NYE and NFL on the Rise – Tickifieds Top 10

Green Bay Packers Tickets

The Green Bay Packers surge to #3 this week following their big win over the Chicago Bears. The NFC North Champs are once again headed to the playoffs.

Although we saw little movement atop this week’s Top 10 most searched for tickets at Tickifieds.com, several events and performers made their first appearance.  Making the largest jump this week is the Green Bay Packers.  Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and the Packers are fresh off clinching the NFC North and are looking towards the playoffs yet again.  Another NFL team making waves are the Washington Redskins. The Skins are currently in a 3 way battle for control of the NFC East.  If the Redskins can hold off the Dallas Cowboys and NY Giants, they would make the playoff for the first time in 5 years!

Other events to note are 3 New Year’s eve comedy and concerts that came in at a tie for the #10 spot on this week’s list.  Once Christmas is officially over, expect New Year’s related events to surge.

1.  One Direction

One Direction is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down as they maintain a comfortable lead over the competition.  1D will be appearing on the XFactor finale tonight so we should see another spike in 1 Direction traffic as parents scamble for last minute Christmas gifts.  Don’t forget, Tickifieds will also be giving away tickets to see One Direction see be sure to register for the ticket giveaway.  For all the details check out:  http://blog.tickifieds.com/win-one-direction-tickets-from-tickifieds-com/

2. Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift continues to maintain her position just behind the champs One Direction.  Perhaps Swift is eyeing the top spot with the recent news she is dating 1D heart-throb Harry Styles.

3. Green Bay Packers

After a big win over the rival Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packer fans are hoarding tickets for the final game of the season (vs the Titans) as well as they playoffs.

4. Brrr! Music Festival

With a lineup that includes Moby, Miss Kittin, Magda, Deniz Koyu, Deniz Kurtel, Chus & Ceballos, Dubfire and Justin Martin , it’s no wonder there is heavy interest in the Brrr Music Fest.  The 2013 version of the festival will be held at Echo Beach in Toronto.

5.  Justin Bieber

Is Bieber Fever starting to cool off?  It sure seems that way as JB slips to #5 this week despite the fact that many tickets have yet to go on sale to the public.  Is the 18 year old starting to get washed up?

6.  BCS Championship

The 2013 BCS Championship game is still drawing considerable interest as fans are still searching for the best deals.  Demand should remain strong through the new year.

7.  Capital One Bowl

The 2013 Capital One Bowl continues to well represent college football.  Fans for both the Georgia Bulldogs and Nebraska Cornhuskers travel well so it should be no surprise that this is one of the more popular bowl games.

8.  Washington Redskins

Robert Griffin III has led the Washington Redskins to a first place tie in the NFC East and has fans excited for the first time in years.  However, RG3 and the Skins are going to make the playoff they will have to beat the Dallas Cowboys in the final game of the season on December 30th, 2012.  This will be a huge game for ticket buyers!

9.  St. Louis Cardinals

It’s a little early to start thinking about baseball but Cardinal fans are an odd bunch.  What else is there to do in St. Louis?  Interest is particularly high for the 2013 Cardinals Season Ticket Holder Reception.

10.  10th Annual Greatest Night of Comedy Tickets

Chicago will be hosting a huge comedy event on New Year’s eve that will feature DeRay Davis, Aries Spears, Lil Duval and Jay Pharoah (of SNL fame) live at Arie Crown Theater.  The 10th Annual Greatest Night of Comedy is looking like it will be one of the hottest events this NYE.

10.  Widespread Panic NYE

Panic-heads are amped to ring in the new year with their favorite band, Widespread Panic.  this jam band with a huge following will be playing NYE at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC.

10.  Phish NYE

Phish, much like Widespread Panic, is a popular jam band picking up where the Grateful Dead left off.  Phish will be playing a series of shows at Madison Square Garden with the most popular being on New Year’s Eve.

Top Events this Weekend April 8 – 10

MLBHello Wednesday!  I’m thrilled to see you.

So, what’s going on in the ticketing world now that the 2011 Mens NCAA Basketball Tournament is over?  If you’re living under a rock, UConn swept the Bulldogs in a rather upsetting fashion.

But, the end of NCAA basketball means the start of baseball, the end of NBA basketball and the spring/summer concert season.  Friday seems to be particularly popular this weekend for events.

Of course opening days for baseball are hot commodities.  The first day of baseball to many people is like New Year’s Day.  Anything is possible.  A totally fresh start.   The White Sox are starting off with a slightly rocky start designated hitter Adam Dunn being taken to the hospital on Tuesday night.  He underwent an emergency appendectomy Tuesday night and will miss at least five games.  Apparently Dunn felt discomfort during Kansas City’s 7-6, 12-inning victory Tuesday.

Neighborly rivals, the Knicks vs. Nets face off on Friday night in New Jersey.  Honestly, this shouldn’t be too much of a game, but the two teams are close in distance.

As for your concert seen, notice the heavy guitar, jam-bandy type sound that is prevalent in the list below.  Kenny Chesney, Rush, Widespread Panic and Stevie Nicks all invoke feelings of summer and carefreeness.   Keep an eye open for festivals and tours such as Coachella and Bonnaroo.

Also, while tickets are usually fairly cheap for AMA Supercross events, do discount them as being unwanted tickets.  Motor bike racing has a surprisingly big following.

So get out there are sell some tickets!

1.)    Chicago White Sox Home Opener , US Cellular Field, Chicago, IL  – 04/08/2011

2.)    Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves – Home Opener – Turner Field, Atlanta, HA – 04/08/2011

3.)    2011 Masters Tickets, August, GA – 4/10/2011

4.)    New York Knicks vs. New Jersey Nets , Prudential  Center, Newark, NJ -04/08/2011

5.)    Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks – Heart and Soul Tour, United Center, Chicago, IL – 04/09/2011

6.)    Kenny Chesney, Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, CT – 04/09/2011

7.)    Chris Cornell, Klein Memorial Auditorium, Fairfield, CT – 04/08/2011

8.)    Widespread Panic, Asheville Civic Center, Asheville, NC – 04/08/2011

9.)    AMA Supercross, Edward Jones Dome, St. Louis, MO – 04/09/2011

10.)  Rush, Madison Square Garden, NY, NY – 04/10/2011

Romantic Valentine’s Day Performers

So, it’s Valentine’s Day.  Let’s celebrate the day with yet another list.  Who doesn’t love a good list?  My criteria for my lists are that they must be living AND performing now (hey, it’s my list, I can make whatever criteria I want).  I’m going to make two very distinctive lists.  The first list, being the top (in my opinion) romantic and heartwarming singers.  The other list, is for those of you celebrating “singles awareness day” and there for is hard, dark and heavy.  The lists are in no particular order.

 Top 10 romantic singers/performers  touring:

1.)    Celine Dion – Of course she’s on this list.  Every time you think about a large ship, you probably have “My Heart Will Go On” on repeat inside your head.  Luckily for everyone, she’s still on tour in Vegas.

2.)    Taylor Swift – So sure, sweet and good.  She’s every guys dream girl and every girl’s best friend.  She understands the female angst and sings all about it, but manages to make it sound sweet.

3.)    Bryan Adams – How many great love songs did this guy do?  His two most popular were probably “Have you Ever Really Loved a Woman” and “(Everything I do) I do it for you”.

4.)    Barry Manilow – Mr. Romantic songs himself!   With songs like “Mandy”, “Can’t Smile Without You”, and “Could it Be Magic?” he’s an obvious choice for this list.

5.)    Rod Stewart – With his career in its fifth decade, Mr. Stewart has been exceptionally popular with the ladies ever since.  Hehas sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the bestselling artists of all time.  He’s touring with another romantic artist, Ms. Stevie Nicks.

6.)    Enrique Iglesias- Yum.  Regardless of the fact that he makes good music or not, he is exceptionally attractive.  His latest album with his Latin styling is sure to woo the ladies once again.

7.)    Justin Bieber – Ah, the Bieb.  That hair!  That smile!  The ‘tweeners  just love him, and the rest of the world does too for that matter.

8.)    Harry Connick, Jr.  – He acts, he sings, he composes.  He has enough personality to fill an entire auditorium.  He makes the ladies swoon.  Gentlemen, you should take note of this man.

9.)    Rascal Flatts – Their country songs nearly all explode with love and affection for their family and friends.  You can’t listen to any of their songs and not have warm fuzzies.  They also Thave raised and donated millions of dollars to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.  How can you not love that?

10.) Rush – They’re just REALLY good.  I can’t think of one guy I know that doesn’t have a “man crush” on them.

 

 

Top 10 least romantic singers/performers touring:

1.)    Apocalyptica– Yea, heavy, rock grunge music doesn’t exactly convey that loving feeling.

2.)    Lil’ Wayne – Maybe it’s just me, but I find all his tattoos to be especially offputting.  Or maybe it’s the grill….

3.)    Kid Rock – Granted, he might be slowly turning the corner from his former darker, drug and booze filled rap days, but he’s still not universally appealing on a first date.

4.)    Lewis Black – I’m surprised that man hasn’t had a heart attack yet!  He is a ball of rage!  Avoid, avoid, avoid when you want a nice romantic evening.

5.)    Social Distortion – Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Social D, but punk and romance don’t go together unless you’re Avril Lavigne.

6.)    K$sha – Someone give that girl a bath!   Her club/techno music is not good for snuggling.

7.)    Widespread Panic –  Jam Band.  You’d sooner have an urge for some munchies before looking for love at one of WP’s shows.

8.)    Dispatch – Hard Rock =/= Romance.  Sorry, it’s true.

9.)    Barney Live In Concert - Birthday Bash! – Giant Purple Dinosaur with a Baby Voice.  Need I say more?

10.) Trey Anastasio from Phish. – Pleas see description for WP.

What are some of your favorite romantic or polar opposite of romantic musicians/peformers??
