Tour Notes:

No stranger to Billboard’s Top 10 list of tours — this year marks the 10th year Chesney has been among the top 10 touring acts in his 25-year career — Chesney hit the road once again this year with 41 shows generating $114 million from just under 1.3 million (1,298,088) tickets sold. In terms of the sheer number of fans attending, Chesney drew bigger crowds than all other tours except Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Beyonce/Jay-Z and Bruno Mars. (On a related note, we should give a tip of the cowboy hat to fellow country artist Luke Bryan, who ranked among the top 10 ticket-sellers with the 935K fans attending his 2018 shows, but scored #17 on Billboard’s 2018 Top Tours chart with $67.5 million in revenues.)
