The Week in TicketCity Search – December 11th

Hey, looks like that whole Bowl announcement thing happened last Sunday. This week’s top 10 has a certain college football postseason flavor to it as a result. Concerts were not to be completely denied, though. Apparently Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga make for a potent combination, and they managed to hang on to spots in the top 5. The Rose Bowl took the top slot, followed by the Cotton Bowl at #3 and the National Championship Game at #5. The Sugar, Gator, and Alamo Bowls round our little top-bowls-within-the-top-10-list list.

Perhaps illustrative of the “unique” take of American sports fans, another big “football” announcement happened the Friday before the bowl games were set. That was the World Cup draw, which shows up at #9 on the list. While the World Cup demands the attention of most of the world, it doesn’t generate quite the same amount of attention State-side, especially against our home grown flavor of football.

Finally, it appears Nick Jonas has a “side project” band, which explains why people are now searching for him and not the band with whom he is most notably associated. I had no desire to know any of that, but I looked it up anyway.

Cowboys Stadium Sneak Peek

We’ve all waited and the time has come… That’s right, the new Cowboys Stadium officially opens this weekend with it’s first public event headlined by George Strait.  Additional star-studded performances include Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, and Julianne Hough. The public will now have the chance to take in everything about the new stadium – from the seats and views to concessions and restrooms.  There will surely be reviews of it all.  And for those of you attending, we hope you’ll give us your feedback and photos as well.

TicketCity took a tour of the new stadium a few weeks ago and at that point there was clearly still some work to be done.  But the ginormous video display was hoisted and secured, making the rest of the preparations for this opening weekend seem like a piece of cake.  Take a look at our Tour of the New Cowboys Stadium - and a special offer on football tickets for the upcoming season!

For those of you attending the George & Reba show , have fun knowing many of you will be the first to ever sit in that seat at the new stadium.  And if you haven’t gotten your tickets to see the new stadium yet, check out some of these upcoming events:
