Top Tickets this weekAnother week has come and gone and One Direction is still the most in demand ticket according to our search analytics.  This marks the third week in a row for the boy band and they are showing no signs of slowing down.  We can only hope that some of the other events on this weeks’ top 10 can unseat 1D sometime soon.  We have some solid candidates this week as the NBA and NHL Finals had another strong showing.  International soccer again makes the list this time with Real Madrid taking the spot of Brazil.

Perhaps the most exciting trend we noticed this week was the appearance of our first college football team of the new season- Texas A&M.  Texas A&M is joining the SEC this season and is expected to make a great conference even better.  Here’s hoping college football will save this poor blogger from have to write yet another article mentioning One Direction!

Justin Bieber and Peter Gabriel Headline Ticket Sales This Weekend

Justin Bieber Believe Tour TicketsTicket industry experts are anticipating record ticket sales as several big acts will begin selling tickets this upcoming weekend.  Expected to dominate ticket sales this weekend is none other than pop sensation Justin Bieber.  As previously reported, the Biebs announced his 2012-2013 Believe Tour on the Ellen Degeneres show on May 23rd.  Presale tickets went on sale last weekend for his tour which will consist of 41 shows across the United States and Canada.  The tour will kickoff with a concert at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale Arizona on September 29th and will end with a show at the American Airlines Arean in Miami Florida on January 26th, 2013.  Tickets to his shows in Canada will go on sale to the public tomorrow June 1st with the remaining US tour dates going public on Saturday June 2nd.  We expect each of the 41 concert stops to sell out quickly.   This means that many fans who were unable to acquire tickets through Ticketmaster will be looking to the secondary ticket market to purchase tickets.  Indicative of this is the fact that Tickifieds.com already has over 186 ads for Justin Bieber including the highly coveted VIP Meet and Greet passes.

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.
