Elton John tickles the ivories at Gotham Hall in New York City.
Elton John repeats at No. 1 on LIVE75 and scores the HEAVY HITTER moniker for a second consecutive week based on a four-show ticket average of 21,139 and a gross average of $2.7 million. The shows occurred at three stadiums during the final stretch of his trek through Australia and New Zealand earlier this year. Sydney-based Chugg Entertainment promoted the Oceania dates on Sir Elton’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” trek, along with Melbourne’s Frontier Touring on select shows.
Landing at No. 7 with the most performances of any tour in the top 10 is the Denver-based indie folk band The Lumineers
. The group averaged a total of 11,628 tickets per show from 12 concerts at 10 U.S. and Canadian arenas. Sellout crowds were reported in all markets. Allstate Arena in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont and Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena each hosted the band for concerts on two consecutive nights – Allstate logged 24,239 sold seats and the Toronto facility sold 26,078 tickets. The band was on the road in North America early this year in support of III, their most recent album released last September.
Alt-rock band The Revivalists
from New Orleans debuts on the chart at No. 19 as the HOT SHOT tour of the week, averaging 3,115 tickets per night. The group hits the chart with three recent concerts at clubs in Washington, D.C.; St. Louis and Columbus, Ohio. Dates are currently booked later this year for the band’s “Into the Stars Tour,” including some fall shows rescheduled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Sacramento, Calif-based rock band Tesla
jumps 11 positions to grab the NOISE MAKER title, ranking 47th with a 958-ticket average from five club dates stateside.
