Pop Icons 1D, Swift, and Bieber Reign Supreme – Tickifieds Top 10

Justin Bieber 2013 Believe TourWith Christmas less than 2 weeks away, it is clear that pop concert tickets are one of the most coveted gifts on this years shopping lists.  This week One Direction remains in the top spot with both Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber gain significant ground.  Both artists have several concerts going on sale in the next few days that have raised the level of interest significantly.   Although, only 1 bowl game was able to crack the top 5 this week (Heart of Dallas Bowl), 6 of the top 10 were college sporting events.

Top 10 Weekly Event Ticket Searches (12/6 – 12/13/2012)

1.  One Direction

The former X-Factor stars are everywhere these days…from Pepsi commercials with Drew Brees to late night TV.  Tickets for One Direction‘s 2013 shows are in huge demand meaning there will be many disappointed tweeners come Christmas morning!

2.  Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift continues her strong showing improving 1 spot this week to land in at #2.  The pop-country sensation has several shows set to go on sale tomorrow (12/14/2012) including shows in Raleigh, Louisville, and Lexington.

3.  Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber surges this week after he announced the 2nd leg of his 2013 Believe Tour (not to mention his appearance on the Victoria Secret Fashion show).  Tickets begin to go on sale on Friday December 14th and fans are already scouting the market for tickets.  Much like 1D, VIP and meet and greet passes will be in big demand!

4.  Heart of Dallas Bowl

Not what you would expect as the highest ranked bowl game this week but Oklahoma State and Purdue are representing well on the ticket front for the Heart of Dallas Bowl.

5.  Louisville Basketball

The 6th ranked Louisville Cardinals has impressed so far this year despite losing earlier in the year to the #2 Duke Blue Devils.  They have big games against Memphis (12/14/2012) and Kentucky (12/29/2012) coming up that are popular at the moment.

6.  BCS Championship

Not surprising…the biggest game in college football once again makes the list.  The 2013 BCS Championship should be a huge seller with tickets selling at record prices.  Both Notre Dame and Alabama have tons of fans willing to travel and shell out big bucks to see history being made.

7.  Rose Bowl

The Rose Bowl is always one of the most popular events every year.  With the Stanford Cardinal set to take on the Wisconsin Badgers you can expect more of the same for this annual New Year’s Day tradition!

8.  Sun Bowl

Another college football game garnering attention this week is the Sun Bowl.  This year’s edition will feature the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets of the ACC vs USC Trojans of the PAC 12.

9.  Fleetwood Mac

The legendary rockers Fleetwood Mac recently announced they will be touring in 2013.  Ticket interest is already high with shows in San Jose, Washington, Boston and Atlanta seemingly on the Christmas list for many.

10.  Cotton Bowl Classic

While they no longer play the game at the actual stadium of the same name, the 2012 Cotton Bowl Classic should be a classic indeed.  The Cotton Bowl will include the Texas A&M Aggies and the Oklahoma Sooners and will be played at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

1D Holds off Surging College Bowl Games – Tickifieds Top 10

texas A&M vs OklahomaThis week, seven out of the 10 most searched for tickets on ended up being college football bowl games.   You can’t say we didn’t warn you!  As we mentioned in last week’s post, each year we typically see a huge surge in interest for college football bowl games immediately following ‘Selection Sunday’.  This year proved to be no different as interested in bowl games was both deep and widespread.

However, even the strength of college football was not enough to knock One Direction out of the top spot.  Taylor Swift held her own as well dropping just 1 spot this week.  Check out the full list below to see how this week’s top 10 turned out.

Top 10 Weekly Event Ticket Searches (11/30 – 12/5/2012)

1.  One Direction

What else is there to say about 1 Direction?  Maybe if we stop talking about 1D they will just go away…

2.  Cotton Bowl

A bit of a surprise here as the most popular college football bowl isn’t even a BCS game.  Nonetheless, the Cotton Bowl is getting a lot of attention as rivals Texas A&M and Oklahoma will meet.  It doesn’t get much better than this!

3.  Taylor Swift

Demand for Taylor Swift concert tickets remains strong heading into holiday season.  On sales for her 2013 Red Tour continue this week with shows in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Winnipeg, and Nashville officially being released to the public.

4.  BCS Championship

No surprise here as fan favorite Notre Dame will be looking for their first National Championship in nearly 25 years  against an Alabama Crimson Tide squad looking for their 3rd in 4 years.  Ticket demand is extremely high for these two storied football programs.

5.  Merry Meltdown

Fans of alternative rock are excited for the 2012 Merry Meltdown.  The event is scheduled for 12/16/2012 at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, CA and will feature P.O.D., Switchfoot & Anberlin.

6.  Rose Bowl

It doesn’t matter who plays in the Rose Bowl, fans will always be lining up for tickets .  This year the Stanford Cardinals will face the Wisconsin Badgers

7.  Fiesta Bowl

Of all the BCS Bowl games the Fiesta Bowl probably has the best matchup outside of the Championship game:  Oregon Ducks vs Kansas State Wildcats.  Had the season ended a little differently, this could have been the BCS Championship game matchup!

8.  Capital One Bowl

Wow…Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Georgia Bulldogs.  You’d think these two major football programs would be playing in a BCS game.  Nope…it’s the Captial One Bowl!

9.  Chick-fil-A Bowl

The Chick-Fil-A Bowl committee must be pleased to have landed the LSU Tigers and Clemson Tigers this year.  The Georgia Dome will certainly be rocking for this game!

10.  Outback Bowl

Last but not least, we have the Outback Bowl.  Interest should remain high for this game between 2 dominant football programs once thought to have a chance at a BCS game.

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.

2012-13 Bowl Game Schedule
