    Has anyone checked out Pollstar's top 50 requested tours? No sign of the Sam and Dave shows when i'd expect them to be at least in the top 10..

    Any idea how the list is compiled?

    I don't have any idea myself. I'm very surprised to find artists like Cinderella on the list but not Sam & Dave.

    Those "top tours" lists usually get compiled based upon the number of searches people do for a particular act on the website. Not at all reflective of sales or true popularity. I would say the fact that Ticketmaster has it listed as a Hot Tour means more.
    "There's a Japanese term called wabi-sabi, not wasabi, but wabi-sabi. It means an appreciation for the imperfect, the less than precision. The cowboy boots that you never polish because it's bad luck. That is completely wabi-sabi. Van Halen is that." - DLR 2002<br /><br />"Look! I can see their parachutes!

    Gotcha. I never visit Pollstar, so I don't have any idea how they rank things.

    From Pollstar site:

    Artists are ranked by the number of times their itinerary is requested by fans visiting the Pollstar
    Web site on the Internet. This site receives more than 23 million hits per month. The Power Index is determined by ranking the artists as a percentage of the chart leader.
