While most of the industry decompressed during the holiday break, the Pollstar boxoffice staff worked every day except the actual holidays to try and complete our Year-End research.

Thousands of boxoffice reports were sent to us just before Christmas and unfortunately that can lead to some errors. One such case was the data for Trans-Siberian Orchestra, which was on tour into early January.

Even though it was after our deadline, information we received on Dec. 25th should have been counted in their totals.

TSO should have had a projected total gross for 2008 of $43.7 million. With more than 1.04 million tickets sold, that moves them up from No. 19 to No. 12 on the Top 200 tours.
