Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – One Direction Continues Roll

One Direction TicketsAnother week goes by and One Direction is still the most searched for performer and/or sports team on Tickifieds.com.  This week marks the 9th week in a row the British boy band has earned top honors.  Tweenage girls can’t seem to get enough of these young chaps and ticket demand is insanely strong- especially for One Direct Meet and Greet passes.  1D actually gained an ever larger share of the search traffic this week as they likely got a boost following their performance on the Teen Choice Awards.

However, with the opening of NFL and NCAA training camps, we are starting to see football make it’s presence felt.  Several NFL and college football teams got a boost this past week as tickets are starting to go on sale to the public.  Expect football to be a mainstay on the list through the Super Bowl in February.

Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – One Direction Back on Top

One Direction Tour is #1After just 1 week sitting at #2 on the weekly Tickifieds.com Top 10 Weekly Searches, One Direction (1D) has reclaimed the top spot.  We would go into detail as to why One Direction is dominating the event ticket industry right but we have been there and done that.  What is more intriguing this week is the return of sports to the list.  It’s not all that surprising as both the NBA and NHL playoff are heating up significantly (no pun intended).  Last week the NBA playoffs suffered a big blow as Derek Rose and the major market Chicago Bulls fell to the Philadelphia 76ers.  Many fans thought that meant the Miami Heat had an easy and uninteresting path to the NBA Finals.  However, Lebron Jame and Dwayne Wade lost their partner in crime Chris Bosh to an injury.  Following the loss of Bosh the Heat have lost 2 in a row to the #3 seeded Indiana Pacers.  The series between the Heat and Pacers has been getting testy and, as a result, both the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers are this week’s #2 and #3 search terms this week.

Also making the top ten this week are the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook led team is up 3-1 on the Lakers and looks like they will be facing the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Western Conference Finals.  Playoff hockey is also generating quite a bit of fan interest as the LA Kings come in at #4 and the NY Rangers #8.    The Kings are up 3-0 on the Phoenix Coyotes and will look advance to the Stanley Cup Finals with another win on Sunday.  The Rangers are currently up 2-1 and will be in New Jersey for game 4 on Monday, and at Madison Square Garden for game 5 on Wednesday.  Here is the rest of the top 10.

Top 10 Tickifieds Ticket Searches

1.  One Direction

The British Boy Band invasion continues as One Direction reclaims the top spot on the Tickifieds search results.  1D fans are still scrambling to find tickets to these sold out show with prized meet and greet tickets demanding top dollar.

2.  Miami Heat

There always seems to be drama in Miami Heat locker room.  Chris Bosh is out and Dwayne Wade continues to act like a child and the Heat find themselves down 1-2 against the superstar-less Indiana Pacers.  The Heat maybe the most polarizing team in professional sports and it is reflected in ticket interest.

3.  Indiana Pacers

Not many gave the Indiana Pacers a chance to even win a game against the Heat let alone have a chance to get past them and go to the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals.  Pacer fans are starting to believe and fan in Indianapolis would love to be there when the Heat go down.

4.  Los Angeles Kings

The LA Kings came out of nowhere and have dominated the NHL Western Conference.  The Kings are up 3-0 and look like a lock to make the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Finals.  Not bad for a #8 seed no one thought would make it out of the first round.

5.  Mexico vs Brasil Soccer

International friendly soccer matches are garnering a lot of attention this year as soccer is starting to gain traction in the US.  The match between Mexico and Brasil is one of the biggest.

6.  Avicii

Tim Bergling, aka Avicii, is apparently taking the US by storm.  The Swedish DJ, remixer, and record producer is hot right as indicated by his numerous sold out shows throught the country.

7.  Oklahoma City Thunder

With the Heat not looking like the team James and Wade proclaimated would win not two, three, four, but 7 NBA Championship, the door is wide open for the Thunder.  While OKC is not a major market sports city, fans are still selling out the stadium.

8.  New York Rangers

New Yorkers love their sports and the Rangers are perhaps the best team in the city.  The Rangers are currently up 2-1 in the NHL Eastern Conference Finals and are just 2 games away from the Stanley Cup Finals.

9.  American Idol

With American Idol down to the final 2 contestants (Phil Philips and Jessica Sanchez), fans are gearing up for the live tour.  Although tickets are still available in many cities, premium seats are long gone.

10.  LSU Football

For sports fans not into the NBA, NHL, or MLB, college football is just a few short months away.  The LSU Tigers are expected to once again compete for a national title despite losing half the team to the NFL in this years draft.  Tickets are already available on a limited basis.
