PAUL McCARTNEY: Tops Billboard's Hot Tours List

Chalk up another number-one for Paul McCartney. Billboard reports that he's number-one on its weekly Hot Tours ratings -- helped in large part by his show at Candlestick Park in San Francisco -- the last concert ever at the place that hosted The Beatles' final official concert.

Besides Candlestick, Sir Paul played another venue that once hosted The Beatles: LA's Dodger Stadium. That show drew more than 52,000, while his August 5th date at the University of Montana's Washington-Grizzly Stadium was the biggest in that state's history, drawing 25,192 -- 1,423 more than came out to see The Rolling Stones there in 2006.

McCartney's current Out There shows have played four stadiums and eight arenas this summer -- selling a total of 38.7-million dollars in tickets. Over all, Out There's 40 shows so far have grossed $150-million.

Along with Paul's "gold medal," give a silver one to Motley Crue for coming in second, and bronze for Billy Joel, who takes the third spot in Billboard's rankings.
