The Return of Teen Pop – Tickifieds Top 10

Jonas Brothers 2013 TourIf there was a theme to this weeks top ten it would have to be all about comebacks.  Yeah, One Direction is still on top but this week we saw the return of several other pop stars who once dominated the Tickifieds Top 10 at some point in their careers.  Not only did Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber earn their way back into the top 10 but the Jonas Brothers appear to be back as well.

If only the New Kids on the Block, who are currently touring with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men, can gain a little traction the top 10 would really be dominated by bumble gum pop acts.  Fortunately, some other events did make the list.  Let’s take a look at the rest of this week’s list….

2.  Chicago Blackhawks

A bit of a surprise here as the Blackhawks have been floundering of late.  However, the best team in hockey has fans that are amped up for another run at the Stanley Cup.  Fan are really searching for 2013 Blackhawks Playoff tickets.

1D Back on Top, Rolling Stones Surge – Tickifieds Top 10

Rolling Stones 50 and Counting Tour LogoAfter a few weeks out of the spotlight, One Direction regains that Tickifieds Top 10 Throne.  However, it could be somewhat short-lived if rock legends the Rolling Stones have anything to say about it.  The Stones recently announced plans to tour the US this summer and tickets just went on sale today.  Considering the Stones really only had 1 day of search traffic, coming in at number 2 this week is pretty impressive.

Also new to the list this week are some NBA basketball teams.  With the 2013 regular season rapidly coming to a close, now is the time to start marketing NBA playoff tickets.  High on sports fans wish list thus far are the upstart LA Clippers and the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat.
