This edition of our top 10 events on Tickifieds.com is much the same as previous weeks. One Direction is still king with both Taylor Swift and Disney on Ice trailing considerably. However, a new challenger has emerged, the Jingle Ball and Jingle Jam events. If your haven’t started promoting these “Jingle shows” now is the time to start!
Perhaps most noticeable, is the lack of football from the chart this week. While we still get considerable traffic for both NFL and college football, only 1 NCAA football team made the list this week – the Clemson Tigers. Several NFL teams essentially tied for 10th place but that is a far cry from previous weeks which were dominated by football. This isn’t necessarily a reflection of the relative demand for football tickets but likely a statement about the virality(yes we did make up that word) of concert tickets. Demand for football tickets is rather constant with the notable exception of when playoff and bowl game matchups are announced.
So let’s take a peak at what events are currently trending at Tickifieds…
Top 10 Weekly Event Ticket Searches (11/6 – 11/14/2012)
1. One Direction
One Direction mania continues for yet another week. While a few top acts are gaining some ground on 1D, things really aren’t all that close as Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson still have all the tweener girls swooning. In case you needed any further proof check out Tickifieds list of most popular events.
2. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift stays strong again this week as her tickets are scheduled to go on sale to the public on Friday. Expect Ms. Swift to be a mainstay on this list for weeks and months to come. The most popular shows appear to be 5/8/2013 in Columbus, 7/6/2013 in Pittsburgh, and 8/10/2013 in Chicago.
3. Jingle Ball / Jingle Jam
With lineups of the various Jingle Balls and Jingle Jams slowly being revealed, it’s no wonder the Jingle shows are trending. It also helps that tops acts like Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and One Direction will be playing a few of them. Perhaps the most popular is the KIIS FM Jingle Ball which will take place over 2 days.
4. Disney On Ice
Disney on Ice (DOI) has a ton of shows throughout the holiday season across the nation. Rather than list an enormous list of DOI shows, we suggest you search Disney on Ice in our Concert and Event categories.
5. Bruce Springsteen

7. Clemson Tigers Football
Fans in Clemson South Carolina are excited about the prospect of being in a BCS Bowl game. The Clemson Tigers are a solid bet to represent the ACC in one of the feature bowl games in 2013..perhaps the Sugar Bowl?
