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.

Top Weekend Events – October 14th – 16th

Welcome to your Top Weekend Events list for this upcoming weekend!  Obviously NCAA football dominates this list again, but a couple other evens managed to sneak up in there.

First of the non-college football variety is the Honda SuperClasico match featuring the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team vs. Chivas USA.  The Galaxy is currently the MLS Western Conference regular season champs. Chivas has a slightly less than stellar record.  This should be an exciting game, but it is expected that the Galaxy to win.

Two major NFL teams also face off this weekend; the Dallas Cowboys vs. the New England Patriots.  The Patriots have really proven themselves to be a top notch team once again, so even if the Cowboys have put everything into preparing for this game, the Pats are still expected to come out on top.

The top college football game for this weekend is the Auburn vs. Florida game.   While both teams lost last weekend (to Arkansas and LSU respectively), both teams are expected to bounce back for an exciting game as these two teams are equally matched.

The Longhorns had a tough go of it last weekend against the Sooners last weekend.  Unfortunately, they’re not expected to do much better against the other Oklahoma team this weekend either, the Cowboys.  OK State is averaging over 50 points a game.

The Baylor Bears vs. Texas A&M Aggies will be another well matched and exciting game.  Last year, the Aggies came out on top, but perhaps this will be the Bears year.  Additionally, the South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs is another very evenly matched game.
