REBEL HEART TOUR HAS NOW GROSSED $80 MILLION
Madonna leads Billboard’s latest Hot Tours ranking (see list, below) with the newest reported box office sales data from her global trek.
The new Hot Tours tally includes grosses from 14 shows in eight markets during the European leg of the tour (see No. 1, below).
Box office revenue from all eight markets totals $22.6 million from 194,827 sold tickets at 14 performances. One venue, Turin, Italy’s Pala Alpitour, hosted the pop legend for three shows (Nov. 19, 21-22). Arenas in four cities, Barcelona, London, Amsterdam, and Paris, brought in the tour for two nights.
Overall sales from the Rebel Heart Tour now total $80 million from 45 concerts during the first two legs of the tour, through Dec. 10.
622,048 fans have seen the tour since the opening jaunt through North America that ran from Sept. 9 until Oct. 29. The run through Europe followed, kicking off on Nov. 4 in Germany.
Billboard has received sales data from Europe through the two nights in Paris on Dec. 9 and 10. Revenue from shows in Zurich and three U.K. markets, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow, have yet to be reported from the fall leg.
The Rebel Heart Tour’s European leg wrapped on Dec. 20 in Glasgow. The tour will restart in North America on Jan. 6 in Mexico City for a pair of shows, before swinging back to the U.S. for eight performances. Following that, Madonna will play Puerto Rico, a series of Asian countries, first-ever shows in New Zealand, and her first tour of Australia in over 20 years. The tour is scheduled to close on March 20, 2016 in Sydney.
Madonna’s previous tour, the 88-show MDNA Tour, raked in $305 million in 2012.
