Madonna Enjoys Fifth No. 1 Since Launch Of MDNA Tour

Madonna claims the No. 1 ranking on the weekly tally of Hot Tours for the fifth time since the launch of her blockbuster MDNA Tour that has been playing concert venues in Europe and North America since the end of May. Ticket revenue reported during the past week surpasses the $60 million mark from performances that occurred during October and November in 18 U.S. cities. With two-show runs at venues in Seattle, San Jose, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, St. Paul and New York City, the overall attendance count from six weeks of concerts totals 336,386.
With $233 million already logged from 74 shows and a string of stadium performances scheduled in South American cities through December 22, the MDNA Tour is on track to potentially rank among the 10 top-grossing tours of all time. Madonna¹s top-grossing tour so far is Sticky & Sweet Tour (2008-2009) that generated more than $407 million in ticket sales and ranks fourth all-time on the Boxscore tally.
Barclays Center, the new 19,000-seat arena in Brooklyn, New York has reported concert gross and attendance counts from its first two months of operation including a mammoth $9.3 million gross from Barbra Streisand¹s Back to Brooklyn Tour that played to sellout crowds on October 11 and 13. The legendary entertainer and Brooklyn-native earns this week¹s No. 2 Hot Tours ranking with revenue totals reported from the two-show stint in her hometown.
Also ranking among this week¹s top 10 tours at No. 3 is Jay-Z, another Brooklyn-born superstar, who played the inaugural concert in the new facility on September 28. He performed a total of eight sold out shows in Barclays Center through October 6, grossing $7.3 million from 121,058 sold tickets. Additional artists to play the new venue include gospel music¹s Kirk Franklin, Marvin Sapp, Donnie McClurkin and Israel Houghton with the King¹s Men Tour on October 14, veteran rock band Rush with a concert on October 22, a two-night dance music event dubbed Sensation on October 26-27 and a sold out show on November 12 with teen superstar Justin Bieber.

  • day4night

    ever since Team MDNA lied and manipulated album sales, i don’t believe any number they come up with. Bullboard is one of Madonna’s Triangle Bitches, apparently.

    • K

      You go and believe copycat gaga if you want, but I know you will still listen to and watch Madonna and you will keep referring to Billboard when it suits your opinion.

      Billboard is the music bible. Its numbers don’t lie. Airplay may have fallen short but Madonna’s old and new records are still selling and will continue to sell everywhere.

  • I tow the line

    wow! she is so far ahead anyone else! in the US, besides being a boxoffice hit, it has also been a critical success. whoever wants to talk sh*t about my maddy needs only see these numbers and read the reviews. wow!
