According to my humble calculations, the top tours of 2012 will be

1) Madonna: $280 million

2) Bruce: $215 million

3) Lady Gaga: $190 million (the 2013 US should bring another $50 million, totalling $240 million for that horrendous tour).

4) The Wall: $186 million (only 2012 dates)

After days without updates they just published one now, sadly no M grosses

I think that we're going to get them on Tue

BTW Elton has grossed $4m for 7 gigs at Caesars Palace, of which only 4 were sold-out :chuckle:

No wonder why he occasionally lets out a screaming mouth fart about Madonna

With 49 shows done she's at 172M. She has another 40 shows to add to that total. I'm guessing she come in between 320M - 350M.

Using the averages of the US dates she did so far, and with a conservative total for Latin America (it will be less than the Sticky Sweet tour), I calculated the total to be $280 million...maybe it'll reach $300 million at most.

Well none of us really know for sure. However they expected this to be one of the top 10 grossing tours of all time and in order for that to happen it would need to bank more than $299M. I still think we're looking at at least $300M.

Top ten grossing tours probably included an estimate for Australia.

I'm sure if U2 went on tour again, there is no way they would rake in the amount that they did last time.

Can't believe MDNAT won't top S&ST.

Since both of them lasted about 6 months, I assume the no. of show is pretty much the same for both. Yet the difference in earning is huge.

Vadge needs to prepare for the 2nd leg asap. *prays*

S&S grossed $282 million from the first leg, and then $126 million for the second leg. it had fewer shows in the first leg than MDNA will have when it finishes, but, as discussed, there was some market saturation in Europe. S&S was more "spread out" in Europe than MDNA, no?

Those were "virgin" countries. And I think they were more profitable, too, no? I mean compared to the usual Paris & London.

For the 2nd leg, those countries, Asia, Australia, Antarctica could do the trick.

Each concert gross is listed on wikipedia. Some of the amounts from the sticky sweet tour were unbelievably high.... $6-10 million grosses in many european cities and even mammoth $10-15 million grosses in places like paris, stockholm and tel aviv. Its hard to match such numbers again.

Her totals in most european cities for mdna were sometimes more than 50% lower

the more i see the data, the more convinced I become that current hits WILL matter next time around, if she intends on doing another mammoth tour.

if she wants to turn it down a notch (which I would love) then she can get away with whatever she wants. it's obviously up to Live Nation as well...

both HC and MDNA aren't huge successes. a few months ago i stumbled upon a very old article from 2004, where she sold two stadium shows in the netherlands in like 20 minutes :o same for confessions..

Found this the other day - think it's puts things in perspective...Madonna sold out at Philly

http://www.phillyburbs.com/entertainment/justin-bieber-can-leave-you-scratching-your-head/article_29ee2815-4c50-5b93-825e-2303b32fe7de.html

Justin Bieber is perhaps the biggest pop singer in the world.

That said, why is it that his show Sunday at the Wells Fargo Center at 3601 S. Broad St. in Philadelphia has not sold out?

Any number of reasons can be attributed to his lack of ticket sales, but a big one is that pre-teens can’t afford $86.50 for a good seat at the cavernous hockey-and-basketball venue. Even the nosebleed/can-barely-see-him seats are $36.50. And then there are the scalpers’ prices.

Another reason for Bieber’s lack of ticket sales could be overexposure. He has been everywhere — the “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Dancing With the Stars,” “The Simpsons,” “Saturday Night Live,” “C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation,” “American Idol” — you name it.

And with only two albums to his credit (plus a holiday release), overexposure can be a problem.

A third reason might be that Bieber’s voice and music style are changing. His voice is decidedly deeper, the result of going through puberty. And he has chosen to use hard-core rappers Ludacris, Big Sean and Nicki Minaj on his new album “Believe” (2012).

Still, a world-class superstar act shouldn’t have trouble filling 20,000 seats. Unless his fans have gotten so used to downloading his music that they are not familiar with actively seeking out live music.

that is true, but in madonna's case she really does need a hit album or at least the right singles and videos and hype.. the MDNA tour is amazing, and it's a shame not as many people are seeing it.
