The first three months of Travis Scott's 'AstroWorld — Wish You Were Here Tour' is turning out to be a major win for the Houston artist.

In a new report, Billboard states that Scott's latest tour has grossed $34.3 million with 485,659 tickets sold since November.

With this new report, Scott claims the No. 2 spot behind Elton John on Billboard's Hot Tours recap list for the week of March 9, making this his third consecutive week in the Top 5.



With 32 dates down and around 20 more to go, Scott beat out J. Cole ($25.2 million), Post Malone ($20.9 million), Future ($19.9 million), Childish Gambino ($19.5 million) and Chance The Rapper's ($17 million) 2017 and 2018 North American tour runs, with Kendrick Lamar's The Damn Tour being the only hip hop act to earn more than Scott with $40.7 million.

When the tour wraps on March 26 in Tulsa, OK, Scott is projected to outdo Kendrick with over $50 million in ticket sales. If Scott reaches $50 million, his tour will join the ranks of JAY-Z's '4:44 Tour' ($48.7 million) and Kanye West's 'The Life of Pablo Tour' ($52.8 million, although several tour dates were canceled).

'AstroWorld — Wish You Were Here Tour' is Scott's first arena-sized tour as the headliner. The "Stargazing" rapper previously opened for The Weeknd in 2015, Rihanna in 2016 and Kendrick Lamar in 2017.



Meanwhile, Scott's single "Sicko Mode" is still holding strong on the Billboard Hot 100 after 30 weeks. For the week of March 9, the Drake-assisted single is sitting at No. 10 behind Blueface's breakout single, "Thotiana." The album AstroWorld currently sits at No. 12 on the Billboard 200.
