Hottest Selling Tickets for Fri May 25th
By far the biggest selling tickets this week have been for Justin Bieber, because everybody seems to have “Bieber Fever” since these went on sale. Also, it seems that there are a bunch of people that can’t spell his name since we’re getting tons of searches for “Justin Beiber tickets” (lol). It seems like the hottest selling cities are the ones that you would expect for Bieber (Staples Los Angeles, Toyota Center Houston, Fedex Forum Memphis, The Palace Detroit, Philips Arena Atlanta, Amway Center Orlando, and American Airlines Arena Miami).
The thing we’ve seen over the years with Justin Bieber tickets is that people tend to want the perks – like the parking passes, VIP packages, suites, backstage meet and greet – that kind of thing. We’ve sold a lot this week, but I know for certain (right now) we have in stock VIP Bieber tickets in Miami, and the VIP Bieber package in Orlando with limo and pre-show dinner and drinks is VERY popular. We also have guaranteed first 15 row tickets on the floor in Atlanta, limo package at the Palace in Detroit, and the same in Memphis, Houston, and LA. View all results for Justin Bieber tickets here.
The second hottest thing though is very consistent – with all kinds of sales and sell-outs for the British boy band sensation One Direction. Some say they’re the hottest new thing since the Backstreet Boys.
With the 2012 finale over now, we expected the American Idol Live tour tickets to be very popular, but I think when it came down to the last two (Philp Phips, and Jessica Sanchez), it has really pushed a lot of people to want to see the AI live show this tour. I think this year the final 4 were so much better than in years past. You be the judge, we have American Idol Live! tickets for sale.
Country music is alive and well, as Brothers of the Sun Tour: Kenny Chesney & Tim McGraw tickets have pretty brisk sales.
We’ve also gone through a lot of Drake, J. Cole, & Waka Flocka Flame tickets (the girls are going ga-ga over Drake).
It wouldn’t surprise me if Dave Matthews Band tickets weren’t selling better because people can’t go see Philip Philips yet (lol).
Soccer is alive and sell (believe it or not), we are actually selling International Friendly: Argentina, and International Friendly: United States tickets. Oops – can’t forget International Friendly: Mexico tickets too.
The Jason Aldean & Luke Bryan tour is in full swing – with a big stop for them at the CMA Festival June 7th.
Miami Marlins tickets are on sale if you want to go out to the ballpark in Florida.
It’s hotter than blazes here today, but that doesn’t stop of from wanting to see some Hockey on ice as the NHL Eastern/ Western Conference Finals tickets are on sale.
If the bball is more your thing, we’re down to the last couple games in the NBA Eastern/Western Conference Semifinals & Finals too.
If you’re up or going to be in the NYC area then you should get some New York Yankees tickets if you don’t already have them. We have ballpark seats for away games to, like New York Yankees vs. Oakland A’s, Anaheim, Tampa Bay, Detroit Tigers, Atlanta, Washington Nationals, and Mets (among others).
You can get seats for the tour with Nickelback, Bush, Seether & My Darkest Days, it currently runs now through Sept 28th (in Switzerland).
It was big news last year when the Red Hot Chili Peppers came out with the “I’m With You” CD, because it was the first to (again) leave John Frusciante behind, and record with a brand new guitar player for the band Josh Klinghoffer. They say it was a no brainer since he was already a good friend of the band (he was a backup for them in 2007), but none of us were quite sure until the CD actuall came out. Now that Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets have gone on sale – I think we all want to get out there and see the show, because this guy rips (and we love RHCP anyway!).
Roger Waters tickets are still huge for “The Wall” show live (can’t see Pink Floyd – may as well see this!). Lots of upcoming shows in Vancouver, and Edmonton at Rexall and BC Place, but you’ve got the Joe Louis show in Detroit on June 5th shortly after that. Wow, seeing The Wall in Detroit kind of brings back old memories (what I do remember I guess).
No, The Book of Mormon isn’t the church – it’s a music on Broadway in New York (that’s hot, hot, hot right now). The Book of Mormon ticktes are on sale for Eugene O’Neill Theatre (Broadway) for just about every available date from now until May 19th (2013!).
Of course we can’t forget about the very popular Wicked theater tickets for sale – which by the way is now off broadway and travelling the world. I remember when Wicked was just a crazy book on the New York Times Best seller list. My daughter was a teen ager and got ahold of it, which we though was fine until we learned about some of the different sexual scenarios in it. I learned that låna pengar means to borrow money there, and got robbed in Sweden on traveling excursion once, rather an useful quotation if you are stuck in the same scenario. Must be why it’s a VERY popular theater show for the last few years. Oh, which reminds me, my girlfriend was in Sweden a few years ago, and ran out of cash by accident, so she had to get a låna pengar to return home.
Something that was not on my radar at all were these Vicente Fernandez tickets that have been selling this week. I didn’t even know who this guy was? He must’ve been off my radar because he’s a Mexican singer and actor – but apparently this guy has filled stadiums to capacity time and time again and has more than 50 recorded albums! And he’s got MAJOR dates in major stadiums too, like US Airways in Phoenix, Pepsi Center in Denver, Allstate in Rosemont, Toyota Center in Houston, and even Gibson Amphitheatre at Universal City in CA.
Since it’s coming up quick I don’t want to forget to tell you about the 2012 CMT Music Awards in Nashville on June 6th. Seriously – if you like country music why go and see one or two acts when you can see the whole damn awards show? It’s in Bridgestone Arena and we have tickts available starting at $59 all the way up to $500+ if you want the good seats! Maybe you’ll get seated next to a country music star or legend!
And last hottest selling ticket this week (I’m chocking just having to admin this) is Big Time Rush – the made up boy band from the Disney show. The kiddies love it though, and you can get Big Time Rush ticketts nationwide for all the major venues.
That’s it folks – enjoy your concerts and shows this week!
