Concert tour revenue, ticket sales fall in 2010

Gross revenues and total ticket sales from concert tours were down considerably in 2010 as the faltering economy and a glut of overpriced shows shunned by fans cast doubt on the music industry's last sure bet.
Pollstar year-end numbers show overall grosses for the top 50 tours worldwide fell 12 percent to $2.93 billion and ticket sales dropped 15 percent or about 7 million from 2009's 45.3 million.
Estimates from the touring industry trade magazine show Bon Jovi pulled in more than $201 million worldwide to land 2010's top tour. AC/DC was next ($177 million), followed by U2 ($160 million), Lady Gaga ($133 million) and Metallica ($110 million) rounded out the top five.
Pollstar reported ticket prices were the only number to increase from 2009 to 2010: Up $2.86 or about 4 percent.
