Cirque du Soleil's concert touring production, Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour ranks No. 1 on this week's Hot Tours ranking with box office totals reported from an multi-show run in London during October.  The O2 Arena hosted the tour for eight nights (Oct. 12-14, 16-17, 19-21), selling out every show and amassing a combined attendance count of 78,777 for the run. The overall gross was £4.5 million ($7.2 million US$) for the Live Nation-promoted production. 

Since launching its North American leg in Oct. 2011, the Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour has played to more than 1.5 million people with ticket sales revenue topping $163 million.  The London run kicked off the tour's European leg with dates booked until Dec. 29.  The 2013 schedule begins in Russia in January and continues through April.

During the past week, Latin American concert promoter OCESA reported box office gross and attendance counts for touring artists who have been on the road this fall in Mexico.  Four of those artists land on this week's Hot Tours recap.  Ranking fourth is Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz with $3 million in ticket sales at two venues.  On Oct. 13, he played to a crowd of 47,144 at Mexico City baseball stadium, Foro Sol with a gross of 24.7 million pesos ($1.9 million).  Two shows in Monterrey's 8,000-seat indoor amphitheater, Auditorio Banamex drew a total of 13,391 attendees on Oct. 19 and 20.

Alejandro Fernández takes the No. 8 slot among the top-grossing tours of the week with ticket sales totaling $2.2 million at two Mexican venues.  On Sept. 7 and 8 he performed at Arena VFG, the Guadalajara arena named in honor of his father, legendary ranchera singer Vicente Fernández.  Attendance at the arena totaled 19,078 for both performances.  He also played two shows in Monterrey's Auditorio Banamex with 13,348 tickets sold for both nights, Oct. 5 and 6.

Rounding out the OCESA tours in the top 10 is Spanish rocker Enrique Bunbury who ranks No. 9 with $1.3 million in ticket sales from three concerts in Mexican venues during September.  He performed in Guadalajara on Sept. 8 at Auditorio Telmex, at Auditorio Banamex in Monterrey on Sept. 22 and at Mexico City's Sports Palace on Sept. 28. 

Following Bunbury at No. 10 is pop group Big Time Rush who also performed at the same venues in Mexico City and Monterrey on Sept. 25 and 26.  An additional concert that occurred earlier in the month at i wireless Center in Moline, Ill. was also reported this week giving the Nickelodeon boy band a total gross of $1.3 million from all three shows.

People laugh when I explain. And though they may laugh, that doesn't change the fact that it's still the truth.
