Correct. 

However, the four California gigs (Sacramento, Oakland, LA, and San Diego) and the one show in Las Vegas drew an estimated 50k concert-goers and generated over $4 million in ticket sales revenue and the first four arena gigs in TX, AZ and UT attracted around 30k fans and grossed another $2 million-plus.

The 22 gigs in North America including 2 stadium shows in Mexico City should gross around $20 million in total from approx 275,000 concert tickets sold and the 29 arena/stadium/outdoor gigs in Europe should gross around $70 million from over 800,000 concert tickets sold.

'Supermassive' scored a 33% increase in on-demand streams (audio and video combined) in the U.S. on April 10-13, as compared to its streams earned on April 7-9. Its sum of streams rose from 149,000 to 199,000. Breaking that down further, the song’s on-demand video streams bolted from 13,000 to 33,000 (a gain of 153%); while on-demand audio streams jumped from 136,000 to 165,000 (up 22%)."
