|6||1||CONCACAF Gold Cup|
With the departure of the College World Series and the Gold Cup, the countdown is shaking up a little more than usual this week. While the tail end of the Gold Cup did manage to squeeze in at a respectable number six, its another Cup that’s fueling some excitement. The Davis Cup semi-final between the United States and Spain is just a week away. Still time to get tickets to one of the biggest tennis events in recent memory.
The rest of the top five returns to concerts, where last weeks’ second and third have stepped up to first and second. Maná rises higher again this week, as if buoyed by a well of arcane power, and U2 returns to the countdown in the fifth spot. Lil Wayne returns at number seven. His tour isn’t letting up, boasting a packed schedule all the way through September.
Ghostland Observatory’s schedule isn’t quite so packed, but that just means a bigger demand for seats. It shows as they return to the countdown at number eight. Katy Perry climbs one spot from last week, and, while Taylor Swift has been the only country star on the countdown for a while, Kenny Chesney slides into the number ten spot to give her a little company.
