ArtTracker| Madonna’s 85-shows Sticky and Sweet world tour made $408 million, making it the highest grossing tour ever for a solo artist, according to promoters Live Nation. Sticky and Sweet is the second biggest tour of all time, standing behind the Rolling Stones’ Bigger Bang tour, which made $558m.
It’s worth nothing that Madonna’s success comes in the midst of a global economic crisis. Without a doubt, she rallied her fans.
The tour ended this week in Israel, where Madonna combined business with spirituality and politics. The icon set an attendance record for the biggest crowds in history in Zurich, where she drew 72,000 fans. Madonna also set a record in Finland, selling 85,000 tickets. Anne
