Taylor Swift bumps Paul McCartney to No. 2 on summer ticket-sellers chart
It can’t buy him love, but money can buy Paul McCartney the mightiest summer concert tour.
…Oh, wait. Nope.
TicketsNow has released the numbers for July’s summer concerts in its monthly Entertainment Index, and Taylor Swift’s Speak Now tour sits atop the online marketplace’s list. Her tour accounted for 6.3 percent of all concert tickets sold via TicketsNow last month, bumping Sir Paul McCartney’s On The Run tour to the No. 2-earner spot after it reigned in June.
McCartney’s tour wrapped up its run last week in Cincinnati; meanwhile, Swift will continue her hot streak across North America through November.
Rounding out July’s top five sellers are Katy Perry’s California Dreams tour, Lil Wayne’s I Am Still Music tour and U2’s 360 tour, which wrapped its two-year marathon run on July 30 in Canada.
In the grander scheme of things, T-Swift’s concert clocks in at No. 6 on the list of overall events selling tickets through TicketsNow. The U.S. Open tennis tournament took July’s top honor, accounting for almost one-fifth of all tickets sold on TicketsNow.com.
Tell us how you really feel, guys—is Taylor Swift really the summer’s hottest “ticket to ride?”
