Controversial pop icon Madonna has added another feather on her cap by topping this year’s list of highest-grossing concert tours. According to Billboard, her world tour brought in the most money this year, reaching an incredible $242 million in revenues, besting rock and roll legend Bruce Springsteen’s total of $198 million from his “The Wrecking Ball” tour with The E Street Band.
Madonna handily beat her younger contemporary, the equally-controversial Lady GaGa, who only managed to secure the no. 6 spot with $124 million from her “Born This Way Ball” tour. The notorious Material Girl is consistently in the headlines by making controversial stunts in her shows, like brandishing a gun onstage in Denver only shortly after the Colorado shooting during “The Dark Knight Rises” movie premiere, and handing out pink anti-homophobia wristbands to Russian fans.
With seventy more shows still lined up and potentially $450 million in total earnings, the “MDNA” tour may end-up as the all-time highest-grossing live act. The record is currently held by Irish rock band U2 for their “360 Degrees” tour which grossed a whopping $736 million from a total of 110 shows.
Instagram is my new hobby now. I nearly upload daily up to 10 different pics. This program has huge subscribers and is being used as an efficient tool for marketing products and services other than people feedback about places they went to. I just love it!
