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.

Top 10 Tickifieds Ticket Searches (July 16 – July 23, 2012)

1.  One Direction

Still on top for a record 9 straight weeks…

9.  Chicago Bears

Chicago Bears fans are extremely excited for the 2012-13 season after the acquisition of Brandon Marshall.  With an aging defense it might be 2012 or bust!

10.  Denver Broncos

Broncos fans are equally excited about their prospects in 2012 after signing Pro Bowl QB Peyton Manning.  The young Broncos surprised a lot of people last year and fans are excited to see how far a legitimate quarterback can carry the team.

Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – One Direction #1 Again

One Direction is #1July is notoriously one of the slowest months for event ticket sales.  The only major sports going on are regular season MLB Baseball and MLS soccer (if you consider that a major sport) games- neither of which are known to create heavy ticket demand.  Not surprisingly, this week the Tickifieds.com search results are dominated with a diverse group of music.  Although One Direction is still the clear #1 for the 6th week in a row, we have a nice mix of country, alternative, rock, and pop.

Top Events Week 7, 2012

Duke Basketball TicketsNow that the Superbowl is over (are you happy the Giants won??  Poor Tom Brady.  Thwarted by Eli Manning AGAIN) We’ve entered that time of year when there’s not really a ton going on in the world of sports.  Sure there’s basketball and hockey, but playoffs for the NBA and NHL are still months away and March Madness doesn’t start for another month.

Clearly the most exciting game on the horizon is the North Carolina vs. Duke basketball game, which always draws huge attention due to their fierce rivalry.

So, here’s your hodge podge top events for the upcoming week:

Top Events 2012 Week 7 (2/6/2012 to 2/13/2012)

1. North Carolina vs. Duke Basketball 2/08/2012 Chapel Hill, NC 

According to a 200 poll conducted by ESPN, this is considered to be the fiercest rivalry in all of sports.  That’s a pretty epic statement.  The intensity is mostly attributed to the two schools close proximity.    Once again the No.5 Duke and No.6 UNC are fighting for first place in the ACC.

2.) Rascal Flatts 2/11/2012 Verizon Arena, Little Rock, AR

This is their 2012 Winter Tour named “Thaw Out”.  This tour includes special guest Sara Evans and opener Hunter Hayes.  This summer Rascal Flatts will participates in the Summer American Band Tour with Little Big Town, Eli Young Band and Edens Edge.

3.) Rascal Flatts 2/10/2012 BJCC Arena Birmingham, AL

Rascal Flatts is huge in the South.  Birmingham is always a top destination for country music.

4.) Monster Jam 2/11/2012 Sun Life Stadium Miami, FL

For those unfamiliar, The tour begins in the late winter each year and ends in March with the World finals in Las Vegas every year.  For the past two years, Grave Digger and Maximum Destruction have dominated the event.

5.) AMA Supercross 2/11/2012 Qualcomm Stadium San Diego, CA

Tons of great seats are still available for the San Diego event.  A main difference between motocross and Supercross is that  supercross tracks are more technical, not as fast as motocross but have a much higher difficulty level, further adding to the injury risk factor and subsequent enthusiastic audience.
6.) Barry Manilow 2/11/2012 Radio City Music Hall New York City, NY

Mr. Manilow is taking to the road to promote his new album “Playlist: The Very Best of Barry Manilow”.  He is known for his lively and personal concert experience.

7.) George Strait, 2/10/2012 Gwinnett Center Duluth, GA

George is promoting his new album “Here for a Good Time.”   Really good tickets are still available for his Duluth show.

8.) Wilco 2/8/2012 Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Portland, OR

The Chicago alt rock band while not popular in the mainstream sense, certainly has a huge cult following.  Their most recent album, “The Whole Love”, was released on September 27th, 2011.

9.) Monster Jam 2/12/2012 Allstate Arena Rosemont, IL

At Monster jam shows, monster trucks face off in two different forms of competition – Racing and all the best of Freestyle.

10.) Sleeping Beauty 2/6/2012 McCallum Theatre Palm Desert, CA
