The PAW Patrol Live! tour rolled onto our Hot Tickets chart twice this week with shows at both the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., July 22-23, and David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, Tampa, Fla., July 29-30, with eight shows respectively. These four-legged heroes are making their way across North America with two different shows included in the tour: PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” and PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure.” The music-filled, action-packed shows feature more than a dozen characters straight out of the hit preschool series PAW Patrol, who share lessons about social skills, problem solving and citizenship. All eight shows grossed a combined total of $750,000 with 16,000 PAWsome fans in attendance.

Music icon k.d.lang made an appearance on our chart this week with two sold-out performances, July 26-27, at ICC Sydney Theatre, with ticket prices ranging from $111-$182, grossing nearly $1.4 million. The Canadian songbird is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her debut, all-original album “Ingenue” with her Ingenue Redux Tour. Lang is currently taking her tour through Canada, and can be seen next at the Royal Theatre, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
