One Direction

One Direction makes it 8 in a row atop the Tickifieds Top Performers list.

One Direction continues to build upon their record with 8 straight weeks atop the Tickifieds Top Events list.  The British boy band is absolutely destroying the competition as they occupy the 9 of the top 10 search terms this week and 34 of the top 40.  They only other term to sneak into the top 10 was Jason Aldean.   However, the good news is we finally have some new artists and sports teams on the list this week.  Following all the attention of the All Star Game, two MLB teams make the list in the Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Braves.  Football is also showing some signs of life as two popular Texas teams make their debut – the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns.  I know one thing, this blogger cannot wait for football to come…with One Direction shows scheduled out to 2013, football is our only hope in the efforts to crown a new champion.

Top 10 Tickifieds Ticket Searches (July 9 – July 15, 2012)

1. One Direction 

8 weeks in a row and Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam  Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson show no signs of letting go of their grip on teenage girls.

2.  Jason Aldean

Jason Aldean is back on the list and comes in at #2 this week.  The country music star will be hit the road hard in the coming week with shows in Wisconsin (Twin Lakes for Country Thunder and Eau Claire for Country Jam USA), Delaware, North Carolina (Charlotte and Raliegh), and New Jersey (Camden).

3.  Texas Longhorns

Football is BIG in Texas and the Longhorns are the state team of choice.  After a few down years many expect to see them contend for a Big 12 title this year with the Oklahoma Sooners.  Texas will look to build upon the #1 rushing attack and defense and improve upon their 8-5 year.

4.  Toby Keith

Toby Keith is having a big year following the release of his “Red Solo Cup” single.  Toby will be on tour throughout the summer and has shows in Iowa (Great Jones County Fair), Wisconsin (Country Thunder), Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York this July.

5.  Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox find themselves in unfamiliar territory – last place in the competitive AL East.  However, they are still within striking distance as they are .500 and are still in the chase for a wildcard spot.

6.  Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves are an impressive 10 games above .500 but trail the Washington Nationals by 3 games.  With an extra wildcard spot this year, the Braves are poised for post-season with a cast of new characters like Martin Prado, Jason Heyward, and Freddie Freeman.

Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches – Five in a Row for 1 D

One Direction TourOk, this is getting a bit ridiculous.  How many weeks in a row can One Direction absolutely dominate the search rankings?  Now that Justin Bieber has completely fallen off the map, there are no contenders in sight to knock 1D out of the top spot.  This week marks 5 in a row for the British boy band…is it time for college football yet?

A good sign that football is not too far away is the fact that WVU came in at #6 and the SF 49ers  came in at #8 on the list this week.  Other than those two sporting events, the results this week were dominated by music festival and country music.
1.  One Direction

I’m boycotting 1 Direction this week….

2. KattFest

The 2012 Katt Fest lineup includes Hinder, Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, P.O.D., Red, Crossfade, and Drive A….no wonder this event comes in at #2 this week.

3.  Aerosmith

Steven Tyler is back on the road with Aerosmith.  Their concert at Milwaukee Summerfest on July 7th is particularly popular this week.

4.  Sugarland

The Sugarland 2012 In Your Hands Tour is kicking strong despite falling 2 spots from last week.  Sugarland should be a mainstay on the list.

5.  Eric Church

Eric Church keeps the country theme this week going strong.  His  2012 The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour has been a huge success.

6.  West Virginia

Fans in Morgantown are excited about the WVU Football season.  What’s not to like about a top #10 team moving into the Big 12?

7.  Country Throwdown

With a lineup that includes Gary Allan, Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore, Josh Thompson, Eric Paslay, and Sunny Sweeney it no wonder Country Throwdown it generating quite a bit of interest.

8. San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers almost made it to the Super Bowl last year.  Fans are assuming they will take the next step forward and are securing their seats early to stave off inflated tickets prices.

9. Bunbury Music Festival

Festival season is certain upon us with the 2012 Bunbury Fest taking place on July 13th – July 15th.  The 2012 Lineup includes Weezer, Death Cab for Cutie, Jane’s Addiction, Airborne Toxic Event, Minus the Bear, OAR, and many more!
