Beyoncé crushes the competition this week in a win by a very wide margin. She cracked four digits in this week’s total, a rare feat and one that leaves the competition in the dust… at the bottom of a canyon. The rest of the top five put in what, any other week, would have been exemplary performances, starting off with the debut of countdown newcomer Fall Out Boy.

Fall Out Boy is back from a three year break with an upcoming new album, Save Rock and Roll, and tour to promote it. The album won’t drop until April and the tour doesn’t start up until May, but after a three year wait, fans of the alt rock quartet are eager to get tickets for their return. We will see how much staying power they have over the next few weeks.

Rodeos figured out how to coexist on the countdown this week, even if there’s a bit of a gap. San Antonio gains a spot for #3, and Houston just makes it by securing the #10 spot. One could give Houston a break, as Bruno Mars’ show there seems to have driven his appearance in the #6 spot.

Pearl Jam sneaks into the bottom 5 as fans search for some seats to a single show at Wrigley Field. Those who can’t make the Wrigley Field show do have one other option, you just need to get to London. It’s not as bad as you think, though, it’s London, Ontario. There are unconfirmed plans for a far fuller concert tour in the fall of 2013, so your options may open up with a little patience.

The Week in TicketCity Search – April 22nd

TicketCity Week in Search

1 2 Justin Bieber
2 3 Adele
3 10 Kentucky Derby
4 - Kentucky Oaks
5 6 Taylor Swift
6 - Miami Heat
7 7 Mumford & Sons
8 - Texas Rangers
9 - WWE
10 - Pearl Jam

Looks like the Davis Cup didn’t have the staying power to remain on top, or even in the countdown at all. I sense it will return a time or two before July. For now, the vacated top spot is once again reclaimed by the esteemed Mr. Bieber, followed closely by Adele. Contributing to this week’s more eclectic mix of sports and concerts, the Derby and Oaks shoot back up the charts to secure the third and forth spot on the countdown.

Taylor Swift rounds out the top five, and the Miami Heat lead off the bottom five. The Heat are playing Philadelphia in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, where they’re just 1 win away from shutting down the 76ers and moving on to the second round. Take a look at our NBA Playoffs Tickets page to keep up with the match-ups, and, of course, buy some tickets to see the games in person.

Mumford & Sons hang steady at #7 this week. Following them the Rangers appear. Fresh off last year’s World Series appearance against the Giants, Rangers tickets are hot this season. After the WWE, Pearl Jam pops in at #10. Rumors of a new album and a 20th anniversary festival for the band are probably helping to fuel the interest.

The Week in TicketCity Search – May 21st

At least one thing has returned to “normal” on the countdown this week as Lady Gaga takes up residence at the top once more. Time will tell if the recent volatility in her rankings is over or if this is just another wild fluctuation. Fluctuating with her is Pearl Jam, who appear at #2 and coincidentally have a huge show at Madison Square Garden tonight. I’m pretty sure they will not be here next week.

The WWE holds steady at their peak #3 ranking, while Tool tumbled from the top down to #4, allowing the esteemed Mr. Bieber to cling to top 5 status. That brings us to #6 and the little local festival we have around here every fall. Yes, the ACL Line-up was announced, a little later than last year, which brought it to chart this week. Six is a little soft, actually, I expected it would have cracked the top 3. Come this fall, I’m sure it will be the dominating force it was last year.

Rounding out the countdown is on-again-off-again Drake, with returning favorites Michael Buble and Aventura, mixed in with none other than the Jonas Brothers. The JoBros have a summer concert tour planned that starts off in our general vicinity with shows in Dallas and San Antonio. It will be interesting to see if any real contest develops between the slightly more mature Jonas Brothers and current tween heartthrob Mr. Bieber.

1 5 Lady Gaga
2 - Pearl Jam
3 3 WWE
4 1 Tool
5 4 Justin Bieber
6 - ACL
7 - Drake
8 - Jonas Brothers
9 - Michael Buble
10 - Aventura

The Week in TicketCity Search – March 26th

Iron Maiden

I think this may qualify as the most changed top 10 ever. 60% of our entries weren’t there last week, some completely new, some old favorites whose time has come again. The top 5 returns to complete concert dominance, with the Lady at the top for a second consecutive week in a row. Despite some managerial hiccups, the esteemed Mr. Bieber remains at #2, while George Strait returns from a long absence.

Pearl Jam appeared, then vanished, and returns again at #4 along with George’s contemporary country compatriot, Taylor Swift at #5. The National Invitation Tournament (NIT) continues a pretty strong showing at #6. You guys know the actual NCAA Tournament is happening, like, right now… right? The Kentucky Derby makes its first 2010 appearance on the countdown at #7. There’s ample time to get seats for this year’s Derby and Oaks.

Jay Z appears after an absence not quite as long as George Strait’s, but a pretty big nonetheless. Our notable newcomer this week is Iron Maiden, another in a long line of venerable rock acts to put in an appearance here. The heavy metal mainstays are working on a new album entitled The Final Frontier and will hit the tour circuit this summer in support of the new album.

1 1 Lady Gaga
2 2 Justin Bieber
3 - George Strait
4 - Pearl Jam
5 5 Taylor Swift
6 4 NIT
7 - Kentucky Derby
8 - Jay Z
9 - Iron Maiden
