TicketNetwork Advisory -- Top Ten Pop and Rock Acts Currently on Tour

(October 21, 2011)

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 10/21/11 -- Fan favorites Bob Seger and Sting are the two leading artists among the pop and rock acts currently selling tickets on the TicketNetwork Exchange*. Joining Seger and Sting in the top ten are Guns N' Roses, Paul Simon, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Straight No Chaser, Ryan Adams, Josh Groban, and Roger Daltrey.

These top acts accounted for 47% of pop and rock category ticket sales over the last month, but no one act overwhelmingly dominated the top ten. For example, tickets for Seger's tour only accounted for a little over 27% of all tickets sold among the ten acts. However, the percentage dropped precipitously after the number five position, Paul Simon, so that the last position on the list, held by Roger Daltrey, only account for about 2.5% of tickets sold.

The average selling price for all top ten artists combined is $129, while the highest average price is for Sting, at $157. The lowest average price is for Straight No Chaser, at $90. View the table below to see the average prices for the other top ten performers.
