A Look at "Frozen" Ticketing Trends

Visits to Disney on Ice pages

The new Disney on Ice production "Frozen" has everybody excited. Well, at the very least it has kids excited, and perhaps parents and "kids at heart" to less of an extent. But regardless of who exactly is looking forward to the ice show, people are looking for tickets. How many people? Well, that's where this story starts.

The graph at the top represents pageviews to the TicketNetwork.com collection of DoI pages from May 1 to June 3. I first came across it last week, when I wondered how many PVs those pages were getting in light of the May 20 sales date. At first I was sure something was wrong. Why were there so few PVs tracked before the 20th? After all, DoI isn't an unpopular series; in fact, tickets for the shows sell quite well at TN.com.

Then I discovered the reason for the seemingly odd reporting: There was over 9000% more PVs to those pages than is typical on a given day. I know that's a little vague, but we're talking in the 10s or thousands of visits PVs here compared to the hundreds they usually get. Since then the increased activity has kept up, albeit at a much lower number. So to say that fans of the movie are interested in seeing the ice show is a massive understatement.

So what other ticketing trends are we seeing? Here are a couple:

May's Top 10 Events

The enthusiasm for Disney's hit movie "Frozen" hasn't melted away just yet — not even close. After an ice show adaptation of the film was announced last month, we expected that excitement for the show would be sky high. The question was: To what degree?

Now we know. The May 20 sales date for the show helped propel "Frozen" straight to the top of TN.com's May Top 10 in a way that was almost as effortless as Elsa creating her ice castle. To put it in more glacial terms, on that day Frozen made up almost 40% of all tickets sold on TN.com. That's huge!

It's the kind of number we usually see for a concert onsale for a very popular artist or band (Jay-Z & Beyonce were in this territory). Other than some of the big Broadway productions like The Book of Mormon, or a circus show like Ringling, we don't typically see this kind of thing for theater. It just goes to show: create something catchy and viewers will latch on forever.

Check back tomorrow for more ticketing trends about Frozen, including information about its fortunes during today's individual ticket onsales day.

* Rankings and other data are as of 6/3/2014 10:00 a.m. EDT. Top 10 list is ranked based by the number of tickets sold on TicketNetwork.com.

Disney on Ice's "Frozen" Among Onsales This Week

Yep, it's time! Disney's hit movie is making its way to the ice rink and initial onsales for the show are coming up early next week. Tickets for over 270 shows in 28 cities across the United States will go up for grabs this coming Tuesday. The show's tour begins later this year when it is in Orlando, FL, from September 5 to 7.

The movie on which the ice show is based, itself based on the the 1844 Hans Christian Andersen classic "The Snow Queen," was a smash hit in theaters, taking in over $1 billion at the box office. The franchise's success has continued well outside the theater, with movie song "Let It Go" becoming a hit in its own right. Given the popularity of the movie and the song, I think it's safe to say that the ice show will be just as popular with fans.

Other major onsales this week include Pearl Jam, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, as well as home games for the Carolina Panthers and San Diego Chargers. You can see more highlighted onsales in the table to your right.

2014 Summer Concerts Guide

Do you know you want to see an artist or a band, or attend a festival this summer, but don't have a great idea who is performing over the next few months? Don't fret, it's happens to all of us, even me. Although I'm the concerts guy for TicketNetwork.com, there are so many acts going on tour that it can be hard to keep all the schedules in order.

Never fear, though, as we've got you covered with our Summer Concerts Guide! It has all the must-see acts for Summer 2014 in a number of genres including pop, rock, hip hop & R&B, country and Latin music. It also provides a brief list of upcoming music festivals (but if you know you want to see a festival, you can hop right on over to the music festival guide for a month-by-month schedule).

In addition to the upcoming concerts, the guide acts a resource for the summer concert season itself, providing links to posts right here at the TN Team Blog about tour announcements, festival survival guides, ticketing trends, and much more.

Check it out now and start planning your summer entertainment!
