Madonna’s Tour Is The Top-Grossing Of 2012?
With the news that Madonna has gone crude with her concerts and how everyone was appalled by it, it seemed to not have an affect on ticket sales. As it turns out, Madonna’s tour is the top grossing of 2012! Personally, there has never been a time where I have been to a Madonna concert and really, I don’t think that I would want to go. The fame and success for Madonna came quickly ever since she was on the Super Bowl Halftime Show last year. Out of the 72 shows that Madonna put on, all were sold out.
The new album she was touring was MDNA and grossed a total of $228,406, 085! The album itself landed on #44 on Billboard’s Top 200. It is shocking because there was nothing but bad press for the “Like A Virgin” singer and it would seem that would have had an affect on the amount of people going to her concert. Than again, there is Marilyn Manson concerts that everyone remembers and yet, people go to those. Therefore it would seem that Madonna is among the top ranked singers of 2012.
Other singers got close to being in 1st place. EW reported that, “Bruce Springsteen, whose raked in just shy $200 million this year with his Wrecking Ball tour. (He did, however, beat Madonna in overall attendance by about 500,000 people. Like Madonna, he also played 72 shows.) Roger Waters came in third with roughly $186 million (and nearly 50,000 more in attendance than Madge). Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour by Cirque Du Soleil came in fourth place with about $147 million for the year, which just edged No. 5 Coldplay by roughly $100,000.”

Many are shocked that Lady Gaga came in 6th place, but the death threats that she received hurt her a lot and plus being sick a lot has a lot to do with it. Justin Bieber was disappointing to a lot of fans as he came in 20th on the list. The entire year must have not been good for him. But honestly, I am shocked with Madonna being on top. I think that I must go and get a ticket to Madonna’s next concert. Hopefully I will be able to get through it. What do you think? Do you agree with the calculation?
For all the Madonna Fans, Here is a Full Concert.
