Bon Jovi Highest Grossing

Bon Jovi Highest Grossing - While the concert business took a hit in 2010 (ticket sales dropped an estimated 12 percent from last year), some artists totally rocked it out on the road.
The Los Angeles Times reported the figures from Pollstar about which acts made the biggest impact touring this year, and it's a veritable mix of tried-and-true legends with hot up-and-comers.

Bragging rights for the highest-grossing concert tour of 2010 goes to none other than Bon Jovi, whose globe-spanning live shows helped them haul in more than $200 million ($108.2 million of which came from touring the U.S. alone)! Following close behind Bon Jovi were fellow 80's icons AC/DC at $177 million.

Bono's back problems didn't hinder U2 from having a hot year, as they came in third grossing $160.9 million. The unstoppable Lady Gaga finished #4 with $133.6 million in sales and hard rockers Metallica rounded out the top 5 after raking in more than $110 million.

Those weren't the only impressive numbers to come back from Pollstar regarding 2010's biggest tours though. Fans of the Dave Matthews Band made sure to catch the group jam out before taking a hiatus in 2011, as they sold 1.27 million tickets in North America (helping them bring in $72.9 million).

After DMB and Bon Jovi came pop sensation Justin Bieber, who sold roughly 987,000 tickets to screaming teens in the U.S. Meanwhile, John Mayer moved 894,000 tickets (with a final estimation of $49.9 million in sales) and 880,000 fans came out to see Brad Paisley.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
