P!NK

The singer returns to the tally thanks to four dates at the Perth Arena in Perth, Australia.

P!nk kicks off the latest leg of her Beautiful Trauma tour with a bang, as the first four shows of her Oceania tour -- all at the Perth Arena in Perth, Australia -- earned $7.6 million, according to box office stats reported to Billboard. (See Hot Tours list below.)

The four-show sellout run kicked off July 3 and concluded July 7, with a total of 59,553 tickets sold.

The Live Nation-promoted tour follows the singer’s successful U.S. leg from March to June that earned over $100 million throughout 46 performances.

Her tour continues throughout the summer, culminating with six nights in Auckland, New Zealand, between Sept. 4-11, and also includes a nine-night run at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

Meanwhile, Dead & Company’s tour of the western United States returns to Hot Tours, led by the band’s two-night stint at Boulder, Colorado's Folsom Field July 13-14. The shows earned $5.4 million in gross sales with 62,904 tickets sold between the two dates.

Across the eight shows, performed between June 30-July 14, the band earned $13.8 million in gross sales with 185,172 tickets sold.

With the conclusion of the 24-show tour, Dead & Company amassed $35.2 million from 495,624 ticket sales, including one sellout at Coastal Credit Union Music Park in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The highest-grossing show on the latest Hot Tours is held by Taylor Swift, whose pair of July 13-14 shows at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia leads the list with nearly $12 million in gross sales spread out over 107,378 tickets sold.

Meanwhile, Beyonce & Jay-Z lead the ranking thanks to $27.1 million in gross sales from six new shows reported from the pair’s European tour.
