1 Direction Slides to #2 – Tickifieds Top 10

Pearl Jam 2013

Trending: Pearl Jam’s concert at Wrigley Field on July 19th, 2013 is one of the hottest tickets at Tickifieds.com.

It’s been a while since our last post and a lot has happen since then within the event ticket industry.  Perhaps most notable is the fact that we have a new top event here at the Tickifieds Top 10.  Surprise, surprise….it’s Super Bowl XLVII.  Between all the parties, hotel rooms, vip packages and actual game tickets, the Super Bowl has been responsible for a considerable amount of traffic since the participants were reveled.

Despite all of the hype surrounding the Super Bowl, it has also been a strong week for other sports events.  In particular, college basketball conference tournaments.  As Marsh Madness approaches expect heavy interest in college basketball. The Rodeos also made a strong showing – see the list below for more details.

Top Events Week 5, 2013

1.  Super Bowl XLVII

It’s not much of a surprise that the most watched sports event in the world comes in at #1 this week.  Tonight the Frank Gore and San Francisco 49ers will take on Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.

2.  One Direction

After weeks and weeks of being #1, 1D has finally dropped back to the pack.  Although One Direction events are still getting plenty of traffic, their grip atop our rankings is starting to slip.

3. Dixie National Rodeo

Although the biggest events happen in Texas, rodeo and country music fans will be flocking to Mississippi next week for the 2013 Dixie National Rodeo.  Playing this year will be Easton Corbin, Joe Nichols, Dustin Lynch, Loretta Lynn, Justin Moore, Kip Moore, and Gloriana!  The fun begins 2/7 and continues through 2/13/2013.

4. PAC 12 Basketball Tournament

This years PAC 12 Basketball Tournament will be hosted at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.  What better excuse to hit Sin City than to take in college hoops at it’s finest.  The tournament begins on 3/13 and concludes on 3/16 with the championship game.  The Arizona Wildcats are the heavy favorites.

5. Big Ten Tournament

It’s been an incredible year for Big 10 basketball with Michigan, Indiana, Michigan State, and Ohio State all floating around the top 10.  This years festivities will take place at the United Center in Chicago from 3/14 to 3/17/2013.

6.  Mexico vs Peru

As we have mentioned on numerous occassions, international soccer matches hosted here in the US are really gaining in popularity.  This exhibition between Mexico and Peru will be played at Candlestick Park in San Francisco on 4/17/2013.

7.  Pearl Jam

One of the biggest concert announcements to happen in the new year was when Eddie Vedder confirmed rumors that Pearl Jam would be playing historic Wrigley Field in Chicago on July 19th, 2013.  Pearl Jam will also be playing a special show at the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario.

8. Houston Rodeo

The Houston Rodeo slipped a few spots this week but demand is still high for this annual event at Reliant Stadium.  The 2013 Houston Rodeo is sure to be special with an all star lineup that includes Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, Zac Brown, Bruno Mars, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, and so many more!

9. Big 12 Basketball Tournament

Although football is king in the Big 12, ticket demand for the 2013 basketball tournament remains strong.  Like most years, the Kansas Jayhawks are heavy favorites to win the conference tournament.

10.  San Antonio Rodeo

The first of the highly anticipated rodeos is about to kick off.  The 2013 San Antonio Rodeo starts on Thursday February 7th with a special concert by Clay Walker and runs through Saturday February 23rd, 2013.  Hot acts include Thompson Square, Lee Brice, OneRepublic, and Lady Antebellum.

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 Weekend Events July 15 – 17

Yay Wednesday!

Well, the top thing that stood out to me for this weekend is that those Ontario-ans certainly want to get out of the house this weekend.  Three Ontario events made the top events for this weekend, including the Jimmy Buffett show, Vans Warped Tour and the Taylor Swift show.  The Vans Warped Tour in Mississauga has an impressive lineup including 3oh!3, Anti-Flag, Bad Religion, Devil Wears Prada, Flogging Molly, Less Than Jake, Madina Lake, NOFX, A Day to Remember and MANY others.  This is sure to be a really fun concert experience.   Taylor Swift has recovered from her bronchitis last and resumes her Speak Now tour.  Taylor will be playing in Ontario on both Friday and Saturday.  Jimmy Buffett shows up again on this list, unsurprisingly.  His current song with the Zac Brown Band, Knee Deep, is a huge hit on the country music stations at the moment.

Sir Paul McCartney kicks off his five city tour this weekend in the Big Apple.  He plays both Friday and Saturday at Yankee Stadium then moves on to Detroit (Sunday, July 24), Montreal (Tuesday, July 26 and Wednesday July 27), Chicago (Sunday, July 31 and Monday, August 1) then concludes in Cincinnati on Thursday, August 4th.   The former Beatles band mate will be playing all his shows in ballparks.  Should be a great time!

Eddie Vedder returns to his roots and the home of grunge music this weekend for a Seattle show.  The lead singer of Pearl Jam has taken his solo tour on the road and is exceptionally popular.

Brad Paisley, NKOTB and O.A.R. come up again on the top weekend list as they are perpetually popular for summertime concerts.

For your sporting news, the LA Galaxy soccer team will host the Spanish soccer superstars the Real Madrid this weekend.  This is the first time since 2007 that the Galaxy will play at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, as part of the 2011 World Football Challenge.  Of note, Mr. Posh and all around hunk, David Beckham has played for both teams.  This is a rematch of last year’s very exciting match played at the Rose Bowl.
