Pollstar | 2019 Q1 Top Tours


Travis Scott’s “Astroword Tour” owned Pollstar’s 2019 Q1 Top Ticket Sales with an astronomical 438,982 tickets sold.

On Scott’s heels is the No. 2 headliner, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, with 429,813 sold tickets during the group’s winter tour. TSO marked its 20th anniversary season in 2018 and the second trek without founder Paul O’Neill, who died in April 2017. With two companies on the road simultaneously during November and December each year, the band tours almost exclusively in North American cities, although brief European runs were added in 2011 and 2013.

Following in the third slot is Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band with 318,359 sold tickets on the veteran rocker’s Travelin’ Man tour that marks his final stint on the road after more a half-century as a touring artist. Playing North American arenas, Seger kicked off the tour in November and is currently slated to continue through June, wrapping with a final string of six shows booked at DTE Energy Music Theatre in his hometown of Detroit.

Pop superstar Justin Timberlake, heavy metal titans Metallica and Sir Elton John follow in the rankings, all with ticket sales topping 200,000 during Q1.

All figures are for tickets sold worldwide as reported to Pollstar for shows played between 11/22/18 and 2/20/19.
