For those who came of age in the early 2000s, the Kansas City Royals were a bit of a punch line. But that’s no longer the case.

KC has taken the MLB marketplace by storm this season, with at least one game in the Market Heat Report every day this month. Today, their home game against the St. Louis Cardinals last night came in at the No. 2 spot. The real impressive stat, however, is that last week’s series between Kansas City and the Seattle Mariners at Kauffman Stadium- just three games out of a total 98 played that week- accounted for over 21% of all MLB sales on TicketNetwork. Kansas City is currently second place in the American League Central, four games behind first place Cleveland. The 2015 World Series champions have clearly sparked a renaissance of fan interest, making Kauffman Stadium one of the top destinations in the league, with sales figures on the secondary market that reflect this fact.

Not so surprising is that the Mayweather Jr. vs. McGregor fight held on to the No. 1 spot today, and that the Dallas Cowboys made four appearances, with two home games versus Green Bay Packers and New York Jets and two away at Atlanta and Denver.

We can also expect pop sensation Lady Gaga to continue to see spots on the Top 20 as she embarks on her highly anticipated Joanne World Tour, which started August 1 in Canada and will see one full round of U.S. dates before heading over to South America, Europe, and back to the U.S. for another stretch that will wrap up in California in December. Tonight’s show in Inglewood and Friday’s in Vegas took Nos. 12 and 14 today.

Last night’s Guns N’ Roses concert took No. 4, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers in September is No. 5, and two Hello, Dolly! performances made the cut at Nos. 11 & 20.
