BTS tops list of Canada's best selling fall concerts

The list of hottest selling fall concerts in Canada is largely what you’d expect, with the exception of the top spot.

K-pop supergroup, BTS, claimed top spot on the list, ahead of iconic acts like Elton John, Paul McCartney and Fleetwood Mac.

The seven-piece boy band also beat out some of the most popular acts in music today, including Drake, Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars.

The numbers are based on total sales on StubHub for Canadian tour dates between Sept. 3 and Nov. 30.

BTS has an average ticket price of $258, edging out Elton John by $3 and Paul McCartney by $15.

Drake is well behind in fourth place at $160 per ticket and he’s also the only hip hop act on the list.

"As we see one legend wrap up a remarkable career with Elton John taking the number two spot, it is fascinating to watch the rapid rise of an entire genre in North America, as BTS represented our top selling fall concert act in Canada this year," said Jeff Poirier, GM of music and theatre for StubHub.

While many of these acts won’t make their way to B.C. this fall, Drake and Fleetwood Mac will both perform in Vancouver in November, while Foo Fighters had their show this past weekend.
