Check back in with us next week to see if any have managed to steal the top spot.

Only just clinging onto a spot in the top 20 are Bon Iver, who have dropped seven places to come in last on the chart, while Strictly Come Dancing have gone down 13 and Korn (co-headline with Limp Bizkit) have fallen from #14 to #19.  However, it’s not all doom and gloom,  Jamie T is up seven places, David Gilmour has returned and Professor Brian Cox has joined the chart.

This week there has also been some massive news: Bros have reformed and announced a HUGE show, Coldplay will play Cardiff and Dublin shows as part of their 2017 European tour and Green Day are the first headliner to be announced for the British Summer Time series at Hyde Park. Add to that John Bishop‘s tour and the X Factor Live and you’ve got one hell of a week! Come back and see us next week to see if any of them have been able to steal the top spot.
