Kendrick Lamar climbed and Romeo Santos debuted near the top of the weekly Global Concert Pulse chart.

Bruno Mars and “Springsteen On Broadway” still have the No. 1 and 2 positions locked up, but Queen + Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga have begun rotating off the chart, as their most recent reports are mostly beyond the time frame of the chart, making room for Kung-Fu Kenny and the King Of Bachata.

Romeo entered with nearly $1.6 million grossed per market appearance and 15,477 tickets averaged in 11 reports. His average ticket price was high, at $101 a stub on average.

Demi Lovato entered the chart last week at No. 9, and has now moved to No. 6 with more than $1 million grossed on average per night. Demi reported the full North American tour, with 20 shows, and was averaging 12,448 tickets per market, at about $80 per market. Last week also saw Harry Styles (No. 8), Miranda Lambert (No. 13), and Jason Isbell (No. 35), who recently announced a whole new leg, debut on the chart.

New entries on the chart this week include Bad Bunny at No. 17, Jim Jefferies at No. 30, and Alice Cooper at No. 36.

Bad Bunny was rocking to the tune of $486,084 per market appearance, with an average of 5,626. Not too shabby for a band whose first recorded show we have was Mega Summer Concert at Madison Square Garden Arena in New York Aug. 24 last year.

The Bunny is busy, with tour dates in North American arenas through the summer and a three-night run planned at Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina, May 12-14.

Jim Jefferies has done Europe, Israel, Australia and North America so far this year, with a few more stops planned in the U.S. this month. He is averaging $196,863 off 3,659 tickets per market.

There was a whole slough of new artists this week, including a / Cashmere Cat co-bill (No. 58), an Insane Clown Posse / Attila co-bill (No. 80), and

One more artist on our chart this week is Datsik, who entered at No. 62, but has canceled all headline and festival appearances following allegations of sexual assault. The artist was dropped by Circle Talent Agency (recently acquired by UTA), management company Deckstar and his record label Firepower Records within hours of the allegations being made public.
