Billboard just launched its monthly Boxscore series, charting the top events of each month. Guess who’s topping the inaugural “Top Tours” chart? None other than Elton John.
Elton’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” grossed $23-point-four-million from more than 170,000 tickets sold after 12 shows in February. Since kicking off his tour in September, Elton has sold out all of the 65 shows, including multiple-night stints at arenas in California, Illinois and New York.
The trek is one of the few farewell tours on the list, with KISS close behind at two and Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band at 13. Rounding out the top five for February are Michael Bublé, Justin Timberlake and Ed Sheeran.
