Tickifieds.com Top Ticket Searches (3/2 to 3/4/2012)

Well the weekend is about over and I hope that all our loyal readers feel much more refreshed than I do.  It was an extremely busy weekend over here as we have been slaving away working on a new project – Event Bark.  Event Bark is a local event and entertainment guide where users can list local events.  While you may think that sounds a lot like Tickifieds it is actually quite different.  Although you can list event tickets for sale, Event Bark is much more focused on local and community events.  So, in addition to the normal concert, theater, and sporting events users can list thinks like garage sales, benefits and fundraisers, If you have a few minutes I encourage you to check it out and let us know what you think.  It has some really cool features such as integrated maps where you can view local events.  Any feedback would be appreciated as the site is still in beta.

Now, that the Event Bark pitch is out of the way, let’s take a look at what was hot over the weekend terms of ticket searches.  Top this weekend was swedish DJ Avicii who has 2 sold out shows in Kingston, RI and Amherst, MA in April.  It seems club music is here to stay with the popularity of Avicii, Bassnectar, and Skrillex.  Who knew?  Also ranking well this weekend are college basketball with conference tournament on the schedule for the upcoming week and international soccer.  The US and Mexico have scheduled several “Friendlies” leading up to the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying matches that seem to be extremely popular.  So here are the Top 25 Tickets searches this weekend…
