Catching up this week after a little extended vacation. A week after the ACL lineup announcement and it was nowhere to be found, only resurfacing, a distant last, this week. With room at the top, the esteemed Mr. Bieber moved back in and put down roots, taking it for two weeks in a row. He, Adele, and Taylor Swift eventually broke up this week, as the College World Series enters the top 10 at #2 and Maná returns, as if by magic, to the #3 spot.
The women’s College World Series is already underway, and will last until June 7th or 8th. The ladies are playing at the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City. The men’s College World Series stars up June 18th at TD Ameritrade Park. Previous venue, Rosenblatt Stadium, hosted the event since 1950. The NCAA agreed to keep the CWS in Omaha until 2035 in exchange for the new stadium, so fans won’t have to change their travel plans any time soon.
Soccer appears on the countdown for the past two weeks as the US hosts the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The CONCACAF Gold Cup crowns the regional soccer champion of North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. Play for the cup crosses the country, playing in big venues all across the US for most of June. There is a big semi final match in Houston at Reliant Stadium and the final is being held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
Rounding things out the Glee! Live tour has hung in there for a couple weeks now, followed by a returning Katy Perry. Finally Phish fans may be wondering if they’re going to be at ACL this year.
