POTW: Katy Perry, Gaga, Bieber and more '2011 Billboard Music Awards' Finalists
Roger Waters, nominated for 2011 Billboard Music Awards' Top Touring Artist, rocks out on "The Wall Live" at 02 Arena on May 11, in London.

Legendary rock star Roger Waters tops the Hot Tour ranking this week with $25.2 million in box office grosses reported from Australia and New Zealand during The Wall Live Tour's trek down under in January and February. Promoted by concert promoter Michael Coppel Presents, Waters played five markets beginning with a two-show stint at Burswood Dome in Perth, Western Australia on Jan. 27-28. The 13,600-seat indoor sports arena sold 19,523 tickets for both performances. Playing to sellout crowds in all five markets, Waters began February with a three-show run at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, drawing 25,359 fans on Feb. 1, 2 and 4. In four shows at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne (Feb. 7-8, 10-11), ticket sales were 38,586. Sydney followed with 22,994 in attendance at Allphones Arena on Feb. 14 and 15, and the tour leg wrapped at Auckland's Vector Arena with 39,096 tickets sold for performances on Feb. 18, 20, 22 and 23. The tour then headed to Chile at the beginning of March and is currently on a swing through Latin America with performances scheduled in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. The Wall Live Tour will return to the U.S. on May 1 with a North American leg that is booked through mid-July.

Cirque du Soleil's production dubbed Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour lands in the second spot on Hot Tours following last week's debut appearance at No. 1. This week's totals come from arenas in two Florida markets, Orlando and Miami. $6.4 million was the overall ticket sales total from multiple performances at both venues. Orlando's Amway Centerhosted the show for two nights with 19,288 tickets sold. The performances on Feb. 28 and 29 grossed $2.2 million with tickets priced from a low of $50 to the top price of $250. The American Airlines Arena in Miami hosted the tour on March 2 and 4 with the same range in ticket pricing. The 19,500-seat arena sold 35,105 tickets for both performances, grossing more than $4.2 million at the box office. The Cirque du Soleil touring production features the music and dance of the late King of Pop.
