My Chemical Romance bounds onto the Bandsintown + Billboard Touring Indexes following the recent announcement of their North American reunion tour -- after years of speculation and anticipation. They catapult to No. 5 on the Global Top Artists ranking (from No. 36) and to No. 3 on the U.S. Top Artists ranking (from No. 30).
The Bandsintown + Billboard Index includes four new weekly charts: Global Top Artists, U.S. Top Artists, Global Rising Artists, and U.S. Rising Artists. The Top Artists rankings include all acts with 250,000 or more Bandsintown trackers, while the Rising Artists lists feature acts with 10,000-249,999 trackers.
These weekly rankings are based on percentage growth in overall engagement during a rolling month, including new trackers, ticket clicks, and event RSVPs (all four indices will update weekly, using data from the previous 30 days). Fans can become a “tracker” of their favorite artists on bandsintown.com by searching for any given act. All artist pages host a complete touring schedule, links to music and merchandise, and allows fans to post show reviews. Each individual show listing has options to click through to purchase a ticket link (ticket clicks) in addition to links to RSVP within Bandsintown, by selecting “interested” or “going.”
