Justin Timberlake is in da house! Resuming his Man of the Woods tour after a forced two-month break due to a bruised vocal cord, pop’s biggest male act is back to form and taking over our Hot Tickets chart.
Three stops landed in the Nos. 1, 2 and 3 slots on this week’s top capacity chart, proving that Timberlake’s lost no steam as a big draw while he was recuperating.
Timberlake grossed $2,518,529 at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., with attendance of 17,227 and a ticket range of $53-$228.50. His show at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C., grossed $2,512,845, and his performance at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., grossed $2,341,846. Timberlake’s tour is promoted by Live Nation Global Touring.
“Dancing With the Stars,” the stage show that features the dancers from the long-running TV competition, sashayed into three spots on our charts this week.
Two shows at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., claimed No. 2 on the 5,001-10,000-capacity chart with a gross of $514,980 and attendance of 11,444, with an average ticket costing $45. The show was promoted in-house.
The show’s stops at Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte and Township Auditorium in Columbia, S.C., took the Nos. 3 and 5 spots among venues with a capacity of 5,000 or less.
