BTS play SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif. , during a four-night run Nov. 27-28 + Dec. 1-2.
BTS powers to No. 1 on Pollstar‘s LIVE75 chart the strength of four sold-out performances at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif., Nov. 27-28 and Dec. 1-2, easily scoring HOT SHOT status as the artist with the highest-ranked debut. Being the sole stadium concerts included in box-office results used to create the chart, the per show ticket average of 53,438 is almost three times higher than the second-ranked tour. The group’s four-show ticket count at the stadium reached 213,752 – the highest for a solo headliner at one venue since the beginning of 2021.
Grosses for BTS topped $33.3 million in L.A., averaging $8.32 million per show to give the South Korean septet the HEAVY HITTER mantle as the touring act with the highest gross average. It surpasses the $2.79 million figure from Genesis’ North American tour that produced the top gross average last week based on two Chicago sellouts.
Nashville-based artist Anderson East leaps 30 positions to land at No. 34 as the NOISE MAKER of the week, scoring a ticket average of 2,273 from two sold-out performances at the city’s historic Ryman Auditorium. The Nov. 12-13 concerts, with Foy Vance as opener, was the Music City stop on the North American tour supporting his latest album, Maybe We Never Die, released in August.
Rapper Jack Harlow, ranked 40th, is the chart’s BREAKTHROUGH artist based on 10 sold-out shows, the highest number of sellouts among tours outside of the top 25. He has just one less than bluegrass artist Billy Strings at No. 25, who claimed the same status in last week’s issue.
