Final 4 and MLB Opening Day Draws Heavy Interest – Tickifieds Top 10

2013-final-four-logoIt should come as no surprise that this week we once again find the NCAA Tournament atop our Top 10 list of events.  The NCAA Tournament, and in particular the Final Four, is one of the most watched events in the country.  It’s been a pretty incredible tournament so far with plenty of upsets including the #9 seeded Wichita State Shockers advancing along with #4 seeds Michigan and Syracuse and the #1 overall seeded Louisville Cardinals.  The Georgia Dome will surely be rocking when the Final Four begins on Satruday (4/6/2013).

Other than the impressive numbers from the NCAA Tournament, notable inclusions on this week’s list are the multiple MLB teams.  With the 2013 MLB opening day today, interest in baseball tickets has certainly spiked.  Of the top 10 events this week, 5 are from the world of baseball.

Top Events Week 12 (3/25/2013 to 4/1/2013)

1.  NCAA Tournament Final Four

The NCAA Tournament Final Four field is set with top seeded Louisville joined by Wichita State Shockers (#9), Michigan Wolverines (#4)  and Syracuse Orange (#4).  Significant traffic is flowing in from fans looking for tickets to the semi-finals and championship game.  As such, full session passes are a popular item.

2.  One Direction

One Direction keeps chugging along as a major force in the event ticket industry. As soon as the NCAA Tournament is over, expect 1D to resume their reign as the top event at

3.  Chicago Cubs

The baseball season is underway and despite the fact that the Cubs are coming off a 100 loss season, fans are still looking to enjoy summertime fun at the “Friendly Confines” of Wrigley Field.

4.  John Mayer

John Mayer will be spending the summer alongside former American Idol winner Philip Phillips.  Ticket demand has been surprisingly strong especially for shows in Atlanta (Lakewood Amphitheater), Colorado (Red Rocks Amphitheater) and Milwaukee (SummerFest).

5.  New York Yankees

It could be a looooong year for Yankees fans as age and injuries are really starting to catch up to them.  If the Yankees can stay in the race for the AL East title at least fans know that ownership will continue to open up their wallets!

6.  Washington Nationals

After a disappointing conclusion to the 2012 season, Nationals fans are looking forward to a full year with pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg and young slugger Bryce Harper.  The future is very bright for this team!

7.  Pitbull and Kesha

Hip hop mogul Pitbull is teaming up with ke$ha on their 2013 Tour.  This party duo is sure to draw strong interest from their legions of dedicated fans- especially for those hard to get Meet and Greet Passes.  Popular shows thus far are Atlanta (Lakewood Amphitheater), Holmdel (PNC Bank Arts Center) and, surprisingly, Albuquerque (Hard Rock Pavilion).

8.  Kansas City Royals

A bit of surprise here but fans are excited about the KC Royals chances this year. While they may not have the talent of the Detroit Tigers, they Royals have quietly assembled themselves a nice team that should be in contention for at least a wildcard spot.

9.  Boston Red Sox

Much like the Yankees and Cubs,  Boston Red Sox fans aren’t overly optimistic about their chances this year but that doesn’t seem to stop them from going to games.

10.  Big Time Rush

Nickelodeon stars Big Time Rush (aka BTR) will be heading out on tour this summer with emerging pop star Victoria Justice on the 2013 “Summer Break Tour.”  The tour announcement came just a few short days ago so expect these guys to creep up the ranking next week.

This top 10 list is compiled from internal search data from and organic traffic from search engines.  Search terms are ranked by using a combination of both sources of search data.

Top February Events

It’s no secret that January and February are some of the slowest months for ticket sales.  During the fall and winter NFL Tickets and College football tickets sales surge but with both seasons over, there is a large void in the ticket market.  NBA, NHL, and NCAA (basketball) seasons are in full swing but demand for regular season tickets is generally low and the playoff and March Madness are still a long ways away.  This is also the time of year that many concert performers take a break and gear up for their summer tours.   Although this is the time of year that many of these highly anticipated tickets go on sale, conversion are usually greatest as the event date nears.  So with that in mind, what are the top upcoming events for February 2010?

2010 San Antonio Rodeo (February 4 th to February 20th) – ATT Center

The 2010 San Antonio Rodeo will feature some of the hottest pop and coutry artists performing live at the ATT Center in San Antonio.  The 2010 Lineup includes notable recording artists such as Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Selena Gomez, Foreigner, Rodney Atkins, Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Gary Allan, and many more.  Free Ticket Classifieds already has some great tickets available to many of these show in our Texas Concert Ticket Classifieds.

Super Bowl XLIV (February 7th, 2010) – Sun Life Stadium, Miami, Florida

What list of top events in February would be complete without the Super Bowl?  The Super Bowl is perhaps the biggest event in the world and these tickets are in high demand.  With the high demand comes a large tickets price – face value tickets start at $900+.  While Super Bowl tickets are not likely to sell at large volumes, the high point price makes selling Super Bowl tickets highly profitable.

NBA All Star Game (February 14, 2010) – Dallas Cowboys Stadium

Of all the major sports All Star events, the NBA version is perhaps the most in-demand and anticipated events.  This year the NBA All Star Game will be held at the new Dallas Cowboys Satdium and all 85,000+ tickets have already been sold.  The large amount of tickets available and large demand should mean that a large volume of tickets will be sold to the All Star game itself, as well as, the NBA All Star Rookie Challenge and NBA All Star Saturday events.  The NBA All Star Saturday will feature the Shooting Stars competition, the Skills Challenge, the Three-point shootout, and the Slam Dunk contest.

Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games (February 12 th to February 28th)

While Free Ticket Classifieds primarily features tickets from events in the United States, the 2010 Winter Games will be held just over the border in Vancouver Canada.  That means lots of people from the US will head north to see Olympians battle for the gold in many popular events.  Some of the most popular events include Mens Ice Hockey, Snowboarding, Skiing, and figure skating.  Also extremely popular are the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.  To Post or view Winter Games ads check out our Winter Games Ticket Classifieds.

John Mayer – Tour Begins February 4, 2010 in Sunrise Florida

John Mayer’s high anticipated tour will kickoff in early February as he travels through Florida, Tennessee, Michigan, Canada, and winds down the month with big stops in Washington DC, Philadelphia, and New York.  Look for John Mayer tickets to fly off the shelves as each date approaches throughout February.

Black Eyed Peas –  15 February show begining February 4, 2010

Like John Mayer, like Black Eyed Peas will kickoff their 2010 tour in February fresh off several Grammy Awards. Fergie and crew will begin the tour with a sold out show in Atlanta.  February will also feature shows in popular cities such as Miami, Tampa, Nashville, Columbus, Raleigh, Charlotte, Washington DC, New York, and Boston.  This tour should sell strong throughout the month.
