Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull perform at Madison Square Garden on September 25, 2014 in New York City.  

Topping the weekly tally of Hot Tours (see list, below) are Enrique Iglesias and rapper Pitbull with $25.7 million in ticket sales from the 2014 leg of their joint tour through U.S. and Canadian markets.

Promoted by Concerts West, a division of AEG Live, the tour visited 21 cities during September and October, playing to more than 300,000 fans at 23 sold out performances. J Balvin provided support during the seven-week jaunt that wrapped at the end of October.

The co-headliners kicked off their tour on Sept. 12 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., the first of three arenas in the metropolitan New York/New Jersey area booked during the trek. The last performance on the fall jaunt occurred on Oct. 29 at Orlando's Amway Center, but the tour is not a wrap. Both headliners, along with Balvin, are set to hit the road again early next year beginning in El Paso, Texas, on Jan. 28.

Final numbers are in from Paul McCartney's 2014 North American leg of his Out There tour that ended Oct. 30 in Greensboro, N.C.

The rock legend still has a November swing through four Brazilian cities before the tour wraps in late November, but the final 21-city trek through the U.S. and Canada is in the books. Sales topped $61 million in North America this summer with 454,485 sold seats at 21 shows; $6.9 million of that total came from the last two American dates, reported this week by tour promoter Marshall Arts USA, earning Sir Paul the No. 2 slot on this slate of Hot Tours.

The Out There tour launched in May of last year and has been attended by more than 1.2 million fans at 49 concerts, based on ticket sales data reported to Billboard Boxscore. The tour's overall gross during its 18-month run currently totals $172.3 million.

Performances at three stadiums and one arena are on tap for the final South American leg that will run from Nov. 10 through 26. The final stop will be a two-show stand at Allianz Parque, São Paulo, Brazil's new football stadium, which can seat up to 55,000 for concerts.

Thirty Seconds to Mars lands on the Hot Tours recap at No. 6 with $1.5 million in sales from six Latin American dates reported this week by Miami-based promoter Move Concerts.

Touring in support of its 2013 album Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams, the band kicked off the tour in June of last year with treks through Europe, North America, Asia and Australia during a 17-month span. The Latin American leg began on Oct. 3 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and ended with a festival appearance an Oct. 26 in Panama. Overall Latin American ticket sales totaled $2.9 million from more than 50,000 sold tickets at 12 performances reported by the promoter. The ongoing tour is booked through April 2015 with upcoming dates set in South Africa and Europe.
