Aerosmith perform onstage during the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Aug. 20, 2018 in New York City.

With reports of six recent dates at the Park Theater in Las Vegas, Aerosmith’s Deuces Are Wild residency dominates the Current Boxscore chart at Nos. 1 and 3 and steals the No. 2 spot on the Hot Tours ranking dated Oct. 19, 2019. According to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore, the band’s run from Sept. 21 to Oct. 6 grossed $6.5 million and sold 29,805 tickets.

The six dates are reported in groups of three, separated by calendar month. The Sept. 21, 23, and 28 shows ($3.4 million; 15,132 tickets) marks Aerosmith’s first engagement atop the Boxscore chart since the April 30, 2007-dated tally with a performance at Estadio River Plate in Buenos Aires, Argentina ($3.9 million; 71,871 tickets), and their fifth chart-topping appearance overall.

These new reports, in addition to updates from earlier in 2019, push the residency’s totals to $35.6 million in grosses and 163,820 tickets sold since opening on April 6. The enduring rock superheroes have played 25 shows at their Vegas home base, plus a smattering of shows at other MGM locations around the country (three at The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Oxon, Md., two at Atlantic City's Borgata Casino and four at MassMutual Center in Springfield, Mass.). That means the residency has averaged $1.045 million per show, helping set a new seven-figure standard in Las Vegas alongside 2019 residencies by Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars.

Deuces Are Wild pushes Aerosmith’s reported career earnings further into the stratosphere. Including their portion of a co-headline run with KISS and one co-billed date with Post Malone earlier this year, their total gross climbs to $514.9 million from 9,208,421 tickets sold. They are the 10th rock band in the history of Billboard Boxscore to cross the half-billion threshold, joining Bon Jovi, Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Depeche Mode, Eagles, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, The Rolling Stones and U2 (Phish’s reported career total stands at $499.4 million).
