When we introduced our alerts system it was immediately very popular, with hundreds of sign-ups in the first week alone. In case you haven't heard of our alerts system, let me explain. If an artist, show, or team no longer have any tickets, a form appears where you can sign up to be sent an email the next time that performer or event has tickets. We also have alerts for specific events that no longer have tickets, but have not yet passed.

It turns out that when given the chance to find out when their favorite artists, shows, or sports will have tickets, people go for it. Since we introduced the system there have been almost 27,000 alert sign-ups for just over 2,800 different performers!

As you can probably tell from the title of this post, Justin Bieber is the performer with the most alert sign-ups. His lead is pretty overwhelming, too, with more than 21% of all sign-ups. Here is the Top 20:

Top 20 Performers With Alert Sign-ups

1. Justin Bieber
2. Miley Cyrus
3. Prince
4. Eminem
5. Nickelback
6. Mindless Behavior
7. Drake
8. Pink
9. Kevin Hart
10. Il Divo

11. The Rolling Stones
12. Winter Classic
13. Green Day
14. Beyonce
15. Lady Gaga
16. Bruce Springsteen
17. Cody Simpson
18. Garth Brooks
19. John Mayer
20. The Budweiser Fest

The only real surprise here was Mindless Behavior, as they have not yet gone on a solo tour. The band most recently opened for Janet Jackson on her Number Ones Tour and is currently on tour with five other groups. If they're in such a high position now, then I'm extremely interested to see how well they do when their first solo tour finally happens.

I'll keep an eye on the alerts and issue an update later this year.

Haha, I love this post! I will be the first to admit that yes, I HAVE set up alerts on multiple sites for Justin Bieber events. ;)
