Chris Brown flying high at Honda Center, Anaheim, Calif.

Promoting his anticipated new album “Heartbreak On A Full Moon,” Chris Brown wrapped up his two-month Party tour May 23, but not before making a stop on our Hot Tickets chart with a performance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, May 20. Despite a turbulent relationship with the media over the past few years, he mesmerized the 8,100 fans with his Michael Jackson-like dance moves, aerial acrobatics and high-energy choreography. Fabolous, O.T. Genasis and Kap G also joined the Grammy award-winning artist onstage. The Live Nation-promoted show grossed over $600,000 with ticket prices ranging from $40-$250.

Shawn Mendes, the 18-year-old Canadian heartthrob, kicked off the Illuminate World Tour April 27, at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow, Scotland. This is the third tour for Mendez, as well as his first all-arena tour, which includes 21 shows in Europe and 29 North American shows. The singer-songwriter popped up on our chart this week after attracting a near-capacity crowd and grossing over $800,000 at Hallenstadion, Zurich, Switzerland, May 14. North American fans can catch up with Mendes on July 6, at the Moda Center, Portland, Ore.
