In 2007, ticket sales accounted for $3.9 billion, with more than 30,000 shows reported to Pollstar in North America. Last year's top-selling tour, The Police, grossed $133.2 million. The average tour ticket price last year was $62.07, a $0.49 increase from 2006; in 1996, a ticket averaged about $26. Apparently, concertgoers are still willing to shell out big bucks to see their favorite artist — perhaps because that P.A. bass-end thump just isn't the same over an iPod.
