After all those months, Mr. Bieber regains the crown only to lose it a week later. It falls to none other than arch boy band rival, One Direction. An unexpected reversal of fortune, especially considering 1D still hasn’t started up their 2013 Tour. Spoiler Alert: it starts in 2013. Maroon 5 enjoys some good fortune of their own, riding the buzz of their tour announcement to the #2 spot.
Fresh off her own tour announcement is Taylor Swift. The Red Tour starts up next spring and rolls right on through summer. It features England’s newest folk-pop sensation, Ed Sheeran, as the opening act. Major buzz on this tour propels Swift to the #5 spot this week, and probably higher next week.
The USGP starts off the bottom five, dropping one spot, followed by George Strait, who turns around last week’s dive and climbs back to the #7 spot. Late season Cowboys fans are putting in some effort, bringing the team back to the #8 slot.
The Heat show up to remind us the NBA season has begun. After clenching the title last year, they’ve got momentum going into this season and are favorites to put another one on the mantle. There’s a lot of basketball between them and the Finals, though, and we’ve got tickets to almost all of it.
