This week’s Global Concert Pulse chart is led by Phil Collins and also includes a whole slew of new artists from many different genres.

Collins overtook Justin Timberlake, who actually increased the number of reports on the chart, which lowered his average gross to $3.1 million, a bit behind the former Genesis drummer’s average of $3.17 million in his run through Latin America.

The top five also features Pink at No. 4, who is the subject of next week’s Boxoffice Insider, with 38 reports.

The highest-ranking new entry is Jennifer Lopez, who jumps onto the chart with a $1.7 million average gross per market, and an average of 9,293 tickets on 12 reports. Those shows are all through her residency at Zappos Theater At Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

J. Lo remains in Sin city into September, and she previously held down a residency at

Another new entry on the chart is No. 41 “Worship Night In America” / Chris Tomlin, which was averaging 6,162 tickets and $180,245 grossed in 24 reports.

There are more Christian artists ascending farther down on the chart too, with

Acapella group Home Free entered at No. 67; popsters Why Don’t We jump on at No. 70; and hip-hoppers Flatbush Zombies are in at No. 72.

The bottom of the chart is flooded with new entries: I’m With Her at No. 93; Anthony Kavanagh at No. 96; The Oh Hellos at No. 98; SoMo at No. 99; and Anderson East at No. 100.
