|8||-||A Perfect Circle|
It’s summer concert season and we’ve got a full list of concert performers for you this week. Nary a sporting event in sight. Have a month or so before college football heats up and (maybe) the NFL. Shooting right to the top is Adele, who climbed the chart reliably the past few weeks and has ended up on top. Her restarted tour is back, and tickets for her show at the Frank Erwin Center went on sale today. She takes some of the wind out of the esteemed Mr. Bieber’s sails in reaching the top, moving him down to #2, followed by Taylor Swift, who also had a really good week.
Jason Aldean and Katy Perry round out the top five, a big move up for the country star. Katy’s summer tour continues going strong, despite slipping a bit in the countdown this week. She makes for a good pop pair with Selena Gomez, who holds onto the #6 spot this week. ACL took a bit of a tumble to end this week at #7, where it makes way for our new and returning entries.
Debuting this week is A Perfect Circle. The recently reformed band has been touring on and off since 2010, though there are no plans to release a full album of new material, rather a few new songs. Finally, U2 and Sade end up the week in the #9 and #10 spots, both having been seen on the countdown on and off for months now. U2′s 360° Tour, which has been running since 2009 (with a break), finally comes to an end this week, so this will be your last chance to catch this unique concert event.
