The Stones assume their rightful place on the throne as No. 1 this week. The band is pictured, with new drummer Steve Jordan, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas Nov. 6.
The Rolling Stones’ “No Filter” tour makes its first appearance on LIVE75 this fall based on box-office results reported from six stadiums on the band’s 14-city trek through U.S. markets.
The tour earns the HOT SHOT moniker as the top debut of the week with a seven-show sold ticket average of 43,073, surpassing country star Eric Church at No. 2 who held the top ranking for three consecutive weeks.
The Stones also own the HEAVY HITTER tag with a gross average of $10.1 million. They remain the only artist ever to claim that status based on a $10 million average or higher. They previously accomplished it for eight consecutive weeks during the summer of 2019 on the “No Filter” tour’s first North American leg.
Also making his first appearance on the chart is Chris Stapleton, ranked third with a 13,318-ticket average from eight shows on his “All-American Road Show” tour booked stateside through mid-December. Pitbull also debuts this week on the strength of six performances at U.S. venues on his “I Feel Good” tour supported by Iggy Azalea. His ticket average totals 11,275 from concerts dated Oct. 6 through 13.
Three-time Grammy Award winner Little Big Town is the chart’s NOISE MAKER with a five-position jump to No. 34 in the ranking based on an eight-show ticket average of 2,883. The country group’s “Nightfall” trek is also the BREAKTHROUGH tour of the week with sellouts recorded at all seven venues including Santander Performing Arts Center in Reading, Pa., the only one to host the band for two shows.
