1D, NFL Playoffs and Rodeo Rocking in the New Year – Tickifieds Top 10

Houston-Rodeo-2013Despite the fact that this is one of the slowest times of the year for ticket sales, Tickifieds is pleased to report record levels of traffic over the past 7 days.  Although, traffic is not quite where it was prior to Google’s infamous “Penguin” update, we are getting really really close to being able to call it a full recovery.  Although One Direction is responsible for a good chunk of traffic, we saw some major gains made by other events.  Most notable of the bunch are the rodeo events (the Houston, San Antonio, and Austin Rodeos) and the NFL Playoffs (AFC and NFC Championship Games).

Even more encouraging is the diversity and depth of keywords that are bringing traffic to our event ticket classifieds.  Many events big and small listed at Tickifieds are again appearing on the first page of the search results within minutes or being listed.  So stay tuned as the Tickifieds Top 10 is about to get even more competitve….watch our One Direction!

2. AFC Championship Game

Despite the fact the teams involved were just finalized last night, the 2013 AFC Championship Game catapulted all the way to #2 this week.  This years AFC Championship will feature two of the most popular east coast teams – The New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens.

3. Taylor Swift

After several weeks seemingly cemented in at #2, Taylor Swift slipped one spot to #3 this week.  Tay -Tay fans fear not though as the NFL playoff are only temporary.

Top Events Week 4, 2012

jason-aldean-2012-Tour TicketsIt’s Monday and that means it’s time to take a look at what is happening this week in the world of sports, music and theater.  Our top event this week is none other than country music superstar Jason Aldean.  Jason Aldean’s 2012 My Kinda Party tour is making some major waves in the ticket resale market.  Joining Aldean on tour will be Luke Bryan and former American idol contestant Lauren Alaina.  Jason Aldean’s show at the Amway Center in Orlando came in at #4 this week and his show in Fayetteville Arkansas just missed the list at #11.

Also, making a strong showing this week are the NFC (#2) and AFC (#5) Championship games.  Ticket interest in the NFC Championship game is especially high as most fans expected the Green Bay Packers to be hosting the big game.  Since they lost, the 49ers will get the honors.

Here are the rest of this week’s top 10…

Top Events 2012 Week 2 (1/17/2012 to 1/23/2012)

1. Jason Aldean Concert 1/20/2012  Bi-Lo Center, Greenville SC

Mr. Aldean’s 2012 My Kinda Party tour is a hot item in Greenville South Carolina.

2.  NFC Championship:  49ers vs Giants 1/22/2012 Candlestick Park, San Francisco, CA

With the upset of the Green Bay Packers, the 49ers get to host the NFC Championship game against the NY Giants.  Tickets officially go on sale on Wednesday but there are plenty of tickets already listed on the secondary market.

3.  Red Hot Chili Peppers 1/21/2012 Amway Center, Orlando, FL

The Red Hot Chili Peppers tour is one of the biggest of 2012 and their show in Orlando is no exception.  The Amway Center will be rocking come Saturday night!

4.  Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons Concert 1/19 Community Theatre Morristown, NJ

The baby boomers sure are excited about the Frankie Valli and the Four Season 3 night stand at the Community Theatre in Morristown.  With lots of shows scheduled for 2012 this might be a big time sleeper!

5.  AFC Championship:  Patriots vs Ravens 1/22/2012 Gillette Stadium, Boston, MA

The Patriots in the AFC Championship game is a bit old-hat for Bostonites.  This game would surely be higher on the list had Patriots fans not gotten complacent over the years with such successful teams.

6.  Jason Aldean Concert 1/22/2012 Amway Center, Orlando, FL

Yet another Jason Aldean show on the list….with the popularity of country music these days it’s no wonder he is dominating the concert listings.

7.  Virginia Tech vs North Carolina Basketball 1/19/2012 Cassell Coliseum, Blacksburg,VA

The Hokies will be hosting the #8 ranked ACC rival North Carolina Tarheels.  UNC is always a big draw in Blacksburg.

8.  Indiana vs Penn State Basketball 1/22/2012 Assembly Hall, Bloomington, IN

Although #11 Indiana lost big on national TV yesterday, Indiana basketball fans still have Hoosier fever…

9. Miami Heat vs LA Lakers 1/19/2012 American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL

Kobe vs Lebron and Wade.  Enough said…

10. AMA Supercross 1/21 Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA

The AN FIM World Championship (I have no idea what that means) is apparently a big event with the west coast X games fans.  I have to admit that seeing a Supercross in Dodger Stadium would be pretty cool though.

AFC and NFC Championship Games Set

Giants vs 49ers NFC Championship

Wow, what a weekend of football we had.  Both the AFC and NFC divisional match ups lived up to all the hype with the exception of the Patriots vs Broncos game.  That game was never close as Tom Brady and the Pats destroyed Denver 45-10.  With the win the Patriots will host the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.  The Ravens bested the Houston Texans by a final score of 20-13.  The Patriots – Ravens match up should a great one as it pits one of the best offenses in the league against one of the top defenses.  These two teams are no stranger to playing each other in the playoffs and will meet once again next week at Gillette Stadium in Boston, Massachusetts.

In the NFC both games results in upsets.  On Saturday, we saw the San Francisco 49ers offense actually outscore Drew Brees and the high powered Saints offense 36-32.  Althought the 49ers were higher seeded (#2 vs #3), most experts pick the Saints to easily beat the 49ers and 1st year head coach Jim Harbaugh.

In an even bigger upset, the NY Giants, who squeaked into the playoffs with a modest 9-7 record, defeated the  heavily favored 15-1 Green Bay Packers.  The Giants defense gave Aaron Rodgers plenty of pressure and the high powered Packers offense never got going.  The Giants looked very impressive beating the Packers by a score of 37-20.

With the Packers being the #1 seeded team, the #2 San Francisco 49ers will  get to host the NFC Championship game at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

Stay tuned right here as we will announced when the games will be scheduled.
