June has been BIG for TicketNetwork.com: The one millionth ticket was sold through our online marketplace this month! The landmark ticket was purchased by a customer in Ohio for an upcoming Jackson Browne concert.
One million tickets is a lot — a lot of live entertainment fans (like you!) searching for must-have tickets, and a lot of other people (from other fans to independent ticket brokers) looking to sell their extra or unwanted tickets.
TicketNetwork.com certainly has come a long way since its launch in 2007. For instance...
Did you know...?
The first ticket sold through TN.com was for a Stevie Wonder concert.
Traffic on TicketNetwork.com has grown more than 600% since 2007.
Our site now displays tickets for more than 75,000 events worldwide.
We've served more than 380,000 customers from 113 countries and territories.
As much as some things have changed, other things — such as each year's most in-demand tickets — have stayed fairly consistent. Since 2007, the top-selling performers on the TicketNetwork.com marketplace have been time-tested entertainment legends and the latest up-and-coming teen phenomenons.
Top-Selling Performers/Events on TicketNetwork.com
2007* — Celine Dion, Hannah Montana: Celine Dion continues to win over audiences with her soaring voice. But, wow, remember when Miley Cyrus and her fictional alter ego Hannah Montana were stirring up a tween frenzy?
2008 — Madonna, Jonas Brothers: The Material Girl is always a spectacle on the road. In fact, she's got another world tour going as we speak. Meanwhile, 2008 saw Jonas Brothers seated firmly atop their teen heartthrob thrones.
2009 — Super Bowl XLIII, Taylor Swift: The Super Bowl is the biggest championship event of the year for many sports fans. And in 2009, it was the biggest event of the year — period — among TicketNetwork.com customers. This year also marked the start of Taylor Swift's astronomic rise to fame.
2010 — Justin Bieber, Wicked: Just a year earlier, Justin Bieber began making a name for himself through viral YouTube videos and as an opener for Taylor Swift. (Yes! This actually happened!) But by 2010, he was a phenomenon in his own right, while Wicked stepped out as the driving force in live theater.
2011 — Wicked, Taylor Swift: Hey, these faces are familiar... Oh, right, because both acts had previous stints in the Top Two on TicketNetwork.com in previous years.
2012** — Wicked, Justin Bieber: I guess things don't change as much as we'd like to believe. Some acts just keep getting bigger and bigger...
* Q4 only.
** Through 6/14/12 only.
The TN Team Blog will continue its celebration of the great One Millionth Ticket Milestone later this week, as we say "THANK YOU!" to our loyal customers with a little giveaway.... Check back in the next day or two for full details on what you can win and how!
