2012 certainly seems to be the year the Boy Band returned. We all remember the days when the New Kids on the Block, NSYNC, Backstreet Boys and the like were dominating the air waves- at least those of us middle-aged folks do. Well, today we have One Direction, The Wanted, and Big Time Rush. These teen pop sensations are dominating TV, radio, and even concert ticket sales. Demand is so strong for 1D tickets (in particular Meet and Greet Passes) that they have already scheduled and started selling tickets for concerts in 2013! A smart move by the band to profit off of their extreme popularity at the moment…you never know how long it will last.
To give you an idea just how popular these boy bands are below is some data on the ticket prices for both One Direction and Big Time Rush as they begin their respective tours. As you can see, ticket prices are far exceed that of music industry legends Madonna and Bruce Springsteen!
