Who was the top tour act this summer? It was Jimmy Buffett. He sold 100% of tickets offered and drew an average of 26,702 fans per show. That is about 2,000 more than PHISH, who had the second highest per show average.

How did KISS do.... Not so well. The averaged a shows that were only half full, about 8,400 fans per show.

But with the glut of shows available, several more experienced acts also had trouble moving tickets, including Linkin Park, Nickelback, Jewel, Rush, Chicago and Earth Wind & Fire.

"KISS may have rang that farewell tour bell one too many times," says Billboard 's Ray Waddell. "There were only two originals. And how many times can you go to the well without offering something new and different."
