Top Events Week 3, 2013
1. One Direction
One Direction is still number one but their grip finally appears to be slipping. 1D is still insanely popular but the gap is cetainly narrowing.
2. Super Bowl XLVII
Not much of a surprise here as the most watched sporting event in the world comes in at #2 this week. Super Bowl 47 will feature the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. Expect demand to be huge for this event during the next 2 weeks. Also hot are all the Super Bowl Parties including the Leather and Laces, DirecTv and Playboy VIP Events.
3. Taylor Swift
4. Bob Seger
Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band will be back out on tour in 2013 on their Rock and Roll Never Forgets Tour. This has been one of the bigger concert announcements of 2013 and should continue to do well throughout the duration of the tour.
5. Houston Rodeo
The Houston Rodeo falls 1 spot this week but it really isn’t due to any loss of popularity but rather a surge in activity for the Super Bowl. With the Rodeo only a month away, expect sales to continue to be strong. For the full HLSR lineup and details check out our previous blog post: 2013 Houston Rodeo Schedule and Lineup!
6. Chicago Cubs
Fresh off the 2013 Chicago Cubs Convention fans are already starting to think baseball. Although the Cubs aren’t expected to compete for the NL Central this year they do have an exciting core of young players (Starlin Castro, Anthony Rizzo, and Jeff Samardzija) who should be fun to watch. Regardless of how they fare in 2013 fans will still flock to Wrigley Field.
7. San Antonio Rodeo
The San Antonio Rodeo and Livestock Show moves up one place this week to settle in at #7. This event should continue sell well given the incredible lineup. You can see the entire lineup here.
