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.

1D Maintains Momentum in 2013 – Tickifieds Top 10

OneDirection-2013-TourHappy New Year!  Although this time of year is typically one of the slowest in the event ticket industry, several events this week are keeping sales going relatively strong.  Top on the list this week are none other than 1 Direction and Taylor Swift.  This battle that surfaced last fall has continued into 2013 and is showing no signs of slowing down.

The first week of 2013 was also good for sports.  The NFL playoffs got underway this past weekend and fans are eager to buy up any tickets floating around in the secondary ticket market.  With college football ending tonight, fans are also interested in college basketball tickets.  High on the list include conference tournaments in addition to the 2013 Final Four.

Last and certainly not least, this week we also find the ever popular Houston Rodeo make the list for the first (but likely not the last) time.  With a powerhouse lineup of some of the most popular country and pop performers, this event will be HUGE.  If you haven’t been on top of this event from a marketing prospective you really need to jump on this now.

Here are the rest of this week’s top 10…
