Taylor Swift gaining on 1D – Tickifieds Top 10

TaylorSwift3Top Events Week 22 (5/22/2013 to 5/28/2013)

1. One Direction

Another week goes by with One Direction kicking everyone’s butts.  With recent announcement of 2014 tour dates don’t expect things to change anytime soon. Really hot right now are tickets to their 2014 concert in Dublin!

2.  Taylor Swift

Miss Swift continues to surge and comes in at an impressive #2 this week.  Although she is still a considerable distance from 1D, if she continues this trend she could surpass the current “kings of tickifieds”.  Popular Taylor Swift concerts include Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston.

3.  Hunter Hayes

The 21 year old country crooner Hunter Hayes has been hot this past week climbing up the charts all the way to #3 this week.  It’s no surprise he is up for several Teen Choice Awards including Top Male Country Artist.  Top Hunter Hayes concerts include 7/18 at the Porter County Fair in Valpo, 8/4 in Costa Mesa and Dayton Ohio on 7/23.

4.  Chicago Blackhawks vs Detroit Red Wings

With the Red Wings head to the NHL Eastern Conference next season, this mark the last time these old rivals will meet in the conference playoffs.  As such, it’s fitting that the Blackhawks have come back from the brink of elimination to force a historic Game 7.

5.  San Antonio Spurs NBA Finals

The San Antonio Spurs are not one of the most popular NBA franchises but that has not stopped them from continuing to win.  Spurs tickets for the 2013 NBA Finals are hot this week as this is probably the last hurrah for this current core of players.  Also, it doesn’t hurt that Spurs NBA Finals tickets are surprisingly affordable.

6. Ke$ha

Fresh on the heels of the debut of her new reality show, her summer 2013 tour with Pit Bull and solo tour this fall, Kesha is hot right now.  Hot concerts right now include Columbus OH,   Atlanta GA and Raleigh NC.

7.  San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers may have lost the Super Bowl but they are odds on favorites to win it all this year.  Fans are excited to see what exciting young QB Colin Kaepernick can do with a full season at the helm of the Jim Harbaugh offense.  Big games include the season opener against the Green Bay Packers, September 22nd against the Indy Colts and Houston Texans on October 6th, 2013.

8.  Boston Bruins vs Pittsburgh Penguins Eastern Conference Finals

It doesn’t get much better than an Eastern Conference Finals showdown between 2 historic rivals in the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins.  Games 1 and 2 will be played in Pittsburgh with Games 3 and 4 in Boston.  Game 1 is on Saturday June 1st.

9.  Alabama Crimson Tide

College football season seems like an eternity away but that has not stopped Alabama Crimson Tide fans from gobbling up tickets for the 2013 season.  Bama is expected to compete for a national title once again so demand should be strong all year.

10.  Beyonce

Beyonce will be returning to the states to resume her 2013 Ms Carter World Tour.  Popular shows include Brooklyn, Dallas and Washington DC.

1D Back on Top – Tickifieds Top 10

Beyonce The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour

Beyonce surges this week to #2 on the Tickifieds Top 10 after announcing her plans to tour in 2013.

Although much of the country was buried in the snow this past week, the hint of spring is in the air as more artists announced plans for summer tours and festival lineups are starting to leak out.  However, this past week has been all about Beyonce as demand for tickets to her 2013 The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour is particularly strong.   Although they just missed list, a late surge by Pearl Jam is also of note.  Pearl Jam broke a box office record by being the fastest concert to sell out at Wrigley Field.  Considering Wrigley Field has hosted the likes of Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffet, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Roger Waters, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band, Rascal Flatts, Elton John, Billy Joel and the Police that is pretty impressive.

So, without further delay, here are your top events on Tickifieds.com this week….

Top Events Week 6, 2013

1.  One Direction

After a week knocked out of the spotlight by the Super Bowl, 1 Direction is back on top as the #1 event on Tickifieds.  Teenage girls are still eagerly looking for the highly coveted meet and greet passes.  However, they are quickly disappearing.  As always, you need only look at our list of the most popular ads to see just how dominant One Direction is…

Country Music star Tim McGraw is going to be busy in 2013.  He is currently wrapping up his Soul2Soul stint with Faith Hill in Las Vegas before heading out on his 2013 2 Lanes of Freedom summer tour with Brantley Gilbert and Love and Theft.  Tim McGraw will also be playing the 2013 Houston Rodeo.

4.  2013 NCAA Tournament

Interest in College Basketball is really starting to heat up as the fight for a berth in the 2013 NCAA Tournament heats up.  Although ticket sales won’t really heat up until Selection Sunday (3/17/2013), college basketball fans in opening round cities are already buying up seats.  This year the 1st Four will take place in Dayton and 2nd and 3rd Round games will be hosted in Salt Lake, Detroit (Auburn Hills), San Jose, Lexington, Kansas City,  Austin, and Philadelphia.

6.  The Lumineers

The Lumineers are one of the hottest folksy bands on the planet right now following in the footsteps of the Mumford and Sons and The Avett Brothers.  Their hit song “Ho Hey” is seemingly everywhere right now.  Popular upcoming shows include 4/19 in Berkeley,  4/26 in Austin, and 5/4 at Riverbend in Cincinnati.

10. Justin Bieber

After several weeks of being nowhere to be found, Justin Bieber returns to the Top 10 this week.  This is no doubt in response to his appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend.  TheBiebs will be touring Europe of the next couple of months before returning to the states on June 22nd for his sold out show in San Diego.

Chris Brown F.A.M.E. Tour Dates

Chris Brown just announced his new tour, F.A.M.E., which will start next month.  Brown released an album under the same name in the middle of March.  Joining him on his tour includes T-Pain, Kelly Rowland (formerly of Destiny’s Child) and Tyga.  Presales already began last week, but public onsales started today.

According to Mr. Chris Brown, “”This tour will allow me to paint a picture musically. I want to bring a lot of energy and excitement to all the fans. It’s going to be a great show.”  Some of the songs on his album include “She Ain’t You”, a song that samples Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” and “Next to You”, featuring Justin Bieber.  The man sure knows how to surround himself with popular people!

Unfortunately, Chris is also most notoriously famous for his altercation with then girlfriend, Rihanna where he pled guilty to felony assault.   While his career did take a major blow after this incident, a solid core of his fans helped the F.A.M.E.  album sell about 270,000 units, earning Brown his first No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200.
