TicketNetwork Advisory -- McCartney Shows Help Chicago Lead June Concert Ticket Orders

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - Jul 8, 2011) - Chicago, IL, had the most concert ticket orders during the month of June, according to the latest data from the TicketNetwork exchange*. The choice of Wrigley Field by former Beatle Paul McCartney as one of the stops on his summer tour helped propel the city to the top. Indeed, the overwhelming majority of orders for Chicago concerts, over 62%, were for McCartney's two shows on July 31 and August 1.

McCartney's popularity is such that the orders for his shows made him the top-selling performer for three other Top 10 cities for the period June 1 - June 30: Detroit, MI; The Bronx, NY; and Cincinnati, OH.

After Chicago, the city of Los Angeles, CA, came in a close second, led by the orders for the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra's July 4 special featuring Hall and Oates. The city's position was also secured by a steady stream of orders for Maná, Taylor Swift, and Katy Perry.

The other cities in the Top 10 are Las Vegas, NV; Toronto, Ontario; Clarkston, MI; and Holmdel, NJ.
