Madonna Has the Year’s Top-Grossing Tour: Nearly $300M

The power of Madonna shows little sign of waning, at least at the cashbox. According to Pollstar, the Material Girl was the runaway leader in concert grosses for calendar year 2012, taking in $296.1 million. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band took the number two spot with $210.2 million. Like Madonna, Springsteen played to more than two million fans this year.

  • anita nygreen

    There are people, who want to destroy Madonna, and her family, and we won´t let them. She done so much and is a lovely person

  • Mario

    who cares any way for those charts?????I think she’s creative artist…I would be major tour if its continue to Asia( Japan,Thailand,Singapore,Manila) and Australia (Sidney and Melbourne)…just make it for only one night show…so she can still have a rest…she’s not a machine!!!!

  • You’ll See

    HONESTLY, I DON’T LIKE THE MDNA TOUR AT ALL. I THINK IT’S HER WORST TOUR EVER (IT’S SO BORING). I LOVE ALL HER PREVIOUS TOURS BUT THERE IS SOMETHING STRANGE WITH THE MDNA TOUR I DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS BUT I FEEL IT LACKS A WOW FACTOR.
    I’VE ALWAYS FELT PROUD OF ALL HER TOURS BUT I CAN’T SAY THE SAME THING ABOUT THE MDNA TOUR. IN FACT, I’M REALLY DISAPPOINTED WITH IT.

    I’M A BIG FAN AND I’M GOING TO BE HER FAN UNTIL THE DAY SHE RETIRES.

    I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO HER NEXT ALBUM AND HER NEXT TOUR!!!!!!!!

      I have also seen all her shows from the 1st world tour Who’sThat Girl to MDNA Tour and they got better and better who’s that girl was amazing (only £15 a ticket worth every penny )MDAN (£110 worth more ) was WOW this women gets better as she get older .So to call it Boring ? Sure you were at the right concert and not at the gaga concert ?This is the best tour she has done was blown away by it and it did not matter the what was going on the stage you could not take your eyes of her she dominated the stage .I so the show 5 time .to call it boring is a bit harsh Maybe different maybe ?But every one thinks differently but also its where you so the show like Hyde park London it was to light when she came on and you never got the full experience of the show . Hope you like the one .

        WELL, TO BE HONEST I LIKE THE FIRST SECTION AND THE LAST SECTION OF THE SHOW.
        I THINK THE REST OF THE SHOW IS BORING.

        First Section:

        INTRODUCTION
        GIRL GONE WILD
        REVOLVER
        GANG BANG
        PAPA DON’T PREACH
        HUNG UP
        I DON’T GIVE A

        Last Section:
        I’M ADDICTED
        I’M A SINNER
        CYBERRAGA
        LIKE A PRAYER
        CELEBRATION

    Congratulations to Madonna… She is such of an amazing performer! I hope that when this concert is released on DVD, it isn’t so “scan and pan” like the Sweet & Sticky tour was. I’d like to experience the whole stage as an audience member. The S&S tour was often dizzying to watch with cameras changing so quickly.

    • Colton

      Fingers crossed! But the people in charge of the MDNA Tour DVD/Blu Ray are the same who did the S&S…

    • dennis

      totally agree..

  • alex

    I hope there is no second leg of the tour because that means no new album and probaby she will just change 3 or 4 songs from the setlist. Checking the list of top grossing tours of all time, I noticed that some are there because they did the same damned show for 2 or 3 years, that’s a lot of work but poor creativity. Better make different tours that last 3 or 4 months, one each year. You don’t appear in that top 10 list but you earn the same amount of money though from several tours instead of just one.

    • I tow the line

      I agree. Madonna doesn’t need more record breaking tours. The MDNA tour was very artistic and innovative, and just awesome, and I feel so privileged to have seen it. She amassed a lot of millions from it. Yes, she could make more money out of it, but I think she will be better served moving on to something else. To rest and move on. She needs a vacation!! She worked too hard!!! That said, I wouldn’t mind a new video and single from MDNA, from Love Spent or Gang Bang, perhaps, or I’m a sinner, I’m addicted or even Some Girls. Or maybe not.This may be selfish of me, because I have already seen the show, so I kinda don’t care if other people don’t see it. At the same time, I am not done with MDNA (and never will be), and would love for another single…

    • CONFESSIONS

      I AGREE. “STICKY & SWEET TOUR” WAS AN AMAZING TOUR (I THINK IT WAS HER BEST TOUR EVER) SO A SECOND LEG WAS A GREAT IDEA BUT “THE MDNA TOUR” IS SO BORING THAT A SECOND LEG WOULD BE A TERRIBLE IDEA.
      SHE SHOULD START WORKING ON A NEW ALBUM AND SHE SHOULD START PLANNING HER NEXT TOUR.

  • ph

    it amazing madonna cant still sell out tours i am hoping hoping you resting on some good chunk of cash not tot mation madonna ablum has push a sells wat a years madonna these arist today cant even come close to you tat when you have loyal fan who stick wit you to the ehd con grast madonna 300 million and counting

  • day4night

    another team mdna number scam..?

    • Guest

      Are you mistaking her for someone else ? *cough*

  • kyoto

    if she wants to beat her last record “Sticky and sweet Tour” she should make a second leg (Asia-Australia) Tour in 2013 ,anyway Congratulation Madonna and i think you should have made a little bit pause in every part of her tour ,take a great rest and then continue Touring ,please you’re not a machine and people need to enjoy the life as always they deserve since they were born., this is really her best year and i knew it . Greetings

    • K

      Dear Madonna fans/ dear Kyoto,

      I don’t see any reason why she should always have to top herself. One tour topping the other or one album topping the
      other. She has done great as it is. She has put out a great album this year, and a great tour. All Madonna projects are different and should be looked at and enjoyed on their own.

      Madonna will always remain creative and a show girl. She will always have a very large audience. So let’s enjoy and
      celebrate her achievements this year(now).

      To the haters:
      The same number rules apply to everybody else on that list. She did another grand show/ tour and she has topped everybody else according to the cash registers. That is what matters. So learn to live with it. Because Madonna Queen of the Universe is going to be around a long time and her legend is going to outlive all you haters and your idol
      wannabees.

    kiss her ass haters!!!
