October in the ticketing world was headlined by Pink’s Beautiful Trauma tour, taking place in early 2018, which went on sale this month. Beyond that, Major League Baseball’s playoffs predictably dominated, as Fall Classic contests between the LA Dodgers and Houston Astros came in second overall and first in the sports category. Hamilton, though challenged for its top spot by Hello Dolly and Dear Evan Hanson, came in third overall and once again topped the Theater listings.
