The Hot Concert Tours of 2008

Madonna

Clearly the economic woes have not been felt by all.

In 2009, Madonna earned over $280 million in ticket sales worldwide. (That’s enough to pay several divorce settlements.) The success of the Sticky & Sweet tour made the singer the best solo draw of all time. (She beat the previous record set by herself in 2006.) The 50-year-old also became the top concert attraction in North America this year.

Here are the Top Ten North American tours of 2008:

  1. Madonna ($105 million)
  2. Celine Dion ($94 million)
  3. The Eagles ($73.4 million)
  4. Kenny Chesney ($72.2 million)
  5. Bon Jovi ($70.4 million)
  6. Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band ($69.3 million)
  7. Neil Diamond ($59.8 million)
  8. Rascal Flatts ($55.8 million)
  9. The Police ($48 million)
  10. Tina Turner ($47.7 million)
