As I noted last month, timing is everything. With a full month advantage this time around, the One Direction ticket sales tallied up quickly and nobody else even had a chance.
It is the first time since last September that 1D has held the #1 spot. Although that may seem strange at first, remember that this is the band that started selling tickets for 2013 before they even started touring in 2012. One Direction fans do not wait, and 2012 was one of those odd years where ticket sales were so early that it was a long time before they picked back up again. The greatest chunk of tickets usually sells on the onsale date, anyway, and this past December was no different.
Onsales are practically nil this week, compared to previous weeks, but there are still some to be mentioned. This week features Jason Aldean, the Harlem Globetrotters, San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, and Les Mis.
