Eric Church makes a top-10 appearance on LIVE75, entering at No. 7 as the “Hot Shot” touring artist of the week with the highest-ranked debut. The country star lands on the chart based on reported ticket sales from nine concerts at six outdoor amphitheaters booked on his “Outsiders Revival” tour through North America that just wrapped at the end of September.

The Wharf Amphitheater in Orange Beach, Alabama hosted the tour for three shows, Aug. 17-19, and welcomed a total of 27,206 fans during the run. The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington also booked multiple shows, Sept. 9-10, and sold 33,368 tickets for both concerts at the venue. Altogether, the nine performances that fall in the chart eligibility period for LIVE75 moved 132,258 tickets, an average of 14,695 sold seats per show. Grosses from all nine concerts stretch just over $12 million.

Church’s 2023 Live Nation-produced tour has grossed $39 million overall since launching on June 22 in Milwaukee after a series of country festival headlining appearances in the spring. The number of tickets sold from the tour opener through his two concerts at the Gorge is 462,948 from 28 performances. Following the tour, October festival dates at Bristol, Tennessee and Sacramento, California will be his final live shows for the year.

On the Artist Power Index, Junior H is the only performer making a debut this week, scoring the 48th ranking based on four performances during his “Sad Boyz” tour through U.S. cities this fall. Shows in Fresno and San Jose, California; Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Duluth, Georgia earn the Mexican corridos tumbados artist his position in the top 50. His current tour through the U.S. kicked off on Aug. 11 at Arena in Los Angeles where he played for a sellout crowd of 13,242 and grossed over $1.4 million.

Sugar Sammy has the ”Breakthrough” tour on LIVE75 as the artist with the best sellout percentage among the tours ranked outside the top 25. The Montreal-born comedian takes the 59th position on the chart based on a sold-ticket average of 758 from 12 sold-out performances during September at two Canadian theaters. He played two shows at Theatre Magog in Sherbrooke, Quebec, selling 661 tickets, then appeared at Salle Pierre-Mercure in Montreal for 10 performances that moved 8,435 tickets – all with sellout crowds in attendance.

His “You’re Gonna Rire 2” tour through Quebec and other Canadian provinces is continuing its run at the Montreal venue with four more shows currently on the books for October. Then in 2024, he is on the schedule there for six more performances in February. Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto are among the other cities hosting the tour during the upcoming months.

For the fourth time this year, Get The Led Out is the “Noisemaker” on LIVE75 with the highest move up the chart compared to the previous week. This time the Led Zeppelin tribute band jumps 14 positions to take No. 30 on the chart with a sold-ticket average of 4,243 from three concerts.
