TicketNews has released its exclusive, weekly top events rankings for the week of July 7, and once again, the Jonas Brothers prove their value on the ticket market, taking the title of Top Concert Event and coming in close behind Wicked on the Top Events chart.

For the fourth week in a row, Wicked holds steadfast to its number one position in the Top Combined Events rankings, with an impressive power score of 5. Jonas Brothers follow with a 4.33 power score, bumping the New York Yankees from their previous number two position to number three. Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs tickets take the number four and five spot, respectively, pushing Jersey Boys, Madonna, and Coldplay down towards the lower end of the rankings.

The Jonas Brothers show an immense lead in the Top Concert Events rankings, with a power score of 8.83. Madonna moves up a spot from her previous number three ranking to follow with a 4.41 power score. At number three, Coldplay followed with a power score is 4.22. And from seemingly nowhere, The Eagles soar into the number four spot, with a power score of 3.11, moving ahead of Kenny Chesney and Dave Matthews Band.

The New York Yankees – Boston Red Sox – Chicago Cubs sports ticket trifecta holds the respective one, two, and three spots in the Top Sports Events rankings for the third week in a row. With an 11.05 power score, the Yankees prove a strong number one. New York Mets tickets appear on the charts this week, at number five, behind the 2008 MLB All Star Game, as do tickets for the 2008 Olympics opening ceremony (in at number eight).

Amazingly, in the Top Theater Events rankings, the numbers 1-6 spots haven’t changed from the previous rankings: Wicked at number one (power score: 35.49), followed by Jersey Boys (15.89), South Pacific (9.80), Lion King (8.11), Mamma Mia! (3.12), and Phantom of the Opera (2.73). Elton John: The Red Piano moves to the number seven position from the previous week’s number nine.

On Broadway, South Pacific takes the number two spot on the Top Broadway Events rankings from Jersey Boys, now at number three. The Phantom of the Opera leaps from number ten to number six and the Little Mermaid sinks to number ten. In The Heights appears on the charts at number nine after a one-week hiatus.

Last but not least, Bette Midler dominates the Vegas Events rankings with a 36.90 power score, but watch out Ms. Midler, Cher follows closely with a 35.66 power score. Cirque du Soleil: “O” is a distant number three with a 4.05 power score. Donny and Marie Osmond appear at number five, behind Elton John and ahead of Blue Man Group.

TicketNews Exclusive Rankings and Power Scores are based on ticket sales from the TicketNetwork Exchange™, the world’s largest secondary market exchange. A Power Score illustrates a given event’s category-specific significance. Two factors are used to calculate a power score: total ticket sales from the given event and total ticket sales within the category. As such, power scores should only be used to compare events within a particular category.
