Out with the old and in with the new. We're another year down, and it's just about time to look ahead to the coming months. However, as we settle into 2014, let's take a moment to see what happened in terms of ticket sales at TicketNetwork.com in 2013.
As it turns out, for me at least, there are few surprises in the overall Top 10 list:
Indeed, this list looks very familiar for anybody who has followed the monthly Top 10 lists over the past year. First, thanks to some very affordable tickets, and a never-dampening enthusiasm for its popular circus show, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey circus has the top spot in the overall Top 10. Earlier this year, the show spent three straight months in the number spot. It was also #1 in March. Even when it wasn't number one, it was almost always near the top, usually in the second position.
Kanye West announced he will be adding at least seven additional U.S. tour dates to his most recent tour, extending the Yeezus Tour into 2014. The next leg begins Feb. 13 in University Park, PA. Other cities that will be added to his tour roster included Baltimore, MD; Newark, NJ; and Albany, NY.
The dates are part of West's first solo tour in five years. Rapper Kendrick Lamar joined West on most of the 2013 tour dates. However, the Yeezus Tour proved to be challenging when it suffered a setback in November. West had to postpone and cancel several tour dates due to equipment that was damaged.
The 2013 Yeezus tour was the second highest grossing tour of 2013. See below for the 2014 U.S. dates and visit the Kanye West page for more information on tickets (which officially go on sale Jan. 10).
