2.  Taylor Swift

T-Swift came up a bit short in her bid to unseat the reigning champion One Direction.   Tayor Swift will be out in Canada for the next couple of weeks before heading back to the state to resume her Red Tour.

3.  Hunter Hayes

For the second week in a row, Hunter Hayes comes in at #3. This time the buzz is even stronger as Mr. Hayes recently announced his fall “Let’s Be Crazy” tour dates.  Popular shows include 8/11 in Billings, 11/2 in Greensboro and 12/6 in Kansas City.

4.  Jake Bugg

Another youngster to make the Tickifieds Top 10 – Jake Bugg.  The 19 year old often compared to Bob Dylan has already had a pretty remarkable career in his native England, is just now getting regular airplay in the US.  Jake Bugg is certainly someone to watch!  Hot shows include 9/17 in New York, 9/21  in Chicago and 9/18 in Boston.

5.  Michael Buble

We had thought the surge on interest in Michael Buble concerts had came and passed.  However, this week Mr. Buble came in at a respectable #5.  Hot concerts right now include Buffalo NY 9/24, Philadelphia 9/21 and  Los Angeles 9/29.

6.  Dave Matthews Band

With most schools just about out for summer, many youngsters are looking to snag summer concert tickets.  Nothings says summer concerts quite like DMB.   Popular upcoming shows include 7/12 at Riverbend, 7/23 at the Wharf and 7/5 at Alpine Valley.

7.  The Lumineers

The Lumineers recently announced their 2013 Fall Tour with Nathaniel Rateliff & Dr. Dog.  The tour will kick off at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on 9/14 and will extend through October.  Other popular shows include 10/4 in St. Louis and 9/22 in Portland.

9.  Mindless Behavior

Mindless Behavior is the latest in the seemingly long line of boy bands to make a splash on the Tickifieds Top 10.  Mindless Behavior will kick off their summer tour on 7/3 with a show at the Bob Hope Theater in Stockton CA.  Other popular shows include 7/9 in KC, 7/14 in Greensboro and 7/25 in Baltimore.

10.  Miami Heat

The Miami Heat squeaked out a series win over the Indiana Pacers and will face the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals.  Despite the fact that Heat look really vulnerable with the Big 3 reverting back to the Big 1, demand for Heat tickets are strong.  Probably because this may be about it for the current Heat bunch.

Taylor Swift gaining on 1D – Tickifieds Top 10

TaylorSwift3Top Events Week 22 (5/22/2013 to 5/28/2013)

1. One Direction

Another week goes by with One Direction kicking everyone’s butts.  With recent announcement of 2014 tour dates don’t expect things to change anytime soon. Really hot right now are tickets to their 2014 concert in Dublin!

2.  Taylor Swift

3.  Hunter Hayes

The 21 year old country crooner Hunter Hayes has been hot this past week climbing up the charts all the way to #3 this week.  It’s no surprise he is up for several Teen Choice Awards including Top Male Country Artist.  Top Hunter Hayes concerts include 7/18 at the Porter County Fair in Valpo, 8/4 in Costa Mesa and Dayton Ohio on 7/23.

4.  Chicago Blackhawks vs Detroit Red Wings

With the Red Wings head to the NHL Eastern Conference next season, this mark the last time these old rivals will meet in the conference playoffs.  As such, it’s fitting that the Blackhawks have come back from the brink of elimination to force a historic Game 7.

5.  San Antonio Spurs NBA Finals

The San Antonio Spurs are not one of the most popular NBA franchises but that has not stopped them from continuing to win.  Spurs tickets for the 2013 NBA Finals are hot this week as this is probably the last hurrah for this current core of players.  Also, it doesn’t hurt that Spurs NBA Finals tickets are surprisingly affordable.

8.  Boston Bruins vs Pittsburgh Penguins Eastern Conference Finals

9.  Alabama Crimson Tide

College football season seems like an eternity away but that has not stopped Alabama Crimson Tide fans from gobbling up tickets for the 2013 season.  Bama is expected to compete for a national title once again so demand should be strong all year.

Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – Five in a Row for 1 D

One Direction TourOk, this is getting a bit ridiculous.  How many weeks in a row can One Direction absolutely dominate the search rankings?  Now that Justin Bieber has completely fallen off the map, there are no contenders in sight to knock 1D out of the top spot.  This week marks 5 in a row for the British boy band…is it time for college football yet?

A good sign that football is not too far away is the fact that WVU came in at #6 and the SF 49ers  came in at #8 on the list this week.  Other than those two sporting events, the results this week were dominated by music festival and country music.

I’m boycotting 1 Direction this week….
