Cher impacts the Jan. 11-dated Hot Tours recap at No. 2, while infusing the Boxscore chart with nine entries. The final 2019 dates of her ongoing Here We Go Again Tour earned $14.1 million and sold 109,521 tickets according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore.

Dotting the Boxscore chart with 9 million-plus engagements, Cher ranks highest at No. 3 with a two-night stint at New York's Madison Square Garden on Dec. 3-4. She earned $3.8 million and sold out at 27,495 tickets over both nights at the Manhattan arena, while breaking the $1.5 million mark with single-night stops throughout Texas at Houston's Toyota Arena, San Antonio's AT&T Center and the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Cher's final dates of 2019 raised the diva's calendar-year gross to $108.2 million, making it the biggest year of her touring career in Boxscore history. Her previous bests were in 2002 and 2003, the first years of the Living Proof Tour, when she grossed $75.4 million and $68.5 million, respectively.

The towering nine-figure 2019 total comprises $98.6 million from the Here We Go Again Tour plus $9.6 million from the ongoing Classic Cher residency at MGM's Park Theater in Las Vegas.

The Abba-inspired worldwide Here We Go Again trek began with a sweep through Australia and New Zealand on Sept. 21, 2018 and has amassed $112.5 million to-date. The tour's $1.4 million average-per-night gross is the highest of Cher's career, though it trails the Living Proof Tour's total $192.5 million over 273 reported dates in 2002-05. The Here We Go Again Tour continues with 26 scheduled dates in March, April and May.

Classic Cher began on Feb. 8, 2017, and has six more shows scheduled in February. With over 100 performances on the books, the residency has earned $51.6 million so far.

Following Cher with seven engagements on this week's Boxscore chart and a No. 3 rank on the Hot Tours listing, Jonas Brothers also close out their biggest year yet with a nine-figure total, grossing $109.7 million in 2019.
