Eric Church spends his third week at No. 1 on Pollstar‘s LIVE75 based on ticket sales reported from four October performances on his “Gather Again” trek, currently on the road in North America. Sold-out arena concerts in four cities produced a total of 58,393 sold seats, an average of 14,598 per show, to land the country star in the top spot. Pittsburgh’s PPG Paints Arena moved the most tickets of the four with 16,866 sold for his Oct. 8 concert.
Harry Styles is the HEAVY HITTER with box-office results reported from four performances at two arenas on his “Love On Tour” trek, playing U.S. cities through November. Two-night engagements at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., and Atlanta’s State Farm Arena generated a combined gross of $7.2 million for a $1.8 million average, the highest of the 75 artists on the chart. Styles also scores the NOISE MAKER tag with the week’s highest jump in position, leaping from No. 16 in the previous issue to No. 4.
Twenty One Pilots has the highest-ranked chart debut, earning HOT SHOT status with an appearance at No. 8. The duo performed for sellout crowds in two southern California venues, the Forum in Inglewood and L.A.’s Greek Theatre, for a 9,837-ticket average from both. Grosses at the Forum topped $1.16 million, while the Greek concert produced sold-ticket earnings just over $400,000.
The BREAKTHROUGH act of the week, which goes to the artist outside the top 25 with the highest sellout percentage, is Dance Gavin Dance with six concerts at five venues during the chart’s eligibility period.
