Aldean, Swift Look to Catch 1D – Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches

Can Jason Aldean supplant 1 Direction as the most search for concert?

In the horse race we like to call the Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches, One Direction is still way out in front.  However, country music stars Jason Aldean (#2)  and Taylor Swift (#4) are surging with new albums outs and tour dates about to go on sale.  While 1 Direction still has a comfortable lead, we expect demand for Jason Aldean and Taylor Swift tickets to increase as tickets go on sale and quickly sell out.

As always, college football continues to be in big demand with power house SEC teams   Alabama, Texas A&M, and Georgia leading the way.

Here is the rest of this week’s top 10..

 Top 10 Weekly Event Ticket Searches (10/29 – 11/5/2012)

1.  One Direction

Absolutely no sign of a One Direction slowdown.  In fact, One Direction search traffic peaked on Friday with over 2500 unique searchers looking for 1D tickets

2.  Jason Aldean

Jason Aldean continues to be a staple on our top 10 list.  This week he comes in at #2 followng the release of his latest album Night Train and subsequent tour announcement.

3.  Georgia Bulldogs Football

The Georgia Bulldogs sit at 8-1 and are currently #5 in the BCS standings.  If Oregon, Kansas State, or Notre Dame falter, the Bulldogs could slide into the BCS Championship.

4.  Taylor Swift

Pop country sensation Taylor Swift continues her strong showing before tickets to the her 2013 Red Tour even go on sale.

5.  Disney On Ice

Disney on Ice is featuring 5 unique shows this winter:  100 Years of Magic, Dare to Dream, Rockin’ Ever After, Treasure Trove, and Worlds of Fantasy.  Ticket sales have been extremely strong so far in anticipation of the holiday season.

6.  Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood makes the list for the first time in a while.  It’s not much of a surprise though as the award winning country artist is currently right in the middle of her 2012 Blown Away tour.

7.  Eddie Vedder

Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder is currently out on the road through December with multiple shows in Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida coming up.

8.  Alabama Crimson Tide Football

After a huge win over LSU, Alabama is the undisputed #1 team in the country.  Bama fans will get see the games of the regular season against Texas A&M, Western Carolina, and Auburn in Tuscaloosa.

9.  Texas A&M Aggies Football

Texas A&M has had a pretty successfull SEC debut after getting off to a 7-2 (4-2 SEC) start.  This week they will take on the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide.

10.  Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football

After getting a scary over-time victory over un-ranked Pitt, Notre Dame is still unbeaten and sits at #4 in the BCS standings.  The Fighting Irish will face Boston College and Notre Dame before closing out the season against the USC Trojans.

 

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.

 

Chris Cornell kicks off 2011 Songbook Tour

Chris Cornell 2011 TourSoundgarden frontman Chris Cornell is set to begin his fall “SongBook” tour with a sold out show in Memphis Tennessee on Tuesday November 1st.  Cornell just recently wrapped up touring with Soundgarden for the first time in over 10 years and will stay on the road for the second leg of his solo tour.

Top Weekend Events July 15 – 17

Yay Wednesday!

Well, the top thing that stood out to me for this weekend is that those Ontario-ans certainly want to get out of the house this weekend.  Three Ontario events made the top events for this weekend, including the Jimmy Buffett show, Vans Warped Tour and the Taylor Swift show.  The Vans Warped Tour in Mississauga has an impressive lineup including 3oh!3, Anti-Flag, Bad Religion, Devil Wears Prada, Flogging Molly, Less Than Jake, Madina Lake, NOFX, A Day to Remember and MANY others.  This is sure to be a really fun concert experience.   Taylor Swift has recovered from her bronchitis last and resumes her Speak Now tour.  Taylor will be playing in Ontario on both Friday and Saturday.  Jimmy Buffett shows up again on this list, unsurprisingly.  His current song with the Zac Brown Band, Knee Deep, is a huge hit on the country music stations at the moment.

Sir Paul McCartney kicks off his five city tour this weekend in the Big Apple.  He plays both Friday and Saturday at Yankee Stadium then moves on to Detroit (Sunday, July 24), Montreal (Tuesday, July 26 and Wednesday July 27), Chicago (Sunday, July 31 and Monday, August 1) then concludes in Cincinnati on Thursday, August 4th.   The former Beatles band mate will be playing all his shows in ballparks.  Should be a great time!

Eddie Vedder returns to his roots and the home of grunge music this weekend for a Seattle show.  The lead singer of Pearl Jam has taken his solo tour on the road and is exceptionally popular.

Brad Paisley, NKOTB and O.A.R. come up again on the top weekend list as they are perpetually popular for summertime concerts.

For your sporting news, the LA Galaxy soccer team will host the Spanish soccer superstars the Real Madrid this weekend.  This is the first time since 2007 that the Galaxy will play at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, as part of the 2011 World Football Challenge.  Of note, Mr. Posh and all around hunk, David Beckham has played for both teams.  This is a rematch of last year’s very exciting match played at the Rose Bowl.

Top Weekend Events July 8 – 10th

I hope that everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!

Well, this is another hot weekend for concerts.  The bands/singers on this weekend’s list are all pretty mainstream, top revenue getters.  While Rascal Flatts  is the top of the list for weekend, Taylor Swift’s Atlanta concert in Atlanta certainly getting a lot of attention.  This particular concert was pinged on this list a good number of times, but it is because she had to cancel this cancel this concert and her Charlotte, North Carolina Show due to bronchitis.   Her Atlanta show will be rescheduled for October 1 and her Charlotte show will be rescheduled for November 16th.  Hopefully she feels better soon!

Of course the other country music stars, Sugarland, Tim McGraw and Keith Urban are all still doing exceptionally well.  Keith Urban’s Get Closer 2011 World Tour is in support of his 7th studio Album, Get Closer, which was released on November 16th, 2010.  Jennifer Nettles’, the lead singer of Sugarland, star power is increasingly on the rise as well.  She’s been featured in a number of main stream magazines lately including Self Magazine, Stylenews and OK!  And OPRAH magazine lately.

O.A.R. is a former college band turned rock superstars.  The group got their starts as Buckeyes at Ohio State University.  They are well known for their live performances and jam band elements making each song unique.  Of the same vein, Dave Matthews Band (DMB) is making a strong showing this weekend whom are also known for their lengthy improvisational renditions of their hits, oftentimes with an intricate video and lighting show.  This Caravan show is in salute to their 20 year anniversary as a band.  They are playing 3, multi-day, multi-artist music events.  The Chicago show is the first event, followed by the New York City show on August 26th and finishing up in Quincy, WA on September 2nd.

Top Weekend Events – June 24 – 26

Woo hoo, the weekend is almost upon us!
This Saturday appears to be the most popular day to get out and go see some shows or sporting events. Fans want to get out of the house and enjoy great summertime activities!
I think there is a tie between the top two events this weekend. The CONCACAF Men’s Finals Soccer Gold Cup Event is going on this Saturday in beautiful Pasadena. The competitors in the Finals will be decided in the Semifinals, which are happening today in Washington D.C. and East Rutherford, NJ. The teams competing today are United States vs. Panama and Honduras vs. Mexico. Those are all teams with exceptionally loyal fans, particularly Mexico. This will be a hot event.
The other hot event on the weekend is the Taylor Swift show happening in Boston. This particular event was flagged multiple times in the top weekend events list. She is also playing at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, June 26th. Taylor’s next few stops land her in Greensboro, NC, Knoxville, TN and Louisville, KY.
Also of note, Mr. Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, has two weekend shows making the list. His most recent album, Ukulele Songs, with a live DVD named Water on the Road, was released on May 31st of this year. These two shows are part of his month-long tour which started on June 15th and will conclude on July 15th at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall. Glen Hansard from The Swell Season and The Frames joins him on his brief tour.
Vans Warped Tour is making many stops across the US. The Dallas show seems to be particularly popular. The Dallas event features the following line up 3OH!3, A Day to Remember, Against Me!, Less Than Jake, Madina Lake, Relient K, Simple Plan, The Devil Wears Prada, Unwritten Law, and MANY others.
Sade is a relatively vintage band from England that formed in 1983. The band is a blend of R&B, soul, jazz, funk and soft rock. Their sixth studio album, Solider of Love, was released on February 8th, 2010. This is their first album of new material in nearly a decade. Sade’s global tour, Sade Live, kicked off in April 2011.
Some baseball finally made the list! I feel it’s been kind of slow season for baseball this year. East meets west with the Oakland A’s traveling to Philadelphia. The Reds and Orioles game, I’m kind of shocked to see on the list, but if there’s apparently a strong interest.
At this rate, Jimmy Buffett and Rascal Flatts are a given on the list. Expect them to remain on the top weekend events list for the remainder of the summer.
