Denver Broncos Playoff Tickets 2014: Peyton Manning Leads the Charge

Peyton Manning Meme
The Denver Broncos have charged into the playoffs for the third consecutive season with the franchise’s 13th AFC West crown.They are the only team to clinch home field advantage in the divisional round thus far, and currently sit atop the conference for a first-round bye.

The Broncos have been making history all season, breaking a plethora of NFL all-time records with living-legend Peyton Manning at the helm week in and week out. The latest? Manning shattered Tom Brady’s single season 50-touchdown pass record during Denver’s rout of the Houston Texans in Week 16; and with their final game against the Oakland Raiders, Manning upper the tally to 55. But the astonishing play we’ve seen from Denver extends well beyond its center, as the Broncos added another page to the history books, being the first team in history to have five players who have racked up double-digit touchdown scores this season: Eric Decker, Wes Welker, Julius Thomas, Knowshon Moreno, Demaryius Thomas. Things are looking promising for the team with the best-ranked offense heading into their regular season finale—and with a long postseason run on the horizon, you can be a part of this team’s historic year with Denver Broncos playoff tickets!

We Crave This Kind of Buzz: Lorde Announces North American Tour

lorde-tickets“Royals” singer Lorde, announced a 16-date headlining tour in March 2014. The New Zealand native will begin the short trek March 3 in Austin and finish her first string of dates in Oakland March 26. The 17-year old will play two dates at New York’s Roseland Ballroom, the same City Lorde performed her first U.S. headlining show (Le Poisson Rouge).

Last September, Lorde’s manager Scott Machlachlan told Billboard that a first-quarter headlining trek in 2014 would lead directly into summer festival dates. Is a Coachella lineup announcement in Lorde’s future?

Fresh off four Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year, Lorde will have the opportunity to showcase her raw vocals in the U.S. We can expect high fashion, poised performances from the singer-songwriter who was praised by Billboard for her “unflappable” attitude and “well-defined stage presence.”

Which Rival Has Cheaper College Basketball Tickets?

ezgif-save

Many of College Basketball’s top rivalry games are played among Conference foes. Of course, there is the exception of Louisville-Kentucky, the most in-demand College hoops game in non-conference play, that features the preseason No. 1 and No. 3 teams in the country on December 28. The difference between college football rivalry games and College hoops is that you’ll often face your hated rival twice in a season – on the road and at home. While attending a heated rivalry game at home is a far better experience than on the road, is it worth five times the cost?

College Football Bowl Game Tickets, Prices, Trends

florida-state-semilones

UPDATE (12/19/13): The flaming hot ticket prices that blazed following Sunday’s College Bowl selection on December 8, have sizzled. Like last year, ticket prices for most bowl games are cheaper than they were ten days ago . With the exception of New Orleans Bowl tickets (68%), Las Vegas Bowl tickets (49%), Sugar Bowl tickets (8%), and Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl tickets (3%) every bowl game has depleted in price from 3% – 88%.

Just a few days ago when the price of Rose Bowl tickets spiked on the secondary market, it appeared that Pasadena’s Granddaddy of Them All might surpass the price of BCS Championship tickets for the first time in history. While this may still be the trend, both bowl games saw a steep decline at 41% (BCS) and 30% (Rose) since the selection show after peaking at the end of last week. Last year at this time, Rose Bowl tickets averaged $270, down 38% since bowl game selections. BCS Championship tickets averaged $2,461, down 20%.

T-minus 2 days until College Bowl season kicks off! Perhaps the folks that are benefiting most from their ticket purchases are the renegades of the group, the so-called unconventional rebels who wait until the last-minute. Reasons for the drop in price? Typically demand for College Bowl Game tickets is highest the days immediately following the announcement, especially for teams who need to make travel plans. The top three most expensive bowl games remain: BCS Championship, Rose Bowl, and Sugar Bowl (in that order).

Is Kobe Bryant’s Potential Return Sunday Affecting Price of Los Angeles Lakers Tickets?

kobe-bryant-return

Whether Kobe Bryant returns to the court Sunday or sometime thereafter, Laker ticket prices on the secondary market indicate that fans are anxiously awaiting their shooting guard’s comeback. Laker fans aren’t the only ones looking forward to Kobe’s return. The injury plagued Lakers roster is in need of any form of backcourt depth – Steve Nash (back nerve damage), Jordan Farmar (torn hamstring), and Steve Blake (hyper-extended elbow) are out – and D’Antoni says their 15-time All-Star may even play some time at the point. Despite all the missing pieces to LA’s lineup, the price of Los Angeles Lakers tickets for many December home games continue to rise. In a star driven league where the best players (like Bryant) drive a team’s attractiveness, their injuries and “returns” greatly affect demand for tickets even if other factors that typically drive demand up are non-existent (i.e. top product on the floor).

Following the Black Mamba’s season ending injury on April 12, potential NBA Playoffs tickets to the first round series and semifinals dropped 18% and 15% respectively at Staples Center. Wednesday evening, Bryant ruled himself out of Friday’s game on the road against Sacramento, but left the possibility open for Sunday’s home game against the Raptors. What Lakers’ fan wants to miss the highly anticipated return to the Staples Center? They’re taking their chances and grabbing their tickets because the possibility of Kobe Bryant playing for the first time since his Achilles injury is looking more and more likely. Ticket prices to the Lakers vs. Raptors game are up 22% since November 15, the day before Kobe practiced for the first time and participated in on-court drills with his teammates.

ONE BIG TOUR

Two days before Thanksgiving, the planet’s biggest boy band made a huge announcement on Good Morning America, setting twitter ablaze and offering U.S. fans something to be most grateful for. The lads who make up global phenomenon, One Direction, revealed 2014 North American dates for their first (and surely not their last) worldwide stadium tour, dubbed “Where We Are.”

Directioners across the country are sure to bottleneck ticketing sites and thrash at their keyboards to ensure a seat for next year, after their last domestic tour sold out, in entirety, within ten minutes. Best mates Harry, Niall, Zayn, Liam and Louis’ on-stage charms have been making girls squeak and squeal since the boys blew up, so accompanying parentals: have earplugs at the ready because audiences are bound to break decibel records and give Bieber fans a run for their money when these cheeky Brits invade for their biggest tour yet.
