By the Numbers - Tonight's Top Concerts!

Oo-wee, it's Friday! Congratulations, America, you just made it to a three-day weekend! 
 
Odds are, you'll want to celebrate. Sure, there'll be barbecues and picnics on Sunday and Monday--after all, what's Labor Day without a grill?--but let's face it. Some of you aren't going to be able to wait that long to hoot, holler, and enjoy your three days of freedom. Some of you are going to dive right in and celebrate tonight by heading out to a weekend kick-off concert.
 
How do we know that? Because the data tells us so! You guys have snapped up TicketsNow tickets to tonight's concerts like they're going out of style. Here's a look at the top three shows for tonight:
 
American Airlines Arena, Miami, FL
 
What a show this'll be! Between the enormously talented Bruno Mars and the hot, hot Fitz and the Tantrums, it's no surprise that this paring accounts for 32.1% of all concert tickets sold for tonight on TicketsNow. That means almost 1/3 of tonight's concert goers who bought tickets on TicketsNow bought 'em for this show. That, my friends, is huge.
 
Allentown Fairgrounds, Allentown, PA
 
The summer fair season is drawing to a close, but it's not quite done yet! Country superstar Luke Bryan and his friends from Thompson Square and Florida Georgia Line are rocking the Great Allentown Fair in Pennsylvania tonight. Not a bad way to say hello to the weekend! Luke snagged 11.2% of overall concert sales for tonight. Not too shabby.
 
Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, CO 

Don't be fooled by the fact that ticket sales account for 7.5% of tonight's overall concert sales. That may be a far cry from Bruno Mars' 32.1%, but keep in mind, Red Rocks is just a bit smaller than the American Airlines Arena, and this country mega-show has been sold out for a loooooong time!  
 
Honorable Mentions
Other artists in tonight's Top 10 include Depeche Mode in Atlantic City, Aerosmith in Milwaukee, and Blake Shelton in Tampa!
