(ANI): Canadian pop diva Celine Dion has emerged as America's top
performer after beating the Dave Matthews Band and country singer
Kenny Chesney. Compilers Pollstar said that Dion's climb to the top
of America's Ultimate Top 10 list was due to the combined sales of
her album as well as her concert ticket sales which includes her
five-year, sold-out Caesars Palace stint, A New Day.
Dion's consistent success from 2000 to the end of 2009 have put
her at the top of the new decade countdown, reports the Daily
Express. According to Pollstar, Dion earned 326.4 million pounds in
concert ticket sales during the decade and added 141 million pounds
in album sales, taking her 10-year tally to 467.4 million pounds -
3.1 million pounds more than second-placed Chesney.
Dave Matthews Band finished third on the list, while The Beatles
came in fourth and U2 rounded out the top five. Also making the top
10 were Toby Keith, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Tim
McGraw and Britney Spears.
