TicketCity Week in Search

Week of
Feb. 13th
1 - New York Knicks
2 2 Madonna
3 3 Drake
4 - Maná
5 5 San Antonio Rodeo
6 7 Justin Bieber
7 6 Van Halen
8 - Adele
9 - Kevin Hart
10 - Houston Rodeo

Well, ordinarily I’d be wondering why the Knicks came out of nowhere to capture the top spot on the countdown this week, but it was fairly hard to escape the hailstorm of media coverage garnered by one Jeremy Lin. Were it not for Mr. Lin, the countdown would have been concert exclusive.

Madonna and Drake remain stationary in the second and third spots, while Maná returns to the countdown with a new tour. They were quite popular on the countdown during their last tour, but don’t worry, I think I used up all my role-playing terminology puns then.

Down in the bottom five, recent Grammy sweeper Adele appears. Currently no dates are available, but she has stated she’ll be working on a new album soon and so another tour will likely not be far behind. Kevin Hart takes over comedy duties from Daniel Tosh this week, and the Houston Rodeo rounds out the bottom five as the San Antonio Rodeo did for the top five.

1 2 Justin Bieber
2 3 Taylor Swift
3 9 Davis Cup
4 7 Maná
5 - U2
6 1 CONCACAF Gold Cup
7 - Lil Wayne
8 - Ghostland Observatory
9 10 Katy Perry
10 - Kenny Chesney

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.

1 3 CONCACAF Gold Cup
2 2 Justin Bieber
3 6 Taylor Swift
4 1 College World Series
5 - Eddie Vedder
6 - Sade
7 - Maná
8 - Britney Spears
9 - Davis Cup
10 7 Katy Perry

Gold fever this week, of the Cup variety. The CONCACAF Gold Cup reaches the final tomorrow at the Rose Bowl, after a impressive month of games all over the country. The US team will face Mexico in the final, the fifth time these two teams have reached the finals together and the third meeting in a row. The odds are stacked against the US, who is down three losses to one win against the Mexican team in the Gold Cup final.

The esteemed Mr. Bieber hangs onto the number two spot, while Taylor Swift surges back from the sixth spot to capture number three. The College World Series, which is still going strong, drops a bit to number four. The championship series will be held next week, providing ample time to secure your tickets to see who walks out of TD Ameritrade Stadium the new NCAA baseball champs.

There’s a long block of new and returning concert stars up next, starting with Eddie Vedder. The Perl Jam front man is on tour to support his recently released solo album: Ukulele Songs. He’s joined by Sade, returning after a bit of an absence. They’re on tour with their latest album, Soldier of Love, for most of the summer. Poof! Maná’s back! In at number seven, the latin rock quartet returns after a few weeks.

Also of note is the Davis Cup, which enters at number nine this week, and promises to climb a lot higher. The international tennis competition between the US and Spain at the Frank Erwin Center is exactly two weeks off, and tickets are in high demand.

1 2 College World Series
2 1 Justin Bieber
3 - Boston Bruins
4 5 CONCACAF Gold Cup
5 - Rush
6 3 Maná
7 6 Taylor Swift
8 - Weezer
9 - Phish
10 - Selena Gomez

The winner this week is a bit of an aggregate, since there were a lot of terms that all suggested people were looking for the NCAA Baseball playoffs, which, of course, culminate in the College World Series. Just a bit tidier this way. If you’re looking for tickets to the big super regional games at Disch-Falk Field this weekend, you can find those here: NCAA Baseball Regionals Tickets.

The esteemed Mr. Bieber couldn’t stand up to the aggregate power of NCAA baseball this week, and slips to the second spot. One of this month’s many other championship contests checks in at #3 as Bruins fans, who haven’t seen a Stanley Cup contest since 1990, eagerly snap up tickets. That is quite a long wait, so no surprise the Bruins faithful are packing TD Garden. With the series tied 2-2, they’ll have one more home game June 13th.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup follows closely behind the Stanley Cup, leading us to the group of concert performers that round out the list. Rush returns as they have a show on the 12th at the Erwin Center. Maná’s reserves run low and drop to #6 this week. They really need to tour with these guys.

A few entries pop back into the countdown after Taylor Swift, who falls again this week. Weezer, Phish, and Selena Gomez all have been here before, some quite recently, but have lacked the staying power to hang onto the top 10 week to week.

1 5 Adele
2 6 Justin Bieber
3 4 Taylor Swift
4 - Selena Gomez
5 - Jason Aldean
6 8 Britney Spears
7 10 WWE
8 3 Maná
9 - Bruno Mars
10 - Bon Jovi

Derby weekend is past, with a big upset, making “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” even more exciting than usual, assuming that’s possible. That leaves the top spots open for a resurgence in concerts. Taking the crown is Adele, who flips up from the number five spot last week, leapfrogging the esteemed Mr. Beiber, who lands at number two. Taylor Swift moves up one, while Selena Gomez returns strong after a few weeks absence.

Rounding out the top 5 is Jason Aldean, who has been drifting in and out of the countdown for a few months now. Britney kicks off the lower half of the countdown as interest in this summer’s Femme Fatale Tour remains strong. The WWE has a strong week, climbing to #7, while Maná is a bit depleted, ending the week down at #8. Hopefully they can be replenished next week.

Returning after a much longer absence is Bruno Mars. He’s on tour now, and currently passing through Texas. Bruno’s debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans earned him a Grammy for “Just the Way You Are.” Bon Jovi pops in at number ten to remind us they’re still on tour as well.
