SAN FRANCISCO (CelebrityAccess) — StubHub has revealed its annual list of the top touring artists of 2016, with Adele, Justin Bieber and Bruce Springsteen topping the list.
Hot on their heels were Beyoncé, Drake and Billy Joel, who has played a record-string of sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden this year.
Also making the list this year were Coldplay, the recently reunited Guns n' Roses, Pearl Jam and Luke Bryan rounding out the top ten.
Top music events this year were dominated by music festivals with the mainstay festivals – Coachella and Lollapalooza – maintaining their top positions, and newcomer Desert Trip coming in with sales that rivaled both.
Overall, theatrical productions saw the most year-over growth in StubHub's figures, but concerts continued to generate the greatest amount of ticket sales for the ticket resale service, the company said. – Staff Writers
