Jay Z and Beyoncé’s upcoming On The Run Tour is on track to become the second highest-grossing trek per show in history, despite reports of poor ticket sales.

The hip-hop supercouple is embarking on a joint trek across North America this summer and recent speculation suggested the dates were failing to sell out.

However, according to an analysis by editors at Forbes magazine, the On The Run Tour is on pace to sell one million tickets, equalling a gross total of around $100 million.

With only 20 shows scheduled for the U.S., this will put Jay Z and Beyoncé second only to U2’s 360 Tour between 2009 and 2011, which grossed $6.7 million per show.

The couple is expected to rake in nearly $5 million with each performance.

The trek kicks off on Wednesday in Miami, Florida. Jay Z and Beyoncé will make more stops in the U.S. before two dates at the Stade de France in Paris, France in September.
