The Week in TicketCity Search – February 12th

An odd combo at the top this week. The pinnacle of international sports competition at the highest levels… and the WWE. Suffice to say there is a market for both, and I’m not sure I can find fault with anyone who may consider a flying arm bar slightly more riveting entertainment than curling. Be that as it may, there was a pretty significant gap between 1 and 2. Concerts round out the Top 5, with the esteemed Mr. Beiber retaining the #3 spot, the Black Eyed Peas climbing a couple notches to #4 and Taylor Swift remaining at #5.

Michael Bublé heads up the lower half of the countdown. This crooner makes his debut on the countdown touring with is latest album, Crazy Love. Ordinarily I might poke a little fun at him, but apparently he was an uncredited extra on the X-Files at one point, so I’m giving him a pass. Either that, or Wikipedia is messing with me, a possibility one should never completely discount.

Rounding the remainder is John Mayer, who seems to have been in a really sharing mood recently. The Super Bowl managed to hang onto the countdown despite only being relevant for a short time. It seems to have gotten some help with people searching for next year’s game on Monday. Never too early to start your Super Bowl shopping. Finally, this weekend’s “big game”, the NBA All Star Game, squeezes in at #10.

2010 NBA All-Star Game this weekend

This weekend the NBA will host the 59th NBA All-Star Game in Dallas, Texas.  The All-Star Game has become a weekend full of activities that will play out across the Metroplex.  Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington will host the game on Sunday and the American Airlines Center in Dallas will host the Friday and Saturday night events.

The Dallas Morning News reports that over 90,000 tickets have been sold for the 2010 All-Star Game.  That figure already makes the 2010 NBA All-Star Game the all-time record holder for attendance at a basketball game, beating a 2003 college basketball game that was played at Ford Field in Detroit.

2010 NBA All-Star Weekend events (February 12th-14th):
FRIDAY:  All-Star Celebrity Game & Rookie vs Sophomores Game @ American Airlines Arena

SATURDAY: NBA All-Star Saturday Night @ American Airlines Arena (featuring: HORSE, Slam Dunk Contest & 3-point Shooting Contest)

SUNDAY: NBA-All Star Game @ Cowboys Stadium

This is only the 5th time the NBA has played in the All-Star Game in Texas, so expect it will be a huge production by the entire City of Dallas and surrounding area.  If you want to attend, it is not too late to still get tickets.  Buy 2010 NBA All-Star Game tickets at TicketCity or by calling 1.800.880.8886.
