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.

Finding the Right Seat for the US Grand Prix

For the first time in five years, the US will be hosting a Formula One race. Austin, Texas lays home to the first purpose-built F1 track, which will host the US Grand Prix practice sessions, qualifying session, and race November 16th-18th. For many, this championship event is like none seen before. Understanding the tracks, turns, and seating options can be overwhelming and TicketCity is here to help! We have the inside track to everything you need to know about this weekend.

2 1 Justin Bieber
3 - College World Series

Stunning reversal in the battle for tween pop supremacy. Beliebers are retreating on all fronts under a reinvigorated push by the five boy British Invasion that is One Direction. Results were close once more this week, but when the dust cleared, One Direction returned to the top. I figured with the sound victory last week, the esteemed Mr. Bieber would be on top for the foreseeable future.

Then again, I reason I’m not the best person to forecast trends in tween pop.

One of two championships on the countdown this week, the College World Series, enters the countdown at #3. Game 1 starts today at the shiny, almost new TD Ameritrade Park. This is year two at this park, after Rosenblatt Stadium passed the torch. Winner of the past 2 CWS, South Carolina, is once again in the running this year. The Stony Brook Seawolves are playing the Cinderella card this year, having defeated powerhouse LSU in the regionals to advance to the CWS, a first for an America East Conference team.

The NBA Finals settle into the center of the countdown. The Heat have a slight edge here, but only just tied up the series. This is the Heat’s second trip to the Finals with LeBron, where they’ve been defeated once. There’s at least three more games to go before LeBron will know if he’s got something fill that empty spot on his mantle place.

The US Grand Prix makes its inaugural appearance on the countdown. The latest, greatest incarnation of this F1 racing event will be in our backyard, at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin. The Formula One Expo is going on in Austin this weekend, where TicketCity will have some folks who can answer your questions in person. Or you can look at the really cool cars, either way. The Expo will certainly wet your appetite for the race, which isn’t until November, ample time to get your tickets to this bit of racing history.
