Elton John – Highest Grossing Tour of 2019

10th July 2019 | Category: Concerts

International music superstar, Elton John, has been named as the highest grossing touring artist of 2019 so far, leaving behind other successful artists such as BTS, Ed Sheeran and Drake.

The veteran rocker sold 608,755 tickets for the 42 shows he played between November 2018 and March 2019, all of which are a part of his tour. This period represents only the beginning of his tour, so he will certainly dominate the charts for some time to come.

Earlier this year, he announced his last tour “Farewell Yellow Brick Road”, after which he will retire from touring and focus on his family. The “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour will last three years and see more than 300 shows in North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australasia before it concludes in 2021.

The North American leg and his first three weeks in Europe already marked his climb as the most grossing artist of the year. Following closely behind is Pink with $81.8 million for her “Beautiful Trauma” tour. Even though the artist did not beat John on the global level, Pink stayed the highest earner in the North American chart, a title claimed in 2018.

Another British solo artist with record-breaking tour is Ed Sheeran, whose “Divide Tour” landed him in the top 10. His tour will last until mid-August and depending on the success, the “Divide Tour” might become the all-time highest grossing tour ever.

Other artists with the most lucrative acts are Justin Timberlake, Metallica and Fleetwood Mac.
