Ticket industry experts are anticipating record ticket sales as several big acts will begin selling tickets this upcoming weekend. Expected to dominate ticket sales this weekend is none other than pop sensation Justin Bieber. As previously reported, the Biebs announced his 2012-2013 Believe Tour on the Ellen Degeneres show on May 23rd. Presale tickets went on sale last weekend for his tour which will consist of 41 shows across the United States and Canada. The tour will kickoff with a concert at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale Arizona on September 29th and will end with a show at the American Airlines Arean in Miami Florida on January 26th, 2013. Tickets to his shows in Canada will go on sale to the public tomorrow June 1st with the remaining US tour dates going public on Saturday June 2nd. We expect each of the 41 concert stops to sell out quickly. This means that many fans who were unable to acquire tickets through Ticketmaster will be looking to the secondary ticket market to purchase tickets. Indicative of this is the fact that Tickifieds.com already has over 186 ads for Justin Bieber including the highly coveted VIP Meet and Greet passes.
Also going on sale this weekend are tickets to the highly anticipated Peter Gabriel tour. Mr. Gabriel’s Back To Front Tour will be limited to 13 cities and will begin with a show in Qubec at the Colisee Pepsi on September 16th and will conclude at the Santa Barbara Bowl on October 9th.
Other ticket sales expect to draw interest this weekend include the Carolina Panthers (2012/2013 Season), the Z107.9 Summer Jam, WWE (events in San Diego, Indianapolis, Dallas, and Pikeville), Monster Jam (Baltimore), and Real Madrid Vs. Celtic FC in Philadelphia. On Monday tickets to Seattle Sounders Fc Vs. Chelsea also goes on sale.
