Tickifieds Top 10 Events Week 20 2013

Top Events Week 20 (5/7/2013 to 5/14/2013)

1.  One Direction

The lads from One Direction will be officially invading the United States in less than a month now and ticket demand could not be any stronger.  Fans young and old are really amping up their search for those hard to get Meet and Greet, VIP and Sound Check packages.  Unfortunately inventory is extremely limited.

2.  Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins had one of the most exciting finishes to a NHL Playoff game/series in recent memory.  The Bruins were down 2 goals with 90 seconds remaining in a critical game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.  The Bruins advance to the second round and will face the NY Rangers starting with game 1 on Thursday.

3.  Selena Gomez

Pop princess Selena Gomez returns to the top 10 this week at an impressive #3.  The little peak in interest in Selena Gomez tickets is likely due to the amount of airplay her latest single off her new album  “Come and Get it” is getting.  Popular Selena Gomez shows include San Antonio, Boston and Toronto.

4.  Manchester City – Chelsea FC

Yankee Stadium will play host to two of Europe’s most popular soccer clubs this summer.  Manchester City will be taking on Chelsea FC in an international friendly on Saturday May 25th in the Bronx.  Tickets are seemingly in big demand for this Man City – Chelsea FC matchup!

5.  Michael Buble

Crooner Michael Buble recently announced plans to tour this summer and fall much to the delight of his fans.  Buble will kick off the U.S. leg of his tour with a show in Chicago and will visit other popular cities like Philadelphia, Tampa Bay and Duluth (GA).

6.  Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies are up 3-1 against the defending NBA Western Conference Champion OKC Thunder.  As such many experts are picking the Grizz to represent the West in the NBA Finals where they would likely matchup against the Miami Heat.

7.  Jimmy Buffett

Nothing says summer like Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band.  JB tickets for shows in East Troy Wisconsin (Alpine Valley), Chicago Illinois (Northerly Island) and Detroit Michigan (Comerica Park) are particularily hot right now.

8.  Detroit Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings made it through to the 2nd round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs and will face the heated rival Chicago Blackhawks.  Game 1 takes place tonight in Chicago, with Game 2 on Saturday 5/18.  The Series will head to Detroit for Game 3 on Wednesday 5/22.

9.  Darius Rucker

Most people know Darius Rucker as the infamous “Hootie” of Hootie and the Blowfish.  However, Darius has reinvented himself as a country music star.  His latest hit song “Wagon Wheel” is getting a ton of airplay.  Popular stops on his summer tour include Bethlehem PA, Greensboro NC and Savannah GA.

10.  Darren Criss

The darling of the Tickifieds Top 10 is starting to slide and is just barely hanging on at #10 this week.  Popular Darren Criss concerts this week include Cleveland, Toronto and Minneapolis.

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.

2012 NBA Playoffs Bracket Picture

2012 NBA Playoff MatchupsThe conclusion to the strike-shortened 2012 NBA basketball season is about to come to an end and that means it’s playoff time.  With just a handful of regular season games left, the playoff picture in both the Eastern and Western Conferences is becoming much more clear.

In the NBA East, the Chicago Bulls have just about wrapped up the #1 seed after beating the defending champion Dallas Mavericks last night.  The Miami Heat, who lost to the Washington Wizards without Lebron James, Dewayne Wade, and Chris Bosh last night will end up with the #2 seed.  The #3 seed will go to the surprising Indiana Pacers, while the Boston Celtics will get the #4 seed as the Atlantic Division champion.  The Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, New York Knicks, and Philadelphia 76ers also will be post-season participants.  If the season were to end today, here are what the match-ups would be in the Eastern Conference:

  • #1 Chicago Bulls vs #8 Philadelphia 76ers
  • #2 Miami Heat vs #7 New York Knicks
  • #3 Indiana Pacers vs #6 Orlando Magic
  • #4 Boston Celtics vs #5 Atlanta Hawks

In the NBA West, the San Antonio Spurs have a 1/2 game lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder for the top seed.  The Thunder trail by 1 game in the loss column but can catch the Spurs should they lose any of their remaining 4 games- the Thunder have 3 games left. The LA Lakers and LA Clippers are also still fighting it out for the #3 and #4 seeds.  Currently, the Lakers own a 1/2 game lead but both teams are tied with 24 losses.  The Memphis Grizzlies, Denver Nuggets, and Dallas Mavericks have all but locked up wildcard spots but the Utah Jazz still have some work to do to secure the #8 seed.  The Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets are both just 1 game back.  While much can still changes, here is what the match-ups would look like in the West if the season ended today:

  • #1 San Antonio Spurs vs #8 Utah Jazz
  • #2 Oklahoma City Thunder vs #7 Dallas Mavericks
  • #3 LA Lakers vs #6 Denver Nuggets
  • #4 LA Clippers vs #5 Memphis Grizzlies
