Madonna’s ‘MDNA World Tour’ Set To Break Box Office Records

She just may have the whole world in her hands.  For, despite the recent arrival of multiple lawsuits against her, ‘Celebration’ singer Madonna may have cause to do just that as reports indicate the Pop queen is ruling tour charts across the globe.

Leaving her nearest competitors, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, in her rearview…

Her latest stint at #1 on Billboard’s tour chart is just a glimpse at the singer’s overall summer tour domination, beating out fellow divas Gaga and Lopez to amass $450 million on the ‘MDNA World Tour’ to date from just 70 shows (from ticket sales alone, excluding merchandise sales).

And, already holding the title for the highest grossing tour of any solo act of all time, Madge is on pace to outdo herself for the 3rd time.  Possibly landing in the #3 spot for highest grossing tours of all time for any act, it should be noted that the Material Girl has consistently played less shows than the two acts ranking above her while pulling in similar figures.

      Since when is Jennifer Lopez a large touring act. I think this is her first time doing a big tour in her career and even present day she is not headlining her own tour just co-headlining. Madonna has always been a huge touring act and her shows are very impressive (just look at some of her old concert DVDs…except for the Drowned World Tour).

        Did ya hear that from Madge’s Camp there Facekick?? Cause she’s notorious for lying about her numbers and sales figures … like how she claims to have sold 350 thousand records, yet industry even says there is no proof of this, billboard, grammy’s, American Music, Global music fed. all don’t support this claim, but who cares to fight her, cause industry ppl dislike her (like if your co-workers don’t like you, there’s a reason and it ain’t jealous if ur gonna throw that). if you actually look her up on billboard it’s all very unimpressive compared to her reputation in the public eye. Part of what’s so sad about this women is that you can’t believe what her camp says because they blatantly lie. Kinda the same why she uses all these gay’s she’s got by the c*ck. It’s all money and myths friend.
        No denying she’s hard to beat in the tour arena, but no. she’s not that good.

        LOL are you NUTS? Madonna doesn’t lie about any of her numbers- she is frequently listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for all her achievements. She is called the Queen of Pop for a reason, dumbass. My God what a bitter soul you must be. If you don’t like Madonna, FINE AND DANDY. You don’t have to. But obviously millions still do, and why is that any of your concern- and furthermore, why are you reading articles about her? Get a f****** life.

      Considering she steals about $350 from each fan, no kidding she’s making that kinda cash. Never understood how her fan’s let her use them like this. She just talk and talk their money. Any vids of this tour have been Horrible and lazy. But her fans pay out the ass to see her again and again. She’s def. got a loyal fan base, but does he “have the world” hellssss NO. She’s just got certain ppl by the balls.

      I still can’t understand why ppl think this is important? Had he not staged his “COMING OUT PARTY” then dropped his CD online to a flood of fake celebrity support then he wouldn’t have moved that much. It’s nice to have the media on your side. They say great things about you and your music sells. They actively and constantly tear you down and its doesn’t. It’s not rocket science! had the media dogged him he wouldn’t have seen those numbers!

    What did you think of it?
    My mom: That woman knows how to put on a show, the stage and screens are unbelievable. And the choreography, just spectacular.
    Me: *tries not to scream: “I f****** KNOW! BOW DOWN TO THE QUEEN. HAIL MADONNA MOTHER OF POP”*
    I Know…
    My mom: Is that the same show you’ll be attending?

    You have a great site. I mean, you push that gay agenda, like to the point of it being so obvious and eventually laborious. But it’s your site. Yours is one of the few sites that are run by a black man. That impressed me. Not that you’re a gay black man – but a black man and I think you put being a black man BEFORE your sexuality.

    Time for me to pull-up stakes; just you watch, all that i’ve said WILL come to fruition – trust me on this. We’ve all seen this movie before. Matter of a fact, it’s BEEN on rerun for like forever – if anyone cared to pay attention.

    Sam, good luck and all the best. Any X,Y,”and Z” that comes after are impostors.

      Jerry says:

      Actually, on a world-wide sales basis, Madonna’s latest CD is ranked fifth for 2012. That’s actually very good considering she has been in the business for 30 years. The only artist that currently has really large sales is Adele. Madonna is still a force to be reckoned with.

    no need for hate here
    but the fact that gaga has only been out for 4 years and can compete on the touring front with madonna is incredible in its own right – katy, rihanna, and nicki could never

    Well goodbye X,Y and Z , go find other ways to ride Chris’ d***

    I went last night and the reason she is MADONNA is she is talented a good businesswoman who takes risks, MDNA hasn’t rocked the charts and I don’t give a s*** about Janet Marian cos they AIN’T nailing madonna EVER period.

    Last night madonna SERVED up to hyde park….. BA BYE haters

    What the hell was that try of putting J.Lo. on the smae level of the Madonna´s and Lady Gaga´s of the world??? Fail
    Madonna is a big touring force and the queen of pop so even if she can´t walk anymore she will continue to make these numbers (unless her arms get too repulsive for people to handle it). She exploits her fans money way too much though. It seems like she only cares about the money
    Gaga is also doing awesome, her two world tours have been huge and she just arrived compared to the people who make these huge worldwide numbers so kudos to her too

      That was unnecessary John, her tickets——-Her shows worth every penny because are the best, let’s be honest no one has the same shows, her arms, i love those veins arms, i can say Mariah is fat, you see, it’s unnecessary.

      • July 18, 2012 at 4:13 pm
        JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) says:

        I know, but you know dam well Madonna could offer her tickets a little bit less expensive and you also know Mariah´s weight is less repulsive than Madonna´s arms, I mean… yeah you know it :)
        You know I still praised her though

      • July 18, 2012 at 4:37 pm
        Suicide Blonde says:

        I don’t see anything repulsive about her arms, honestly, i go to alots of concert by other musician and trust me no one put a show like she does, that’s why her tickest must be the most expensive, let’s see if other Musicians can sell their tickes as expensive as those of Madonna, i’m not sure they would pay for them.

      JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) says:

      For people like Bruce they would (and his concerts are 4 hours long sometimes). But Madonna likes the money more

        Suicide Blonde says:

        Don’t you think, all of them like the money, you guys always act like Madonna is the worst thing on earth, i bet if they can sell tickets at this price they would put the same price but trust me nobody would pay for that.

    • July 18, 2012 at 5:10 pm
      JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) says:

      I tell you for Bruce they would. His fan base is crazy about him, they would do anything to see him, he sells stadiums like crazy here in Spain and has been doing it for decades. There´s something very deep between Bruce and his fan base, way more than between Madonna and hers
      I don´t act like Madonna is the worst thing on Earth. She is the Queen of Pop (not the best). That´s enough for me. I don´t base my musical taste on how an artist is. I just talked about money cos people were commenting about it on here and it is true. It´s been a common comment for years and years when it comes to Madonna and her tours
      Also, she is cold b****. You can´t deny that. But i don´t care and it is usually funny to me
      So it´s all good @suicide :)

        Suicide Blonde says:

        I’m a huge Bruce fan but most of his fans are not my age, that’s why…..blah blah…..Madonna is a b****, she’s cold, i through you know a little bit more about her, she’s a b**** only with her detractors, she’s not cold with her fans, i know what i’m talking about, what i like more of her is that she is herself, she doesn’t try to look goof in front of a camera, she show the world, who she is and i admire that, i love her because she’s a b**** and proud of it.

      The kicker here is that ONLY Madonna can charge sky high prices and still sell out in moments. Let another pop star charge half of what she does and they’d be playing empty houses.

      Madonna is the one and only Queen of Pop.

    Good for her….I like to see her on top, even tho I like Gaga. I think Britney still makes major cash, and on tour now she LITERALLy sits on a chair and lip syncs while sometimes moving her arms around. That Britney is from Louisiana so I’m sure she’s practicing some type of voodoo black magic cajun style to get people to shell the big cash for her gigs.

    I’m not understanding……. MDNA hasn’t even went GOLD yet…. But her fans can pay all that $$$ to go & see her? But can’t support the album….. Something isn’t right here…… Is Madonna buying her own tickets? *starts to wonder*

    Madonna will be the first to tell you that she doesn’t think she is the greatest or has the greatest voice. Madonna is Madonna for her ability to keep MOST people interested. Even those that slam Madonna can not deny that secretly…when noon else is looking…they jam out to Vogue or some other catchy beat she has come up with.

    Now boring…um, Lady Gaga pushed herself to hard, to quick and now a good many who supported her are bored with this constant “freaky monster” crap.

    I love ALL music. It soothes the soul and lets the mind escape. There is no need to slam anyone, what does it really accomplish? Not a damn thing. Lifes too short to be miserable, trust me on that one!

    Madonna is a legend. Many don’t see that, but maybe they don’t matter and that is why they can’t accept her success.

    Madonna has made many people filthy rich. Including herself. Good for her! A powerful woman is something the World has always been afraid of.
