The Week in TicketCity Search – September 23rd

Week of
Sept 19th
1 1 ACL Fest
2 2 Texas A&M Football
3 - Journey
4 3 Mississippi State Football
5 4 Texas Longhorns Football
6 6 Dallas Cowboys
7 - Georgia Tech Football
8 10 Justin Bieber
9 - Adele
10 8 Alabama Football

ACL hangs onto the top of the list this week, on the strength of last weekend alone. The festival will likely pass out of the countdown next week. Lots of the TicketCity crew attended with rave reviews all around. I have it on good authority there were more than a few members of the team at the #3 event on the countdown this week as well.

Journey’s show last night at the Frank Erwin Center likely caused their surge to the top three this week. Fear not if you missed them, they’ll be hanging around Texas this weekend, playing shows in Dallas and Woodlands.

College football remains the biggest force on the countdown once more this week, though concert performers are creeping back to the top as the fever pitch of the early season dies down a bit. The Cowboys likewise remain steady at #6.

Taylor Swift couldn’t hold on this week, leaving the countdown for the first time in quite a while. She gives up her seat to previous countdown stalwart, Adele, who returns in that #9 spot.

3 1 Dallas Cowboys

5 5 Selena Gomez
6 8 Washington State Football
7 10 Taylor Swift
8 - Jason Aldean
9 6 Adele
10 - Journey

Wow, football fans, I’m a little disappointed in you this week. Bieber ascendant once more while the NFL preseason is under way and we’re less than two weeks from the first college football games. The home town favorites slide in there at #2 and #3, followed by Mississippi State, who is hanging steady at #4, a fate shared by the other concert performer in the top five this week.

Quite a few holdovers from last week. Washington State climbs a couple spots to kick off the lower five. So does Taylor Swift, who tumbled to #10 last week, but has rebounded a few spots this week. She’s followed by Jason Aldean, who took a week or so off the countdown and is now back at a respectable #8. Adele’s slide continues, ending this week almost at the bottom.

Finally, peeking in at #10 is this week’s countdown newcomer, Journey. Hardly a newcomer to touring, Journey is on the road this summer after releasing a new album, Eclipse, back in May. The current tour includes special guests, and fellow classic rock hit makers, Foreigner and Night Ranger. I believe the show will provide an excellent nostalgia rush, and I will not stop doing so.

The Week in TicketCity Search – October 2nd

It is with no sense of suspense I can announce that ACL once again topped the countdown in this, the week just prior to the festival. As the gray clouds gather, things are set to kick off in just a few hours time, in fact. Looks like it’s going to be a bit damp out there this weekend, so be sure to plan accordingly if you’re heading out there.

Journey pops into the countdown after a long absence. They were last seen back in June as their Revelation Tour was in full swing. Playing a date in Austin probably got them some additional interest on our site this week. Journey fans are quickly running out of dates, as only a few remain before the 2009 Revelation Tour is over.

The rest of the countdown features some of our usual suspects, with Miley Cyrus recovering from her dip last week, and U2 and the Longhorns battling it out for 4th and 5th. Kings of Leon once again appear, if only to let us wonder if they’ll manage to hang around longer than a week again. Aventura also manages to hang on to a spot in the top 10, but just barely, after tumbling from 2 to 10.
