Bruce Springsteen Is Christmas #1 On Stereoboard’s Hot Ticket Chart Of 2016

Merry Christmas everyone! Now, take a sip of that bucks fizz, pop on those new slippers you’ve been given and settle in for the top 10 of Stereoboard’s Hot Ticket Chart of 2016.  With a year of relentless touring under his belt, following the release of ‘The Ties That Bind: The River Collection’ last December, Bruce Springsteen has taken the top spot from last year’s chart queen Adele, who this year is sitting pretty in second place. But not content with a year full of shows, being awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom last month and releasing his autobiography, Born To Run, in September, he will hit the road again with the E Street Band in 2017 for a run of Australian dates during January and February.

Amazingly Coldplay find themselves in exactly the same position they were in on last year’s chart, #3, though this time they are sharing the top five with cockney comedian Micky Flanagan and Canadian rapper Drake, whose fourth album, ‘Views’, reached #1 on the UK album chart this spring. Having announced the end of his retirement and live return earlier this year Phil Collins finds himself at #6 on the chart, followed by pop superstar Justin Bieber, who next summer will play three huge UK and Ireland shows.

Reunited rock legends Guns N Roses are at #8, having recently announced three UK shows as part of the European leg of their Not In This Lifetime tour. Following closely behind them are Take That, who will support their forthcoming new album, ‘Wonderland’, with a spring UK arena tour, which will include six nights at the O2 in London. Taking up the final space on the top 10 of the chart is Beyoncé, who led the recent Grammy nominations for her album ‘Lemonade’.

So, as the countdown of the year’s top 50 best-selling artists on Stereoboard’s Hot Ticket Chart draws to a close, if you missed them, check out Parts OneTwoThree and Four.
