Bachata Group Aventura Is Outselling Post Malone in U.S. Ticket Sales
Aventura’s reunion tour is doing very well in the U.S., further proving that the influence of Latin music in America is stronger than ever. The Romeo Santos-fronted group, which experienced stratospheric success in the early 2000s with the global bachata hit “Obsesión,” is now back on the road for the first time in 10 years.
The group just debuted at Number Three on Pollstar’s LIVE75 Chart — a list that ranks worldwide active tours by the average tickets sold — for the week of March 2nd. Based on six sold-out shows in markets that include Chicago and Houston, the band is raking in an average of $1.84 million per gig. Based on five shows, the average gross is higher than modern superstar Post Malone’s current number of $1.74 million. The only tour that’s currently pulling in a greater per-show gross, according to Pollstar’s chart figures, belongs to rock legacy band the Eagles.
