Paul McCartney's Tour Makes a Big Jump on TicketNews' Top Event Rankings in June

After adding more tour dates to his North American Up and Coming Tour, Paul McCartney jumped 10 spots for a secon


VERNON, CT -- (Marketwire) -- 07/06/10 -- After adding more tour dates to his North American Up and Coming Tour, Paul McCartney jumped 10 spots for a second place finish on TicketNews' exclusive Top Event Rankings, as compiled from June 1-30.

Despite being outsold by the ever-popular musical "Wicked," former Beatle Paul McCartney made a strong showing in June's rankings. McCartney added new tour dates during the month, including second appearances in Toronto and Pittsburgh. Ticket onsales for those dates started in late June, and the tour begins July 10 at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Hip-hop heavyweights Jay-Z and Eminem had the strongest debut of the month with a fourth place finish in the rankings. High demand for tickets caused the duo to expand their co-headlining tour from two nights to four, playing hometown shows in Detroit on September 2-3 and New York City on September 13-14.

Dave Matthews Band almost cracked into the Top 10 June event rankings. Ticket sales for DMB's spring and summer tour began in February and placed the band at number 15 in the month's rankings, although the band quickly dropped out of the Top 20 in following months. But a recent announcement to go on hiatus in 2011 pushed DMB back into the May rankings at number 17, and now that their tour is underway, their ticket sales have surged and brought them to the 11th position on the list.
