Top Events Week 5, 2012

Jeff Dunham Shows 2012Have any exciting plans this week?  If not, you might want to check your calender as we have another week filled with some top notch entertainment.  Although football  is on hiatus for a few weeks until Super Bowl XLVI takes place, there is still plenty of concert, theater, and sporting events to tickle just about anyone’s fancy.

Tops on the list this week is comedian Jeff Dunham’s show on Thursday night January 26th and the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Jeff Dunham is one of the highest grossing comedians currently performing- only Jerry Seinfeld has earned more since 2008.  Dunham is largely responsible for bringing back the art of ventriloquism (think fellow ventriloquist and Las Vegas staple Terry Fator).

The rest of the top 10 is filled with country music and sports which is no surprise to our regular readers.  So without further delay, here are the top 10 events this week!

Top Events 2012 Week 2 (1/23/2012 to 1/29/2012)

1.  Jeff Dunham 1/26/2012 New Orleans Arena, New Orleans, LA

Ventriloquism is alive and well thanks to funny man Jeff Dunham.  His show this week is New Orleans is one of the toughest tickets around!

2.  Bill Cosby 1/28/2012 Hult Center for the Performing Arts, Eugene, OR

Although Bill Cosby has been out of the spotlight for quite some time, he is still as popular as ever thanks to syndicated cable television.  Oregon is becoming quite the hub of comedy!

3.  Rascal Flatts 1/27/2012 Dunkin Donuts Center – Providence, RI

Country music icons Rascal Flatts are still selling plenty of tickets despite the fact that they are seemingly always on tour.  There most recent “Thaw out 2012″ is one of the hghest grossing of 2012 thus far.

4.  Miranda Lambert 1/27/2012 John Paul Jones Arena, Charlottesville, VA

Miranda Lambert has been a frequent visitor to the top events this week.  While I can’t say  I love listening to her music, I can say she is pleasing on the eyes.

5.  LSU vs Kentucky Basketball 1/29/2012 Baton Rougue, LA

The LSU Tigers will get a crack at the #1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats.  Although LSU is not particularly good this season sitting at 12-7, the Pete Maravich Assembly Center will be rocking for this SEC match-up.

6.  AMA Supercross 1/28/2012 Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, Oakland, CA

The AMA Supercross is certainly becoming more and more popular by the day and is certainly one of the most underrated events in the event ticket market.

7.  Brad Paisley 1/27/2012 Maverik Center, Salt Lake, UT

Country music legend Brad Paisley is kicking strong with his 2012 Camobunga tour.  His show in Salt Lake is generating quite a bit of buzz and we are seeing large volumes of tickets trading hands.

8.  Monster Jam 1/28/2012 Florida Citrus Bowl, Orlando, FL

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday….errr  Saturday, Saturday, Saturday…the Monster Truck Jam is coming to Orlando.

9.  Mexico Vs. Venezuela Soccer 1/25/2012 Reliant Stadium, Houston, TX

Although I think watching soccer is about as much fun as watching paint dry, it sure seems to finally be catching on in the U.S.  International soccer matches such as this have been selling out large venues like Reliant Stadium for the past few years.

10.  Duke vs Maryland Basketball 1/25/2012 Durham, NC

The Duke Blue Devil – Maryland Terp rivalry is alive and well.  Tickets to Duke games are always tough to get and extremely expensive.

Top Events Week 3, 2012

miranda lambert concert ticketsIt’s Monday and that means it’s time to break down what is happening in the event ticket industry this week. Now that the College football season is over we are starting to see NBA, NHL, NFL, college basketball and even a few concerts sneak into the top 10 events this week (January 10th through January 16th, 2012).  We have quite a surprise this week as Miranda Lambert’s sold out concert in LaCrosse Wisconsin comes in at #1.  This is the country music vixen’s first appearance in our top 10 list.  However, country music events are no stranger to the list as Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, and Toby Keith are frequently listed.

Top Events 2012 Week 2 (1/10/2012 to 1/16/2012)

1. Miranda Lambert LaCrosse, WI 1/13/2012

Miranda Lambert’s 2012 “On Fire” tour is certainly, well…. on fire.  Country music is big in the northwoods of Wisconsin and Miranda Lambert is about as big as a country music star as there is today.

2. Boston Bruins vs Winnipeg Jets 1/10/2012

The defending Stanley Cup champions are picking up where they left off last season.  Bostonians love their hockey so it’s no wonder this game comes in at #2.

3. Boston Celtics vs Chicago Bulls 1/13/2012

Two of the best teams in the NBA Eastern conference will meet Friday night.  After some incredible triple overtime playoff games in the past, these teams are known to get a little physical – remember Rajon Rondo’s hissy fits?

4.  New England Patriots vs Denver Broncos AFC Divisional Playoffs 1/14/2012

Tebow mania is in fully swing after the Broncos stunning victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.  This one has drama written all over it:  Tebow vs Brady (Round 2).

5.  Monster Jam Alamodome San Antonio, TX 1/15/2012

Who doesn’t love Monster Trucks?  Texans certainly do…

6. Rebelution Best Buy Theater in New York 1/13/2012

If you haven’t heard of Rebelution before your not alone.  However, this indie reggae band from Santa Monica is making waves with the college crowd and is certainly a band to watch in 2012.

7.  San Francisco 49ers vs New Orleans Saints NFC Divisional Playoffs 1/14/2012

The San Francisco 49ers had an impressive season and earn the #2 seed.  However, the New Orleans Saints are surging and are the odds-on favorite.  The 49ers haven’t been in the playoffs in a while so ticket demand is especially high.

8.  Celine Dion Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas, NV 1/15/2012

This one continues to be a mystery to me…I have no idea who would pay that much money to hear Celine Dion squeal.

9.  Rascal Flatts and Sara Evans Charleston, WV 1/12/2012

The Rascal Flatts are teaming up with Sara Evans for a sold out show in Charleston West Virginia.  Should be an incredible show!

10.  Duke Blue Devils vs Virginia Cavaliers Basketball Durham, NC 1/12/2012

The #8 ranked Duke Blue Devils have a big matchup against the #16 Virginia Cavaliers.  The Cavs are currently leading the ACC and Duke will need a big win.  Should be a rockin’ time at Cameron Indoor Stadium!
