The Rolling Stones top this year’s annual list of world tour earnings from Pollstar, raising an average of $ 9.6 million per show.
Despite playing only 12 concerts, the British veterans won a total of 115.5 million dollars, selling 516,624 entries at an average price of $ 223.56; solo Bruno Mars (330), Lady Gaga (295) and Eagles (229) charged more for their concert tickets.
Pop star Harry Styles starred in the second highest grossing tour, far behind the Stones with 86.7 million dollars in 39 shows. The Hella Mega Tour from Green Day, Fall Out Boy y Weezer is the following, and Eagles Y Dead & Company they complete the five best-selling tours. Six of the top 10 tours were by rock artists.
“We call it the Great Return, because we did it en masse.”
“Last year was the year that was not, with tours in a global lockdown… and artists and artist development were left to drive-ins, streaming, and social media. The fans largely managed without the live thing, and we didn’t like it. While it was certainly not without its challenges, 2021 was very different and, as the Pollstar data reflects, much better. “
The report added that “Every graph in last year’s year-end edition marked a steep drop in shows, revenue, ticket sales and all other touring metrics. This year, however, is a markedly different story, especially the fourth quarter, which augurs remarkably well for 2022. “
The Stones recently became the first band to raise an average of 10 million dollars per show across their recent concert series, which covered a slightly different accounting period than Pollstar’s annual tour figures.
