Laryngitis is gone and Adele just announced she’s headed back on tour! If you already have Adele tickets you should be in luck. Most shows will honor the tickets, but promoters are telling fans to double check especially if the new date meant a change in venue.
An extra bonus, Adele is not only making up the missed shows, but she’s added six new stops including for Las Vegas; Atlantic City; Durham, N.C.; Orlando; Miami; and The Woodlands, Texas. That means there are quite a few new Adele tickets available! Get them while you can.
Adele’s laryngitis hit in late May and caused her to postpone a date in Minneapolis. She tried to perform in Denver shortly after but then was forced to postpone the rest of the tour. She’s now well rested and ready to get back out there!
The English singer-songwriter has been quite a sensation the last few years and Adele tickets have been in huge demand. She currently reigns at #1 on the Billboard “Hot 100,” with “Rolling in the Deep.” In addition to other accolades, she was the first recipient of the BRIT Awards Critics’ Choice and won Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards.
Woo Hoo! More Ke$ha tickets are hitting the market April 8. That’s because the Sleazy Tour artist has just added 30 new dates!
Take it from the pop star herself: “My spring tour sold out so fast, which is amazing, but I want to get to party with errryone. If you are part of my family, my cult of rowdy misfits, come join us! I’m pulling out an ass-ton more glitter with blue lipstick to spare and I’m ready to party with all y’all all summer long. Sh–’s gonna be hot as a mofo … Miss this and you be missing the biggest dance party of the year!” Ready to get your Ke$ha tickets?
The new leg begins with a July 26 gig at the Delaware State Fair and wraps with a show in Phoenix at Comerica Theatre Sept. 20.
Ke$ha was one of the breakout stars of 2010. Her debut single, “Tik Tok,” became the fastest-selling download ever by a female artist. And she hasn’t stopped there. Every single Ke$ha has released has gone Top 10, including “Blah Blah Blah,” “Your Love is My Drug,” “Take It Off,” “We R Who We R” (which topped the charts) and “Blow.”
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s a fun video of the ever-outrageous Ke$ha jumping out of plane!
In Rolling Stone’s Music Preview: 10 Big Questions for 2011, they asked the question, “What Are the Biggest Tours of the Year? According to the magazine, the biggest tours (hint, the hottest tickets) will probably be:
Katy Perry tickets and Eminem tickets are some of your favorites so it’s not much of a surprise that these were the two biggest winners at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards.
Perry won best female artist and favorite web sensation while Eminem took home the hardware for best male artist and best hip hop artist. Em also scored best song and favorite music video for his hit, “Love The Way You Lie.”
Katy Perry and Eminem weren’t the only hot tickets to take home People’s Choice Awards. Taylor Swift won for favorite country artist and Usher for favorite R&B artist. We know you love your Taylor Swift tickets. The pop star heads back to the U.S. at the end of May and its clear you guys want to be in the audience!
Just like the name says, the People’s Choice Awards are determined solely by you – the viewing public. This is likely just the start of the accolades set to roll in for these stars in 2011. Eminem is planning a return to the big screen in the thriller “Random Acts of Violence,” while Katy Perry is currently making the rounds across Europe. And of course we’re anxiously awaiting news of Perry’s North American tour. As soon as we hear, we’ll let you know how you can get your hands on Katy Perry tickets. As if that’s not enough, Perry has a guest performance slated for one of our favorite shows, How I Met Your Mother, and is also lending her voice to Smurfette in the upcoming film The Smurfs. She may actually be able to win an EGOT this year (Tracy Morgan anyone!).
2010 was a great year for sports, music, and theater. Whether you were trying to catch a baseball game in the Bronx, a concert at Gillette Stadium, or a live show on Broadway, FanSnap had you covered the whole way. Our unique position as the leading ticket shopping-comparison site allows us to see what fans really want. So what was the hottest team, concert or show of 2010? We’ve put together a series of posts to let you know. We’ll start it off with the 10 most searched terms on FanSnap for the past year, overall.
2010 Overall Most Searched Tickets
New York Yankees
San Francisco Giants
Boston Red Sox
Los Angeles Lakers
Black Eyed Peas
If there was any doubt that the New York Yankees are one of the biggest names in all of sports, their comfortable #1 spot atop our Annual FanDemand rankings should dispel any nonbelievers. The Yankees are a perfect storm of popularity: they have some of the best current players in the game (Jeter, Rodriguez, Sabathia, Cano, to name a few), they play in the world’s biggest sports market, and they win a ton of ball games. Fans throughout the world simply love the Yankees, and it is no surprise to see them so high in our 2010 Most Searched Tickets list.
Notice that the top three of four spots are all occupied by baseball teams. The Yankees, Giants, and Red Sox are all seriously popular teams. But part of the MLB dominance may be due to the high volume of regular season baseball games (162). Simply, the more games, the more possibilities for fans to see their favorite team in the flesh, and the more searches for those tickets on our ticket database.
Justin Bieber definitely had a great year, and he is hands down the hottest artist of the year according to our search results. Hard to believe he is only sixteen, but expect Bieber to continue to dominate the American music scene.
The Black Eyed Peas had a monstrous year as well. They released a number of hits, and performed at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. They performed concerts all over the world, and avid Black Eyed Peas fans found the best tickets at FanSnap.
Country music is still prominent in the American music scene, as artist Taylor Swift is fifth in our Most Searched rankings.
We’ll be releasing more Top 10 of 2010 lists, like top sporting events and hottest tour stop of 2010. And as always, if you are in the market for tickets, look no further than FanSnap to get you the best possible tickets for the best possible value.
After the year she’s had, this makes complete sense. Lady Gaga ticket sales are through the roof. Her albums, “The Fame” and “The Fame Monster” have been huge and currently rank at No. 4 and 13, respectively, on the year-end Top Billboard 200 Albums tally. Four singles from those albums appear on the Hot 100 Songs roundup. Gaga wrapped up SIX Grammy nominations.
Let’s face it, she’s won just about every award out there.
Of course for Gaga its more than just the music. It’s about performance and influence. And she’s been a rockstar on those stages as well. She’s been included in Time magazine’s annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world as well as Forbes’ list of the 100 Most Powerful and Influential celebrities in the world. Forbes even placed her at number seven on their annual list of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.
Not to be outdone, two other divas are also being recognized by Billboard. Taylor Swift, last year’s Artist of the Year, is #2 for 2010 and Ke$ha was named Top New Artist! She really broke out this year with “TiK ToK” — a track that spent nine weeks at No. 1 on the weekly Hot 100 list.
As far as tickets, Lady Gaga tickets, Ke$ha tickets and Taylor Swift tickets have all be huge. Gaga is still over in Europe, but she’s headed back to the U.S. in February for a whole new set of dates. 2010 was an amazing year for Gaga, but we’re pretty certain the star has something special up her sleeve for 2011!
Lady Gaga’s been one of our favorites to write about. Check out some of our earlier coverage and keep it tuned right here for all the latest on Lady Gaga tickets.
This year, your favorites have been clear: Eminem tickets, Lady Gaga tickets, Justin Bieber tickets and Katy Perry tickets have definitely been on your hot list! And it looks like the Grammy committee agreed. Along with those three, other artists grabbing nominations include Arcade Fire, Lady Antebellum, Cee Lo, Jay-Z, Ray LaMontagne, Miranda Lambert and more. One big surprise? Even though Taylor Swift (tickets) received 8 nominations last year, she was left out this year. That’s okay, we still love you Taylor!
Eminem leads the group with TEN nominations. He had just a few performances this year, but you guys clearly loved him as Eminem tickets surely went fast.
Although these artists are having incredibly successful years, the Grammys still tend to overwhelm them. Justin Bieber appeared live on the show via satellite, unable to contain his excitement, “It feels amazing … I can’t believe I’m in this position! I don’t know what to say!”
Of course it will be a bit before we find out the winners. The Grammys won’t be handed out until February 13, 2011. What do you think? Did the Grammy committee get it right?
Stay tuned right here for all the latest on the Grammys and your favorite concert tickets .

I’ve always felt that the best live concert experiences tap into a deep need in all of us to feel a part of something … to belong.

Stop teasing us already! Rumors are swirling once again that Van Halen tickets may be on the market very soon!
Last month Live Nation Chairman Irving Azoff told analysts that he is “optimistic” about a Van Halen tour in 2011. And today Paste Magazine is reporting that the band is not only gearing up for a world tour in 2011, but also has plans to release a new album. Double yippee!
The currently-untitled album, will be the band’s first new material since 1998. According to Paste, Warner Bros is also planning on releasing some of Van Halen’s earlier works — including Van Halen II,Women and Children First and 1984 — on vinyl on Dec. 13.
While we’re still waiting on dates, Van Halen will reportedly trek through North America, Australia and Europe. The line-up will consist of David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and Wolfgang Van Halen (Eddie’s son).
The former Led Zeppelin rocker just announced he’s taking his Band of Joy on the road. That’s right…15 dates, starting in Asheville, NC and winding up in Nashville, TN.
Don’t miss this opportunity to catch Plant, along with Buddy Miller, Patty Griffin and Darrell Scott. The North Mississippi All-Stars are the opening act. Robert Plant tickets go on sale Saturday and trust us, some of these venues are fairly small so tickets will go fast!
Although Plant will always be known for his time with Led Zepplin, he’s recently shown a bit of an acoustic bluegrassy side that we love. In fact, his 2007 collaboration with Alison Krauss won the Grammy Award for album of the year. We’re betting you’ll find an nice mix of styles at his upcoming shows.

01/18 – Asheville, NC @ Thomas Wolfe Auditorium

Tomorrow marks the last date of Sarah McLachlan’s fall 2010 tour, but much to the surprise (and excitement) of fans, the singer just announced 23 additional dates – which means many, many more Sarah McLachlan tickets will soon be available! And we hear there are even more dates still to be announced!
So what’s on tap for the singer’s 2011 tour? The new stretch kicks off New Year’s Eve in Atlantic City and runs through March 24 in Montreal. Called “Sarah and Friends,” the tour features the award-winning singer and her friends Butterfly Boucher and Melissa McClelland in intimate settings. McLachlan will perform many of her hits while also answering questions from the audience.
Since these shows are in smaller venues, Sarah McLachlan tickets have been selling quickly. And fans haven’t been disappointed. Check out this review from last week’s Sarah and Friends show in Dallas. As the writer says, “…(the show) never really felt like a concert. Even the 20-minute intermission played like she was allowing her guests to mingle for a spell….The revered Canadian singer-songwriter was personable, engaging and in great voice during two-and-a-half hours of stage time.”
Get your body glitter ready…Ke$ha tickets go on sale November 19 for the pop star’s first-ever headlining tour. Love her or hate her, this “Tik Tok” party girl knows how to rile up an audience!
Ke$ha just announced the 2011 “Get $leazy” tour earlier today and already fans are buzzing. The tour kicks off February 15 in Portland, OR and continues through May 6, wrapping up in Los Angeles. But Ke$ha tickets aren’t all that’s up for grab for fans. Ke$ha’s new album “Cannibal”, drops November 22.
Ke$ha may be fairly new on the scene, but she’s already sold more than 2 million albums. Her single “Tik Tok” climbed to #1 in 11 countries and reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in early 2010. Her debut album “Animal”, essentially of the dance-pop genre, debuted at #1 in the U.S. Something tells us there’s a lot more to come from this diva.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the hottest selling band of them all? Well, if you guessed AC/DC tickets, you are correct! Yes, according to Pollstar, AC/DC has sold 1,820,962 tickets this year. Bon Jovi tickets come in second place, but are still nearly half a million behind. However, AC/DC is done for the year and Bon Jovi still has a few dates to go. Think the Jersey rockers can beat the Aussies? We’ll have to wait to find out.
John Mellencamp’s fall tour hasn’t even started and yet, additional dates for the spring have already been added. Fans hoping to score John Mellancamp tickets can grab them starting Oct. 15.
Mellencamp’s “No Better Than This” tour kicks off Oct. 29 in Bloomington, Indiana with most of the shows occurring at intimate, theater-sized venues.
Fans will be treated to some of his greatest hits as well as new material from his latest album, also titled, “No Better Than This.” The album was released in August and received widespread critical acclaim. It even held the top spot on the Americana Music Chart for five straight weeks. Of course Mellencamp is no stranger to this success. He’s sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and has been nominated for 13 Grammys.
Mellencamp has been a busy guy this year. He co-headlined 11 shows with Bob Dylan earlier this summer and of course hosted Farm Aid with Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews and Neil Young.
So are you planning to pick up John Mellancamp tickets? And more importantly, what are you looking forward to most – a little “Jack and Diane,” “Hurts So Good,” or perhaps “Pink Houses!” Or maybe some of his new hits??
Here is the first video for the title track from the “No Better Than This” album.

How far would you go for Van Halen tickets? Think on that for a moment, because you may just get your chance to prove it! Live Nation Chairman Irving Azoff told analysts earlier this week that he is “optimistic” about a Van Halen tour in 2011!
So there you have it. Yes it’s still just a rumor, but at least its coming from the big dog. Oh and did we mention Azoff doubles as Van Halen’s manager? Does this news make you “Jump!”
Van Halen’s last tour was a huge success grossing more than $93 million. The 2008 trek had 74+ stops and was the band’s first with David Lee Roth in more than 23 years. Can they repeat the same success in 2011? Keep it posted right here for the latest on Van Halen tickets.
Curious who else may be touring in 2011? Azoff also teased us with Fleetwood Mac, the cast of “Glee”, Avril Lavigne and Christina Aguilera.
Music, for me, starts and ends with Dave Matthews Band. My parents gave me “Crash” for my ninth birthday, and although I probably didn’t understand it at the time, this was the first album that I ever truly appreciated. It was also the album that sparked my love and passion for music. However obscure my musical tastes have been over the past twelve years, DMB continues to be the number one band I listen to.
I remember playing the drums as a kid, trying (but always failing) to match Carter Beauford’s sound. I was intrigued by the fact that this guy (as well as the rest of the band) almost NEVER plays the same thing twice. The first time I saw DMB live in 2004, Tim Reynolds jumped on stage and played a guitar solo with his teeth at the Journal Pavilion in Albuquerque, New Mexico. At another concert, after the release of “Stand Up” in 2005, the Dave faithful and I stuck it out through 50 mile an hour winds in the dusty New Mexican desert. I saw the band play again at the Pavilion in 2009, the spring after original band member Leroi Moore tragically died in an ATV accident and just before the release of “Big Whiskey and the Groo Grux King.” And although these shows and albums were all different in their own way, one common factor has stayed with the band throughout their history: they play great music, simply for the sake of playing great music.
To me, there is nothing better than a Dave Matthews Band concert. I have seen him a handful of times, and plan to see him again this summer when their summer concert tour hits Dave’s current home state of Washington (at the Gorge Amphitheater). So whether or not you are a long time fan like me, or just a music fan in general, be absolutely sure to check out Dave Matthews Band this summer.
For Dave Matthews Band tickets to all shows on his 2010 Summer Tour, Fansnap can help DMB fans locate the best possible tickets for the best possible value.

Jack Johnson’s music just feels like summer; mellow acoustic guitar strung around lyrics of banana pancakes and never-ending weekends. It is the epitome of “soft rock,” and his melodies have the amazing ability to make his audience feel as if they are back on the beaches of Johnson’s home, Hawaii. This week, Jack brings his summer concert tour to the New York with one show this Tuesday July 13th at PNC Bank Arts Center and the other on Wednesday July 14th at Madison Square Garden.

Bon Jovi tickets are the hottest sellers for the month of June according to Billboard. The magazine just announced that Bon Jovi’s Circle Tour topped their Hot Tours chart last month, based on the strong success from the European leg of their tour. Now the Jersey natives are headed back home, kicking off their North American portion tomorrow night at where else, the Meadowlands.
Bon Jovi tickets to Meadowlands shows have been in high demand. The band was the first to perform at the new venue earlier this year, rocking out for three straight nights in May in front of sold out. Now they are back for just one night.
