The Bowl of all Bowls remains at the top this week, and the sky remains blue, grass green. The Pro Bowl moved up the list, but couldn’t quite make it to the number 2 spot. That got taken by chart newcomer Lil Wayne, who has very recently announced the “I Am Music II” Tour. So recently, in fact, that there’s no inventory available for any of the shows as of yet. That will likely change pretty quickly. It appears he has a very busy schedule for the spring tour.

Rush fans return the prog-rock trio to the number four spot this week. They’re followed by Janet Jackson, who slips a bit from 3 to 5.

Starting off the bottom five is the Coachella Music Festival. This year’s festival is headlined by Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and the ever humble, man of the people Kanye West. The festival happens April 15-17, in the middle of the Empire Polo Fields, which are over this hedge.

Rounding out the list Jason Aldean, Monster Jam, and Dayglow (an eclectic mix if I ever saw one) shuffle around a bit. Gaga shows up again at #10 as her new round of stateside dates draws ever closer.

Many changes this week as we finally cast off the last remnants of college bowl season and see a couple new faces in concerts. Naturally the Super Bowl remains at #1. The tantalizing prospects of some pretty interesting matchups are fueling some higher interest here than usual. Nothing is set in stone yet, but we will know this weekend. While on the subject of football, the Pro Bowl worked its way in near the bottom of the list.

Taylor Swift graciously gave the Pro Bowl her #9 spot, trading it for #2 this week. She’s followed by list newcomer Janet Jackson. Miss Jackson isn’t a newcomer to the music scene, though. The 2011 tour she’s gearing up for, Number Ones: Up Close and Personal, is based on her visiting 35 cities to sing her 35 #1 hits. That is a reasonably large number of #1 hits.

Janet is followed by the second newcomer to the list, “Dayglow.” The Dayglow Tour, billed as the “World’s Largest Paint Party”, is where people younger and more attractive than myself go to dance and squirt one-another with neon black-light paint. If you get the VIP package, you get a free bottle of paint… so, yeah, there’s that, too.

The rest of the list is mostly just some of the usual suspects popping back in for a visit. Jason Aldean, Kid Rock, some dude named Bieber, all dropping by for a little extra face time.

2010 Pro Bowl to be played in Dolphin Stadium

The Pro Bowl will not only change location but also scheduling. This is the first time since 1979 that the NFL’s All-Star game will not be played in Honolulu. Moving to Dolphins Stadium, it will also be played a week before the Super Bowl rather than the week after. Not since 1967 in LA has a Pro Bowl and Super Bowl been played in the same city. The league hopes that by making these changes, the game will grow more popular among fans. Future consideration for the game includes rotating years between playing in Hawaii and on the mainland. The Pro Bowl is scheduled for 1/31/10 at 9pm CST.

Don’t wait until 2010 for NFL action in person! Catch the NFL Playoffs, Super Bowl and Pro Bowl this year.
