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….

What a week for pop superstar Beyonce!  First she is the half-time act for Superbowl XLVII then she announces her 2013 The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.  So far her most popular shows appear to be Brooklyn, Houston, Chicago and Boston.

Top Weekend Events July 29 – 31st

Hello Wednesday!

First and foremost, did you notice all the country music events on this list?  Holy moly!  8/10 events on the list are for country, every kind of country music too.  Old country, new country, pop country, folk country, it’s all there!  Zac Brown Band makes another appearance on the list with a short absence.  ZBB will be performing at the Cheyenne Frontier Days, an annual event held since 1897.  CFD claims to be one of the largest outdoor rodeo and western celebrations in the world.  The infamous Dolly Parton makes her first appearance on the top weekend events list.  She is one of the most successful country artists, earning her the title of “The Queen of Country Music.”  She has been in a top-five country hit in each of the last five decades and alongside with Reba McEntire, one of the only two country artists has had No.1 singles in each of four consecutive decades.    These are two exceptionally talented ladies!

Mr. Tim McGraw shows up twice on this list.  He’s right up there with the ladies previously mentioned for his legacy.  He has had 11 consecutive albums to debut at the top position on the Billboard album charts and twenty one singles hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.  Mr. McGraw is also a very talented actor, having been in amazing movies like The Blind Side and Country Strong.

Of course, Sir Paul McCartney takes the top spot this weekend, just as I predicted last Wednesday.  This weekend he’s playing at the Cubs home turf of Wrigley Field.

And once again, the Manchester United soccer team is another hot, hot, hot draw for this weekend
