Who says rock is dead? Iron Maiden and Aerosmith have some of the top grossing tours for this fall, and rockers such as Muse and Def Leppard even rank among the top 10 hottest tours tallied this week.

That's the latest as compiled by Billboard in the Hot Tours chart for the week ending Oct. 19. Taking the No. 1. position is Iron Maiden with a total gross of $13,008,243. Aerosmith nabs runner up with $6,489,923 in total grosses for the week. See the complete stats toward the bottom of this page.

But that's not all. Looking at Aerosmith's ongoing "Deuces Are Wild" Las Vegas residency that's now tearing up Billboard's Current Boxscore ranking, the "Dream On" and "Sweet Emotion" songsters have surpassed $35.6 million earned and 163,820 tickets sold, all told since opening on April 6. Aerosmith's take just from Sept. 21 to Oct. 6 grossed $6.5 million and sold 29,805 tickets, which landed them the No. 2 position on the Hot Tours chart for the current week.

Those are some exciting numbers. Perhaps that's why Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler decided to suggestively hump a fan onstage during one recent performance, which sent his daughters recoiling online.

Similarly, Iron Maiden's chart-topping feat is no small potatoes. It also something the English heavy metal band pull off consistently. After all, Maiden ended last year with similar million-selling stats.
