By Stacey Willets
This morning TicketNews.com released its exclusive weekly Top Ten Primary and Secondary Live Event Ticket Sellers Rankings, the greatest collection of top ticket sellers since last week’s Ticket Summit trade show. Here is a quick taste of where all the websites stand.
This week’s Primary Sellers list features the same sites in a slightly different order. The top four remain the same with Ticketmaster leading the pack, followed by Live Nation at two, Tickets.com at three, and TicketWeb at four. Telecharge moves up to the number five spot, bumping Etix.com down to number six. Tix maintains the number seven ranking. Groove Tickets and TicketsWest swap places to become eight and nine, respectively. UNLV Tickets rounds out the group at number ten.
CheapPricedTickets makes its first foray into the Top Ten Secondary Ticket Sellers, moving from the number twelve spot to number nine this week. The site joins the crème de le crème of the secondary market including number one ranked StubHub!, second-ranked TicketsNow, and third-ranked TicketLiquidator. Movement amongst the other major players puts TickCo Premium Seating at four this week, while GoTickets.com advances two positions to number five. ABC Tickets remains at number six. RazorGator and Tickets Plus each gain one spot, putting them at seven and eight. Online Seats replaces newcomer Event Tickets Center at number ten . . .
The triad of Overall Top Sellers changes this week. While Ticketmaster shows no signs of being dislodged from the number one spot anytime soon and StubHub! remains secure in the number two ranking, Live Nation is replaced by TicketsNow as this week’s number three seller. Live Nation drops one spot to number four, followed by Tickets.com and TicketLiquidator, which maintain their positions of five and six. TickCo Premium Seating advances one spot, as does ABC Tickets, putting them at the seven and eight rankings. GoTickets.com moves up two places from eleven to nine, and TicketWeb holds on to number ten.
