Beyonce and Jay-Z dominated the best-selling events list for the whole month of March due to their upcoming On The Run II World Tour, according to sales data from Ticket Club.

The power couple tricked fans before the initial tour announcement, “accidentally” posting and then deleting their tour dates on social media. When tickets eventually went on sale, the “Beyhive” fanclub went crazy, selling out pre-sale tickets within the hour. Due to such a high demand, the second round of On The Run was extended to more cities, with nine additional dates. Catch Mr. and Mrs. Carter kicking off the tour this summer, starting on July 25 in Cleveland, Ohio and wrapping up on October 2 in Vancouver.

Tickets to this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament also sold well as college teams across the nation battled it out all month long. Yesterday, April 2, Villanova defeated Michigan in the Final Four championship game 79-62. During the second half of the game with just 14 minutes left, Villanova pulled an 18-point lead.

International friendly football (or soccer) matches were among the best-selling events in March, including Mexico v. Croatia and Mexico v. Ireland. Wrestling made a few appearances; WWE’s WrestleMania is set to take place this Sunday, April 8. Additionally, the boxing match between Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin II was selling well, despite the fact that Canelo Alvarez had failed drug tests and put the fight in jeopardy. Other top-selling sports events included the ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament Semifinals, the basketball match between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat, as well as the Opening Day baseball game between the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals.

Four-day passes to this year’s Lollapalooza music festival also emerged on the list, featuring headlining acts Bruno Mars, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, and The Weeknd.
