Is it fucking nice to see Guns n ROses back on top again??????
lton John & Billy Joel‘s Face 2 Face Tour ranks at the top of the latest Hot Tours tally based on two performances at Seattle’s KeyArena on Feb. 3 and 6. The shows were make-up dates originally scheduled for last November but postponed due to John taking ill. Both concerts were sellouts with a combined total of $3.7 million in box office grosses. 27,605 fans attended the two sold out performances.
Veteran rock band Mötley Crüe is second among the current list of Hot Tours based on totals from its Dead of Winter Canadian Tour that played 10 cities during January and February. Totals from eight of those concerts were reported during the past week with an overall gross of $2.8 million ($3 million Canadian) earned at the box office. Of those eight shows, the top attendance came at Edmonton’s Rexall Place, home arena for the NHL’s Oilers. The Jan. 27 event produced over half-a-million Canadian dollars in gross ticket sales. The band’s short Canadian trek follows a busy 2009 on the road beginning with last year’s Saints of Los Angeles Tour in North America and Europe as well as the second consecutive summer Crüe Fest Tour that played July through September.
Guns N’ Roses lands at No. 3 in the rankings based on box office totals from the Canadian leg of its Chinese Democracy World Tour. With six venues submitting totals during the most recent reporting period, combined grosses topped $2.6 million (over $2.7 million Canadian). The 17,500-seat arena Rexall Place in Edmonton produced the band’s top gross and attendance on Jan. 17 just as it did for Mötley Crüe 10 days later.
