Take That perform at the 02 Arena, London.

Take That launched their Wonderland Tour, May 5, at the Birmingham (England) Genting Arena, promoting the Feb. 17 release of their Wonderland album. The English pop music group, along with light displays, a water show, circus-style acrobatics, seven costume changes and a giant flying swan, topped our chart this week after making a stop at The O2 Arena, London, England, June 6-12, surprising and entertaining over 100,000 fans with six shows grossing $9.5 million. The Wonderland Tour will continue throughout the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand; the band will wrap up Nov. 22, at The Trusts Arena, Auckland, New Zealand. Although Take That fans are missing two of the band’s original members, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams, there are rumors floating about that a full reunion of all five members may take place for the band’s 30th anniversary in 2020.

After keeping a low profile for the past few years, Chris Tucker passed through the Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Conn., May 27, landing on our Hot Tickets chart this week. Tucker brought his unique brand of comedy to a near-capacity crowd of 7,300, and with ticket prices ranging from $25-$45, grossed nearly $300,000. The comedian’s new stand-up tour will be stopping next Sept. 29, at the Wellmont Theater, Montclair, N.J.
