The summer of 2019 rolls along and so does the music business. From the always touring Kiss to the always touring Elton John, Pollstar released their top 100 top grossing tours (So Far) of 2019 as of May 22, 2019.
Speaking of high; I’ve had the pleasure of being on a coffee high while on tour with 2 from the top 100 thus far with rarely a moment to catch a show from the other 98. The summer continues with Korn/Alice in Chains, Muse, More Kiss, More Elton, More Metallica, more more more!
Where will you be heading to watch your favourite bands? Europe, Canada, United States or are you stuck to your couch since Canada legalised weed and happy to watch the next 10 clips of the top 10 grossing tours?
I’m quite sure I know Todd Hancock from Toddcast Podcast, Dean Blundell and Cannibis Phils’ answers here…..
