so steep, that she didn’t land at #3. No, that spot went to a resurgent Carrie Underwood, who may be in for a long run thanks to a concert tour that runs almost non-stop through the rest of 2010.

George Strait gains a couple spots to round out the top 5, while Rush remains at a mellow #6 for a third week in a row. Not sure, but that may be the most constant occupation of the #6 slot in all countdown history. Continuing to bounce in and out of the countdown, Drake returns at #7… just head of someone who fell a lot harder than Lady Gaga. Yes, the esteemed Mr. Bieber hit #8 this week, barely ahead of Spurs fans who are following their team into the second round of the NBA Playoffs.

Finally, American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert debuts on the countdown at #10. Not sure what it is about American Idol losers. Granted, you don’t have to do much to outperform a lot of American Idol winners… Lambert is playing a limited set of dates coming up in June for the “Glam Nation” Tour. Currently only one date is set past June, but more could be added, so keep checking back or signup for for updates on the Adam Lambert tickets page.
