Madonna topped 2024’s mid-year worldwide tally with a $179 million gross. She is followed closely by Bad Bunny, 2022’s chart topper, whose Most Wanted Tour grossed $174.6 million during the mid-year timeframe (16 Nov 2023 to 15 May 2024). He’s followed by another Latin artist in Luis Miguel, a 56-year-old Mexican crooner whose tour grossed $169.4 million.

U2’s literal and metaphorical groundbreaking residency at Sphere, U2:UV Achtung Baby Live at Sphere closed out the mid-year with $134.7 million. The rest of the diverse Top 10 includes Karol G ($111.2 million), Bruno Mars ($102.1 million), Coldplay ($100.4 million), SEVENTEEN ($74.5 million), Eagles ($69.4 million) and Nicki Minaj ($66.2 million).

The absence of Taylor Swift can be explained by the fact that her blockbuster Eras tour does not report its tour figures. Despite that, in December, Pollstar reported that her Eras Tour was the highest-grossing trek of all time and the first tour ever to cross the $1 billion threshold.

The Celebration Tour took Madonna’s audiences on an emotional journey through some of her biggest hits, including songs she has not performed on stage in decades. With nods to her beginnings as a struggling artist living in New York City, to her meteoric success, through personal and professional lows to spiritual awakening; the show captured Madonna’s past while looking to the future.

The tour tour was rescheduled after initial dates were cancelled when the singer received treatment for a serious bacterial infection in hospital in early 2023. It ended in triumph with a huge show on Cocacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to a reported 1.6 million-strong audience, making it the largest audience ever for a stand-alone concert by any artist in history.
