Re: 2010 - the yarbles fight back?
This North American ranking from Pollstar on the first half of 2010, top grossing acts (not necessarily highest attendace...)
1. Bon Jovi
2. James Taylor / Carole King
3. Taylor Swift
4. Paul McCartney
5. George Strait / Reba / Lee Ann Womack
6. The Black Eyed Peas
7. John Mayer
8. Tim McGraw
10. Michael Bublé
For as hot as she supposedly is, Lady Gaga is #65 on the list. :O
But also important to remember that these figures go from Jan 1 to June 30, and don't include much of the all-important summer tour revenues. It will be interesting to see how the year-end figures change the names and positions.
