Shania Twain scores a Hot Tours ranking this week, landing at No. 2 with $13.6 million in revenue from her farewell tour titled Rock This Country. From 16 concerts recently reported by tour promoter AEG Live, the country femme's sold ticket count jumps by more than 155,000, bringing the overall tour attendance to 648,071. Grosses add up to $61 million from 60 performances reported since the June opener.

The Rock This Country tour is set to wrap at the end of this month after a 20-week run through the U.S. and Canada. Separated into two legs, tickets went on sale in March for the opening run that played 40 cities during the summer months. In May a second leg was announced with 24 additional shows beginning in mid-September. Only five venues remain on the schedule that ends on Oct. 27 in Kelowna, British Columbia.

Following in the third slot on the tally is Mexican singer Juan Gabriel with $5.6 million in sales from a string of six shows at Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City during September. The veteran entertainer sold out each performance at the venue, logging an overall attendance count of 57,120 for the run. He also appeared at the same theater earlier this year, racking up $9.5 million in sales from 12 performances during a five-week span in April and May.
