Rush's Clockwork Angels tour makes Pollstar's Top 200 North American Tours list

Tue, Jan 8, 2013@9:53AM | comments removed/disabled

Just last week the official Billboard Boxscore attendance and sales figures for all but one of the US dates on Rush's 2012 Clockwork Angels tour were released; only the Atlanta show numbers are still pending along with the 6 Canadian dates. 8 of the 28 shows reported were sell outs including Manchester, Bridgeport, Newark, Buffalo, San Jose, Universal City, Dallas and Houston. The highest-grossing date on the tour was the September 15th show in Chicago which grossed $1,113,292. The most-attended show was the sold out October 26th show in Buffalo where 13,215 fans filled the First Niagara Center. The total gross sales from these 28 shows comes out to just over $20.4 million. See the tour section for all the details. Yesterday Pollstar released their list of the Top 200 North American Tours of 2012 and Rush's Clockwork Angels tour made the cut at #33 with a total gross of $27.2 million. Pollstar's number is larger than the total of the 28 reported Boxscore shows, so they must also be including the missing Atlanta show and 6 Canadian dates somehow (either estimates or from some other source). You can view the entire Top 200 tours list at this location. Thanks to Sean for the heads up.
