NBA and NHL Playoff Tickets Dominate – Tickifieds Top 10

Been a busy weelk so we’ll spare you the mindless chit-chat and get straight to this week’s top 10.

Top Events Week 15 (5/2/2013 to 5/8/2013)

1.  One Direction

Still no change atop the Tickifieds Top 10.  1D is still drawing record amount of traffic to Tickifieds.com.

2.  Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have been one of the more surprising stories of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.  Not only did a depleted Bulls team loaded with injuries pull off the upset of the Brooklyn Nets in the first round, they also stole home court advantage by beating the defending NBA Champs in Game 1.  Throw in rumors of a Derek Rose return and you can imagine there is a lot of interest in tickets.

3.  Justin Bieber

With Justin Bieber’s US Tour set to kick off in a month, ticket demand is starting to surge.  Of course the Justin Bieber Meet and Greet tickets are in big demand but so are tickets to shows in San Diego, Brooklyn and Omaha.

4.  Miami Heat

If the Chicago Bulls upset win over the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs did anything, it got Miami fans to wake up.  After a physical Bulls team had their way with Lebron James and Dwayne Wade, the Heat played with a sense on panic in Game 2.  With the series tied 1-1 there will certainly be a Game 5 in Miami.

5.  Darren Criss

Darren Criss slides a bit this week but nothing coming in at #5 is nothing to sneeze about.  The Glee star has shown impressive fan support on this his first tour.  Popular shows include Dallas, Nashville and New York.

6.  Chicago Blackhawks

The Chicago Blackhawks, the #1 overall seed in NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, have a 3-1 advantage over the Minnesota Wild.  The Hawks will look to clinch tonight and advance to the second round.  Fans are already looking to secure 2nd round playoff tickets as the Wild just aren’t going to get back into the series especially with all their goalie trouble.

7.  Golden State Warriors

Golden State Warrior fans haven’t had much to cheer about since the days of Chris Mullins.  That all changed when Stephen Curry fully emerge as the new face of the franchise.  The Warriors are up against the top seeded San Antonio Spurs and are all tied at 1-1.  Game 4 in Oakland is on Sunday and is getting a ton of traffic!

8.  Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins have looked impressive thus far with a commanding 3-1 lead over the Toronto Maple Leafs.  The Bruins will look to advance with Game 5 on Friday in Boston.

9. Justin Timberlake

JT recently announced the followup to his Legends of Summer Tour with Jay-Z – the 20/20 Experience World Tour.  Tickets haven’t even fully gone on sale yet but there is already huge demand.  Timberlakes most popular shows include Las Vegas, Houston and Columbus.

10.  New York Rangers

The New York Rangers are currently in a heated battle with the rival Washington Capitals.  The series is all tied up at 2-2 with Game 5 on Friday in Washington.  Game 6 will be on Sunday in New York.

Emblem3 to Challenge 1D? – Tickifieds Top 10

Can Emblem3 take down One Direction? Chime in and let us know!

We’re back with the Tickifieds Top 10 after a bit of a break.  At lot has changed since our last post but one thing remains the same – One Direction tickets are still the most in demand ticket in North America.  However, we may have a new challenger on our hands in Emblem3.  If you are not a fan of the reality show the “X Factor” you may have no idea who they are.  However, if you are an event ticket marketer, it is time to start paying attention.  Like One Direction, they did not win X Factor but have developed a large following due to exposure from the show.  The group is comprised of 3 talented young men from California (Wes Stromberg, Keaton Stromberg, and Drew Chadwick).  Although the are looking to follow in the footsteps of One Direction, don’t call them a “Boy Band”.  These guys create original music and play their own instruments.  Their sound is a fusion of alternative rock, ska, reggae and even a little rap- reminds me a little of a young Sublime.

See Emblem3 doing their original song “Sunset Boulevard” during the X Factor auditions below.

1.  One Direction

One Direction is still king of event tickets but a brand new challenger has come to the forefront – Emblem3.  How much longer can ID continue to dominate the event ticket market?
