Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – Hangout Festival Unseats 1D

2012 Hangout Music Festival LineupAfter a nice mother’s day weekend it’s hard not reflect back on life and think about all of those accumulated memories.  If  you are anything like me, many of my fondest memories were made at a sporting events and even concerts.  I will never forget going to my first Chicago Cubs game with my family in 1984, to seeing my first concert with friends (The Offspring and Rancid at the Vic in Chicago in 1994) , or even attending my first music festival (Lollapalooza 1995).  Even in a recession (if that is what we are calling it these days) people long to be entertained.  So while the economy continues to struggle demand for tickets to concert, sports, and theater event remains as strong as any industry.

A good barometer of ticket demand is, and continues to be, the search data from our site Tickifieds.com.  Today, we are breaking down the top 10 ticket searches for the Week starting on Saturday May 5th and ending on Sunday May 13th, 2012.

Top 10 Tickifieds Ticket Searches

1.  Hangout Music Festival

The big outdoor music festival that takes place on Gulf Shores Beach continues to be a hot ticket.  With a lineup that includes Dave Matthews Band, Jack White, The Flaming Lips, Skrillex, Young the Giant and more it’s no surprise.

2.  One Direction

The British boy band One Direction (1D for short) continues to be extremely popular with the teens and tweens.  This is starting to look like the second-coming of Beatlemania..

3.  Freestyle Motocross

Thanks to high-caffine energy drinks and the ESPN X Games – Freestyle Motocross is as popular as ever.  There is a big event coming up in Orange County California in July that is generating a lot of interest.

4.  Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez is coming on strong thus far in 2012.  Despite her recent divorce, her new album and stint on American Idol is keeping her right in the spotlight.

5. Texas A&M Football

The Texas A&M Aggies bolted from the Big 12 and made the bold move to the SEC.  Tickets for Aggies football are in big demand as they will face top teams like LSU, Arkansas, and Florida in their inaugural season in the SEC.

6.  American Idols Live

The most popular show on television translate quite nicely into a US concert tour.  Tickets to AI just went on sale last friday and you can expect them to be a mainstay on the top 10 list.

7.  Bryan Adams

A bit of a shock here but I am guessing Bryan Adams tickets made a popular mothers day gift.

8.  Coheed and Cambria

New York native alt rockers Coheed and Cambria are currently on the road for their “Maiden England” tour with Iron Maiden.  They are also headlining the popular Riversedge Music Festival in St. Paul, MN.

Wolf Creek Amphitheatre in Atlanta will host the 2012 Funk Fest.  This year Erykah Badu will headline the show next weekend.

10. Incubus

Incubus is heading out on tour with fellow rockers Lincoln Park.  Who says rock is head?

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.

American Idols Live 2012 Tour Tickets On Sale Friday

American Idols LiveTickets to the 2012 version of American Idols Live! go on sale this Friday May 11th, 2012 at 10:00 AM.  For years, American Idol has been the #1 rated television show in the nation.  This year has been no exception as this season contestant are regularly referred to as the “best ever”.  While that high praise has mostly come from the surprisingly positive judges Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Steven Tyler there is no doubt this years contestants are uber talented.  Legendary producer Jimmie Iovine has been a little more critical but largely agrees with the judges.  So, when is American Idol going to name Jimmie Iovine a judge?  He is the only one these days capable of honestly judging the contestants these days!

The American Idol Tour will feature the top 10 finalists featured on this years show.  The 2012 American Idols Live Tour will showcase the talents of Christian rocker Colton Dixon, the ever-flamboyant DeAndre Brackensick, throwback rocker chick Elise Testone, Erika Van Pelt, funnyman Heejun Han, pop princess Hollie Cavanagh, diva in training Jessica Sanchez, the soulful Joshua Ledet, the Dave Matthewsesque Phillip Phillips and county cutie Skylar Laine.  The show is down to the final four:  Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet, and Phil Philips.  It will be interesting to see who prevails as there is certainly not a clear front runner.  Who do you think will be…the “next American Idol”?

Top Weekend Events Septemeber 23 – 25

Hooray Wednesday!

I’m going to go ahead and call it that the summer concert season is officially dead.  In its place, officially, is College Football!

There are certainly some exciting games this weekend!  The top game everyone seems to want to attend is the West Virginia vs. Louisiana State game.  These two teams are competitively matched.  LSU has an absolute top notch defense, but the Mountaineer’s quarterback, Geno Smith, is a formidable opponent.

The Fight Irish vs. Panthers game is surely another tough call on who would win.  Pitt’s offense and defense have a good balance, but is it enough to show up Notre Dame?

Colorado is expected to sweep Ohio State, particularly with their star QB, Tyler Hansen, and RB Rodney Stewart.

Boise State is certainly another team to keep a keen eye on.  Since the Broncos near slaughter of the Georgia Bulldogs at the start of the season, they’re on a fast track in the national title race.   QB, Kellen Moore, is one of the best and most effectual quarterbacks currently playing in the NCAA and is expected to shatter multiple records, including most touchdowns and most wins.

For your non-football related activities this week, the hot one is definitely the 3-day i Heart Radio Festival in Las Vegas.  The festival will feature top acts like LADY GAGA ,  JAY-Z , COLDPLAY , STEVEN TYLER, THE BLACK EYED PEAS,  KENNY CHESNEY, ALICIA KEY,  JENNIFER LOPEZ, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, JANE’S ADDICTION, NICKI MINAJ , DAVID GUETTA, RASCAL FLATTS, BRUNO MARS, KELLY CLARKSON, SUBLIME WITH ROME With special guest performances by USHER, STING and JEFF BECK.  It is one FULL line-up!!

Jeff Dunham is in the same field as Terry Fator.  They are both master ventriloquistsTime Magazine wrote about his puppet characters, “All of them are politically incorrect, gratuitously insulting and ill tempered.”
