Maluma powers his way onto Pollstar’s LIVE75 chart, debuting as the HOT SHOT artist of the week with the first boxoffice totals reported from his “Papi Juancho” world tour. Sold tickets from concerts at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Sept. 3 and Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas the following evening give the Colombian Latin Grammy winner a ticket average of 12,014 to earn the No. 4 ranking.

Grupo Firme returns to the chart after a one-week absence, jumping from the No. 8 position two weeks ago to No. 2 in this issue on the strength of three sold-out performances at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The regional Mexican band averaged 19,356 sold tickets from shows Sept. 10-12. They also take the HEAVY HITTER title with the chart’s top gross average of $1.89 million.
Dead & Company was last week’s HEAVY HITTER with a $1.92 million average gross from 11 shows, but this week the band has seven performances that fall in the chart’s eligibility time frame and a gross average $334,550 less than Grupo Firme. They still hold the top ranking, though, based on a ticket average of 19,586 at six venues. This is the group’s third week at No. 1 during the past month.
