The highest grossing concert tours in history
Bon Jovi – Because We Can Tour – $ 259,500,000
Bon Jovi, an American rock band from New Jersey, had the highest grossing concert tour in 2013. The group swept with concerts in Australia, North and South America, Europe, Africa. The success is not surprising, because the whole world sings “You Give Love A Bad Name” and “Livin’ On A Prayer “, and many would like to see and listen to John Bon Jovi live.
The Rolling Stones – Bridges to Babylon Tour – $ 274,000,000
This 1997-1998 concert tour raised $ 274 million. The Rolling Stones songs hit the heights of music charts since the 60s of the last century. What wonder there, these guys easily manage to collect arenas.
Celine Dion – Taking Chances World Tour – $ 279,200,000
The tour of this singer in 2008-2009 ranks 13th in the highest grossing concert tours in history. In addition to the wonderful vocal skills and the very good repertoire that Celine has always distinguished, she is very good at arranging powerful music shows. Moreover, Dion releases albums in both English and French.
Madonna – The MDNA Tour – $ 305,158,363
Madonna, whose first hit thundered in 1983, is not going to lose ground. Nowadays, when it is so difficult to be seen among many young beauties, the singer still knows how to play by the rules of show business and remains at the top of the musical Olympus. The MDNA is Madonna’s ninth concert tour in support of her twelfth studio album MDNA. Madonna, like the Rolling Stones, has fans of all ages. Someone likes her early repertoire, someone modern, but because during the concert, the singer performs both old and new songs, tickets for the show are bought up like hot cakes.
The Rolling Stones – Voodoo Lounge Tour – $ 320,000,000
The third time! The 94-95 Voodoo Lounge Tour concert tour proves that the rock group manages to make good money. 320 million dollars in the 90s – just sky-high sum! And the album Voodoo Lounge (the first album recorded without the participation of bass player Bill Wyman) twice became platinum.
The Rolling Stones – A Bigger Bang Tour – $ 558,255,524
The Rolling Stones are just triumphs! Their 2005-2007 concert tour “A Bigger Bang” in support of the self-titled album seems to be wanted by everyone. The album itself did not become platinum and did not receive the praise of critics. But now the songs of The Rolling Stones are heard again from the cars, and tickets for their concerts will never remain unsold.
U2 – U2 360 ° Tour – $ 736,421,584
Who would have thought that the most successful and grossing show would be a U2 concert? Their world tour from 2009 to 2011 in North and South America, Europe, Africa and Oceania was noteworthy for the scenery: light installations illuminating the night sky and many suspended microphones. Many argue that no one will ever be able to overshadow the major league of such rock stars as Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones, but U2, with its songs for all time and a tour that brought 3/4 billion dollars, seems to be able to do it.
