Elton John was ranked No. 1 on StubHub‘s list of top U.S. Touring Artists Of 2019, followed by the Rolling Stones.
Elton’s long-running farewell tour and the rock icons’ latest trek significantly out-sell the rest on the list.
“The legends they are, fans flocked to see them throughout the entire year as they did with so many legacy rock acts,” said Jeff Poirier, general manager of music and theater for StubHub.
Ariana Grande and Luke Combs are the most contemporary acts on the list, and Grande is the only female act.
“It’s unusual that so few pop and contemporary acts hit the list this year. Ariana Grande and Luke Combs are the most contemporary acts represented in the top ten, but we do see a stronger presence if we expand our analysis to the top 15 acts where BTS, Florida Georgia Line and Lady Gaga show high demand,” Poirier added.
The seven-game World Series between the Nationals and the Astros was the top-selling U.S. event in 2019.
