Little Mix perform at the F1 Live in London event at Trafalgar Square on July 12, 2017 in London. 

British girl group Little Mix hit the road in May with concerts booked in Europe through mid-July, including headlining performances at 15 U.K. venues during the eight-week stretch.

Based on ticket sales reported during the past week by the London-based Solo Agency, the pop quartet's Glory Days Tour earned £9.3 million ($11.9 million USD) from U.K. shows alone, including three early September engagements that completed the summer run. The overall number of sold tickets during the trek totaled 270,495. With those box office counts, the group heads up the tally of the week’s highest-grossing Hot Tours (see list below).

Touring this year in support of its November 2016 release, Glory Days, Little Mix also included a six-city trek to Australia and New Zealand on the schedule during the last two weeks of July. So far only one of those dates has been reported to Billboard: a July 28 performance at Brisbane’s Entertainment Centre. The sold out concert in Brisbane drew a crowd of 7,403 and grossed $526,010.

The Glory Days Tour will begin a second stretch through U.K. markets -- along with a show in Dublin -- later this fall on Oct. 9. Several of the arenas are set to host the group for multiple performances during the jaunt including matinee and evening concerts on the same day. A total of 37 shows are booked at 13 venues during the seven-week span. Little Mix will remain on the road through Nov. 26.
