Darren Who? – Tickifieds Top 10

Darren Criss

Darren Criss will be out on tour in 2013 much to the delight of his legions of fans.

Although One Direction is still the #1 most searched for ticket in the land that is, it was still and interesting week as a performer I never even heard of popped up at #2 on this weeks’ top 10.  That performer is none other than Darren Criss.  While I like to think I am pretty knowledgeable when it comes  popular musical acts, this one caught me completely off guard.  I had to actually ‘google’ Mr. Criss to figure out who the heck he is.

It turns out, Darren Criss is a very talented fellow as he is an actor, singer, song writer and composer.  He is mostly know for his role as Blaine on the hit TV Series Glee but he also has had successful stints on How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and the movie  Girl Most Likely.

Criss’s first solo music tour, which is scheduled to visit 16 cities in the U.S. and Canada from May 29 – June 30, 2013, is set to include songs from Glee, StarKid, his Human EP, and new material from his upcoming solo album.

Phish on Tour Summer 2011

It’s official.  American Jam-Band, Phish will be on tour again in 2011.  After first announcing their reemergence two years ago, Phish has been going strong and will have another tour filled summer.

Trey Anastasio, Phish’s front man has been touring the country recently, selling out highly coveted shows.  Trey is credited with composing 152 of Phish’s orginal sounds, 140 of them as a solo credit.  He even placed 73 on the Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time in 2003.  The man is talented.  The other 3 band members of Phish include Mike Gordon, Jon Fishman and Page McConnell and they have performed together for over 20 years.   Their popularity as a live band is due to the fact that each of their concerts is original in terms of the songs that they perform, order they appear in and the manner in which they are played.  A Phish groupie could never be bored with their performances. 

Phish has most often been compared to the Grateful Dead, the pioneer example of a jam band.  Other similarities are drawn frequently between the Allman Brothers and Widespread Panic.  The fans of the bands often tour for weeks at a time, traveling from show to show.

Phish is so popular, the even have their own Ben and Jerry’s flavor, Phish Food!
