Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias perform in concert at The Frank Erwin Center on Feb. 7, 2015 in Austin, Texas.

Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull lead the pack on the weekly tally of Hot Tours (see below), based on ticket sales from some of the final dates on the pair's co-headlining trek through North America. The tour wrapped on Nov. 22 after 35 concerts in two legs: a summer trek during June and a fall run in October and November. The overall box office take from the tour landed at just over $40 million from a total of 422,959 tickets sold.

The tour's opening trek through North American markets began with a June 3 concert in Chicago and ended on July 1 in New York. For the fall run, the artists resumed the tour on Oct. 3 in Washington, D.C., and finished for the year in Austin, Texas, on Nov. 22.

Of the 33 arenas booked, all hosted the tour for single shows, except for Madison Square Garden in New York and Toronto's Air Canada Centre, which each hosted the acts for two nights. MSG was the top grosser with sales reaching $2.6 million from 25,118 sold tickets on June 30 and July 1. Staples Center in Los Angeles was the top earner among the arenas with one show offered; revenue at the venue reached $1.8 million with an attendance count of 14,523, the highest single-show head count on the tour.

This jaunt marked the duo's second touring effort as co-headliners in North American cities. From fall 2014 through the first quarter of 2015, Iglesias and Pitbull grossed $41 million on their Time of Our Lives co-headlining run that was attended by 479,750 fans at 38 shows.
