Big East ChampionshipIn our weekly monitoring of the top events at SelectATicket.com, the upcoming Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden has taken over first place for the past week.

Here is the full top 5 list covering the past seven days:

  1. Big East Tournament
  2. Billy Joel
  3. Wicked
  4. The Harlem Globetrotters
  5. New York Yankees

With more shows added to his monthly Madison Square Garden residency, Billy Joel continues to sell out MSG on a consistent basis. With an open-ended arrangement and every show having sold out so far, there seems to be no end in sight for Billy Joel’s run at Madison Square Garden!

Third place goes to Wicked, the Broadway musical. The story of the witches from the Wizard of Oz in their early days continues to be one of the most popular shows on Broadway since opening in October of 2003.

The annual tour by the Harlem Globetrotters is coming through and tickets are moving fast for that. Always a hit with fans both old and young, the Globetrotters put on an entertaining display of athletic, and comedic, talent like only they can do.

While winter is just underway, that also means that we are slowly getting closer to Spring Training and baseball season. Clearly some fans have that on their minds as New York Yankees tickets close out the top 5 list this week. Now is a great time to browse the Yankees’ schedule and pick up some tickets before the season comes along and demand for baseball tickets really heats up.

Slam Dunk ContestThe NBA All Star Game was the top event at SelectATicket.com last week. Coming up quickly on February 15 at Madison Square Garden, the NBA All Star Game continues to be a strong event year after year on SelectATicket.com.

Coming in second we see the Pinstripe Bowl between Penn State and Boston College. The cold weather bowl game at Yankee Stadium has been steadily gaining in popularity and this year is proving to be no different as the Nittany Lions and Screaming Eagles are set to battle each other on December 27th.

Here is the complete top 5 list from SelectATicket.com for the past week.

  1. NBA All Star Game
  2. Pinstripe Bowl: Penn St vs Boston College
  3. Fleetwood Mac
  4. Monster Jam
  5. CFP Semifinal Sugar Bowl: Alabama vs Ohio St

With Christie McVie back in the lineup, things are really falling into place for Fleetwood Mac on their current tour as they have recently added several more dates due to overwhelming demand by their fans. If you are a fan and have not seen them, this is the tour to see!

With 3 performances at the nearby Izod Center in January and one in June at MetLife Stadium, there should be no surprise that Monster Jam has made the top 5 list. The shows in January are quickly approaching and seeing the trucks inside at the Izod Center is a totally different experience than the larger show at MetLife Stadium, see them both for yourself as tickets remain available!

Lastly, we have the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Sugar Bowl between Alabama and Ohio State to complete the top 5. The winner of this game moves on to play the winner of the Rose Bowl for the national championship!

Earlier this month, Adidas (the NBA’s official on-court apparel supplier) unveiled uniform and apparel designs for the upcoming 2015 NBA All-Star Game. The uniforms pay homage to the game’s host city — New York City.

David Cho, who oversees the NBA partnership with Adidas said, “It’s simple and timeless. It’s a nod to the history, culture and style of New York City basketball.”The uniforms are relatively plain and have many changes from those of previous years.

Since the 1960s, the NBA has had the conference identifiers “East” and “West” on its All-Star Game jerseys, but that distinction is missing from the uniforms this year. Instead, players from the Western Conference will wear black, while those from the Eastern Conference will wear white. Accessories like headbands, arm bands and more will use the traditional color scheme: red for the West and blue for the East.

Additionally, for the first time ever, the uniforms will include the first and last name of the player on the back of the jersey. The first name will be above the number and the last name will be below it.
