With sold-out weekends of back-to-back shows the norm thus far on the critically-acclaimed Double Down Tour, multi-Platinum superstar Eric Church lands at the top of both Pollstar’s LIVE75 and Global Concert Pulse Charts this week.
According to Pollstar’s data, “Eric Church makes his stand at No. 1 [on the LIVE75 chart] with a ticket sales average of 13,987 from two-night engagements at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wis. on March 29-30, American Airlines Center in Dallas on April 12-13 and Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse (formerly Quicken Loans Arena) the following weekend.” This marks the second consecutive week Church has led the LIVE75.
On both charts, Church sits ahead of blockbuster tours by artists including Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Justin Timberlake, Metallica, Michael Bublé, Bob Seger, Cher and KISS, among others – all of which boast higher average ticket prices than the Double Down Tour. Church also stands as the only Country artist in the Top 15 of the Global Concert Pulse chart.
The loyal ticket-buying Church Choir fans aren’t the only ones loving the Double Down Tour concept boasting back-to-back nights in each city sans-opening act; critics have also praised Church at each stop for the success of unique approach. With newly-added fall dates, the booming success of the tour is poised to continue through the rest of the year.
