US rockers Bon Jovi have this year’s highest grossing concert tour, according to a trade publication.
The veteran rock group sold $201 million worth of tickets for their ‘The Circle‘ world tour, Pollstar magazine reports. This comes as a surprise as the 2009 album did not shift copies very well.
Late December… the days are short (but getting longer) and cold as the year draws to an end. What better time than now to look back upon the past year and reminisce over some of the music related things that brought joy and warmth to our hearts over the last twelve months? So… in no particular order, here are 10 things I liked about music in 2010:
24 year old Lady Gaga’s “The Fame Monster” is officially the best selling album of 2010. After shifting an amazing 5.8 million copies worldwide it relegated Eminem’s chart topper “Recovery” to the runner up spot.
A rather dismal year in concert ticket sales is moving many concert promoters to promise more affordable gigs in the coming new year. This is a likely relief to music fans tight on cash as well as artists and venues who had to cope with half empty seats during the typically booming summer months which were hit with many cancellations this year.
2010 was a phenomenal year for indie icon Edwyn Collins. The former frontman of Scottish post-punkers Orange Juice released his seventh solo album in the UK to massive acclaim. Heralded by the British press as one of the best releases of the year, Losing Sleep will arrive on US shores March 22nd via Heavenly Recordings/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records. The record features tracks co-written with Johnny Marr, Roddy Frame, Alex Kapranos & Nick McCarthy of Franz Ferdinand, Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers, Ryan Jarman of The Cribs and The Drums and is the first album Edwyn’s written and recorded since his serious illness in 2005.
