After launching in October 2019, the Bandsintown + Billboard touring indexes went on a hiatus for much of the worldwide concert shutdown. For more than a year, Bandsintown tracked the most engaged artists around in the world in the livestream space, as the face of live performance morphed to adapt to the ever-changing conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, with the fall concert schedule heating up stateside and internationally, the original quartet of indices return to track the hottest trending tours around the world.
The Bandsintown + Billboard Index includes four 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.
