Dead & Company moves up from No. 2 to the top of Pollstar‘s LIVE75 chart, appearing at No. 1 for a second time this year based on a sold-ticket average of 21,612. With 11 shows at 10 venues – three stadiums and seven amphitheaters, the band has an average gross of $1.92 million, the highest among the top 25 tours, which earns them the HEAVY HITTER tag. Their U.S. tour is currently set to wrap with a three-night engagement at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles at the end of October.
Eric Clapton makes his first appearance on the chart, entering at No. 4 as the HOT SHOT touring artist on the strength of four September concerts at southern U.S. arenas. His average number of sold seats at the venues was 10,656. He is nearing the end of a North American trek that is booked through Sept. 26. Currently he is scheduled to head to Europe in 2022 with plans to launch a 16-city tour in London on the seventh of May.
A 7,176-ticket average gives Latin pop star Marc Anthony the sixth ranking on the chart as he makes his debut this week with sales from two arena dates. He is currently on the road stateside through the end of October.
Other artists debuting on the chart this week include Joe Rogan, Brantley Gilbert, Almost Queen – Tribute to Queen, Classic Albums Live, Dance Gavin Dance, Los Tigres Del Norte, and Charlie Wilson.
