The event ticket marketplace has been particularly sporty as of late- with baseball wrapping up, football getting in gear, and basketball on the horizon. The NFL still saw a remarkable number of spots today, but for the first time in a long time, music events are the star of the show.

Last night’s U2 and Beck concert in Glendale, Arizona occupied the No. 1 spot today, and the duo show up again at No. 19 for their show Friday night in San Diego. No. 2 went to the Linkin Park & Friends tribute concert for their late band member, Chester Bennington, which was announced Monday and takes place next month.

Grammy-winning pop singer Bruno Mars stole spots no. 6, 7 & 9 for upcoming shows in Dallas and Lexington and last night’s in Louisville. The annual Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, scheduled for this Saturday, came in at No. 15. Headliners this year include The Lumineers, The Killers, Green Day, and Stevie Wonder. Following that were Janet Jackson in Brooklyn, NY and Dead & Company in Sunrise, FL later this year.

In sports, Kansas City Chiefs sales are still doing well, with home games at Nos. 4, 5 & 13. No. 3 on today’s chart is next Monday’s matchup between the Arizona Cardinals and the Dallas Cowboys. This weekend are Kentucky Wildcats vs. Florida Gators in college ball, and Redskins vs. Raiders and Lions vs. Falcons.
