T-minus 9 days until One Direction lands on U.S. soil to play the first of their sold out concerts. First up is Sunrise Florida and the BB&T Center on 6/13/2013.
2. Taylor Swift
T-Swift came up a bit short in her bid to unseat the reigning champion One Direction. Tayor Swift will be out in Canada for the next couple of weeks before heading back to the state to resume her Red Tour.
3. Hunter Hayes

4. Jake Bugg
Another youngster to make the Tickifieds Top 10 – Jake Bugg. The 19 year old often compared to Bob Dylan has already had a pretty remarkable career in his native England, is just now getting regular airplay in the US. Jake Bugg is certainly someone to watch! Hot shows include 9/17 in New York, 9/21 in Chicago and 9/18 in Boston.
5. Michael Buble
We had thought the surge on interest in Michael Buble concerts had came and passed. However, this week Mr. Buble came in at a respectable #5. Hot concerts right now include Buffalo NY 9/24, Philadelphia 9/21 and Los Angeles 9/29.
6. Dave Matthews Band
With most schools just about out for summer, many youngsters are looking to snag summer concert tickets. Nothings says summer concerts quite like DMB. Popular upcoming shows include 7/12 at Riverbend, 7/23 at the Wharf and 7/5 at Alpine Valley.
7. The Lumineers
The Lumineers recently announced their 2013 Fall Tour with Nathaniel Rateliff & Dr. Dog. The tour will kick off at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on 9/14 and will extend through October. Other popular shows include 10/4 in St. Louis and 9/22 in Portland.
8. Chicago Blackhawks
The Blackhawks pulled off a stunning comeback against the Detroit Red Wings to advance to the NHL Eastern Conference Finals against the LA Kings. The Hawks are up 2-0 in the series and are just 2 wins from getting back to the Stanley Cup finals.
9. Mindless Behavior
Mindless Behavior is the latest in the seemingly long line of boy bands to make a splash on the Tickifieds Top 10. Mindless Behavior will kick off their summer tour on 7/3 with a show at the Bob Hope Theater in Stockton CA. Other popular shows include 7/9 in KC, 7/14 in Greensboro and 7/25 in Baltimore.
10. Miami Heat
The Miami Heat squeaked out a series win over the Indiana Pacers and will face the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals. Despite the fact that Heat look really vulnerable with the Big 3 reverting back to the Big 1, demand for Heat tickets are strong. Probably because this may be about it for the current Heat bunch.
