If there’s one thing that we’ve been seeing lately, it is the fact that we love a good dose of nostalgia.
The latest in the new wave of acts from the 90s and 2000s returning to the stage is the highly anticipated Millennium Tour. The trek, featuring headlining act B2K, along with Mario, Lloyd, Bobby V., Pretty Ricky, Chingy, and the Ying Yang Twins, have been selling out all across the country. In fact, it is responsible for some career highs for the headliners. Billboard reports:
The tour impacts the Hot Tours tally dated April 27, 2019, at No. 2 with performances at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. (April 13-14), State Farm Arena in Atlanta (April 4-5), and Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. (April 12). According to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore, the tour grossed $2.2 million, $1.7 million and $1.2 million, respectively, combining for $5 million earned and 56,542 tickets sold.
These three engagements are, quite simply, the biggest of B2K’s career. They are the three highest-grossing and most-attended engagements for the reunited foursome and mark B2K’s first appearances in the top 20 of the Boxscore chart.
At the time Billboard posted, the tour (in 8 dates) grossed over $6 million in ticket sales. That already passed the overall haul of their last headlining tour, 2003’s Scream Tour III, which grossed $4.7 million for all 22 shows. Not bad for a group that hasn’t performed together in over 15 years.
I’ve actually witnessed the show myself in Detroit on April 24th, and I will say, they didn’t disappoint at all. Bravo! (You can check out more pics on my Instagram!)
