Tickifieds Top 10 Events Week 20 2013

Top Events Week 20 (5/7/2013 to 5/14/2013)

1.  One Direction

The lads from One Direction will be officially invading the United States in less than a month now and ticket demand could not be any stronger.  Fans young and old are really amping up their search for those hard to get Meet and Greet, VIP and Sound Check packages.  Unfortunately inventory is extremely limited.

2.  Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins had one of the most exciting finishes to a NHL Playoff game/series in recent memory.  The Bruins were down 2 goals with 90 seconds remaining in a critical game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.  The Bruins advance to the second round and will face the NY Rangers starting with game 1 on Thursday.

3.  Selena Gomez

Pop princess Selena Gomez returns to the top 10 this week at an impressive #3.  The little peak in interest in Selena Gomez tickets is likely due to the amount of airplay her latest single off her new album  “Come and Get it” is getting.  Popular Selena Gomez shows include San Antonio, Boston and Toronto.

4.  Manchester City – Chelsea FC

Yankee Stadium will play host to two of Europe’s most popular soccer clubs this summer.  Manchester City will be taking on Chelsea FC in an international friendly on Saturday May 25th in the Bronx.  Tickets are seemingly in big demand for this Man City – Chelsea FC matchup!

5.  Michael Buble

Crooner Michael Buble recently announced plans to tour this summer and fall much to the delight of his fans.  Buble will kick off the U.S. leg of his tour with a show in Chicago and will visit other popular cities like Philadelphia, Tampa Bay and Duluth (GA).

6.  Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies are up 3-1 against the defending NBA Western Conference Champion OKC Thunder.  As such many experts are picking the Grizz to represent the West in the NBA Finals where they would likely matchup against the Miami Heat.

7.  Jimmy Buffett

Nothing says summer like Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band.  JB tickets for shows in East Troy Wisconsin (Alpine Valley), Chicago Illinois (Northerly Island) and Detroit Michigan (Comerica Park) are particularily hot right now.

8.  Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings made it through to the 2nd round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs and will face the heated rival Chicago Blackhawks.  Game 1 takes place tonight in Chicago, with Game 2 on Saturday 5/18.  The Series will head to Detroit for Game 3 on Wednesday 5/22.

9.  Darius Rucker

Most people know Darius Rucker as the infamous “Hootie” of Hootie and the Blowfish.  However, Darius has reinvented himself as a country music star.  His latest hit song “Wagon Wheel” is getting a ton of airplay.  Popular stops on his summer tour include Bethlehem PA, Greensboro NC and Savannah GA.

10.  Darren Criss

The darling of the Tickifieds Top 10 is starting to slide and is just barely hanging on at #10 this week.  Popular Darren Criss concerts this week include Cleveland, Toronto and Minneapolis.

NBA and NHL Playoff Tickets Dominate – Tickifieds Top 10

Been a busy weelk so we’ll spare you the mindless chit-chat and get straight to this week’s top 10.

Top Events Week 15 (5/2/2013 to 5/8/2013)

1.  One Direction

Still no change atop the Tickifieds Top 10.  1D is still drawing record amount of traffic to Tickifieds.com.

2.  Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have been one of the more surprising stories of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.  Not only did a depleted Bulls team loaded with injuries pull off the upset of the Brooklyn Nets in the first round, they also stole home court advantage by beating the defending NBA Champs in Game 1.  Throw in rumors of a Derek Rose return and you can imagine there is a lot of interest in tickets.

3.  Justin Bieber

With Justin Bieber’s US Tour set to kick off in a month, ticket demand is starting to surge.  Of course the Justin Bieber Meet and Greet tickets are in big demand but so are tickets to shows in San Diego, Brooklyn and Omaha.

4.  Miami Heat

If the Chicago Bulls upset win over the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs did anything, it got Miami fans to wake up.  After a physical Bulls team had their way with Lebron James and Dwayne Wade, the Heat played with a sense on panic in Game 2.  With the series tied 1-1 there will certainly be a Game 5 in Miami.

5.  Darren Criss

Darren Criss slides a bit this week but nothing coming in at #5 is nothing to sneeze about.  The Glee star has shown impressive fan support on this his first tour.  Popular shows include Dallas, Nashville and New York.

6.  Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks, the #1 overall seed in NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, have a 3-1 advantage over the Minnesota Wild.  The Hawks will look to clinch tonight and advance to the second round.  Fans are already looking to secure 2nd round playoff tickets as the Wild just aren’t going to get back into the series especially with all their goalie trouble.

7.  Golden State Warriors

Golden State Warrior fans haven’t had much to cheer about since the days of Chris Mullins.  That all changed when Stephen Curry fully emerge as the new face of the franchise.  The Warriors are up against the top seeded San Antonio Spurs and are all tied at 1-1.  Game 4 in Oakland is on Sunday and is getting a ton of traffic!

8.  Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins have looked impressive thus far with a commanding 3-1 lead over the Toronto Maple Leafs.  The Bruins will look to advance with Game 5 on Friday in Boston.

9. Justin Timberlake

JT recently announced the followup to his Legends of Summer Tour with Jay-Z – the 20/20 Experience World Tour.  Tickets haven’t even fully gone on sale yet but there is already huge demand.  Timberlakes most popular shows include Las Vegas, Houston and Columbus.

10.  New York Rangers

The New York Rangers are currently in a heated battle with the rival Washington Capitals.  The series is all tied up at 2-2 with Game 5 on Friday in Washington.  Game 6 will be on Sunday in New York.

Darren Who? – Tickifieds Top 10

Darren Criss

Darren Criss will be out on tour in 2013 much to the delight of his legions of fans.

Although One Direction is still the #1 most searched for ticket in the land that is Tickifieds.com, it was still and interesting week as a performer I never even heard of popped up at #2 on this weeks’ top 10.  That performer is none other than Darren Criss.  While I like to think I am pretty knowledgeable when it comes  popular musical acts, this one caught me completely off guard.  I had to actually ‘google’ Mr. Criss to figure out who the heck he is.

It turns out, Darren Criss is a very talented fellow as he is an actor, singer, song writer and composer.  He is mostly know for his role as Blaine on the hit TV Series Glee but he also has had successful stints on How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and the movie  Girl Most Likely.

Criss’s first solo music tour, which is scheduled to visit 16 cities in the U.S. and Canada from May 29 – June 30, 2013, is set to include songs from Glee, StarKid, his Human EP, and new material from his upcoming solo album.

5.  New York Rangers

The NY Rangers will open up the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Washington Capitals on Thursday (5/2/2013).  Despite the fact that the Rangers are only a #6 seed, fans still have high expectations following the acquisition of Rick Nash.

8.  Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks earned the top overall seed and nothing less than the Stanley Cup will do for hockey fans in Chi-town.  The Blackhawks are already up 1-0 on the Minnesota Wild in the 1st round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
