Elton John's Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour has been named the No. 1 fall tour for the second year in a row by StubHub.

StubHub announced its list of the top 10 U.S. tours this fall based on the acts that are selling the most tickets and the tour dates that are bringing in the most money.

For the second year in a row, Elton tops the online ticket marketplace's list for fall treks. The music icon drives four times the sales of the No. 2 act, Luke Combs, and seven times the sales of the No. 10 act, Post Malone.

"Farewell tours are always going to draw," said Jeff Poirier, general manager of music for StubHub. "What's unique, in this case, is that Elton John's tour has commanded such demand into its second year now, with such a long-running tour across the country. It's a fitting goodbye for such a legend."

The rest of the list is made up mainly of country and pop stars, including Carrie Underwood at No. 3, Lady Gaga at No. 4, The Jonas Brothers at No. 5, Phil Collins at No. 6, Chris Stapleton at No. 7, Lizzo at No. 8 and Billy Joel at No. 9.
