Hot Tours: Enrique Iglesias, Tears for Fears, Tiesto

Singer Enrique Iglesias performs onstage during the 11th annual Latin GRAMMY Awards at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on November 11, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Enrique Iglesias lands at No. 1 on this week's Hot Tours recap with more than $7.2 million in grosses reported from the final nine dates on his Euphoria Tour that ended in early November. The final leg of the tour wound through North American markets during September and October before wrapping at New York City's Madison Square Garden with a crowd of 13,199 on Nov. 4. With ticket prices ranging from a low of $29.50 to a top price of $150, the $1.3 million gross at the Manhattan arena was tops among the venues reported during the past week. The Miami market produced the largest attendance total, however, with 14,445 in the house for a single performance on Oct. 22. San Antonio's AT&T Center was the other venue that drew a 14,000-plus crowd, as 14,301 fans filled the arena on Oct. 13 to see the Spanish recording artist. Pitbull and Prince Royce provided support during the tour's final North American leg that played to sellout crowds in all markets.

Veteran English band Tears For Fears scores a second place ranking this week with $2.7 million in ticket sales totals from its trek through South American countries during the fall. A Sept. 28 performance at Explanada del Estadio Monumental in Lima, Peru is the first of the nine concerts reported by Latin American concert promoter T4F. Following the Lima event, the band performed in Chile on Sept. 30 at the Movistar Arena in Santiago with 4,609 in attendance. The sole concert in Argentina was held in Buenos Aires at Luna Park on Oct. 2, followed by a string of six shows in Brazil. The largest single-show attendance total came in Rio de Janeiro at the 8,500-seat Citibank Hall. The band played to a crowd of 7,736 in Rio on Oct. 8.

Tiësto is No. 3 this week with gross and ticket sales counts reported from performances at venues in the U.S., Mexico and Colombia during September and October. Among the U.S. events was a sold out performance at San Diego's Valley View Casino Center on Oct. 2 with 6,043 in attendance. The Dutch DJ played to a crowd of 16,927 in Mexico City on Sept. 30 and to 6,546 fans on Oct. 14 in Bogotá.
