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.

Also going on sale this weekend are tickets to the highly anticipated Peter Gabriel tour.  Mr. Gabriel’s Back To Front Tour will be limited to 13 cities and will begin with a show in Qubec at the Colisee Pepsi on September 16th and will conclude at the Santa Barbara Bowl on October 9th.

Other ticket sales expect to draw interest this weekend include the Carolina Panthers (2012/2013 Season), the Z107.9 Summer Jam, WWE (events in San Diego, Indianapolis, Dallas, and Pikeville), Monster Jam (Baltimore), and Real Madrid Vs. Celtic FC in Philadelphia.  On Monday tickets to Seattle Sounders Fc Vs. Chelsea also goes on sale.

Top Weekend Events 8/12-14

The weekend is almost here, hooray!  It’s felt like a long week already.

The top half of the list is comprised of nationally recognized top acts.  Kid Rock has been absent from the top weekend event list for a while, but he’s finally making a comeback with a hometown concert.  Katy Perry holds the second spot on the list with her Teenage Dream tour.  Her most recent hit songs “Firework” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” are still blazing on the airways and every talent show that’s on TV right now.  Seriously, her songs have been featured on America’s Got Talent, The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) and others all within the past few weeks.  Her song popularity rivals Lady Gaga.

Britney Spears’ Toronto show was pinged a number of times in this top weekend list.  This is a HOT concert.  Her Femme Fatale show is continuing to draw huge crowds.

Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band (ZBB) seem like they’re the official voices of summer with their great summer songs like “Knee Deep” and “Flip Flop Summer”.  They pretty much scream hanging out around a campfire, drinking beer and hanging out with your friends.

Some of the lesser known names to hit the list include country music artist Jamey Johnson.  He is also the supporting act for Kid Rock’s 2011 Born Free tour and accompanying Rock on a duet or more most of the time.  His most popular song “In Color” peaked at #9 on the Country Music Charts in 2009.   Alison Krauss is a blue-grass-country singer, songwriter and fiddler. She’s currently working on an album with Robert Plant.  She’s been in the music business a long time and has been collecting accolades ever since.

As proof of the increasing popularity of Major League Soccer in the United States, The Columbus Crew makes their first appearance on the list.  The Crew is one of ten charter clubs of MLS, having competed in the league since its inception in 1994.  They have won five major trophies; MLS Cup 2008, the 2004, 2008 and 2009 Supporters’ Shields, and the 2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup

Overall, this should be a very interesting weekend.  Enjoy!
