STYX, QUEEN AND TOM PETTY WIN 2017 UCR FAN CHOICE AWARDS
The polls are closed and the people have spoken. We’ve tallied up your ballots to determine the winners of the 2017 Ultimate Classic Rock Fan Choice Awards, and they’re all lined up right here.
We already knew plenty of classic rock artists made good money on the road in 2017, thanks to top-grossing tours from Metallica, Guns N’ Roses and U2. But none of those acts topped the UCR Fan Choice Awards; instead, Queen enjoyed a landslide victory for top Tour of the Year, drawing a whopping 69 percent of the vote. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 40th anniversary tour, sadly punctuated by Petty’s unexpected death, took a distant second.
