The Week in TicketCity Search – April 24

U2 holds onto #1 for a second week. The European leg of their current 360° Tour lasts through August before hitting the states in September. That would be a long time to hold onto the number 1 spot. Even if they don’t manage it, they’ll probably be a familiar face in the top 10 for a while.

Derby weekend continues to approach, and after an absence, the Derby itself is back, once again not quite able to top the Oaks. Beyoncé enters at a strong #4 touring in support of the I Am… Sasha Fierce album. Personally, I give bonus points to anything with ellipsis in the title. It’s my favorite piece of punctuation. Really… It is…

Aerosmith completes the top 5 by moving up a couple notches.

After a strong showing Metallica drops to 6, while the “JoBros” manage to hang onto the top 10 at 8, but I’m not sure how long they’ll manage to pull that off. On tour and without anyone interested in spelling her last name, Britney Spears drops by at 7, while the upcoming Buzzfest XXII in Houston rounds out the top 10.
