July is notoriously one of the slowest months for event ticket sales. The only major sports going on are regular season MLB Baseball and MLS soccer (if you consider that a major sport) games- neither of which are known to create heavy ticket demand. Not surprisingly, this week the Tickifieds.com search results are dominated with a diverse group of music. Although One Direction is still the clear #1 for the 6th week in a row, we have a nice mix of country, alternative, rock, and pop.
