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….

Top Events Week 13 (4/1/2013 to 4/8/2013)

1.  One Direction

Without any massive on sale events or premiere sporting events to think of, One Direction easily defeated all other challengers.  Unless there is a major concert announcement in the work, expect 1D to remain at the top until the NBA and NHL playoffs start.

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.

3.  Taylor Swift

Much like Justin Bieber, this week Taylor Swift is enjoying somewhat of a resurgence.  Tickets to quite a few of her sold out 2013 Red Tour concerts saw a huge spike in traffic.  Popular Taylor Swift concerts coming up include 4/20 in Tampa Bay5/12 in Washington DC and 5/22 in San Antonio.

4.  Kid Rock

Kid Rock recently announced the second leg of his 2013 tour and ticket demand sky rocketed.  Joining Kid Rock on tour at select shows will be Uncle Kracker, Kool and the Gang and ZZ Top.  The most popular shows right now include the Woodlands Pavilion on 7/19, Atlanta on 9/14 and the Nebraskaland Days on 6/21.

5.  Jonas Brothers

Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas are back at it and will be out on tour this summer.  While they aren’t as popular as they once were, they are certainly drawing plenty of attention from the Generation Y’ers.  Popular concerts include 7/23 in Hartford, 7/16 at Blossom and 7/20 Jones Beach.

6.  Washington Nationals

The Washington Nationals continue to be one of the most exciting teams in baseball with the likes of young stars like Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasberg.

7.  LA Galaxy

It’s not all that surprising that the defending MLS Cup Champion LA Galaxy make the list. Even without David Beckham, the Galaxy continue to draw large crowds.

8.  Honda Civic Tour

The 2013 Honda Civic Tour will feature Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson and Rozzi Crane.  As you would expect, ticket demand has been more than solid.  Hot shows for this bunch include 9/14 at the Cruzan Amphitheater, 9/8 in Virginia Beach and 9/28 at the Gorge.

9.  Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber returns to the top 10 after a loooong hiatus.  The increase in traffic is somewhat surprising as he is about to finish up his european tour and isn’t scheduled to perform in the US until June. Nonetheless, popular shows include San Diego on 6/22Chicago on 7/9 and Brooklyn NY on 8/2.

10.  Luke Bryan

Country music star Luke Bryan continues to draw heavy interest for his 2013 Dirt Road Diaries Tour.  Popular upcoming shows include 7/21 Noblesville IN, 7/27 Phoenix AZ and 6/15 Tinley Park IL.

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.

Top Ticket Search Queries 2/23/2012

If you are involved in search engine optimization (SEO) you are probably well aware that Google no longer passes on search query data for users that are logged into their Google accounts.  With these recent changes it is becoming more and more important to analyze search data where ever you can obtain it.  Unless your website gets substantial search engine traffic it can be difficult to gather meaningful search engine data when anywhere from 40-60% of searches have no keyword data associated with it.  Fortunately, since Tickifieds gets thousands of unique visitors each day from search engines (primarily Google), we still get useful referral data even with a loss of roughly half of the data.  So, if you are an event ticket marketing guru you will want to check out or blog regularly as we will try and keep you informed on event ticket search trends.

In this new regular feature we combine search terms from major referring search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, AOL, Ask, Alta Vista, and Lycos with our native search to come up with the top 20 most searched performers and/or events.  Long-tailed keywords (which often include date, location, venue) are aggregated by performer where applicable.  As you can see from the list below, the most  searched for tickets typically involve performers with recent on sale events or events happening in the immediate future.

Tops in today’s search are the alternative rockers Chevelle.  The band from Grayslake Illinois is currently wrapping up their winter 2012 tour with sold out shows in Portland (Maine), New York, Atlantic City, Baltimore, Norfolk, Indianapolis, and Oklahoma City.

Top Weekend Events 8/12-14

The weekend is almost here, hooray!  It’s felt like a long week already.

The top half of the list is comprised of nationally recognized top acts.  Kid Rock has been absent from the top weekend event list for a while, but he’s finally making a comeback with a hometown concert.  Katy Perry holds the second spot on the list with her Teenage Dream tour.  Her most recent hit songs “Firework” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” are still blazing on the airways and every talent show that’s on TV right now.  Seriously, her songs have been featured on America’s Got Talent, The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) and others all within the past few weeks.  Her song popularity rivals Lady Gaga.

Britney Spears’ Toronto show was pinged a number of times in this top weekend list.  This is a HOT concert.  Her Femme Fatale show is continuing to draw huge crowds.

Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band (ZBB) seem like they’re the official voices of summer with their great summer songs like “Knee Deep” and “Flip Flop Summer”.  They pretty much scream hanging out around a campfire, drinking beer and hanging out with your friends.

Some of the lesser known names to hit the list include country music artist Jamey Johnson.  He is also the supporting act for Kid Rock’s 2011 Born Free tour and accompanying Rock on a duet or more most of the time.  His most popular song “In Color” peaked at #9 on the Country Music Charts in 2009.   Alison Krauss is a blue-grass-country singer, songwriter and fiddler. She’s currently working on an album with Robert Plant.  She’s been in the music business a long time and has been collecting accolades ever since.

As proof of the increasing popularity of Major League Soccer in the United States, The Columbus Crew makes their first appearance on the list.  The Crew is one of ten charter clubs of MLS, having competed in the league since its inception in 1994.  They have won five major trophies; MLS Cup 2008, the 2004, 2008 and 2009 Supporters’ Shields, and the 2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup

Overall, this should be a very interesting weekend.  Enjoy!
