The Rolling Stones top StubHub’s fifth annual list of most in-demand acts of the summer.
According to the online concert ticket seller, Rolling Stones concert tickets are selling the fastest, followed by Queen with Adam Lambert at number 2 and Paul McCartney third.
The Stones will kick off their 2019 No Filter Tour of North America on June 21 in Chicago. The tour was postponed from its initial April 20 launch date after singer Mick Jagger underwent heart surgery.
The rock icons lead the No. 2 act Queen by nearly 52% and have garnered as much in sales as Queen and Paul McCartney combined, StubHub says.
Ariana Grande is the top female on the list, coming in at No. 4 with 24 dates in the summer season. Shawn Mendes follows her at No. 5.
Billie Eilish and JoJo Siwa, at No. 6 and No. 7 respectively, are the first teenagers to make StubHub’s list. Meanwhile, Florida Georgia Line at No. 10 is the lone country act on the list.
“This summer music season stands out with the widest generational representation of artists we’ve ever seen at StubHub,” said Jeff Poirier, General Manager of Music for StubHub.
“Seeing veteran acts like The Rolling Stones, Queen and Paul McCartney top the list is something we’ve come to expect,” he added. “Coming off of BTS‘s reign at the beginning of the year, it’s refreshing to continue to see young faces and emerging genres drive significant demand as represented by Billie Eilish and JoJo Siwa’s presence on the list.”
