Fleetwood Mac has ranked No. 6 on Pollstar’s Year End Top 20 Worldwide Tours, with total gross sales of $125.1 million and an average gross of $2 million per show. In 2015, the band took its ON WITH THE SHOW TOUR to U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
Ticket sales for Rumours-era lineup shows increased by 25%
Fleetwood Mac leads the latest slate of Boxscores at No. 1 based on ticket sales reported from a three-show engagement in Australia during the final leg of the band’s On With the Show Tour. The trek is the band’s first visit to Australia and New Zealand with its Rumours-era lineup since 1980.
Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, one of two Aussie venues to host the tour for three nights, logged $5.5 million from 37, 443 sold tickets at performances on Nov. 2, 4, and 6 to earn the top slot. Fans in the Sydney market also had three chances to see the tour in October at Allphones Arena. Reported in a previous week, the Sydney concerts on Oct. 22, 24, and 25 grossed $5.4 million from 39, 577 sold seats.
The group played the same two venues during its Unleashed Tour — without recent returning member Christine McVie — that covered North America, Europe, and Oceania in 2009. The Sydney venue, then dubbed Acer Arena, hosted the band for two concerts during the final leg of the tour that launched in Melbourne on Dec. 1. At each venue, both the gross and attendance increased with this year’s tour by about 25%.
Legendary rock band Fleetwood Mac are together again for their On With the Show tour, with Christine McVie rejoining Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks after a 16-year absence.
Having performed a “just about perfect” set in London and at the Isle of Wight, they’ll play songs from their four-decade long career. Through years of drugs and breakups, they’ve held onto friendship, and belted out dozens of hits, including The Chain, Dreams, Second Hand News, and Don’t Stop.
