Keith Urban owns this week's No. 1 Hot Tours ranking with $5.6 million in box office grosses from two venues on his seven-date tour through Australia which occurred earlier this year.  The award-winning country star played multiple shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne on the Story So Far Tour that kicked off on Jan. 25 at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.  This week's tally includes the reported totals from Brisbane's three shows with 25,530 tickets sold for all performances (Jan. 25-26, Feb. 5).  Also in the mix is the two-night run in Sydney with 24,294 fans in attendance at Allphones Arena on Jan. 30-31.

Six other touring artists join Urban on the list of 10 top-grossing tours thanks to box office stats from Australian venues during the first quarter of the year.  KISS takes the second place ranking with $5.6 million in revenue from three markets during a two-week trek with Mötley Crüe that kicked off on Feb. 28.  Reported totals from the Monster Tour's stops at Perth Arena, as well as the aforementioned Brisbane and Sydney arenas, contribute to the act's runner-up ranking. 

Following at No. 3 is Barry Gibb with two nights in Brisbane on Feb. 16 and 19, and Guns N' Roses at No. 4 with shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Newcastle.  Neil Young & Crazy Horse (No. 5), Russell Peters (No. 7) and blink-182 (No. 9) all rank with ticket sales counts from venues Down Under.

Dutch EDM artist Tiësto enters the weekly Hot Tours chart at No. 8 with grosses totaling $1.6 million from venues in Mexico, United Arab Emirates and India.  The top gross and attendance counts come from Mumbai with 8,899 tickets sold at the Royal Western Turf Club for an outdoor event on March 29.  Since the beginning of the year, Tiësto's sales revenue is more than $4.9 million from 111,488 tickets at 22 performances, with the highest 2013 box office result coming from Staples Center in Los Angeles with a sellout crowd of 12,117 in attendance on March 2.  The performance grossed $666,672 and featured Australian DJ Tommy Trash and DJ Alvaro from the Netherlands as support acts.
