Despite the fact that it’s been nearly a month since our last analysis of the most search for tickets, you really didn’t miss much. One Direction continues it’s dominance as the most search for performer…and it’s still not really even close. This marks the 15th consecutive week that 1D has dominated the search results as “Directioners” are still hungry for tickets. While 1D shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, a few challengers are starting to emerge- namely Lady Gaga and the iHeart Radio Music Festival. IHRMF will take place this weekend in Las Vegas and has an incredible lineup of musical talent scheduled to perform. Tickets sold out in minutes and music lovers across the country are dying to get their hands on tickets.
Top 10 Tickifieds Ticket Searches (September 10 – September 18, 2012)
1. One Direction
When will the One Direction mania subside? Hopefully soon…there is only so much you can say about this extremely popular boy band.
With a lineup that includes Rihanna, Usher, Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Green Day, Swedish House Mafia, No Doubt, Brad Paisley, Pitbull, Deadmau5, Miranda Lambert, Enrique Iglesias, Pink, Linkin Park, Jason Aldean, Calvin Harris, Shakira, and Mary J. Blige who wouldn’t want to go to the i Heart Radio Music Festival?
3. Lady Gaga
Just last week Lady Gaga announced her 2013 Born This Way Ball Tour. Desite Gaga’s immense popularity on the web, she still isn’t providing much competition to One Direction. Presale tickets just went on sale today…perhaps things will change when the public on sales begin.
4. LSU Football
With USC losing, Alabama and LSU are once again the top two teams in the nation. LSU has schedule SEC games against the Auburn Tigers, South Carolina Gamecocks, and Florida Gators before the big showdown with the Crimson Tide on November 3rd in Baton Rouge. Expect LSU ticket demand to stay strong!
After a big win over Detroit, the Chicago White Sox are looking like they will win the American League Central. Sox fans are starting to “Believe”!
6. WVU Football
The West Virginia Mountaineers are looking strong after blowing out two cupcakes in James Madison and Marshall. We will see if WVU can maintain their #8 ranking once Big 12 conference play begins.
7. Green Day
Billie Joe Armstrong and Green Day are back and will be hitting the road starting on September 28th to kick off their ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! Tour.
8. USC Football
Interest in USC football tapered off after a heartbreaking loss to Stanford pushed them out of BCS Championship contention. It looks like the PAC 12 may turn out to be better than expected.
Rihanna always seems to be in the news…some bad, some good. Rihanna just recently announced her 2013 Diamonds World Tour. Tickets are going on sale this week and searches have been strong.
10. Zac Brown Band
The Zac Brown Band has been a consistent heavy volume search term at Tickifieds. ZBB likely got a bit of a boost with their recently released ablum “Uncaged” and a stellar performance on the CMA Country Music Festival.
