Madonna - Madonna's Mdna Tour Is Highest-grossing Of 2012

Madonna has proved she's still at the top of her game after her Mdna trek was named the highest-grossing tour of 2012.

The Material Girl has been on the road since May (12), and the jaunt, her ninth world tour, has taken her around the globe.

And the hard work has paid off - the concerts have pulled in a staggering $228 million (£141 million), making it the most lucrative tour this year (12), according to Billboard magazine.

The huge figure leaves the singer way ahead of The Boss - Bruce Springsteen's ongoing Wrecking Ball Tour has made $198 million (£123 million).

Former Pink Floyd rocker Roger Waters' The Wall Live show, which has been on the road since 2010, is in third place on the countdown with $186 million (£115 million), while the Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour by Cirque Du Soleil has pulled in $147 million (£90.9 million).

British rockers Coldplay ($147 million/£90.9 million), Lady Gaga ($124 million/£76 million), Barbra Streisand ($40 million/£24.7 million), Sir Elton John ($32 million/£19 million) and Justin Bieber ($30 million/£18.5 million) also make the list.
