NYE and NFL on the Rise – Tickifieds Top 10

Green Bay Packers Tickets

The Green Bay Packers surge to #3 this week following their big win over the Chicago Bears. The NFC North Champs are once again headed to the playoffs.

Although we saw little movement atop this week’s Top 10 most searched for tickets at Tickifieds.com, several events and performers made their first appearance.  Making the largest jump this week is the Green Bay Packers.  Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and the Packers are fresh off clinching the NFC North and are looking towards the playoffs yet again.  Another NFL team making waves are the Washington Redskins. The Skins are currently in a 3 way battle for control of the NFC East.  If the Redskins can hold off the Dallas Cowboys and NY Giants, they would make the playoff for the first time in 5 years!

Other events to note are 3 New Year’s eve comedy and concerts that came in at a tie for the #10 spot on this week’s list.  Once Christmas is officially over, expect New Year’s related events to surge.

1.  One Direction

One Direction is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down as they maintain a comfortable lead over the competition.  1D will be appearing on the XFactor finale tonight so we should see another spike in 1 Direction traffic as parents scamble for last minute Christmas gifts.  Don’t forget, Tickifieds will also be giving away tickets to see One Direction see be sure to register for the ticket giveaway.  For all the details check out:  http://blog.tickifieds.com/win-one-direction-tickets-from-tickifieds-com/

2. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift continues to maintain her position just behind the champs One Direction.  Perhaps Swift is eyeing the top spot with the recent news she is dating 1D heart-throb Harry Styles.

3. Green Bay Packers

After a big win over the rival Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packer fans are hoarding tickets for the final game of the season (vs the Titans) as well as they playoffs.

4. Brrr! Music Festival

With a lineup that includes Moby, Miss Kittin, Magda, Deniz Koyu, Deniz Kurtel, Chus & Ceballos, Dubfire and Justin Martin , it’s no wonder there is heavy interest in the Brrr Music Fest.  The 2013 version of the festival will be held at Echo Beach in Toronto.

5.  Justin Bieber

Is Bieber Fever starting to cool off?  It sure seems that way as JB slips to #5 this week despite the fact that many tickets have yet to go on sale to the public.  Is the 18 year old starting to get washed up?

6.  BCS Championship

The 2013 BCS Championship game is still drawing considerable interest as fans are still searching for the best deals.  Demand should remain strong through the new year.

7.  Capital One Bowl

The 2013 Capital One Bowl continues to well represent college football.  Fans for both the Georgia Bulldogs and Nebraska Cornhuskers travel well so it should be no surprise that this is one of the more popular bowl games.

8.  Washington Redskins

Robert Griffin III has led the Washington Redskins to a first place tie in the NFC East and has fans excited for the first time in years.  However, RG3 and the Skins are going to make the playoff they will have to beat the Dallas Cowboys in the final game of the season on December 30th, 2012.  This will be a huge game for ticket buyers!

9.  St. Louis Cardinals

It’s a little early to start thinking about baseball but Cardinal fans are an odd bunch.  What else is there to do in St. Louis?  Interest is particularly high for the 2013 Cardinals Season Ticket Holder Reception.

10.  10th Annual Greatest Night of Comedy Tickets

Chicago will be hosting a huge comedy event on New Year’s eve that will feature DeRay Davis, Aries Spears, Lil Duval and Jay Pharoah (of SNL fame) live at Arie Crown Theater.  The 10th Annual Greatest Night of Comedy is looking like it will be one of the hottest events this NYE.

10.  Widespread Panic NYE

Panic-heads are amped to ring in the new year with their favorite band, Widespread Panic.  this jam band with a huge following will be playing NYE at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC.

10.  Phish NYE

Phish, much like Widespread Panic, is a popular jam band picking up where the Grateful Dead left off.  Phish will be playing a series of shows at Madison Square Garden with the most popular being on New Year’s Eve.

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 Events This Weekend (12/30 – 01/01)

This is a HUGE weekend for ticketed events.  People feel the need to go out there and be part of something spectacular for New Year’s Eve.  Obviously sporting events are prevalent on the list given that the bowl season is upon us as well at important games for NFL Football and NHL Hockey.

The 2011 NHL Winter Classic takes place this year on New Years Day between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals  at 1:00 PM at Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  This will be one chilly yet exciting game outdoors at the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers!

Bowl games are obviously very successful events to promote.  While they remain very popular with big attendance, a lot of bowl game ticket prices are coming down.  Tickets for the Fiesta Bowl can easily be found for as little at $17.  Clearly this is not the case for the BCS Bowl between the Auburn Tigers and the Oregon Ducks.

Don’t let those college kids overestimate themselves.  There is plenty going on in the NFL as well.  A week after not even being assured a postseason position, the New Orleans Saints have the opportunity to earn home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs if are favorable to them in Week 17.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ postseason stance is not quite as sunny.  The Bucs need to defeat an opponent with a winning record for the first time all season and they still need to have two more outcomes go in their favor to even make the playoffs.

The New York Giants cling to their slim playoff hopes as they visit their rivals, the Washington Redskins.  It’s been a turbulent year in Washington as Head Coach Mike Shanahan hasn’t been the best at handling the public situations surrounding his players.  The New York Giants are in the middle of an all out meltdown like when they let a massive second half lead escpae from them against the Eagles two weeks ago.  They’ve also allowed their season slip away as well. The Giants need a win and a Packers loss at home to Chicago to make the playoffs.

And, if you still want to go to a football game, just for the heck of it, for super cheap, check out out the San Francisco 49’s vs. the Arizona Cardinals.  PLENTY of tickets to be found for under $30 each.

 Phish has also been quietly climbing the charts with their colorful and might I say smokey performances?  Never underestimate those that seem a little phish-ey.  Ok, that’s a terrible joke.

  1. NHL Winter Classic, Saturday, 01/01/2011 – Pittsburgh, PA
  2. Chick Fil-A Bowl Florida State vs South Carolina Tickets, Friday, 12/31/2010 – Atlanta, Georgia
  3. Fiesta Bowl Oklahoma vs Connecticut, Saturday, 1/1/2011 – Glendale, AZ
  4. Phish– Madison Square Garden, Friday, 12/31/ 2010 – New York, NY
  5. Capitalone Bowl Michigan State vs.  Alalabma, Saturday, 1/1/2011- Orlando, FL.
  6. Saints vs. Tampa Bay Bucs, Sunday, 01/02/2011, New Orleans, LA
  7. Redskins vs Giants, Sunday 01/02/2011, Washington, D.C.
  8. 49ers vs cardinals, Sunday 01/02/2011, San Francisco, CA
  9. Meineke Car Care Bowl – Clemson vs South Florida Tickets, Friday, 12/31/2010 – Charlotte, NC
  10. Syracuse – Notre Dame Basketball, Saturday 1/1/2011 – Syracuse, NY
