Jackson Browne’s I’ll Do Anything Tour is in full swing with a performance at San Diego Civic Theatre on Aug. 12 making our Hot Tickets chart. With more than 2,700 fans in attendance, the Nederlander-promoted event grossed nearly $210,000 in ticket sales. With ticket prices ranging from $50 to $100, fans in attendance also had the option of buying VIP tickets or Guacamole Fund tickets for $250.

Browne’s next stop will be on Sept. 9 at PNC Pavilion, Cincinnati.
