As promised last month, there have been some changes to the Top 10. From this point forward, all events will be included in the tally, not just concerts. Let's get on with it.
Topping the list this month is the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. The famous circus had a convincing lead in ticket sales compared to all other events, thanks to its multiple concurrent tours and affordable prices. It accounts for nearly 20% of tickets sold for the events in this month's Top 10.
Following that are many of the concerts seen before in previous Top 10 lists, including Jason Aldean, One Direction, Bruce Springsteen, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, and the KISS & Mötley Crüe tour. Finally, representing theater are the ever-popular Wicked, The Book of Mormon, and Cirque du Soleil - Dralion.
