Metallica performs at Milano Summer Festival for their “WorldWired” tour in Milan, Italy, May 8, 2019.
Metallica tops LIVE75 for the sixth time this year, taking the No. 1 ranking with a mammoth sold-ticket average of 47,342 from shows at three stadiums and two outdoor concert sites in Europe.
The band’s two September shows at San Francisco’s Chase Center also contribute to the average that is more than twice that of the second-ranked touring artist, Zac Brown Band, charting with a 10-show ticket average of 20,060. 
The massive venues are the difference, of course, with all of Metallica’s European dates set in stadiums or large outdoor sites. The lowest attendance count of the five was 48,755 at Vienna’s Ernst Happel Stadion, while the best-attended stop was at Prague’s Letnany Airport with 68,474 in attendance 
for the open-air event.

Zac Brown Band has two stadiums in its tally of venues for this week’s chart – Boston’s Fenway Park and the considerably smaller Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pa., that tends to host events closer to the 20,000-seat level. At Fenway Park, in what has become a traditional summer event for New England-based fans of the country group, their concerts on Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 produced an attendance count of 71,514. They were also the band’s 10th and 11th consecutive sold-out concerts there since debuting as a headliner in June 2014.
With a debut in the rankings at No. 3, veteran Latin pop group OV7 heads up a slate of artists on the 2019 edition of the “90’s Pop” tour, now in its third year on the road with multiple artists for each date. The package show enters LIVE75 as the HOT SHOT tour this week based on a ticket average of 16,721 from concerts in Mexico at arenas in Mexico City and Monterrey as well as an outdoor site in León. 

Also on the bill for the Zignia Live-promoted events were Kabah, JNS, Magneto, Mercurio, Caló and The Sacados.
Moving back to the rock world, Scorpions are also in the limelight this week, grabbing attention as the chart’s NOISE MAKER with the highest upward movement among the 75 ranked tours. With an average of 11,828 tickets sold at five international venues – two in Germany in August and three in Brazil in September, the rockers jump to No. 10 this week following their stint in the 22nd position on last week’s chart. 
The band first appeared on the chart in the Aug. 12 issue as that week’s HOT SHOT based on sales from their “Crazy World” tour that launched in June 2017 and is set to wrap this November.
Country star Eric Church returns to LIVE75 with the first two dates on the fall leg of his “Double Down” tour that consistently charted earlier this year during the tour’s opening trek. 
He secures No. 15 with a 10,393-ticket average from two-night engagements at two arenas – Resch Center in Green Bay, Wis., and Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta. Produced by the Messina Touring Group, the shows added $3.5 million to the tour’s overall 2019 gross of $58 million.
