Fleetwood Mac leads the slate of touring artists in the weekly tally of Hot Tours (see list, below) based on box office revenue from its On With the Show tour that launched in September, 2014. During the latest tracking period, three arenas reported $3.8 million in ticket sales from the veteran rock band's winter trek through markets in the U.S. and Canada.
A Jan. 20 sellout at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich. produced the top gross among the three venues with $1.4 million in revenue from 10,204 sold seats. The number of tickets sold was 172 more than that in Montreal two weeks later at the Bell Centre on Feb. 5, generating sales just over $1 million. Finally, with ticket prices ranging from $125 to $195, the group's Feb. 7 concert at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. produced a $1.3 million take from 7,542 sold tickets.
The On With the Show tour will continue its North American schedule of more than 80 concerts through April 14, wrapping in the Los Angeles market at the Forum in Inglewood. A six-week European trek will follow beginning with a two-night stand at London's O2 Arena on May 27.
