Boxoffice Insider: Miranda Lambert Lives Like Hippie, Grosses $14 Million

Miranda Lambert’s first-quarter “Livin’ Like Hippies” tour wrapped in late March, reported in full with a total of just under $14 million grossed and 239,327 tickets sold over 24 shows.

“The 2018 Livin’ Like Hippies Tour was the result of a lot of thought, planning and collaboration across the board,” Joey Lee, partner at WME and co-head of its Nashville office, told Pollstar. “Miranda and her entire team worked together on this tour, from inception to execution, to make sure this was a show like no other, and I think we achieved that. We could not be more happy to see what a huge success it has been.”

Some impressive showings reported from that run include Sprint Center in Kansas City March 16, which sold out at 11,616 tickets and grossed $722,209, as well as Rupp Arena in Kentucky, which sold out 13,403 tickets and grossed $767,270.

The run averaged 9,972 tickets sold per show and $583,098 grossed, taking in markets on both coasts, with five shows in California as well as secondary markets in the South and Midwest. 

On support for all dates was Jon Pardi, with the second support slot switching from Charlie Worsham, (recent Hotstar) Ashley McBryde, Sunny Sweeney, The Steel Woods, Lucie Silvas, The Turnpike Troubadours, and Brent Cobb.

Only two shows grossed less than $500,000 on the tour leg and those were just under, at $471,461 and $490,457 with one still sold out.

Apart from the touring success, Lambert made headlines recently for teasing a Pistol Annies reunion, posting a photo online with the hashtags #PistolAnnies, #Workplay and #WeWereWritingIPromise, adding to what would be new music from the trio that also includes Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley.

Lambert will head back out on the road in July with Little Big Town at venues such as PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati and Xfinity Center in Massachusetts.

“We are all looking forward to the summer run with Little Big Town,” Lee added. “It is going to be a great show, and I encourage everyone to buy a ticket and come check it out.”
