TicketNetwork Advisory -- Taylor Swift, TSO Lead September Concert Ticket Sales

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Oct 7, 2011) - Country artist Taylor Swift and holiday favorite Trans-Siberian Orchestra led ticket sales for September, according to data from the TicketNetwork Exchange*. Collectively the two acts sold more than 8% of all tickets. The other top ten artists and tours were the Honda Civic Tour with Blink-182 and My Chemical Romance, Jeff Dunham, Chris Brown, Journey, Sting, Bob Seger, Foo Fighters, and Incubus. The top ten acts sold more than 25% of all tickets on the Exchange in September.

Among the top ten, leaders Swift and TSO had average ticket prices of $150 and $113 respectively in September. They weren't the acts demanding the highest average price, however.

The average ticket price for the entire top ten was $129.
