Jingle Ball and Taylor Swift Gain on 1D – Tickifieds Top 10

2012 Jingle Ball

With lineups of the various Jingle Balls and Jingle Jams slowly being revealed, it’s no wonder the Jingle shows are trending.

This edition of our top 10 events on Tickifieds.com is much the same as previous weeks.  One Direction is still king with both Taylor Swift and Disney on Ice trailing considerably. However,  a new challenger has emerged, the Jingle Ball and Jingle Jam events.  If your haven’t started promoting these “Jingle shows” now is the time to start!

Perhaps most noticeable, is the lack of football from the chart this week.  While we still get considerable traffic for both NFL and college football, only 1 NCAA football team made the list this week – the Clemson Tigers.  Several NFL teams essentially tied for 10th place but that is a far cry from previous weeks which were dominated by football.  This isn’t necessarily a reflection of the relative demand for football tickets but likely a statement about the virality(yes we did make up that word) of concert tickets.  Demand for football tickets is rather constant with the notable exception of when playoff and bowl game matchups are announced.

So let’s take a peak at what events are currently trending at Tickifieds…

Top 10 Weekly Event Ticket Searches (11/6 – 11/14/2012)

1.  One Direction

One Direction mania continues for yet another week.  While a few top acts are gaining some ground on 1D, things really aren’t all that close as Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam  Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson still have all the tweener girls swooning. In case you needed any further proof check out Tickifieds list of most popular events.

2.  Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift stays strong again this week as her tickets are scheduled to go on sale to the public on Friday.  Expect Ms. Swift to be a mainstay on this list for weeks and months to come.  The most popular shows appear to be 5/8/2013 in Columbus, 7/6/2013 in Pittsburgh, and 8/10/2013 in Chicago.

3.  Jingle Ball / Jingle Jam

With lineups of the various Jingle Balls and Jingle Jams slowly being revealed, it’s no wonder the Jingle shows are trending.  It also helps that tops acts like Justin BieberTaylor Swift, and One Direction will be playing a few of them.  Perhaps the most popular is the KIIS FM Jingle Ball which will take place over 2 days.

4. Disney On Ice

Disney on Ice (DOI) has a ton of shows throughout the holiday season across the nation.  Rather than list an enormous list of DOI shows, we suggest you search Disney on Ice  in our Concert and Event categories.

5. Bruce Springsteen

“The Boss” is back on tour after campaigning for president Obama.  Popular upcoming concerts include 11/28 in Portland, 11/30 in Oakland, and 12/6 in Glendale,

7. Clemson Tigers Football

Fans in Clemson South Carolina are excited about the prospect of being in a BCS Bowl game.  The Clemson Tigers are a solid bet to represent the ACC in one of the feature bowl games in 2013..perhaps the Sugar Bowl?

Legendary rockers The Who are currently out on tour and have a ton of shows schedule through February 2013.  Notable upcoming shows include 11/24 in Detroit, 11/27 in Minneapolis, and 11/29 and 11/30 in Rosemont.

9.  National Finals Rodeo

The National Finals Rodeo is getting set to take stage in Las Vegas this December.  This annual event will take place from December 6th through the 15th at the Thomas and Mack Center and is always a big draw.

10.  NFL Football

This one was close so we just decided to lump several NFL teams together who all both almost made this weeks top 10 list.  Notable teams include the NY Giants, Chicago Bears, Atlanta Falcons, and even the Minnesota Vikings.  Where are the AFC teams?

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 Events Week 6, 2012

With Super Bowl XLVI taking place this weekend it is no wonder that the top 3 events this week are all Super Bowl related.  The Super Bowl is always a hot ticket but this year is especially big due to the teams involved:  the New York Giants and New England Patriots.  Not only do you have two of the largest sports markets in the country involved but you also have the two that hate each other the most.  Most people think of the Boston-New York rivalry as between Red Sox and Yankees fans.  However, the hatred spills over to all sports (Celtics vs Knicks, Patriots vs Jets/Giants, Bruins vs Rangers, etc.).  The NFL took a lot of heat for hosting the Super Bowl in a cold weather city (Indianapolis) but it doesn’t look like they are going to have any trouble attracting fans to all the festivities.Super Bowl XLVI

Although Super Bowl event dominated this weeks events, there are also plenty of other events worth mentioning.  Some old favorites and some new.  So without further delay, here are your top 10 events this week…

Top Events Week 4, 2012

jason-aldean-2012-Tour TicketsIt’s Monday and that means it’s time to take a look at what is happening this week in the world of sports, music and theater.  Our top event this week is none other than country music superstar Jason Aldean.  Jason Aldean’s 2012 My Kinda Party tour is making some major waves in the ticket resale market.  Joining Aldean on tour will be Luke Bryan and former American idol contestant Lauren Alaina.  Jason Aldean’s show at the Amway Center in Orlando came in at #4 this week and his show in Fayetteville Arkansas just missed the list at #11.

Also, making a strong showing this week are the NFC (#2) and AFC (#5) Championship games.  Ticket interest in the NFC Championship game is especially high as most fans expected the Green Bay Packers to be hosting the big game.  Since they lost, the 49ers will get the honors.

Here are the rest of this week’s top 10…

Top Events 2012 Week 2 (1/17/2012 to 1/23/2012)

1. Jason Aldean Concert 1/20/2012  Bi-Lo Center, Greenville SC

Mr. Aldean’s 2012 My Kinda Party tour is a hot item in Greenville South Carolina.

2.  NFC Championship:  49ers vs Giants 1/22/2012 Candlestick Park, San Francisco, CA

With the upset of the Green Bay Packers, the 49ers get to host the NFC Championship game against the NY Giants.  Tickets officially go on sale on Wednesday but there are plenty of tickets already listed on the secondary market.

3.  Red Hot Chili Peppers 1/21/2012 Amway Center, Orlando, FL

The Red Hot Chili Peppers tour is one of the biggest of 2012 and their show in Orlando is no exception.  The Amway Center will be rocking come Saturday night!

4.  Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons Concert 1/19 Community Theatre Morristown, NJ

The baby boomers sure are excited about the Frankie Valli and the Four Season 3 night stand at the Community Theatre in Morristown.  With lots of shows scheduled for 2012 this might be a big time sleeper!

5.  AFC Championship:  Patriots vs Ravens 1/22/2012 Gillette Stadium, Boston, MA

The Patriots in the AFC Championship game is a bit old-hat for Bostonites.  This game would surely be higher on the list had Patriots fans not gotten complacent over the years with such successful teams.

6.  Jason Aldean Concert 1/22/2012 Amway Center, Orlando, FL

Yet another Jason Aldean show on the list….with the popularity of country music these days it’s no wonder he is dominating the concert listings.

7.  Virginia Tech vs North Carolina Basketball 1/19/2012 Cassell Coliseum, Blacksburg,VA

The Hokies will be hosting the #8 ranked ACC rival North Carolina Tarheels.  UNC is always a big draw in Blacksburg.

10. AMA Supercross 1/21 Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, CA

AFC and NFC Championship Games Set

Giants vs 49ers NFC Championship

Wow, what a weekend of football we had.  Both the AFC and NFC divisional match ups lived up to all the hype with the exception of the Patriots vs Broncos game.  That game was never close as Tom Brady and the Pats destroyed Denver 45-10.  With the win the Patriots will host the AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens.  The Ravens bested the Houston Texans by a final score of 20-13.  The Patriots – Ravens match up should a great one as it pits one of the best offenses in the league against one of the top defenses.  These two teams are no stranger to playing each other in the playoffs and will meet once again next week at Gillette Stadium in Boston, Massachusetts.

In the NFC both games results in upsets.  On Saturday, we saw the San Francisco 49ers offense actually outscore Drew Brees and the high powered Saints offense 36-32.  Althought the 49ers were higher seeded (#2 vs #3), most experts pick the Saints to easily beat the 49ers and 1st year head coach Jim Harbaugh.

In an even bigger upset, the NY Giants, who squeaked into the playoffs with a modest 9-7 record, defeated the  heavily favored 15-1 Green Bay Packers.  The Giants defense gave Aaron Rodgers plenty of pressure and the high powered Packers offense never got going.  The Giants looked very impressive beating the Packers by a score of 37-20.

With the Packers being the #1 seeded team, the #2 San Francisco 49ers will  get to host the NFC Championship game at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

Stay tuned right here as we will announced when the games will be scheduled.

NFC and AFC Divisional Playoff Match-ups Set

broncos vs PatriotsThe NFL Wildcard Weekend is over and we have our matchups for both the NFC and AFC Divisional playoff games.  In the NFC the New Orleans Saints beat up on the Detroit Lions and will move on to San Francisco to face the 49ers.  The NY Giants of football also came up big and defeated the Atlanta Falcons.  The Giants will have the daunting task of playing Aaron Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay Wisconsin.

In the AFC the Houston Texans looked impressive in their victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.  The Texans will go on to face the Ravens at MT Bank Stadium in Baltimore Maryland.  Perhaps the most exciting game this weekend was between the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers.  This epic game went into overtime before Tim Tebow once again willed the Denver Broncos to victory.  The Broncos will move on to face the Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Boston Massachusetts.
