The Week in TicketCity Search – August 28th
Finally, a little variety in the Top 10. While 2 of the top 3 are unchanged, it took the Broadway powerhouse that is Wicked to give the Jonas Brothers a break from the number one spot. Taylor Swift hung on at number 2, while the boy band came to rest at number 3.
Also been a few weeks since we’ve had a bona fide newcomer to the countdown. Kings of Leon appears at number 7. Formed in Nashville, Tennessee, this is a band that, to date, has enjoyed more success in the UK, where they’ve had 9 Top 40 hits. They are slowly gaining ground in their native land, and touring North America with their recent album Only by the Night, featuring the subtly titled hit, “Sex on Fire.”
Art thou keen for some football? Apparently so, as Alabama, Texas, and the Dallas Cowboys all make appearances in this week’s countdown. Alabama isn’t that surprising, as they are in 4 of the Top 25 College Football Games this week, and Texas is in 3. Dallas is in exactly 2 of the hottest NFL games, including the #2 game against the Giants at the Jones Mahal, behind the top Steelers/Bears matchup.
