The Week in TicketCity Search – May 22nd

Exciting changes this week, as 2 bands come out of nowhere to secure the top 2 spots. I checked my watch and it doesn’t appear to be the 90’s, yet Tool and Blink-182 are at the top of the search list.

Tool has been on hiatus for around a year now, and only recently announced a new tour. Tool fans responded, pushing them to the top of the list. Tickets are available for 2 dates as of this writing, and certainly more to come. They will also be heading to this year’s Lollapalooza and are working a new album.

Blink-182 wasn’t just on hiatus, they haven’t existed for the past four years or so. The reformation of the band was announced at the 51st Grammy awards. Tour dates currently start in July and go through October, though more could be added. Like Tool, the band is also working on a new album, though it may not be out until next year.

Taylor Swift returns as George Strait falls off again, while American Idol and Green Day round out the top 5. The bottom 5 is a bit more familiar, with Metallica hanging in there for another week. While they haven’t been atop the list recently, they’ve had staying power. Phish and U2 both return to the list after brief absences.

To the American audience, have a good Memorial Day weekend.
