  1. Madonna Amsterdam Arena Amsterdam, The Netherlands Sept. 3-4, 2006 $11,783,254 102,330 / 102,330 2 / 2 $125.43, $84.47 All I can say is Wow! More than 50,000 people per night. I didn't know the Amsterdam Arena could hold so many people. Madonna Horsens Forum Outdoor Horsens, Denmark Aug. 24, 2006 $11,435,199 85,232 / 85,232 1 / 1 $514.26, $119.14 What can we say? That's the equivalent of four nights at Wembley. She worked her ass off on stage for only two hours but earned as much as if she had worked her ass off for eight hours. Ain't that genius? I bet this is the highest gross ever for a single date, ain't it? Madonna Palais Omnisports Bercy Paris, France Aug. 27-28, 30-31, 2006 $9,145,832 67,758 / 67,758 4 / 4 $206.06, $78.07 Paris is just cheap! She should have charged those crazy queens a lot more! ;-) Madonna Sazka Arena Prague, Czech Republic Sept. 6-7, 2006 $5,861,668 37,666 / 38,342 0 / 2 $227.11, $55.53 What can we say here? First of all I wan't expecting her to play in front of almost 19,000 people per night. Second of all the average ticket price for these gigs was 155 USD. If she keeps at least the same level for the Japan gigs and if she sells out all four of them, she will earn more than 34,000,000 USD from Japan alone. Something tells me that she will end up making more money than that in Japan after all is said and done. Madonna Niedersachsenstadion Hannover, Germany Aug. 22, 2006 $5,218,985 39,871 / 39,871 1 / 1 $211.18, $83.19 This is another nice surprise. This tour is gonna end up with more than $ 213,000,000 and that's just AMAZING! That translates into an average of over $ 3,500,000 per date. Has anyone ever done that before? I don't think so. Hopefully Guy and Angela will come out with a very nice press release conciding with the NBC broadcast. Everybody has got to know. The funny thing is that she could have earned even more had the tour schedule been done better. Like someone has stated, had the tour been organized differently, she could have included Australia as well - which would have translated into at least another $ 30,000,000 - and she could have done her London Wembley gigs in late September or early October thus ending the tour in England. It should have gone like this: Rome-Dusseldorf-Hannover-Horsen-Amsterdam-Paris-Prague-Moscow-Osaka-Tokyo-Brisbane-Melbourne-Sidney-Cardiff-London. Instead of ending the tour on September 21, she could have ended it in early October in London, thus not affecting her children's work school schedule. This way the tour could have easily grossed a lot more than 250,000,000! This lady's definitely got even higher potential. If only she was managed by the right people! Finally the thing about the US is that, had she played Atlanta and Washington instead of Hartford and Fresno, she would have grossed more than 89,000,000. That of course dosn't take anything away from the amazing achievements of this tour. Congratulations to the biggest star on the planet!
  2. By the way, going back to recent Billboard reports for the European shows, I would just like to point out that, as far as the Rome gig is concerned, even though Billboard reported this show as being sold-out with more than 63,000 tickets sold, I can tell you that more than 70,000 tickets were actually sold by the promoter. I know this for a fact. This is further demonostration of the fact that the numbers reported by Billboard for sold out shows are just the numbers that Madonna's management and the promoters agreed upon before the tickets went on sale. I guess that in that way even if the promoter ends up selling more tickets, these extra tickets sold will most likely not be reported to Billboard by the promoter/venue. The Rome gig is a demonstration of the fact that, even though the number that they had agreed upon was the number reported by Billboard, the promoter ended up putting on sale a higher number of tickets and these extra tickets were all sold. In the end Madonna performed in front of more than 70,000 people instead of the 63,000 reported. The [real] total gross for the Rome gig must have surely exceeded 6,000,000 USD after all was said and done. I wonder if any of the extra money made with these additional 7,000 tickets ended in Madonna's pockets. Has this phenomenon been experienced at other gigs or venues?
  3. Here are the final totals for the North American leg of Madonna's Confessions Tour. Keep in mind that this is the gross total, not what Madonna herself gets paid. $ 7,686,380 LA (Forum) $ 7,257,750 Las Vegas $ 4,761,555 San Jose $ 2,804,583 LA (Staples) $ 3,749,800 Fresno $ 4,890,090 Phoenix $ 9,271,790 Chicago $ 5,670,150 Montréal $ 3,451,235 Hartford $16,507,855 New York OMG! $ 6,337,115 Boston $ 4,639,775 Philidelphia $ 3,246,100 Atlantic City $ 5,568,485 Miami $85,842,663 North American Total posted by torontophoenix So much for a no longer relevant artist! However, it has to be said that had her management chosen Washington and Atlanta instead of FresNO and Hartford, the North American tour gross would have been even higher and it would have surely gotten VERY close to 90,000,000 dollars. In fact both FresNO and Hartford had VERY disappointing and under-par revenues. In any case I believe that the final figure still is a record, isn't it?
  4. She put a bad taste in everyone’s mouths when she insulted George Bush. I want her to realize that people are out there fighting for democracy! Josh Burmei, 33, real estate Fighting for democracy? I think I am going to throw up........ right here right now. Madonna’s body is ridiculous. But she should have more break dancing on her next album. Ricardo otero, 20, break-dancer Ridiculous? Hopefully he meant that as a compliment. Weird nonetheless!
  5. That's absolutely true. She is indeed doing wonderfully. Here's a rundown of approximative figures for upcoming shows: July 06 Boston TD Bank Garden - 12,247 (based on Billboard Boxscore 2006) July 09 Boston TD Bank Garden - 12,247 (based on Billboard Boxscore 2006) July 10 Boston TD Bank Garden - 12,247 (based on Billboard Boxscore 2006) July 12 Philadelphia Wachovia Center - 14,874 (based on Billboard Boxscore 2006) July 13 Philadelphia Wachovia Center - 14,874 (based on Billboard Boxscore 2006) July 16 Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall - 12,322 (based on Billboard Boxscore 2006) July 18 New York Madison Square Garden - 14,770 (based on RIT figure 2004) July 19 New York Madison Square Garden - 14,770 (based on RIT figure 2004) July 22 Miami AmericanAirlines Arena - 15,290 (based on RIT figure 2004) July 23 Miami AmericanAirlines Arena - 15,290 (based on RIT figure 2004) July 30 Cardiff Millennium Stadium - 60,000 (based on press reports - 57,000 appear to have been sold already) Aug. 01 London Wembley Arena - 11,046 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 03 London Wembley Arena - 11,046 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 06 Rome Olympic Stadium - 62,000 (based on press reports) Aug. 09 London Wembley Arena - 11,046 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 10 London Wembley Arena - 11,046 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 12 London Wembley Arena - 11,046 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 13 London Wembley Arena - 11,046 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 15 London Wembley Arena - 11,046 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 16 London Wembley Arena - 11,046 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 20 Dusseldorf LTU Arena - 65,000 (based on press reports) Aug. 22 Hannover Niedersachsen - 65,000 (based on press reports) Aug. 24 Horsens (Denmark) Forum Horsens Outdoor - 85,000 (based on press reports) Aug. 27 Paris Bercy Stadium - 17,000 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 28 Paris Bercy Stadium - 17,000 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 30 Paris Bercy Stadium - 17,000 (based on RIT figure 2004) Aug. 31 Paris Bercy Stadium - 17,000 (based on RIT figure 2004) Sept. 03 Amsterdam Arena - 45,000 (based on capacity for similar concerts) Sept. 04 Amsterdam Arena - 45,000 (based on capacity for similar concerts) Sept. 06 Prague Sazka Arena - 18,000 (based on capacity for similar concerts) Sept. 07 Prague Sazka Arena - 18,000 (based on capacity for similar concerts) Sept. 16 Osaka Dome - 45,000 (based on capacity for similar concerts) Sept. 17 Osaka Dome - 45,000 (based on capacity for similar concerts) to be added Sept. 20 Tokyo Dome - 43,449 (based on capacity for Rolling Stones as of Billboard Boxscore) Sept. 21 Tokyo Dome - 43,449 (based on capacity for Rolling Stones as of Billboard Boxscore) to be added This means that she will have played to at least 1,262,010 people (she has already played to around 295,000 people in the US so far) worldwide after all is said and done and the tour will have grossed in excess of 210,000,000 dollars in just over 60 dates. Plus, we all know that Moscow appears to be happening (if everything works out) and she may end up doing 5 or 6 gigs in Japan, especially if you consider her Japan tour history and the fact that she has not played Japan since 1993. So, she really is doing wonderfully. I bet every other artist would kill for these numbers.
  6. Thank you, Sly! This video of yours is just unbelievable! Wow...what an amazing quality! Is there any prossibility that you may upload other snippets? Her body is just AMAZING! I mean....it truly is out of this world! All I can say is....WOW! To me this is the best that she's ever looked! EVER! Those sky-high heels and the way that they enhance her perfect body shape and also those boobs....I mean...just the whole package is again WOW! Now I can see why people always try to bring her down because of her age. They are just fucking jealous! How dare she look like that at 48? This woman is just her own work of art!
  7. Thank you, Sly! How many more shows do you have left? Keep the reports coming! ;-)
  8. You are forgetting the big stadium shows like Cardiff (60,000 tickets....very high-priced for a stadium), Rome (62,000), Horsens (80,000), the German shows (more than 120,000 total....again very high-prices for stadium), Amsterdam (80,000 total) and Prague (more than 30,000). With an average 130,00 Euro per ticket she will rank in more than 55,000,000 Euro's from just the above-mentioned shows. Then you have the London shows (very expensive!), Paris, Japan and the big Moscow concert. She should end up with close to 100,000,000 Euro's (more than 125,000,000 USD) after all is said and done in Europe and Japan. By the time she's done in the US she will have made more than 75,000,000 USD. So there you have it! 200,000,000 USD! Highest grossing tour by a female artist!
