Concerts have the upper hand this week, with a 6-4 edge. It’s really 7-3, since the Houston Rodeo makes it to the list on the strength of their concert line-up this year, which features Lady Antebellum, John Legend, ZZ Top, Train, and Alan Jackson, among many others. At the top is Drake, who enjoys a strong jump from the fifth spot last week. He dethrones Van Halen, though they were a close #2.

The Super Bowl surges back to the third spot, followed by country sensation Jason Aldean. Aldean is on tour and will be stopping by the Houston Rodeo as well. The Heat round out the top 5 after a single digit loss.

In the bottom five we find monster trucks and Justin Beiber, who returns after a longer than usual absence. No new tour has been announced, but he is apparently working on a new album (Believe), so a new tour will likely not be far behind.

Rounding things out Tool slip a couple spots to #9 while Radiohead appears at #10. They’ll be in the US for just over a month, so don’t wait to get your tickets.

Interesting shuffle this week, as we bid a final farewell to bowl season. The NFL postseason still figures heavily on the list, though it’s now in the bottom five. At the top we have Van Halen, whose upcoming tour has proven quite buzzworthy, thanks in no small part to the release of their first new album in fourteen years. It’s the first Van Halen album since 1984 to feature David Lee Roth on lead vocals. Fans have had quite a wait for this one, and are ready to pack stadiums to see them.

In slightly more bittersweet concert news, the #2 entry on the countdown, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, surged from #9 last week, but also announced the kick off of their tour would be delayed. Chili Peppers faithful will have to wait until late March to see the band.

Rounding out the top 5 we have the Heat hanging in at #4 and Drake, who is on tour promoting his latest album, Take Care.

Down in the bottom five we find the Texas and the Super Bowl, along with a favorite diversion for the cold winter months: Monster Jam.

9 - Red Hot Chili Peppers
10 - Coldplay

Starting off 2012 with a fresh list. A list that shows thoughts of football fans turning back to the pros as bowl season comes to a close. Not to say there’s not a little steam left in that engine. The Cotton Bowl makes a strong showing at #2 and the big rematch finds its way to #6.

The pros take the top spot, as the Texas make their debut appearance in the post season. Houston fans are lining up to see the Wildcard game against the Bengals on home turf in Reliant Stadium. Saints fans are little more accustomed to post-season play, but that doesn’t dampen their enthusiasm, pushing the team to #3 on the list. The big game itself makes it to #5, and Giants fans can be content with #7.

The NBA’s Heat check in #4 while the bottom of the countdown sees a tidy cluster of concert performers. Leading off the pack is Tool, on tour this winter with the possibility of a new album arriving this year. The Red Hot Chili Peppers return as do Coldplay, both seeing a lot of interest in their tours. It’s a little cold out there these days, so catching a concert inside a nice warm venue is a great way to keep warm.

The reign of bowls came to a quick end this week. Concert performers surged back, rounding out the top five with three hot acts. Both the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Coldplay haven’t been seen on the countdown for quite a while, though mostly because they haven’t been touring. That’s set to change in 2012, as both bands are hitting the road for tours that are shaping up to be huge sellers.

Starting off the bottom five we have the Houston Texans, who are set to head into uncharted territory: the postseason. The recently minted franchise has come out on top of the AFC South, and will be playing for their first shot a Super Bowl.

The NBA returned recently, but they didn’t make a huge splash on the countdown until this week. Last season’s champions, the Mavericks, appear at #7, followed closely by their championship rivals, the Miami Heat.

Less new stuff this week as all the top 5 hangs around, and most stay right where they were last week. The only change is Taylor Swift and Adele, who swap places. Taylor Swift’s show in Austin isn’t until October, but tickets went on sale recently, no doubt having a bit of an effect on her rankings this week. She did not manage to dethrone the esteemed Mr. Bieber. The Derby and Oaks are about a week away now, and interest remains strong. Still time to get your seats for “The most exciting 2 minutes in sports.”

The Heat’s entry into Round Two of the NBA playoffs pits them against the 2008 champs and 2010 runners-up Boston Celtics in what promises to be a very big series. They hang steady at #6 this week, but may surge as the games get underway next week.

Maná enters the countdown at #7. The Grammy Award winning Latin rock group has been around since 1978, releasing 8 studio albums so far. The most recent of them is Drama y Luz, their first album in over 5 years. With fans having such a long wait between albums, no wonder Maná is moving up the chart.

Rounding things out we have the Davis Cup returning, along with Katy Perry, both of whom will likely be around quite a bit as summer nears.
