TicketNews has released its exclusive events rankings for the week of July 13, and the New York Yankees make a strong showing, taking the number one spot in the Top Combined Events and Top Sports Events rankings.

With a 5.58 power score, the Yankees knocked Wicked out of first place, a position the musical previously held for four consecutive weeks. The Eagles soar in at number three, behind Wicked, with a 3.21 power score. The Jonas Brothers fall from their previous number two position to number five, behind the Boston Red Sox.

In the Top Concert events rankings, The Eagles wield a hefty 7.21 power score and move up from number four to number one. Coldplay stays at number three and Madonna slips from number two to number five. Kenny Chesney tickets continue to sell well and consistently; he’s ranked at number four and has a 3.01 power score.

In the sports rankings, the Yankees have a huge number one lead with a 14.34 power score. Boston Red Sox tickets are the number two top-selling sports tickets with a power score is 7.00 followed by the Chicago Cubs at number three. New in the rankings are tickets to the Joe Calzaghe vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight, which holds the number four spot. Football tickets are among the most popular, especially tickets to the Dallas Cowboys (number five), Ohio State Buckeyes (number seven), and Pittsburgh Steelers (number eight). These tickets and WWE tickets (number six) knock the New York Mets to number nine from their previously held number five position.

In theater and on Broadway, Wicked still reigns supreme. Jersey Boys is number two in the Top Theater Events rankings and South Pacific is number three; the order is reversed in the Top Broadway Events rankings. Lion King trails behind the three shows on both charts, at number four, followed by Mamma Mia.

In Vegas, Bette Midler: The ShowGirl Must Go On still outperforms Cher, though their power scores are close (Bette Midler is at 35.20; Cher is at 33.25). Elton John: The Red Piano is at number three, followed by a trio of Cirque du Soleil shows (“O”, The Beatles: LOVE, and KÀ.)

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.
