After losing his three week hold on TicketNews’ exclusive events rankings list to The Book of Mormon last week, Justin Bieber has stormed back to the No. 1 position for the week ending June 24, 2012.

Adding to the already overwhelming craze behind Justin Bieber’s sold out 2012 Believe Tour — which kicks off this September — was the release of his second full length album “Believe” which hit store shelves Tuesday, June 19. The much anticipated 13 track album contains collaborations with heavy hitters from the hip-hop world — Drake, Big Sean, Ludacris, and Nicki Minaj. The album’s second single, after “Boyfriend,” was confirmed today, June 26, by Island Def Jam to Billboard to be “As Long as You Love Me” which features the rapper Big Sean. Billboard reports that the album is on course for the biggest debut sales week of the year.

Falling three positions this week to the No. 6 spot was the Miami Heat. The Heat finished off the Oklahoma City Thunder — during a three-game homestand — in Game 5 on Thursday, June 21, giving NBA superstar and Finals MVP LeBron James his long-awaited first NBA title.

The week ending June 17 saw the band Coldplay grabbing on to the No. 20 position, and just a week later the band has surged up to No. 12. Coldplay is currently on a 37-date North American tour that is scheduled to run through early August. The band is promoting their album “Mylo Xyloto” which was released on October 24, 2011. The album has produced the singles “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall,” “Paradise,” and “Princess of China.” An acoustic version of “Princess of China” which features R&B signer Rihanna was released on iTunes yesterday, June 25.

Tagging along for portions of the North American tour are Metronomy, The Pierces, Robyn, Wolf Gang, Marina and the Diamonds, and Emeli Sande. This week Coldplay will be performing in Houston, TX (June 26); Tampa, FL (June 28); and Miami,FL (June 29). In July, Coldplay will be making two-night stays in Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center; Washington, D.C.’s Verizon Center; and TD Garden in Boston, MA, among other performances.

TicketNews Exclusive Rankings and Power Scores are based on ticket sales from the TicketNetwork Exchange™. Two factors are used to calculate a power score: total ticket sales from the given event and total ticket sales within the category. Since the sum of all events’ power scores equals 100 in any given category, an individual event’s Power Score represents its category-specific significance. Top Event Power Scores should only be used to compare events within a particular category, and not across categories.
