Marc Anthony heads up the weekly slate of top-grossing Hot Tours with ticket sales reported from a string of concerts in Mexican markets during May and June. The brief four-week swing was a continuation of the Latin pop star’s Vivir Mi Vida tour that was on the road last fall with jaunts through both North and South America.  Seven venues from the tour’s 2014 leg, produced by Latin American concert promoter OCESA, are included in this week’s tally, including two theaters that hosted the tour for two nights. Guadalajara’s Auditorio Telmex logged a solid ticket count of 14,520 for performances on May 21 and 22, and the tour played Mexico City’s Auditorio Nacional on June 2 and 3 with 18,189 fans in attendance. Sales at venues in all seven markets totaled $5.1 million from almost 60,000 sold seats.

Anthony kicks off a new tour this month titled Cambio de Piel. Named for his second single from the 2013 salsa album "Marc Anthony 3.0," the tour launches on June 27 and is set to play a handful of concerts in Colombian cities during the summer.  A North American leg will begin on August 29 in San Diego and will continue into the fall. 

Australian country artist Keith Urban grabs the second slot on the Hot Tours line up with revenue reported from a brief tour this month through his home country. Touring in support of his most recent studio album "Fuse," released last September, the four-time Grammy Award winner was booked to perform at four arenas and two outdoor concert sites during June. Two arenas on the schedule have reported box office stats from their concerts during the two-week trek. The Brisbane Entertainment Centre sold 14,623 tickets for shows on June 17 and 18, and Sydney’s Allphones Arena reported 19,868 tickets sold for their two-show run on June 21 and 22. The combined gross from both markets totaled $3.8 million. Urban’s Light the Fuse tour, produced by Aussie concert promoters Nine Live and Chugg Entertainment, wraps Down Under with a final show in Perth on June 29.

Florida Georgia Line lands at No. 3 with more than $3.2 million in sales from seven venues on its summer headlining tour dubbed This is How We Roll that kicked off the last weekend of May and wrapped on June 22. The first three shows on the tour were reported during a previous week, but this tally includes the box office stats from the final seven dates. The 10-city trek opened with an arena performance in Bossier City on May 29, but the rest of the concerts were held at outdoor venues, primarily minor league baseball stadiums. Rapper Nelly and country newcomer Chris Lane provided support for the tour that played to more than 115,000 fans.  The country duo will continue its busy summer on the road with appearances at various festivals and fairs as well as supporting Jason Aldean’s Burn It Down Tour that runs through the end of October.
