MADONNA’S REBEL HEART TOUR LEADS NEW HOT TOUR ROUNDUP
Madonna heads up the weekly tally of Hot Tours, ranking No. 1 based on grosses from the final four venues of her Rebel Heart tour’s European trek during November and December.
She wrapped the 16-city fall run in Scotland on Dec. 20 at Glasgow’s 13,000-seat arena, SSE Hydro. Concerts at two more U.K. venues, Manchester Arena and Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena as well as the Swiss arena Hallenstadion in Zürich led up to the fall finale. Revenue from all four sold out performances totaled $7.5 million from 47,267 sold tickets.
The Rebel Heart tour’s opening jaunts through North America and Europe amassed sold ticket revenue totaling $88 million during its 15-week span.
From 49 sold out concerts at 36 venues on both continents, overall 2015 attendance reached 669,315.
The pop star kicked off her 2016 schedule early in the year, beginning with a two-night stand in Mexico City on Jan. 6 and 7. A string of U.S. dates began on Jan. 10 in San Antonio, Texas, and continues through the end of the month. Shows in Asian markets are booked in February, and the Rebel Heart tour will wrap in March with a final swing through Australia and New Zealand.
