Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, The Venitian, Las Vegas.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill launched their Soul2Soul World Tour April 7, at the Smoothie King Center, New Orleans. This is the third co-headlining tour for McGraw and Hill who, when collaborating, are undeniably at their best. The iconic country music duo ranked on our Hot Tickets chart this week after performing to a packed house May 27, at the Moda Center, Portland, Ore., grossing nearly $1.2 million with ticket prices ranging from $70-$120. The real-life married couple will be celebrating their 21st wedding anniversary on the road shortly before wrapping up their world tour at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, N.Y., Oct. 27.

For its third year in a row, bands such as Zapp, Chocolate Milk, The S.O.S Band, Slave and Evelyn Champagne King, performed at the 2017 OC Funk Fest, which kicked off the summer with some old school funk at the Pacific Amphitheatre, Costa Mesa, Calif., June 10. The Curious Entertainment-promoted event saw ticket prices ranging from $45-$200 and grossed over $500,000. The assembly of funk bands entertained a full house with their infectious grooves transporting their fans back to the 70s and 80s for the entire 11-hour event. Due to another successful year, plans for the 2018 OC Funk Fest are already in the works.
