Top Events Week 23 (5/28/2013 to 6/4/2013)

1. One Direction

T-minus 9 days until One Direction lands on U.S. soil to play the first of their sold out concerts.  First up is Sunrise Florida and the BB&T Center on 6/13/2013.

Jake Bugg has conquered the UK and will be looking to do the same here with his first US tour this summer and fall.

2.  Taylor Swift

T-Swift came up a bit short in her bid to unseat the reigning champion One Direction.   Tayor Swift will be out in Canada for the next couple of weeks before heading back to the state to resume her Red Tour.

3.  Hunter Hayes

For the second week in a row, Hunter Hayes comes in at #3. This time the buzz is even stronger as Mr. Hayes recently announced his fall “Let’s Be Crazy” tour dates.  Popular shows include 8/11 in Billings, 11/2 in Greensboro and 12/6 in Kansas City.

4.  Jake Bugg

Another youngster to make the Tickifieds Top 10 – Jake Bugg.  The 19 year old often compared to Bob Dylan has already had a pretty remarkable career in his native England, is just now getting regular airplay in the US.  Jake Bugg is certainly someone to watch!  Hot shows include 9/17 in New York, 9/21  in Chicago and 9/18 in Boston.

5.  Michael Buble

We had thought the surge on interest in Michael Buble concerts had came and passed.  However, this week Mr. Buble came in at a respectable #5.  Hot concerts right now include Buffalo NY 9/24, Philadelphia 9/21 and  Los Angeles 9/29.

6.  Dave Matthews Band

With most schools just about out for summer, many youngsters are looking to snag summer concert tickets.  Nothings says summer concerts quite like DMB.   Popular upcoming shows include 7/12 at Riverbend, 7/23 at the Wharf and 7/5 at Alpine Valley.

7.  The Lumineers

The Lumineers recently announced their 2013 Fall Tour with Nathaniel Rateliff & Dr. Dog.  The tour will kick off at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on 9/14 and will extend through October.  Other popular shows include 10/4 in St. Louis and 9/22 in Portland.

8.  Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks pulled off a stunning comeback against the Detroit Red Wings to advance to the NHL Eastern Conference Finals against the LA Kings.  The Hawks are up 2-0 in the series and are just 2 wins from getting back to the Stanley Cup finals.

9.  Mindless Behavior

Mindless Behavior is the latest in the seemingly long line of boy bands to make a splash on the Tickifieds Top 10.  Mindless Behavior will kick off their summer tour on 7/3 with a show at the Bob Hope Theater in Stockton CA.  Other popular shows include 7/9 in KC, 7/14 in Greensboro and 7/25 in Baltimore.

10.  Miami Heat

The Miami Heat squeaked out a series win over the Indiana Pacers and will face the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals.  Despite the fact that Heat look really vulnerable with the Big 3 reverting back to the Big 1, demand for Heat tickets are strong.  Probably because this may be about it for the current Heat bunch.

1D Back on Top – Tickifieds Top 10

Beyonce The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour

Beyonce surges this week to #2 on the Tickifieds Top 10 after announcing her plans to tour in 2013.

Although much of the country was buried in the snow this past week, the hint of spring is in the air as more artists announced plans for summer tours and festival lineups are starting to leak out.  However, this past week has been all about Beyonce as demand for tickets to her 2013 The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour is particularly strong.   Although they just missed list, a late surge by Pearl Jam is also of note.  Pearl Jam broke a box office record by being the fastest concert to sell out at Wrigley Field.  Considering Wrigley Field has hosted the likes of Paul McCartney, Jimmy Buffet, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Roger Waters, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band, Rascal Flatts, Elton John, Billy Joel and the Police that is pretty impressive.

So, without further delay, here are your top events on Tickifieds.com this week….
