Disney on Ice, always a crowd-pleaser, skated to the top of our 5,001-10,000-capacity Hot Tickets chart this week with a stop at Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City. The OCESA/CIE-promoted family show sensation pulled in gross sales of $1,427,262 over 11 shows and saw attendance of 44,102, with a ticket range of $8.53-$90.29.

It was sweet love for Anita Baker, who pleased the adult concertgoers last week with two AC Entertainment-promoted shows at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, grossing $654,676. Attendance was 4,610, with a ticket range of $95-$350.
