StubHub revealed its fourth-annual preview of the summer concert landscape on Wednesday (May 30), breaking down the summer's most in-demand touring acts on the secondary ticket marketplace. Taylor Swift took the No. 1 slot for top selling acts overall, while Ed Sheeran ranked first in most sales per show.

Leading the way among top selling acts overall at No. 2 were the Eagles, followed by Harry StylesBeyoncé and JAY-ZFoo Fighters and Kenny Chesney, in that order. U2 -- last summer’s list-leader -- was No. 7, trailed by Journey and Def Leppard at No. 8., Radiohead at No. 9 and Sam Smith, rounding out the top 10.

Nostalgia acts were also a significant portion of the summer touring landscape, with acts who came to prominence in the 1990s making a particularly notable impact -- Foo Fighters, Kenny Chesney, Radiohead and Pearl Jam among them.

I think he's liberal, I could be wrong though.

 

There's also rumors he's gay too lol, but that's more cause he isn't married.
