Brent Smith and Zach Myers of Shinedown perform at the Rock Vegas Music Festival at Mandalay Bay on Sept. 28, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Heading up the list of touring artists on this week’s Hot Tours recap (see list, below) are Shinedown and Breaking Benjamin with sales topping $1 million from the final four venues on their North American co-headlining trek. On the road in support of recent albums -- Breaking Benjamin’s Dark Before Dawn that bowed in June and Threat to Survival, Shinedown’s September release -- the bands kicked off the tour on Oct. 16 at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. The final performance, a sellout on Nov. 24, was held in Portland, Maine, at Cross Insurance Arena.

With primarily arenas on the schedule, the tour grossed $5.7 million from 24 concerts reported to Billboard by promoters and venues. Overall attendance reached 136,969 with Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena logging the highest box office counts. The venue’s sellout crowd totaled 10,489 in Music City on Nov. 13, generating $437,957 in sales.

Following in the second slot on the Hot Tours tally is DJ and music producer Hardwell based on $942,760 in sales from a sold out event in San Francisco. The Dutch artist played two nights at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Nov. 13 and 14, drawing 14,496 EDM fans during the run. He also played the same venue one year ago, selling out a performance on Nov. 7, 2014 with 8,764 fans in attendance. Local Bay Area event producer, Another Planet Entertainment promoted the concerts in both years.

Odesza takes No. 3 on the Hot Tours ranking with $766,119 in sales reported from the North American leg of the electronic music duo’s In Return tour that launched in New Orleans on Oct. 30. Sold tickets totaled 31,977 from 15 sold out shows during the trek set primarily in clubs and theaters. Included was a three-show stint in New York City at Terminal 5 with a box office take of $225,126 from 8,406 sold tickets. The duo, Seattle-natives Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight, are booked in the U.S. through the end of the year, and South American and European dates are on the schedule for 2016.
