2014 Most Popular Tours

chart

One Direction Winners

Nice year for One Direction, who took home a hefty load of change with their Midnight Memories tour, which I missed, though I do have a tix for their Four tour. I did see the Stone (in 2012) who made much more per show. 1D averaged 6.4M per show, the Stones a mindbending 7.5M . The sort of number that has you left with your mouth open.

All the numbers here are very tidy and cut across most demos like a steak knife. Country is hiding in the sidelines, four artists if you include the Eagles, nostalgia buffs rule, eight  if you include the Eagles, younger poptarts with seven upstarts (no, don’t include the Eagles) are well attended. Plus two wobblers, Robbie Williams and Michael Buble, just to keep us wondering.

I am surprised 1D have sustained it for so long, hand it to them for not imploding, not letting ego get in the way, maintaining a very high standard of quality all the way through and keeping in touch with their fans via Social Media: they have done everything the Jonas Brothers failed to do so a cycle before them and I would be very suprised if 5SOS mange to do so a cycle later. They did not become for Justin Bieber’s.

Also note, no new rock bands, rock as modern mainstream groove is kinda dead, and no major EDM stars, where is Avicii when you need him?
