Florida Georgia Line closes out day one of the Tortuga Music Festival in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., April 6.

Billy Joel heads up this slate of touring artists with the highest ranking on LIVE75 based on a 32,930-ticket average from performances at two Major League Baseball stadiums and one arena. Fenway Park in Boston and Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, were the 7th and 8th stadiums included on his 2019 schedule, and both logged earnings topping $5 million from sellout crowds. Ticket sales at Madison Square Garden, the iconic entertainer’s home away from home where he plays his monthly New York City residency, also adds to the overall counts for this tally.

Florida Georgia Line appears on the chart as the HOT SHOT touring artist of the week with ticket sales reported from the final seven venues on its summer amphitheater tour. After a 37-city run stateside that launched on June 13, the country duo wrapped on Sept. 28 with a sold-out performance at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, Calif. The tour lands at No. 3 based on a sold ticket average of 18,761 from seven events beginning with a sellout at Isleta Amphitheater in Albuquerque, N.M., Sept. 14.
Hard rock band Greta Van Fleet jumps eight positions to No. 14, earning NOISE MAKER status as the artist with the highest gain in ranking compared to last week’s results. The group averaged 6,991 sold tickets from outdoor concerts in Kansas City, Denver, San Diego and Irvine, Calif. along with a theater date at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco and a club show at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The band is touring this year behind its debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, released in October 2018.
