Just after wrapping her Rebel Heart world tour in Australia and New Zealand this week Queen of Pop Madonna has been crowned the top grossing touring solo artist in Billboard Boxscore history. She’s grossed more than $1.31 billion in ticket sales over the course of her career.
Madonna is also the third top grossing touring act, following The Rolling Stones and U2, since Billboard began tracking sales in 1990.
The Rebel Heart tour raked in $169.8 million in ticket sales with more than one million fans in attendance. The trek kicked off September 9 in Montreal and hit arenas in 55 different cities before wrapping in Sydney, Australia last weekend. The final two shows were filmed for an upcoming release.
During this tour, Madonna got to visit certain cities for the first time ever, including Bangkok, Hong Kong, Auckland, Nashville, Omaha and Louisville.
