While 2010 slowly winds down, the concert tours throughout the United States draw to a close. Hundreds of thousands of fans attended their favorite acts, out-bidding each other for the best seats in the house. Were they playing intimate shows this tour or were they playing stadiums? Were you sitting pit, stands, lawn, or nosebleeds?
Debates over the best place to see a show are as old as time. Basically, the only things that have changed since then are the ticket prices. Even in the midst of a recession, 2010 proved to be profitable year for the touring musician.
In the end, it wasn’t U2, Lady Gaga, or AC/DC that tops the charts, however. It was Mr. Jon Bon Jovi and his merry men that took the top spot.
Other bands that made the Top Ten Tours of 2010 were Black Eyed Peas, James Taylor and Carole King, The Eagles, Metallica, Dave Matthews Band and Paul McCartney.
This is [lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]Bon Jovi[/lastfm]’s second time in three years topping the chart. The only other bands to accomplish such a feat have been The Rolling Stones and The Grateful Dead.
