Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – 1D Shines, Justin Bieber Falls

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!

Top Weekend Events 10/21 – 10/23

We’ve made it. We’re more than halfway through the week.  Yahoo!

This weekend’s top events list is, um…odd.  What an odd grouping of events.  Sure there’s still plenty of college football on the list, but some of the games are not expected to show up on the list.  For instance, what’s up with the New Mexico vs. Hawaii game?  I have to imagine it’s kind of a limited audience that would attend this game, no?  Perhaps fans are just eagerly waiting to see if their place-kick block issues will be resolved?

For your obvious games to make the list, clearly the Notre Dame vs. USC game will have a big draw.  Both teams recently had blowout wins (Notre Dame over Air Force and USC over Cal) and are looking to dominate each other. 

And, have you realized the Texas A&M has shown up on the top weekend events list for the past 3 weeks?  Those Texans love their football.  As do the Okies.

For your non-football events, this weekend, the Talladega Speedway will be busy with the Sprint Cup Series.  The AMP Energy 500 (aka Good Sam Club 500) is one of four races that are currently run with restrictor plates. And the Coca-Cola 250 has been an exciting event held since 2006.  It was first held as the John Deere 250.

Sir Elton John leads the top weekend events list with his Vegas show.   John began his new show “The Million Dollar Piano” in Las Vegas in September at Caesars Palace, where he will perform at for the next 3 years.    Just recently, he performed his 3000th concert.  Wow! In his four-decade long career, he has sold more than 250 million records, earning him the honor of being one of the most successful artists of all time.

And, if you weren’t aware, Yo Gabba Gabba! is a kids show currently on Nick Jr.  Interesting point, Yo Gabba Gabba! was not invented by studio execs, but by two SoCal dads with no TV experience.   It is now a HUGE deal with the 2-4 year old sect.
