Last week the Giants/Dodgers rivalry topped our sports list and this week it’s the Yankees/Red Sox as all three games in the series at Fenway make the list. In fact, five Yankee away games make the list showing just how big of a road draw the men in pinstripes are. Soccer friendlies continue to be popular this summer as three more of them make the list this week including a great matchup between Manchester United and Real Madrid at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.

After four weeks straight of having Beyonce and Jay Z top our concert list, Lollapalooza finally knocks them off the number one spot. The popular Chicago festival shows up three times this week hosting big name acts like Eminem, Outkast and Kings of Leon. One Direction also makes two appearances on the list this week for their two dates at Rogers Centre in Toronto.
