Jingle Ball and Taylor Swift Gain on 1D – Tickifieds Top 10

2012 Jingle Ball

With lineups of the various Jingle Balls and Jingle Jams slowly being revealed, it’s no wonder the Jingle shows are trending.

This edition of our top 10 events on Tickifieds.com is much the same as previous weeks.  One Direction is still king with both Taylor Swift and Disney on Ice trailing considerably. However,  a new challenger has emerged, the Jingle Ball and Jingle Jam events.  If your haven’t started promoting these “Jingle shows” now is the time to start!

Perhaps most noticeable, is the lack of football from the chart this week.  While we still get considerable traffic for both NFL and college football, only 1 NCAA football team made the list this week – the Clemson Tigers.  Several NFL teams essentially tied for 10th place but that is a far cry from previous weeks which were dominated by football.  This isn’t necessarily a reflection of the relative demand for football tickets but likely a statement about the virality(yes we did make up that word) of concert tickets.  Demand for football tickets is rather constant with the notable exception of when playoff and bowl game matchups are announced.

So let’s take a peak at what events are currently trending at Tickifieds…

Top 10 Weekly Event Ticket Searches (11/6 – 11/14/2012)

1.  One Direction

One Direction mania continues for yet another week.  While a few top acts are gaining some ground on 1D, things really aren’t all that close as Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam  Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson still have all the tweener girls swooning. In case you needed any further proof check out Tickifieds list of most popular events.

2.  Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift stays strong again this week as her tickets are scheduled to go on sale to the public on Friday.  Expect Ms. Swift to be a mainstay on this list for weeks and months to come.  The most popular shows appear to be 5/8/2013 in Columbus, 7/6/2013 in Pittsburgh, and 8/10/2013 in Chicago.

3.  Jingle Ball / Jingle Jam

With lineups of the various Jingle Balls and Jingle Jams slowly being revealed, it’s no wonder the Jingle shows are trending.  It also helps that tops acts like Justin BieberTaylor Swift, and One Direction will be playing a few of them.  Perhaps the most popular is the KIIS FM Jingle Ball which will take place over 2 days.

4. Disney On Ice

Disney on Ice (DOI) has a ton of shows throughout the holiday season across the nation.  Rather than list an enormous list of DOI shows, we suggest you search Disney on Ice  in our Concert and Event categories.

5. Bruce Springsteen

“The Boss” is back on tour after campaigning for president Obama.  Popular upcoming concerts include 11/28 in Portland, 11/30 in Oakland, and 12/6 in Glendale,

6.  Carrie Underwood

Country music superstar is still going strong as she wraps up her fall tour.  He recently announced 2013 schedule got her a bit of a bump this week.  Hot upcoming shows include 11/24 in Indianapolis, 11/27 in Pittsburgh, 12/1 in Newark, and 12/19 in Atlanta.

7. Clemson Tigers Football

Fans in Clemson South Carolina are excited about the prospect of being in a BCS Bowl game.  The Clemson Tigers are a solid bet to represent the ACC in one of the feature bowl games in 2013..perhaps the Sugar Bowl?

8.  The Who

Legendary rockers The Who are currently out on tour and have a ton of shows schedule through February 2013.  Notable upcoming shows include 11/24 in Detroit, 11/27 in Minneapolis, and 11/29 and 11/30 in Rosemont.

9.  National Finals Rodeo

The National Finals Rodeo is getting set to take stage in Las Vegas this December.  This annual event will take place from December 6th through the 15th at the Thomas and Mack Center and is always a big draw.

10.  NFL Football

This one was close so we just decided to lump several NFL teams together who all both almost made this weeks top 10 list.  Notable teams include the NY Giants, Chicago Bears, Atlanta Falcons, and even the Minnesota Vikings.  Where are the AFC teams?

This top 10 list is compiled from internal search data from Tickifieds.com and organic traffic from search engines.  Search terms are ranked by using a combination of both sources of search data.

Top 10 Fathers Day Ticket Gifts

Last Minute Fathers Day Gift IdeasEvery year many people struggle finding that perfect gift for their fathers on fathers day.  After all, how many times can you give your dad a tacky tie or a tool that will just take up space in the garage.  A new trend for father’s day gifts is giving the gift of tickets.  For many fathers, including myself, what more could you ask for than a day set aside to spend time with your kids at the local ballpark, concert venue, or even the race track.  So with that in mind, we have provided all the slackers out there who have yet to pick out their fathers day gift our Top 10 list of Tickets to give on Fathers Day!

Top 10 Fathers Day Ticket Gifts

1.  MLB Baseball

Nothing is more American or “Dad” than baseball.  What a perfect tradition to start – catching a ball game together on father’s day.  What great is that MLB baseball tickets are  surprisingly affordable and easy to get (especially in June).

2.  NFL Football

Football and fatherhood seem to go hand in hand.  While the NFL in June is a bit of an afterthought, many do not realize that tickets for the 2012-13 season are already available for purchase. With preseason games starting up in less than 2 months there is no better time to set aside a Sunday to spend with your father.

3.  Bruce Springsteen

The Boss is currently on Tour with the E Street Band and is extremely popular with dads in the 40-50 year old range.  What’s great about Bruce is that his music is timeless and can easily be enjoyed by both father and child.

4.  NASCAR

Another sport extremely popular with the men is auto racing.  With both the Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series running through the summer, a NASCAR weekend is never a bad gift for the motorsport loving dads out there.

5.  College Football

Many, especially in the South, consider college football a bigger attraction than even the NFL.  For those fathers out there a ticket to their favorite college football team’s game is about as good as it gets.  What’s even better is that tickets to just about every upcoming college football game is already available and deals can be had for those who buy early.

6.  Jimmy Buffet

For those with “Parrot-head” parents, what better fathers day gift than tickets to see Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band. Jimmy Buffett is touring through the US once again this summer.

7.  WWE

Ok, so maybe not all dads are into professional wrestling but there are not many better fathers-son bonding events than the WWE.  The WWE is constantly on tour so there should be no shortage of events from  to to chose from nearby.

8.  Neil Young

For all the old fogy rocker dads out there, seeing Neil Young back with Crazy Horse would bring back some memories.  So if you dad is going through a mid-life crisis getting some Neil Young tickets might be the way to go!

9.  PGA Golf

Taking in a golf tournament is not for everyone but the vast majority of dads either play golf or watch golf.  If your dad is a fan of golf there are dozens for PGA tournaments scheduled for this summer.

10.  Soccer

Ok, so maybe I wouldn’t have any interest in spending my father’s day watching soccer but it is the most popular sport in the world and tickets seem to be getting more and more popular.  Whether you want to catch one of the ‘exciting’ MLS games or an international friendly, soccer tickets are a great gift for any soccer loving dad.
