TicketNetwork Advisory -- 2010 Bows Out With Lady Gaga in the Lead

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - December 23, 2010) - The 2010 concert year will end with Lady Gaga [tickets] leading a crowded pack of pop, rock, and R&B artists and bands, according to data from the TicketNetwork exchange.* Among the top ten acts, the Monster Ball Tour accounted for over 15% of ticket sales.

Although Lady Gaga easily outstripped the rest of the top ten in terms of ticket sales, her lead did not hold up as well from month to month. For example, the pop singer was often challenged by relative newcomer Justin Bieber, who took over the lead from August to October. Likewise, ticket sales for tours by Paul McCartney and Roger Waters forced Gaga out of the top spot at the end of spring.

Below are the top ten concert artists for 2010, ranked by total ticket sales:
