I'm completely unsurprised that Taylor Swift once again has a commanding lead in ticket sales on TN.com. She's been on the top of our bi-weekly Top 5 on the rest of the site all month, and so long as Red continues to dominate the charts, people won't forget about the tour quickly. Swift has also done something that only one other act, Justin Bieber, has done: claim the top spot for two consecutive months. Not even One Direction, despite all its time on the list, achieved that (though it did top the list for two non-consecutive months).
Speaking of Bieber, guess who's back! Thanks to the addition of summer dates to his tour, Bieber was able to skyrocket back to the Top 2. We'll see if it can be sustained, but I'm not optimistic, given how he dropped off the list in November. Meanwhile, Kenny Chesney also returns to the list in a big way, due to ticket sales for his new tour, and Wicked, The Book of Mormon, Jeff Dunham, and One Direction are hanging in there.
