*65 arena concert dates (51 in Europe + 14 in North America) with over 900k tickets sold plus one UEFA EURO 2016 France special football fan-zone gig in Paris with 50k tickets sold on 28 June 2016

Note: Pollstar will likely release its 2016 Mid-Year Top 100 worldwide tours list next month so the rankings and ticket sales revenue figures above could change somewhat.
