The wins continue to accrue for Bruno Mars.
Indeed, the crooner is still riding the wave of success from last year’s ’24k Magic’ album – and in a major way.
Full story below…
Renown aggregate Pollstar have released their year-end totals and its revealed Mars’ ’24k Magic Tour’ to be the highest grossing solo trek of any act.
Having commanded a colossal $200.1 million (and counting) at the box office, the 32-year-old is only bested by U2, Guns N’ Roses, and Coldplay on the count. Here’s how his numbers stack up:
#4 Bruno Mars
GROSS: $200.1 Million from 121 shows (92 sold-out)
Average ticket price: $98.57
Average tickets per venue: 22,066
Total tickets: 2,030,029
Average gross per show $2,175,000
And the slay doesn’t stop there, because Mars will continue playing shows internationally right through to Summer 2018 when he’ll round off with a stadium run in Europe.
The sheer scale of the tour highlights why Bruno is yielding the results he’s yielding.
In an era where artists are pouring out music like water from of a tap, there’s something refreshingly nostalgic about Bruno’s longitudinal approach.
He dropped a 9-track album, released multiple videos, rocked the TV and touring circuit, and will continue with more shows. All over two calendar years.
Times have changed and said approach won’t work for everyone, but he proves that serving up quality material, believing in it, and pushing it aggressively still…works.
