StubHub has revealed its list of the top 10 tours of this summer, and U2‘s just-launched trek celebrating the 30th anniversary of its classic album The Joshua Tree tops the tally. The list is based on total sales on the ticketing platform for U.S. tour dates from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
It’s no surprise that the Irish rock legends are this summer’s most in-demand act, considering that their tour features them playing The Joshua Tree in its entirety for the first time ever live. Not only that, but U2’s June 3 Chicago date is the most in-demand concert of the summer.
Other veteran acts on the StubHub summer tour list include Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers at #4 and ex-Pink Floyd singer/bassist Roger Waters at #10.
Among the most in-demand summer festivals are the BottleRock Napa in Napa, California, The Classic East in New York City and The Classic West in Los Angeles.
The BottleRock Napa fest, which features Petty & the Heartbreakers among its headliners, is #2. Sister festivals The Classic East and The Classic West, which both will feature The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire, land at #4 and #5 on the tally, respectively.
The #1 most in-demand festival is the country-centric CMA Music Fest in Nashville.
Here is StubHub’s full list of the top 10 tours of the summer:
2. Ed Sheeran
3. Bruno Mars
4. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
5. Lady Gaga
7. Kendrick Lamar
9. Justin Bieber
