Well, AP has compiled its weekly update of the top-grossing concert tours of 2010, and as we slide into the second half of the year, perhaps it’s time to take stock of where we are as a concert-going public and culture. As always, there are a few old faithfuls that unsurprisingly pepper the list – constantly touring acts such as Neil Young (ranked #12 with an earning of $357,036 thus far), along with coldly opportunist baby boomer nostalgia-reapers like the Eagles (who perch at a staggering #2 with $2,001,264) and the James Taylor / Carole King double feature (sharing the #3 spot with $1,368,495). Further, a few expected new kids like Conan O’Brien (#15 with $276,692) also pop up here and there to liven things up a bit. Those aside, the list did offer a few surprises (and, of course, Bieber), especially at the #1 spot.

It’s time for the Video of the Day! This one is a pretty good one if I may say. Although we may not write about Nickelback very much, if there is a worthwhile piece we will oblige. Those who harbor negative feelings towards Nickelback may especially appreciate this one. I would like to thank the creator of this video, the Internet, and YouTube… You finally made Nickelback fun to watch.
Check out our video of the day below…

Billboard (via Reuters) recently released their end of the decade issue and after going through numerous music charts based on Neilsen Soundscan, and when it comes to the top rock acts from 2000 – 2010, two main acts stand out in regards to sales: Linkin Park and Nickelback…
We know, we know. Linkin Park is tolerable but Nickelback with their trite songwriting? We want to ask Billboard – Why? Then again, it’s not really Billboard who is choosing these artist. They are merely the messengers. The people buy the music and request DJs to spin these tunes, so it’s really the people who have picked these over-accessible songs as the top artists of the decade. Check out who else got high honors from Billboard in rock this decade…

After all the hype about an alter ego, Beyonce has come out with I Am… Sasha Fierce. If it sounds just like Beyonce, I’m going to be disappointed. I’m not too impressed with the CD releases this week. What do you all think?
