It looks like Zayn Malik leaving One Direction didn’t result in fans deserting the group’s On the Road Again tour—it tops Billboard’s Hot Tours chart for the week of April 22.

The chart-topping $6.2 million total gross comes from the two shows the band had in Johannesburg, South Africa on March 28 and 29, just days after Malik announced his exit. The two shows had a total attendance of 131,615.

Prior to Malik’s parting, One Direction also topped the Hot Tours chart on April 1, with 19 On the Road Again Tour stops grossing more than $68 million and bringing 565,853 fans to shows from Feb. 7 to March 25.

Following One Direction on the April 22 chart is Michael Buble, who sits at No. 2 with $2.9 million grossed over four shows in South Africa. Fleetwood Mac comes in at No. 3, with $1.6 million grossed from their March 25 show in Atlanta with 13,711 people in attendance. Kevin Hart is No. 4 thanks to his two-night stint in Nashville that grossed $1.5 million. Also making the list are Chris Brown and Trey Songz, John Farnham and Olivia Newton-John, Katt Williams, The Tragically Hip, Eric Church, and Neil Diamond.
