January's Top 10 Events

Hey, Ringling Bros. is #1 in the Top 10 again! That's four times in the last six months it has held the top spot. It would have had an overwhelming lead as well, if it weren't for Monster Jam, which was almost at the top but couldn't quite make it.

These two events show up in the top spots so often because, other than being popular in their own right, tickets are typically low-priced and many shows are available. In the case of January, the Ringling Bros. circus had a boost in ticket sales for events in Miami, FL; Charlotte, NC; Nashville, TN; and Birmingham, AL. Though Miami was the city with the most tickets sold, the biggest single event was the January 25 show in Nashville.
