StubHub’s 20 Most Rockin’ U.S. Cities

August 14th, 2006

Jimmy Buffett continues to be one of the hottest tickets in all of music. Ticket marketplace StubHub has “put together a list of America’s 20 Most Rockin’ Cities. Shows in these cities have been the most active sellers on StubHub this summer with rankings based on total sales for concert events only, occurring between May 15th and September 15th.”

Additionally, StubHub has included the most popular show for each city that made the Top 20. New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago finished one, two and three respectively, and Madonna’s Confessions Tour was the top grossing act in each city. Interestingly, Madonna and Jimmy Buffett combined as the favorite shows for more than half of the cities in the top 20.

“Fan loyalty is a true indicator of quality performers. This summer has been filled with great concert tours and fans are showing their support in large numbers,” said Jeff Fluhr, founder and CEO. “Madonna is always a huge draw when she tours but the realization that Jimmy Buffett continues to pack ’em in across the country is eye-opening and a testament to his legions of fans.”

StubHub also notes that “Jimmy Buffett’s 20-stop tour has the highest per date average, based on total sales. Nationwide, the average price for a ticket has been $130.”
