Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – Hangout Festival Unseats 1D

2012 Hangout Music Festival LineupAfter a nice mother’s day weekend it’s hard not reflect back on life and think about all of those accumulated memories.  If  you are anything like me, many of my fondest memories were made at a sporting events and even concerts.  I will never forget going to my first Chicago Cubs game with my family in 1984, to seeing my first concert with friends (The Offspring and Rancid at the Vic in Chicago in 1994) , or even attending my first music festival (Lollapalooza 1995).  Even in a recession (if that is what we are calling it these days) people long to be entertained.  So while the economy continues to struggle demand for tickets to concert, sports, and theater event remains as strong as any industry.

A good barometer of ticket demand is, and continues to be, the search data from our site Tickifieds.com.  Today, we are breaking down the top 10 ticket searches for the Week starting on Saturday May 5th and ending on Sunday May 13th, 2012.

Top 10 Tickifieds Ticket Searches

1.  Hangout Music Festival

The big outdoor music festival that takes place on Gulf Shores Beach continues to be a hot ticket.  With a lineup that includes Dave Matthews Band, Jack White, The Flaming Lips, Skrillex, Young the Giant and more it’s no surprise.

2.  One Direction

The British boy band One Direction (1D for short) continues to be extremely popular with the teens and tweens.  This is starting to look like the second-coming of Beatlemania..

3.  Freestyle Motocross

Thanks to high-caffine energy drinks and the ESPN X Games – Freestyle Motocross is as popular as ever.  There is a big event coming up in Orange County California in July that is generating a lot of interest.

4.  Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez is coming on strong thus far in 2012.  Despite her recent divorce, her new album and stint on American Idol is keeping her right in the spotlight.

5. Texas A&M Football

The Texas A&M Aggies bolted from the Big 12 and made the bold move to the SEC.  Tickets for Aggies football are in big demand as they will face top teams like LSU, Arkansas, and Florida in their inaugural season in the SEC.

6.  American Idols Live

The most popular show on television translate quite nicely into a US concert tour.  Tickets to AI just went on sale last friday and you can expect them to be a mainstay on the top 10 list.

7.  Bryan Adams

A bit of a shock here but I am guessing Bryan Adams tickets made a popular mothers day gift.

8.  Coheed and Cambria

New York native alt rockers Coheed and Cambria are currently on the road for their “Maiden England” tour with Iron Maiden.  They are also headlining the popular Riversedge Music Festival in St. Paul, MN.

9.  Funk Fest 2012

Wolf Creek Amphitheatre in Atlanta will host the 2012 Funk Fest.  This year Erykah Badu will headline the show next weekend.

10. Incubus

Incubus is heading out on tour with fellow rockers Lincoln Park.  Who says rock is head?

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.

Romantic Valentine’s Day Performers

So, it’s Valentine’s Day.  Let’s celebrate the day with yet another list.  Who doesn’t love a good list?  My criteria for my lists are that they must be living AND performing now (hey, it’s my list, I can make whatever criteria I want).  I’m going to make two very distinctive lists.  The first list, being the top (in my opinion) romantic and heartwarming singers.  The other list, is for those of you celebrating “singles awareness day” and there for is hard, dark and heavy.  The lists are in no particular order.

 Top 10 romantic singers/performers  touring:

1.)    Celine Dion – Of course she’s on this list.  Every time you think about a large ship, you probably have “My Heart Will Go On” on repeat inside your head.  Luckily for everyone, she’s still on tour in Vegas.

2.)    Taylor Swift – So sure, sweet and good.  She’s every guys dream girl and every girl’s best friend.  She understands the female angst and sings all about it, but manages to make it sound sweet.

3.)    Bryan Adams – How many great love songs did this guy do?  His two most popular were probably “Have you Ever Really Loved a Woman” and “(Everything I do) I do it for you”.

4.)    Barry Manilow – Mr. Romantic songs himself!   With songs like “Mandy”, “Can’t Smile Without You”, and “Could it Be Magic?” he’s an obvious choice for this list.

5.)    Rod Stewart – With his career in its fifth decade, Mr. Stewart has been exceptionally popular with the ladies ever since.  Hehas sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the bestselling artists of all time.  He’s touring with another romantic artist, Ms. Stevie Nicks.

6.)    Enrique Iglesias- Yum.  Regardless of the fact that he makes good music or not, he is exceptionally attractive.  His latest album with his Latin styling is sure to woo the ladies once again.

7.)    Justin Bieber – Ah, the Bieb.  That hair!  That smile!  The ‘tweeners  just love him, and the rest of the world does too for that matter.

8.)    Harry Connick, Jr.  – He acts, he sings, he composes.  He has enough personality to fill an entire auditorium.  He makes the ladies swoon.  Gentlemen, you should take note of this man.

9.)    Rascal Flatts – Their country songs nearly all explode with love and affection for their family and friends.  You can’t listen to any of their songs and not have warm fuzzies.  They also Thave raised and donated millions of dollars to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.  How can you not love that?

10.) Rush – They’re just REALLY good.  I can’t think of one guy I know that doesn’t have a “man crush” on them.

 

 

Top 10 least romantic singers/performers touring:

1.)    Apocalyptica– Yea, heavy, rock grunge music doesn’t exactly convey that loving feeling.

2.)    Lil’ Wayne – Maybe it’s just me, but I find all his tattoos to be especially offputting.  Or maybe it’s the grill….

3.)    Kid Rock – Granted, he might be slowly turning the corner from his former darker, drug and booze filled rap days, but he’s still not universally appealing on a first date.

4.)    Lewis Black – I’m surprised that man hasn’t had a heart attack yet!  He is a ball of rage!  Avoid, avoid, avoid when you want a nice romantic evening.

5.)    Social Distortion – Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Social D, but punk and romance don’t go together unless you’re Avril Lavigne.

6.)    K$sha – Someone give that girl a bath!   Her club/techno music is not good for snuggling.

7.)    Widespread Panic –  Jam Band.  You’d sooner have an urge for some munchies before looking for love at one of WP’s shows.

8.)    Dispatch – Hard Rock =/= Romance.  Sorry, it’s true.

9.)    Barney Live In Concert - Birthday Bash! – Giant Purple Dinosaur with a Baby Voice.  Need I say more?

10.) Trey Anastasio from Phish. – Pleas see description for WP.

What are some of your favorite romantic or polar opposite of romantic musicians/peformers??
