In just one week Bruce Springsteen has jumped from number 20 to number 3 on TicketNews’ Events Rankings list.

This comes as no surprise since July 27 marked the annnouncement of 16 additional stops on his Wrecking Ball tour extending it through December 6 when the tour will culminate at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona. Sold out shows and high ticket demand led Springteen and the E Street Band to more than double their original international itinerary consisting of 14 shows. Bruce and the E Street Band are currently enjoying a two week break after which the tour will pick-up on August 14 with a show at Fenway Park in Boston.

The monumental and aptly named Gigant3s tour, featuring three of the biggest names in latin music — Marc Anthony, Marco Antonio Solis and Chayanne — makes its first appearance on our list this week following two sold-out shows that kicked off the tour at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida. The tour was kicked off with the release of Solis’ new album “Una Noche De Luna.” Shows consist of the three superstars performing their own sets, culminating with the three coming together to perform each others hits. Next up, the tour is headed to the Izod Center in New Jersey this Friday, August 10 followed by a stop at Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut on Saturday, August 11.

Jerry Seinfeld just snuck onto our top events list into the number 20 spot as fans are preparing for the “5 Borough Tour” portion of his 2012 tour with stops all across North America. For this portion of the tour he will be joined by Brooklyn-born comedian Colin Quinn as they make stops in the 5 boroughs of New York — beginning October 4 at the Beacon Theater in Manhattan and concluding November 8 at the Walt Whitman Theater in Brooklyn. As tickets have sold out for all five New York stops, demand is sure to be high on the secondary market.

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.
