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.

Emblem3 to Challenge 1D? – Tickifieds Top 10

Can Emblem3 take down One Direction? Chime in and let us know!

We’re back with the Tickifieds Top 10 after a bit of a break.  At lot has changed since our last post but one thing remains the same – One Direction tickets are still the most in demand ticket in North America.  However, we may have a new challenger on our hands in Emblem3.  If you are not a fan of the reality show the “X Factor” you may have no idea who they are.  However, if you are an event ticket marketer, it is time to start paying attention.  Like One Direction, they did not win X Factor but have developed a large following due to exposure from the show.  The group is comprised of 3 talented young men from California (Wes Stromberg, Keaton Stromberg, and Drew Chadwick).  Although the are looking to follow in the footsteps of One Direction, don’t call them a “Boy Band”.  These guys create original music and play their own instruments.  Their sound is a fusion of alternative rock, ska, reggae and even a little rap- reminds me a little of a young Sublime.

See Emblem3 doing their original song “Sunset Boulevard” during the X Factor auditions below.
