'Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together' Concert: Christina Aguilera, Bruce Springsteen to Perform

The legendary Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band take the No. 1 slot on the Hot Tours chart with ticket revenue reported from five venues as the Wrecking Ball World Tour winds its way through Europe heading into the month of July. Stadium concerts in Italy, Spain and the U.K. are included in this week's tally, along with an indoor performance at an arena in France. The top attendance among the stadium shows came from the Madrid market with 54,639 tickets sold at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, the second largest stadium in Spain with a seating capacity of 85,450. Gross revenue from the sold out concert in Madrid on June 17 was €3.9 million ($4.9 million US$). Another stadium performance a week earlier in Italy was also a sellout. More than 28,000 fans filled Stadio Nereo Rocco in the northeastern Italian city of Trieste for a concert on June 11. The two English stadiums on the schedule were Stadium of Light in Sunderland and the City of Manchester Stadium with concerts held on June 21 and 22. The sole indoor performance among this week's venues was a sold out concert on June 19 at the 14,000-seat Park&Suites Arena in Montpellier, France. Overall, box office grosses from the five venues included in this week's totals top $16.8 million from 190,147 sold seats. Since the Wrecking Ball Tour launched in March, ticket sales revenue is already at the $80 million mark from 34 reported shows.

Franco De Vita and Jennifer Lopez both earn a spot among this week's 10 top-grossing tours with box office grosses from concerts in Venezuela reported by promoter Evenpro/Water Brother. Latin singer De Vita, a native of Caracas, ranks No. 3 this week with $1.7 million in revenue from two concerts, a June 10 performance at UNIMET (Universidad Metropolitana) in Caracas and a concert on June 14 at Centro Ítalo in Puerto Ordaz. Lopez takes the No. 4 slot on Hot Tours with $1.7 million in ticket sales from a performance on June 16 in Valencia.
