Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience world tour heads up the weekly ranking of Hot Tours, with sales reported from its European leg that kicked off at the end of March and ran through June 10. Ticket sales totaled $77.3 million from the trek that hit 23 cities in 14 countries on the continent, along with a handful of dates in Middle Eastern markets. Touring in support of his most recent studio albums released last year, “The 20/20 Experience” and “The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2,” Timberlake launched the world tour in New York City on November 6, playing 38 cities in the U.S. and Canada during a four-month stretch.
The subsequent European leg began in the U.K. on March 30 and included two-show engagements at arenas in seven cities as well as London’s O2 Arena, which hosted the tour for three nights. Six stadiums were also on the schedule, including the Stade de France in Paris, which drew the largest crowd. 57,286 fans filled the national stadium of France on April 26 for a single performance, the highest attendance reported at one venue during both legs of the tour. Overall box office counts since launch place the pop superstar among the top-grossing touring artists of the year with $148 million in ticket sales from 1.3 million fans at 78 performances.
Ranked second among the 10 top-grossing touring artists of the week, One Direction adds $42.6 million to the Where We Are tour’s overall box office gross that is nearing the $100 million mark. This week’s tally includes revenue from sold-out shows at four U.K. stadiums, as reported by concert promoter SJM Concerts in Manchester. With 5 Seconds of Summer on the bill as opening act, the tour included performances on June 6, 7 and 8 at London’s Wembley Stadium, one of three venues to host the tour for three shows. The London run grossed $20 million (£11.9 million) with an attendance count logged at 236,566, the highest draw from a single venue since the world tour began in April. Also included in this report is Manchester’s Etihad Stadium that hosted the pop stars for three nights. The May 30-31, June 1 engagement produced a sold ticket count of 158,579 and $12.9 million in sales. Box office stats from Croke Park in Dublin, the other venue with a three-show run, were reported in a previous week. 1D remains on the road in Europe through July 13 and will kick off a North American run at the beginning of August.
George Strait is third on the slate of Hot Tours, with reported sales from his record-breaking tour finale on June 7 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. With $18.1 million in sales from a sold-out crowd of 104,793 at the home stadium of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, the country music legend smashed multiple attendance records with his final tour performance.
The concert set a new record for single-show attendance at a U.S. stadium, as well as any indoor venue worldwide. The event also established Strait as country music’s most successful artist ever, based on single-show gross and attendance counts. The three top-grossing performances from the farewell tour — Dallas, Houston and San Antonio — top the all-time list of single performances among country artists according to Billboard’s Boxscore archives.
As well, the first sales figures have been reported from the world tour in support of Lady Gaga’s 2013 album “ARTPOP.” With box office grosses topping $13.9 million from the first 14 performances, the pop star locks down the No. 4 slot on Hot Tours with more than 171,000 tickets sold. The arena tour, dubbed artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball, launched on May 4 at BB&T Center in the Ft. Lauderdale market, the first date of a North American leg that will play 36 cities through August 9. Dates in Asia, Australia, the Middle East and Europe are on the books through late November.
Also included in this week’s tally is Lady Gaga’s seven-show run at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City earlier this year. The event grossed $1.5 million from 24,532 sold tickets at shows on March 28, 30, 31 and April 2, 4, 6 and 7 to mark the closing of the historic Manhattan entertainment venue.

Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z are planning a major stadium tour this summer, sources involved in the negotiations tell Rolling Stone. While talks are still ongoing, the tour as currently planned would include 11 to 13 stadium dates.
Timberlake hinted Saturday on Twitter that something was in the works, writing, “Big news coming after Justin’s Grammys performance.” According to the New York Post, Timberlake said, somewhat vaguely, on the red carpet before the Grammys, “We’re definitely going to go on tour . . . I don’t know how much I should say. . . . It’s going to be a lot of fun, I know that.”
The two stars have appeared on stage together a few times recently for performances of Timberlake’s Hov-assisted comeback single “Suit & Tie.” Jay joined Timberlake during a show in New Orleans over Super Bowl weekend, the pop-star’s first live show in nearly five years; and the duo also joined forces for a rendition of the cut at this weekend’s Grammy Awards.
Timberlake’s highly anticipated new album The 20/20 Experience is set for a March 19th release. Be sure to check out our exclusive interview with the pop star, where he talks about his return to music and how he and long-time producer Timbaland put together the new LP: “We encapsulated ourselves in the studio and I didn’t tell anybody,” Timberlake said. “I was just like, ‘Let’s make some music without all the hoopla of, like expectations. Let’s just make something that feels genuine from us.’ And I’m glad we were able to do that way because, for me, it’s the best stuff I’ve ever done.”

Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z are packing up their suits and ties for a 10-city tour, according to several media reports.
The Pop/Rap duo have taken to the stage twice in the past month — once during Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans and most recently at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, both times performing Timberlake’s comeback track “Suit and Tie,” off his upcoming album “The 20/20 Experience.”
According to People.com, Timberlake and Jay-Z are said to be lining up stops in at least 10 cities during a stadium tour together.
While neither artist’s camp could be reached for comment, the New York Post said Timberlake made the admission on the Grammy red carpet.
“We’re definitely going to go on tour . . . I don’t know how much I should say . . . It’s going to be a lot of fun, I know that,” Timberlake reportedly told the Post.
Timberlake would not elaborate on who makes up the “we” but several media reports claim it will be Jay-Z.
Sunday’s Grammy performance marked Timberlake’s return to the music scene after a nearly seven year hiatus. Timberlake spent the past few years developing his movie career with starring roles in “The Social Network” and “Friends With Benefits.”
“Suit & Tie,” to be released on March 19, is part of Timberlake’s third solo album.
