Jeff Back passed in January this year at the age of 78. The British guitar virtuoso and multiple Grammy winner pushed the boundaries of blues, jazz and rock ‘n’ roll, and influenced generations of shredders along the way.
Beck’s Pollstar box office history stretches back to 1989. Since then, his overall gross as a headliner totals $65 million based on 1.36 million tickets sold at 402 reported shows.
In 2022, 25 of his shows were reported, primarily at theaters. He averaged a gross of $183,169 and 2,289 sold tickets per show.
His last box office report to Pollstar was for a Nov. 20 show with actor and friend Johnny Depp at Hard Rock Live Sacramento in Wheatland, California, where they sold out 2,272 tickets for a gross of $169,550. Depp joins the tribute lineup at the Royal Albert Hall.
