Lumineers Hit Career Highs On Current Tour
The Lumineers have one of the hottest tours on the road right now, according to Billboard Boxscore. The alternative folk rockers made Number Two on the site's most recent tally, with eight shows on their current North American tour raking in some $5.6 million and selling nearly 94,000 tickets.
The band is posting career-best numbers on the road, including huge two-night stands in Chicago and New York City. Those shows alone became the second and third-highest earning engagements of the band’s career off a $1.7 million and $1.6 million gross respectively. When averaged out, the group’s 2020 shows are their biggest ever.
So far, the band’s 14 U.S. shows in 2020 have totaled $8.9 million and 150,943 tickets sold. The III: The World Tour trek lasts throughout much of 2020, with 43 North American dates and a handful of international shows still yet to come. With ticket sales climbing and 50 shows left in 2020, the tour is headed toward a $35-million-plus finish.
The Lumineers are touring behind their third studio album, aptly titled III, which arrived last year. The set features the chart-topping alternative hit "Gloria," as well as the new single "Life In The City," which is currently Number Five on the same survey.
