|5||-||US Grand Prix|
Ah, now we’re getting some variety in the countdown. With ACL done and college football season heading into the “slow” month, we see some new (relatively) faces appearing. At the top, though, is the very familiar countenance of the esteemed Mr. Bieber, who retakes his crown after spending many a month in exile.
He’s followed by Jason Aldean, whose tour is moving through our backyard, so I’m pretty sure that’s how he pulled an “out-of-nowhere” landing a #2. Miss St. drops to #3 and 1D holds steady at #4.
Very new and in at #5 is the United States Grand Prix. New to Austin, the inaugural racing weekend gets underway November 16th, culminating in the USGP on the 18th. The brand new Circuit of the America hosts the event, and we will have more on the track soon.
Also new, and starting off the second half of the countdown, is Maroon 5, who just released the North American dates for their Overexposed Tour. Along for the ride are Neon Trees and Owl City. The tour begins next February and currently runs for around 32 dates, though that could be extended.
The World Series enters at #7, and Phish return at #8. George Strait suffers a big drop, 8 spots down to the very bottom this week.
While I’m pretty sure it’s the first time they’ve been on the countdown, it’s certainly not the first time the Rolling Stones have been on the road. Debuting at #9 this week, they’ve been at it for 50 years. Called the 50 and Counting Tour, these dates are celebrating that golden anniversary.
