The final months of 2023 have seen Travis Scott jump to the next level as a concert touring artist with his potential ticket revenue from his current “Utopia Tour Presents Circus Maximus” landing in the $80 million range from half-a-million sold tickets for his new tour, according to box-office projections supplied by Live Nation, the tour’s promoter.

It would be a personal best for the rapper whose last venture on the road, the “Astroworld – Wish You Were Here” tour in 2018 and 2019, grossed over $60 million at 55 shows, based on box-office figures reported to Pollstar.

Scott’s team has also reported that his merch sales for “Circus Maximus Tour” are through the roof setting records at American Airlines Center in Dallas, which surpassed $1 million in sales last week (10/17-18) and at Denver’s Ball Arena r on Sunday night (10/22) grossing $1.06 million.

Touring in support of his fourth studio album Utopia, released in July on Cactus Jack and Epic Records, the Houston native kicked off his “Utopia Tour Presents Circus Maximus” on Oct. 11 with 38 shows scheduled at arenas in North American cities through Dec. 29, including multiple-show engagements in New York City, Dallas, Boston, Toronto, Miami and Oakland among others.

One stadium performance is also included on this year’s tour, a Nov. 5 concert at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles which stands to rank as the biggest headlining performance of his touring career so far and is also the first hip-hop artist to headline and sell-out SoFi.

His box-office history shows the top-grossing concert run from his past tours was a two-night stand at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Nov. 27-28, 2018 that racked up $2.9 million at the box office from 32,602 sold tickets.

In September, Scott added second nights to 11 cities to the “Circus Maximus Tour” that had all sold out and included additional shows in Raleigh (PNC Arena), Dallas (American Airlines Center), Phoenix (Footprint Center), Oakland (Oakland Arena), Portland (Moda Center), Austin (Moody Center), Miami (Kaseya Center), Atlanta (State Farm Arena), Brooklyn (Barclays Center), Boston (TD Garden) and Toronto (Scotia Bank).

According to the tour’s initial announcement, $2 from every ticket “will go to Cactus Jack Foundation which is a 501(c)3 with a mission to uplift Houston youth through toy drives, scholarship programs to HBCU college students, and fulfilling expenses for education and creative endeavors.”

Currently the “Utopia Tour Presents Circus Maximus” is slated to run through Dec. 29, but sources have indicated that a second North American leg and international legs are likely for 2024.
