Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – 1D Holds off Justin Bieber Again

One Direction TourAfter a crazy weekend with some of the hottest on sale events in recent memory, One Direction is still the king.  While we fully expected Justin Bieber to over-take the imported boy band on this weeks list of the top ticket searches on Tickifieds.com, it just was not meant to be.  Combined searches and traffic for Justin Bieber was extremely strong though. The “Biebs” came within a few percentage points of hitting the #1 spot for the first time after tickets to his 2012 Believe Tour went on sale.  Expect these two titans of teenage dreams to battle in out all summer long.

Despite all the hype and drama that comes along with these teenage pop icons, some other events are gaining a lot of traction with potential ticket buyers.  As you can see from the list below, sports are making a bit of a comeback with the basketball, hockey, golf, and even soccer making the top 10 this week.

Top 10 Tickifieds Ticket Searches

1.  One Direction

What else is there to say…1D is absolutely dominating the ticket market right now.  Not even the “Kurt Cobain” of his generation Justin Bieber can knock them off the pedestal.

2.  Justin Bieber

We were a little disappointed in the Biebs this week.  We thought for sure he would be #1 if only for one week.  Is Justin Bieber losing his following?

3.  Ryder Cup

With Tiger Woods breaking records, golf is back on the mind of many fans.  With the Ryder Cup slate for this fall in the Chicagoland area, expect it to be a hot ticket all summer long.

4.  Brazil vs Argentina

Brazil soccer makes the list once again but this time it appears people are specifically seeking out tickets to their match against Argentina.

5.  LA Kings Stanley Cup

With the LA Kings about to go up 3-0 to the New Jersey Devils in the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals, hockey fans in LA are starting to get excited.  The Kings will get a chance to win the  Stanley Cup in Game 4 right in LA.

6.  Miami Heat

The drama continues for the Miami Heat…After winning the first two games of the series, the Boston Celtics have evened things up with two wins in a row.  Game 5 in Miami and Game 6 in Boston, are expected to draw record ticket prices.

7.  American Idol

The season 11 American Idols are about to hit the road for their live tour and interested has been both strong and steady.  Ticket prices are very affordable and lots of volume is being sold.

8. Foster the People

Well at least there is one representative of good old rock and/or roll on the list this week.  Foster the People will be hitting the road hard in June as they wrap up their 2012 tour.

9.  Jason Aldean

It’s been a mighty good year for Jason Aldean.  The country crooner continues to be one of the searched for artists currently on tour.

10. Bama Jam

With an all-star lineup that includes Tim McGraw, Zac Brown Band, Kid Rock, Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Needtobreathe, Uncle Kracker, and Willie Nelson it’s no wonder BamaJam 2012 makes the top 10.  BamaJam will take place over 3 days (June 14-16) in, you guessed it, Alabama.

After being down 1-2 to the Indiana Pacers, Lebron James and Dwayne Wade have seemed to get the ship righted just in time for the Eastern Conference Finals.  Fans in Miami still suck but at least they are filling American Airlines Arena.
