Barbra Streisand takes the No. 1 slot on Billboard’s latest Hot Tours recap (see list below) with $10.7 million in ticket sales earned at concerts in four U.S. markets during November and December. The sold out shows at arenas in Houston, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami were the only fall dates on the legendary artist’s The Music… The Mem’ries… The Magic! Tour that hit nine North American cities during the summer in August.
The tour’s opening trek ran for three weeks ahead of her Aug. 26 album release Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway. With the fall concerts added to the overall counts, the final box office gross reached $46 million from 177,524 sold seats at 14 concerts in 13 cities.
Kicking off the fall stint was a performance at the Toyota Center in Houston on Nov. 27, the singer’s first-ever concert in the city. With 11,591 fans in attendance, box office revenue surpassed $3 million to rank as the venue’s highest-grossing concert in 2016, according to Billboard Boxscore. Streisand also performed for the first time ever in Tampa, the next stop on the schedule, playing to a crowd of 10,035 at Amalie Arena on Nov. 30. With $2.4 million in sales, the sold out show was also the Tampa venue’s top-grosser this year.
