Country artists are making a splash on the concert circuit this FALL, according to statistics released TODAY (9/24) by STUBHUB. The ticket marketplace released the ten hottest concerts of the FALL season, as determined by sales and demand drawn from its more than 16 million visitors and nearly 10 million live events per month, utilizing numbers from total sales on STUBHUB for dates from LABOR DAY through THANKSGIVING.
CAPITOL NASHVILLE artist LUKE BRYAN comes in at number six on the list, with PEARL/RCA NASHVILLE's GARTH BROOKS in at number seven. Fittingly, both artists are nominated for the "49TH ANNUAL CMA AWARDS" Entertainer Of The Year (NET NEWS 9/9), though BROOKS may well surpass BRYAN in total sales through THANKSGIVING by the end of the season, as he only releases tickets for one city at a time. Taking the top slot in FALL touring is BIG MACHINE's Country star turned Pop star TAYLOR SWIFT, who not only leads as the top selling FALL tour, but has the highest selling FALL concert on STUBHUB with her SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17th show at AT&T STADIUM in DALLAS.
The top ten FALL tours overall are as follows: (1) TAYLOR SWIFT; (2) AC/DC; (3) FOO FIGHTERS; (4) ED SHEERAN; (5) MADONNA; (6) LUKE BRYAN; (7) GARTH BROOKS; (8) ONE DIRECTION; (9) BILLY JOEL; and (10) JANET JACKSON.
