Florence + The Machine is the latest touring hadliner to score a “Hot Shot” debut on LIVE75 with the highest ticket average among new chart entries. The indie rock group averaged 15,233 sold seats per show during a stretch of concert dates on the American West Coast during the “Dance Fever” world tour. With both European and North American shows on the schedule in 2022, the tour kicked off last spring in support of the band’s fifth studio album that debuted in May.

Included in chart eligibility this week is the final U.S. engagement on the “Dance Fever” tour, a two-night event staged at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Oct. 14-15. The Live Nation-produced concerts drew 27,846 fans to the amphitheater and scored a gross of $2.9 million. On Oct. 9, lead singer Florence Welch and the band sold out a performance in the San Francisco market with 22,019 fans in attendance at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View.

Bad Bunny holds on to No. 1 on LIVE75 for a second week based on ticket sales figures reported from the first three stadiums on the Latin American leg of his “World’s Hottest Tour,” booked through Dec. 10. With two performances at each venue, he moved a total of 274,739 tickets, an average of 45,789 per show, to repeat atop the chart. His gross average of $3.4 million earns his 12th consecutive “Heavy Hitter” tag as the highest among the artists in the Top 75, yet the average gross from three stadium shows on No. 2-ranked Guns N’ Roses’ Latin American tour is only $218,000 less.

The Puerto Rican artist also retains his No. 1 status on the Artist Power Index with the highest ranking for the fourth week in a row. His top position is powered by Top 10 scores in three of the chart’s four metrics: Live, Streaming and Social.

Harry Styles and Post Malone rank at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively, for a third week on the strength of high APX scores in both Live and Airplay. Included in the mix for Styles was 11 performances during multiple show runs in Chicago and Los Angeles on his “Love On Tour,” while 17 concerts in the U.S. on Malone’s “Twelve Carat” tour propel him to the top three on the chart.

Recent two-time CMA Award winner Cody Johnson is classified as the “Noisemaker” on LIVE75 after jumping eight positions in the rankings this week to No. 13. The country singer’s seven-show ticket average of 8,318 comes from two performances in Texas, two in California and single shows in Nevada, Idaho and Washington on his “Cody Johnson & Friends” tour that wraps for the year on Dec. 9. His best ticket count of the seven was 12,048 from a sold-out show on Oct. 15 at Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth, Texas.

Lil Nas X is the “Breakthrough” artist on LIVE75 with the most sellouts reported among the tours ranked beyond the Top 25. The rapper/singer lands at No. 26 with a ticket average of 5,204 from six concerts at theaters in Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, Phoenix and San Francisco. His top attendance was 10,633 from two shows at L.A.’s YouTube Theater.

Argentina’s Tiago PZK also ranks with a 100% sellout average at six shows, but he lands at No. 42 with a 1,531-ticket average. All six of his shows occurred in Spanish venues.
