below is the list of top 100 tours of 08. the # beside each is the total # of tickets sold for the total tour in 08. of course, some bands didn't do as many dates .. so it's not a fair comparison, as it's the total # of tickets sold.

Prolly the Van Halen show Marty. Getting a chance to see Dave front again was priceless.

Upscope was not particularly fond of the Cruefest tour. VERY unhappy w/ the setlist.

For the most part though Upscope is usually not into the big production arena/stadium tours. Give him his small club shows with bands like LA. Guns, Ratt, Dokken, Dirty Penny, Pearcy Solo, EZN, George Lynch ect. ect. ect. & he is as happy as a pig in mud.

Actually, it was surprising to see Fag Jovi at the top of this list. They must have played a TON of dates.

Honestly, if you asked Upscope in advance he would have guessed Kenny Chesney or The Police would have topped the list??

VERY interesting ChucK. What would be even more interesting would be to see just how many dates each band played so you could get an accurate average??

That's cool Upscope I prefer small club shows too. I guess that is what I am use to so seeing Cruefest and all the big production was a nice change of pace. I can only imagine how much effects and back tracking they use. Rolling Eyes

That's a surprising list, Man. I wouldn't think half of those acts were even out there anymore!

Where's Bucket on that list?!?

Bon Jela are probably top due to the size of arenas they play. Not sure about in the US but when they tour the UK they only ever play football stadiums that can hold approx 80, 000 fans.
