Kenny's Flip Flop Summer Tour played to more than 1.1 million fans across North America and grossed more than $71 million, according to the magazine. Most impressively, Kenny's tour pulled in those numbers despite his practice of keeping ticket prices relatively low. The tour was fourth on the list overall, behind reunited rock bands The Police and Genesis, as well as pop singer Justin Timberlake. Kenny will return to the road with the 2008 Poets & Pirates Tour, featuring LeAnn Rimes as opening act.
