1D Fends off Taylor Swift and Hunter Hayes– Tickifieds Top 10

Top Events Week 23 (5/28/2013 to 6/4/2013)

1. One Direction

T-minus 9 days until One Direction lands on U.S. soil to play the first of their sold out concerts.  First up is Sunrise Florida and the BB&T Center on 6/13/2013.

Jake Bugg has conquered the UK and will be looking to do the same here with his first US tour this summer and fall.

2.  Taylor Swift

T-Swift came up a bit short in her bid to unseat the reigning champion One Direction.   Tayor Swift will be out in Canada for the next couple of weeks before heading back to the state to resume her Red Tour.

3.  Hunter Hayes

For the second week in a row, Hunter Hayes comes in at #3. This time the buzz is even stronger as Mr. Hayes recently announced his fall “Let’s Be Crazy” tour dates.  Popular shows include 8/11 in Billings, 11/2 in Greensboro and 12/6 in Kansas City.

4.  Jake Bugg

Another youngster to make the Tickifieds Top 10 – Jake Bugg.  The 19 year old often compared to Bob Dylan has already had a pretty remarkable career in his native England, is just now getting regular airplay in the US.  Jake Bugg is certainly someone to watch!  Hot shows include 9/17 in New York, 9/21  in Chicago and 9/18 in Boston.

5.  Michael Buble

We had thought the surge on interest in Michael Buble concerts had came and passed.  However, this week Mr. Buble came in at a respectable #5.  Hot concerts right now include Buffalo NY 9/24, Philadelphia 9/21 and  Los Angeles 9/29.

6.  Dave Matthews Band

With most schools just about out for summer, many youngsters are looking to snag summer concert tickets.  Nothings says summer concerts quite like DMB.   Popular upcoming shows include 7/12 at Riverbend, 7/23 at the Wharf and 7/5 at Alpine Valley.

7.  The Lumineers

The Lumineers recently announced their 2013 Fall Tour with Nathaniel Rateliff & Dr. Dog.  The tour will kick off at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on 9/14 and will extend through October.  Other popular shows include 10/4 in St. Louis and 9/22 in Portland.

8.  Chicago Blackhawks

The Blackhawks pulled off a stunning comeback against the Detroit Red Wings to advance to the NHL Eastern Conference Finals against the LA Kings.  The Hawks are up 2-0 in the series and are just 2 wins from getting back to the Stanley Cup finals.

9.  Mindless Behavior

Mindless Behavior is the latest in the seemingly long line of boy bands to make a splash on the Tickifieds Top 10.  Mindless Behavior will kick off their summer tour on 7/3 with a show at the Bob Hope Theater in Stockton CA.  Other popular shows include 7/9 in KC, 7/14 in Greensboro and 7/25 in Baltimore.

10.  Miami Heat

The Miami Heat squeaked out a series win over the Indiana Pacers and will face the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals.  Despite the fact that Heat look really vulnerable with the Big 3 reverting back to the Big 1, demand for Heat tickets are strong.  Probably because this may be about it for the current Heat bunch.

Let the Madness Begin – Tickifieds Top 10

2013 Big 10 Tournament

The Indiana Hoosiers will look to defend their Big 10 Championship with the tournament crown at the United Center in Chicago from 3/14 to 3/17/2013.

Well, it looks like Emblem3’s challenge to One Direction was a bit premature.  After surging last week to #2 in the Tickifieds Top 10, Emblem3 drops all the way down to #10.  Although interest in Emblem3 concert tickets has died down to some degree, keep in mind the California boys currently only have 6 shows on the schedule (Philadelphia, New York, New Jersey, Boston and 2 shows in Chicago).  If they end up adding more shows the could still put up a fight.  Until then, consider 1D the current kings.

Aside from the boy band drama, this week is dominated by college basketball.  Not only do we have NCAA Tournament games near the top, the college basketball tournament games are also drawing a lot of ticket interest.  In particular, the Big 10 Tournament is really raking in the visitors as all tournament games at the United Center in Chicago are sold out. Also making the list this week is the Big East, SEC and ACC Basketball Tournaments.

Top Events Week 9 (3/4/2013 to 3/11/2013)

1.  One Direction

One Direction is still king of event tickets but a brand new challenger has come to the forefront – Emblem3.  How much longer can ID continue to dominate the event ticket market?

2. Big 10 Basketball Tournament

The Big 10 is as strong as ever this year and fans are excited about this year’s tournament.  Games begin on Thursday with Session 1 and Session 2.  Session 1 will feature Illinois vs Minnesota and Michigan vs Penn State while Session 2 will feature Purdue vs Nebraska and Iowa vs Northwestern.  The #3 Indiana Hoosiers were the regular season champs and will look to win the tourney as well.

3.  NCAA Tournament

Although Selection Sunday will not take place until 3/17/2013, many fans are already scouting the secondary ticket market for deals on NCAA Tournament tickets.  Expect demand to sky rocket once the seeds are announced.

4.  ACC Basketball Tournament

The ACC might be a bit down this year but that will just add to the drama of the 2013 ACC Basketball Tournament.  The Miami Hurricanes nailed down the #1 seed, with Duke #2, North Carolina #3 and Virginia #4.  The Tourney will begin with Session 1 and Session 2 beginning on Thursday 3/14/2013

5.  Jimmy Buffett

Spring must be in the air as that could be the only explanation as to why the king of the summer outdoor concert makes the list in mid-March.  Popular shows thus far include 4/30 Lakewood AmphitheaterJones Beach 8/20 and 8/24 at Alpine Valley.

6.  Dave Matthews Band

Another band that is synonymous with outdoor venues in the summer, DMB comes in at #6 this week.  Popular 2013 Dave Matthews Band shows include 5/17 Woodlands Pavilion, Alpine Valley on 7/5 and 7/12 at Riverbend Amphitheater with OAR!

7.  Big East Basketball Tournament

The last year of the Big East as we know has fans eager to be there for the 2013 Tournament.  The tournament will be held at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday 3/12 with Session 1 (South Florida vs. Seton Hall and DePaul vs. Rutgers) and Session 2 (Cincinnati vs. Providence and Syracuase).

8.  SEC Basketball Tournament

The SEC is traditionally a football conference but the Kentucky Wildcats have always kept the conference in the National spotlight.  This year the Wildcats are rebuilding lost out to the Florida Gators for the conference regular season championship.  The 2013 SEC Tournament will begin on 3/13 and will continue through Sunday 3/17 in Nashville.

9.  Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

Rocker Tom Petty recently announced plans to tour the US  with the Heartbreakers following extended stints in Los Angeles and New York.  Popular shows include 6/20 in Pittsburgh, 6/28 in Milwaukee (Summerfest) and 6/29 at Target Field.

10.  Emblem3

Although the boys from Emblem3 dropped 8 spots to #10 this week, the addition of more shows could spark more interest down the line.   While who knows what the future holds, be sure to keep an eye on these guys! The 2013 Tour includes shows in Philadelphia, New York,  Freehold NJ, Boston, and two shows in Chicago.
