this week’s Hot Shot and Heavy Hitter on LIVE75 and ranks No. 2 on APX. He’s pictured performing on Dec. 10, 2021, at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Dua Lipa impacts both the Artist Power Index and LIVE75 based on reported ticket sales from two arenas. With 23,928 tickets sold at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena and Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, she takes No. 1 on APX with Live, Streaming and Airplay rankings all landing among the top 10, while making her debut appearance on LIVE75 at No. 6 based on a sold-ticket average of 11,964 per show.

Her tour that kicked off on Feb. 9 in Miami supports her studio album Future Nostalgia, released in March 2020. The LP has spawned six hit singles and also earned the English singer/songwriter multiple Grammy Award nominations last year including a win for Best Pop Vocal Album. 
Joining Lipa on both charts is Bad Bunny, who ranks second on APX for a second consecutive week, largely by scoring the second-highest Live and Social ranks among the top 50. He also makes his debut at No. 2 this week on LIVE75 as the “Hot Shot” artist with the highest ticket average (14,575) for a first-time appearance on the chart.
With seven shows reported from his “El Último Tour del Mundo” that launched in Denver on Feb. 9, Bad Bunny also earns “Heavy Hitter” status as the artist with the highest gross average. With a box-office haul topping $18.3 million, his average gross is $2.6 million, making him the only artist to top the $2 million mark.
Repeating at No. 1 on LIVE75 is Eric Church based on a 14,778-ticket average at arenas in Grand Rapids, Detroit, Louisville, Indianapolis and Omaha. Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena drew the largest crowd with 16,791 attendees on Jan. 22.
