If this One Direction streak continues, I will rapidly run out of puns for the title of this update. Continue it does, with another strong #1 placement by the latest set of lads from the UK to have enthralled audiences stateside. The Kid’s Choice Awards #2 spot on the countdown is all the more impressive as it represents the short rush between last week’s update and the actual award show taking place the next day.

#3 goes to Kids Choice Award selection for Favorite Male Singer, who, no doubt, narrowly edged out Toby Keith for the prize. Mr. Beiber also won for Biggest Slime of the Night.

Rounding out the top five we have the Rangers. MLB Opening Day is on the books, but the Rangers home opener is tonight in Arlington.

Springsteen leads off the bottom five, with a boost from last week’s #8 spot. The Derby holds steady at #7 while the Masters climbs a couple spots as well. Still have time to get down to Augusta for the championship rounds this weekend.

Finally, Tosh pops back into the countdown, and Aerosmith’s “Global Warming Tour” with Cheap Trick brings us to a close.

The Boss lost his top spot this week to the whims of a more recent generation, Eddie Vedder fans. Vedder and his ukulele are playing dates across the lower Lower 48 in April and May. Vedder’s touring in support of his recent solo release Ukulele Songs.

Classics abound this week, as Madonna secures the #2 spot, fresh off the Super Bowl half-time show. Her latest world-wide tour heats up this summer and fall. Madonna’s new album, MDNA, hits (some) shelves and (mostly) pod-like devices March 26th.

Drake slips to the third spot, while comedian Daniel Tosh and the SA Rodeo round out the top five. Van Halen kicks off the bottom five, slipping from the #4 spot last week. Beiber fans steadily checking for new concert dates keeps him safe at #7.

Rounding things out this week we have a boy named Andrea and the Derby. Looks like some early shoppers looking for deals for the big race in Louisville. Rest assured, you’ve still got a few months to secure your tickets and pick out your hat. Though if the Derby remains on the countdown the entire time, I will rapidly run out of hat jokes.

The Week in TicketCity Search – October 1st

Combining all the various terms people used to find this weekend’s Texas-OU game, there really was no contest, despite the fact that ACL did put up a pretty impressive set of numbers too. The numbers are even higher than they were last year. Thought perhaps the recent UCLA game would dampen enthusiasm a bit, but it appears this game is immune that sort of effect. This will be two big weekends in a row, Texas-OU followed by ACL.

Gaga held on #3, while Daniel Tosh, who had made a brief appearance on the list a few weeks back in the bottom 5, returns at #4. The Tosh.0 star is one of the few comedians who have cracked the top 10, making this week all the more notable as another, Chelsea Handler, appears as well. Her show is down in nearby San Antonio tonight.

Drake climbs a bit to #8, and while I should just count Phish search as part of ACL at this point, I don’t and continue to let them hang around. Still pointedly avoiding a large amount of jokes based on their appearance on The Simpsons back in 2002. So, they’re on October 8th, Phish fans, don’t space on the date.

The Week in TicketCity Search – September 10th

You may not have noticed, but I didn’t post this last Friday. So today we have two lists. Exciting, I know, so let’s dive right in.

Football season gets into full swing with both regular season NFL and NCAA games. That means our usual concert heavy list has been taken over by large men with shoulder pads. If this was the 80′s, then most of the female concert performers would at least have those in common with the football players. For two weeks in a row our local football team has topped the list, dethroning the esteemed Mr. Bieber. Yes, he may have 3% of Twitter’s entire network capacity devoted to him, but even he can’t stay on top in the first month of football season.

Still ongoing, the US Open mills about in the middle of the list. While the Dallas Cowboys are the only NFL team with enough juice to make and remain on the list in the midst of high levels of college football interest. Of the college football teams that find favor, no surprise that schools from the SEC and Big 12 are heavily represented.

The concert performers that mange to fill in the cracks between football teams have been bouncing around quite a bit the past few weeks. Last week, Eminem managed to find a spot in the lower 5, while this week 3 bands that constantly warp in and out of the list appear once more, Dave Matthews Band, Phish, and Rush.
