3 10 Coldplay
4 4 Miami Heat
5 - Drake
6 1 Houston Texans
7 8 Tool
8 - Monster Jam
9 5 Super Bowl
10 - Dallas Mavericks

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.

The Week in TicketCity Search – January 6th

TicketCity Week in Search

Week of
Jan. 2nd
1 - Houston Texans
2 - Cotton Bowl
3 - New Orleans Saints
4 - Miami Heat
5 - Super Bowl
6 - BCS Bowl
7 - NY Giants
8 - Tool
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 Week in TicketCity Search – February 4th

TicketCity Week in Search

1 1 Super Bowl
2 - Katy Perry
3 2 Lil Wayne
4 - Chris Cornell
5 - Taylor Swift
6 10 Lady Gaga
7 5 Janet Jackson
8 7 Jason Aldean
9 - Linkin Park
10 8 Monster Jam

The Super Bowl remains on top. I think that’s the one they show when the Puppy Bowl is on Animal Planet. New to the countdown and clocking in at the #2 spot is Katy Perry. While experiencing quite a bit of success over the past year or so, she’s been absent from the countdown because she hasn’t been on tour since fall of 2009. The California Dream Tour will run this month through November, so Miss Perry may be hanging around for much of the year to make up for that lost time.

Lil Wayne drops one spot to #3 and Chis Cornell returns to the countdown at the 4 spot. The former(ish) Soundgarden lead vocalist is playing the Paramount Theatre here in Austin on April 1st. I doubt that’s going to be a joke, so go ahead and order tickets.

Countdown mainstay Taylor Swift returns to the #5, and is joined by Lady Gaga, who climbs to #6 from #10. Gaga will be in central Texas in mid-March, which is already a hot ticket, and only promises to become a bit more toasty as the shows draw closer.

The remainder of the countdown is some shuffling, with Janet Jackson, Jason Aldean, and Monster Jam all giving up positions, and Linkin Park returning after a very brief absence. Linkin Park’s run through Texas is a lot closer, with dates in Houston and Dallas in mid February.

The Week in TicketCity Search – January 28th

TicketCity Week in Search

1 1 Super Bowl
2 - Lil Wayne
3 9 Pro Bowl
4 - Rush
5 3 Janet Jackson
6 - Coachella
7 5 Jason Aldean
8 7 Monster Jam
9 4 Dayglow
10 - Lady Gaga

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.
