Justin Timberlake scores the top slot on the weekly ranking of Hot Tours (see list, below) based on ticket sales reported from his 20/20 Experience tour’s final sweep through North America.

The pop star kicked off the tour's last leg on Nov. 20 in Portland, Ore., the first stop on a six-week jaunt that is set to wrap on Jan. 2. This report includes revenue from the first 10 cities on the final trek, beginning with the Portland concert and ending with the Dec. 10 show in Toronto. The 10 sold out performances drew more than 135,000 fans, racking up more than $16 million at the box office.

This final run is Timberlake's third swing through U.S. and Canadian markets since the ongoing tour first began on Nov. 6, 2013. With a steady slate of concerts booked during every month since the tour's launch, overall ticket sales currently total $219.8 million from 1.9 million sold seats at 121 performances.

The 20/20 Experience tour's last 2014 performance will come on Dec. 20 in Atlanta, and the finale will be a two-show engagement at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on the first two nights of 2015.

Classical music artist Andrea Bocelli earns the No. 2 ranking on the weekly tally of top-grossing tours with $10.5 million in sales from concerts at five U.S. arenas during December. The Italian tenor's North American run capped a year of touring that included performances in nine European markets and a six-city trek through Australia and New Zealand.

The first of the American concerts was on Dec. 6 in Las Vegas with a sellout crowd of 12,816 in attendance at the MGM Grand Garden. This week's Hot Tours tally includes four more performances at arenas in Houston, Dallas, Chicago and Detroit. The sold ticket count totals 63,113 from the first five shows of the December jaunt. Bocelli's final concert of the year is on Wednesday, Dec. 17 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

Skrillex Claus is coming to town.

The artist's OWSLA imprint has hit the home stretch of its Nestivus charity drive, launching a series of holiday initiatives with all proceeds going to Bridges for Music.

Last year's edition raised more than $8,000 for the international music nonprofit, which is currently raising funds to build an interdisciplinary music school in the South African township of Langa.

"Anything that sits at the intersection of youth, music, art and charity is pretty much something we want to be involved in," says Blaise DeAngelo, OWSLA general manager. "The whole idea is to reward our most dedicated fans while also raising money for Bridges for Music and their efforts to support young musicians in Cape Town."

To this aim, the label released its first-ever Eggnog holiday compilation on Tuesday, featuring 24 of its most successful tracks from 2014, as well as four new cuts from Ghastly & Mija, Trollphace, Cause & Affect and Riton.

OWSLA has also discounted membership to its Drip.FM subscription service to $9 for a limited time. Subscribers will receive the compilation as well as 24 other giveaways in the lead-up to Christmas. Potential prizes will include signed show-worn Skrillex headphones, Sonos speakers and new original material from OWSLA artists.

Further, the label will be live-streaming its holiday party on Monday to allow fans to watch from home and donate to the cause. A door donation and a percentage of bar sales will also go to support Bridges for Music.

DeAngelo says Bridges for Music was a natural recipient choice, given their partnership history. Last year, Skrillex hosted a free Bridges for Music workshop with 12th Planet in Langa to support empowerment and engagement for disadvantaged youth.

"Since then, Sonny has remained close with Bridges for Music," says DeAngelo. "They've sort of become the official charity partner of OWSLA."

Fans can sign up for OWSLA IV via Drip.FM here, as well as purchase the Eggnog compilation here. All proceeds will support Bridges for Music.
