January 5th, 2007

Concert tour trade publication Pollstar has once again published its annual list of highest grossing tours in North America and once again DMB has made the top ten, this time coming in ninth with a whopping $51.3 million in gross ticket revenue. Coming in first place with 138.5 million was The Rolling Stones.

DMB’s 2005 gross was $57 million and ranking of eighth, but Pollstar editor Gary Bongiovanni says that Charlottesville’s most famous musical export this year reaffirmed their status as one of America’s biggest bands. “It’s worth noting that their ticket prices, which averaged $46.64, were significantly cheaper than everyone else in the top 10,” he says. “It comes down to the fact that they’re a great live band, and their audience enjoys seeing them live because it’s not a cookie cutter experience every night.”
