The Week in TicketCity Search – October 21st

TicketCity Week in Search

Week of
Oct. 17th
1 2 Texas Rangers
2 - World Series
3 1 Texas Longhorns Football
4 4 Justin Bieber
5 5 Taylor Swift
6 3 Dallas Cowboys
7 - WWE
8 7 Mississippi State Football
9 - Breeders Cup
10 - BCS Bowl

The top 2 earned their spots by a wide margin this week. After a comeback win the Rangers tie things up in the World Series, earning a game 5 in Arlington. They managed to push the Longhorns out of the top spot. The shuffle at the top didn’t effect the rest of the top 5, as the esteemed Mr. Bieber and Taylor Swift stayed put at #4 and #5.

The Cowboys kick off the bottom five, followed closely by the WWE. Monday Night RAW will be broadcast from the Erwin Center next… Monday, yes, it’s definitely Monday.

Mississippi State managed to hang onto the countdown that lost a lot of other teams this week. The Breeders Cup slides into the #9 spot. The 2 day event happens at Churchill Downs this year, so you can get a little taste of horse racing action in Louisville without feeling self conscious about your choice of headgear.

Finally, the National Championship Game peaks in at #10. Certainly no stranger to the countdown, but usually a little further along in the calendar. Interesting to see it pop up in October.

Week of
Oct. 10th
1 1 Texas Longhorns Football
2 10 Texas Rangers
3 3 Dallas Cowboys
4 6 Justin Bieber
5 3 Taylor Swift
6 2 Georgia Tech Football
7 8 Mississippi State Football
8 7 LSU Football
9 - Detroit Tigers
10 - Baylor Football

This week’s top 10 list is very similar to last week. The Longhorns come out on top once more, possibly with a bit of the residual TX-OU boost from last weekend. In part 2 of a very Texas top 3, we find the Rangers. They jumped up from #10 for reasons that should be clear. Their NLCS run against the Tigers will be over this weekend, one way or another. At #3 the Cowboys hang in there for another week.

Look who is climbing back up the charts to #4 this week: the esteemed Mr. Bieber. Can’t keep a pop star down, it would seem. Following close on his heels is Taylor Swift, who lost a couple spots this week, falling to #5 after peaking last week at #3.

The bottom five finds some of our recent and usual college football suspects. The Yellow Jackets, Bulldogs, and Tigers have been bouncing around the countdown for weeks now. They’re joined this week by Baylor, who squeeze into the #10 spot, just behind the other Tigers on the list, those from the Detroit.

Week of
Oct. 3rd
1 3 Texas Longhorns Football
2 - Georgia Tech Football
3 2 Taylor Swift
4 6 Adele
5 1 Dallas Cowboys
6 8 Justin Bieber
7 - LSU Football
8 5 Mississippi State Football
9 - Texas Tech Football
10 - Texas Rangers

My prediction about Taylor Swift’s chart success hit a snag. A “small” one: Texas-OU Weekend. The Red River (totally not a) Shootout goes down at the Cotton Bowl tomorrow. TicketCity will have a team up in Dallas for any exceedingly cautious fans who made the decision to go at the very last of minutes.

Dedicated football and Taylor Swift fans can have quite the day in the greater Dallas metro area, as her big concert at Dallas Cowboys Stadium is also Saturday evening.

Rounding out the top 5 are the Cowboys, who drop from the top spot last week.

The bottom five finds a few more college football teams, some of them making their first appearance on the countdown this season.

Way down at the bottom we find the Texas Rangers, who just clenched an appearance in the ALCS. The Rangers made it all the way to the World Series last year, but lost to the SF Giants. I’m sure they plan to change that this year.

Week of
Sept 26th
1 6 Dallas Cowboys
2 - Taylor Swift
3 5 Texas Longhorns Football
4 - Virginia Tech Football
5 4 Mississippi State Football
6 9 Adele
7 10 Alabama Football
8 8 Justin Bieber
9 - Oklahoma State Football
10 - Clemson Football

I see by the clock on the wall it is still football season, and the countdown reflects that quite clearly. Back to the top this week are The Boys, who meet the (and this sounds odd) undefeated Detroit Lions this Sunday in a home game up in Arlington. That game is going to be a lot more interesting than it was a few months ago.

After slipping off the countdown last week, Taylor Swift roars back to the #2 spot, an impressive achievement in a football heavy environment. She has something in common with the Dallas Cowboys, too. While they are away, she’ll be borrowing their stadium for a huge show on October 8th.

Lots more college football on the list this week. The also undefeated Longhorns hit the #3 spot, followed by Virginia Tech, who returns strong after a brief absence. Mississippi State rounds out the top five, having lost a spot since last week.

Adele stages a bit of comeback to kick off the bottom five, where we find some more of the usual suspects, as well as a couple more teams that haven’t been on the countdown quite so regularly: Oklahoma State and Clemson. Miss Swift will probably make a strong bid for #1 in the new couple weeks, we’ll see if she makes it.

The Week in TicketCity Search – September 23rd

Week of
Sept 19th
1 1 ACL Fest
2 2 Texas A&M Football
3 - Journey
4 3 Mississippi State Football
5 4 Texas Longhorns Football
6 6 Dallas Cowboys
7 - Georgia Tech Football
8 10 Justin Bieber
9 - Adele
10 8 Alabama Football

ACL hangs onto the top of the list this week, on the strength of last weekend alone. The festival will likely pass out of the countdown next week. Lots of the TicketCity crew attended with rave reviews all around. I have it on good authority there were more than a few members of the team at the #3 event on the countdown this week as well.

Journey’s show last night at the Frank Erwin Center likely caused their surge to the top three this week. Fear not if you missed them, they’ll be hanging around Texas this weekend, playing shows in Dallas and Woodlands.

College football remains the biggest force on the countdown once more this week, though concert performers are creeping back to the top as the fever pitch of the early season dies down a bit. The Cowboys likewise remain steady at #6.

Taylor Swift couldn’t hold on this week, leaving the countdown for the first time in quite a while. She gives up her seat to previous countdown stalwart, Adele, who returns in that #9 spot.
