The Week in TicketCity Search – March 5th

Things nearly return to normal in the top 5 as the Vancouver Games are behind us. Though it seems some folks are already setting their sights a couple years into the future and investigating what our friends in England will be doing in 2012 in London. Taylor Swift returns to a familiar position, top of the countdown, followed by newcomer and sudden-very-hot-ticket Phoenix.

Phoenix is a French alternative rock band who’ve been touring on their most recent album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which received a 2009 Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. I realize our page for them is “Phoenix The Band”, but that’s because Phoenix “The City in Arizona” was around before they were a garage band in suburban Paris in 1995, and, more importantly, before they became famous.

The esteemed Mr. Bieber returns to #3, while John Mayer climbs to number #4. The bottom five shows signs of what’s to come, as 2 conference championships appear, the Big East and the SEC. Certainly they may post bigger showings next week, before some form of March Madness / Final Four terms take over. It is is March, after all. Calibash heads up a couple notches, while the Dave Matthews Band peaks in at 7 and the WWE and the upcoming Wrestlemania hold steady at 8 this week.

Xiang vs. Robles, Beijing 2008

A rivalry is heating up prior to Beijing this summer, the destination for Olympians worldwide.  China’s track and field prodigy Liu Xiang, 24, is hoping to make up some ground in the 110-metre hurdles after his 2006 world record was toppled by Cuba’s Dayron Robles on June 12.  Robles, 21, edged past Xiang’s time of 12.88 seconds with a time of 12.87, setting the new world record for the event in Ostrava, Czech Republic. 


“It’s such a good time; I wasn’t expecting that. Wow! I do not know if I can beat Liu Xiang in Beijing now. But we will see,” said Robles, a little winded and astounded at his own feat.


And we will see.


Robles, who is slightly younger than Xiang, must prove his recent wins in Germany and the Czech Republic in August.  Xiang, who is heralded as the contender to beat in this year’s event, will have a home court advantage.


Only the best competitor of the two will walk away with hurdles gold at the Beijing National Stadium.  Luckily, we have your track and field tickets right here at TicketCity.  You can witness both superstars vying for worldwide recognition, as the 110-metre hurdles gears up August 18.  As you and I both know, there is little doubt both contenders will be fighting it out late, so grab some tix to the finals on August 21.
