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!
