Madonna - Madonna's Tour Is 10th Biggest Earner

Madonna's Mdna world tour has been named the 10th highest-grossing concert series of all time.

The Material Girl launched her global trek in Tel Aviv, Israel in May last year (12) and played almost 100 shows to 2.2 million fans in more than 30 countries before wrapping up the gigs in Cordoba, Argentina last month (Dec12).

It has already been named the biggest-earning tour of 2012, and now official figures show the trek grossed more than $305 million (£190 million), putting it at number 10 on Billboard Boxscore's list of the ultimate rock tours.

The news means Madonna has the honour of occupying two spots in the top 10, as her Sticky & Sweet concert series was placed third on the list in 2009, with takings of $408 million (£255 million). She joins the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi and the Grateful Dead as the only acts to land Billboard's highest-grossing tour twice in three years.

Arthur Fogel, head of Mdna promoter Live Nation's Global Touring division, tells Billboard, "The overwhelming global success of the Mdna tour proves yet again that Madonna is the greatest female touring artist. As this tour takes its place as one of the most successful in history, I can't help but enjoy the fact that it is the millions of fans who determine that."
