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.

Celtic FC in Philadelphia.  On Monday tickets to Seattle Sounders Fc Vs. Chelsea also goes on sale.

Top Weekend Events August 26 – 28

Happy Hump Day to you!

The trend for this weekend is Country Music!!  In particular interest are the Jason Aldean shows.  I can’t begin to say how many queries I’ve fielded about these two particular shows specifically.  This man’s shows are hot!  Fans are anxious to get their hands on tickets, ideally, lawn seats.

The American Idol shows also have a heavy fan following.  Past season’s winner country music singer, Scotty McCreary, headlines the show. His other top ten performers; Lauren Alaina, Haley Reinhart, James Durbin, Jacob Lusk, Casey Abrams, Stefano Langone, Paul McDonald, Pia Toscano, Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia.

You should be used to seeing Kenny Chesney, ZBB and Keith Urban on the list by now.  American fans want to soak up the last bits of summer while they are able.  Country music should continue to be popular into early fall.

The Licking River Festival is a weekend of Americana/roots music,  food and drinks out in Kentucky which is big with the camping crowd.  The Festival will feature Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band and 20 other performers.

Two MLS soccer games made the list this weekend.  The Colorado Rapids at the Chicago Fire’s home turf and the Sounders against the Crew.  Interesting point of interest; the Sounder’s majority owner is Hollywood producer Joe Roth, and its minority owners are Adrian Hanauer, Paul Allen and Drew Carey. Keep your eye on other MLS soccer games.  The MLS season goes through October and the games are usually well priced!
