Winning! Beyonce’s ‘Formation’ Tour Racked Up Over $250 Million

Final Figures Puts Diva Far Ahead of the Year’s Competition

thatgrapejuice-beyonce-formation-tour-250-million

If you needed any reminder why Beyonce is undoubtedly the Queen recent Billboard receipts should more than suffice.

Indeed, the Grammy-winning diva – who dominated box offices worldwide with her critically acclaimed ‘Formation’ stadium tour – may have wrapped the high octane set last week, but official figures tallied after the trek’s final curtain call are certainly hitting a high note in her favor.

Billboard has the details below:


Beyonce’s Formation stadium tour wrapped Oct. 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., as an unqualified blockbuster, taking in over $256,084,556 and selling 2.2 million tickets, according to Billboard Boxscore. The tour, which began April 27 at Marlins Park in Miami, averaged a whopping $5.2 million in gross and 45,757 paid attendance per show. – via Billboard

        Sorry my comment above wasn’t finished lol!

        I know it’s crazy! She just might become Tina Turner stat and be performing Stadiums well into her 70s 👏👏👏!!!
        .
        She truly is a master of the stage and there’s still room for so much more growth! Her visuals and productions have gotten better. Her song transitions are insane! I can’t wait for the next tour! I really hope she starts to factor technology into her performances. Just imagine visuals like her six inch, MIA Crazy In Love performance and Partition performance. She would become an unstoppable touring force!!!!

    When will my fave Rihanna? Anyway I thought I’d share this story because I remember this commenter talking about Beyonces Impact or whatever and trying to say Rihanna has none. So I was at the club and 7/11 was playing club was jumping but not really. B**** when Work came on the whole club was on fire like I’m telling you everyone went off! It brought tears to my eyes because you know. I know Beyonce is stronger singer/dancer then Rihanna but i still love Rihanna a million times more.

The Slavi used that as a receipt so hard and clinged to it so hard! @Cinnaracists was talking about how her “inside” friends knew all the “tea” and that Beyoncé alienated herself with Formation and that her tour would flop LOLOLOL!!!

    Congrats girl…
    Beyoncé like to perform but she’s clearly tired of all this tour stuff…she have a daughter now you know. That’s why she made a stadium tour with less dates to do what she likes and rest too. 2hours of show per night it’s exhausting she was really in a beast mood during the mcwt.
    She did not want to break any records she could have add more dates for that matter…but Beyoncé is really a Queen she’s like “I could have outgrossed Madonna if i want so i let you see that i can but i won’t because I have a daughter and a man to take care of “

    Does anyone know which one is the biggest tour ever? I mean the numbers? I suppose women wise Madonna has the first one and Beyonce is second, but who outgrosses them? I mean bands or males?

    I don´t give too much credit to numbers which are not adjusted by inflation though. Same way with box office. If it were for propaganda and prices constantly going up one could think Frozen is the most successful animated film ever lol when it is so far from such thing. I mean, Michael tours had to be huge, weren´t they?

    These artists are in it to make money. They’re not competing with the next artist for who could sell the most tickets or do the most shows. I know Beyonce’s ticket are very expensive, which does help her numbers, but people are willing to pay so why not. Stop calling everyone else a flop. I know their pockets say otherwise. Everyone has their strengths.
    Mariah, one of the greatest songwriters/selling/vocalist, 18 #1’so (17 written by her).
    Rihanna, sells the most singles, 15 # 1’s
    Madonna, the female biggest touring artist/highest selling female artist.
    Beyonce, touring force and Grammy’s.
    Plus many achievements fromy various artists!
