Madonna Is Now The Highest Grossing Solo Act In Touring History

Singer Extends History Making Reign As Queen of the Road

Queen of Pop Madonna‘s ‘Rebel Heart’ era may have been accompanied by her worst-selling album ever and lowest grossing tour in over a decade, but that hasn’t stopped her (in true Madge fashion) from still emerging a winner.

As previously reported, this time last week the ‘Living For Love’ singer saw her name listed in history books as “the highest grossing female artist in touring history” as her current effort, the ‘Rebel Heart’ tour, helped push her career-long gross past the $1.2 billion mark.

Joining an exclusive group of hitmakers (all-male) who have grossed more than $1 billion over their collective efforts (Rolling Stones, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, and former nemesis Elton John), Madonna – with the inclusion of receipts from the tour’s last stop in Australia – can now boast leadership of the entire pack of solo artists.

Report: Madonna Makes History With ‘Rebel Heart’ Tour

Singer’s Career-Long Ticket Sales Cross $1B Mark Thanks To Her 9th World Tour

Queen of Pop Madonna proved a long time ago her reign was far from limited to pop charts.

Currently holding the record for the most successful tour ever by a solo act (see:  2008’s whopping $408 million-generating ‘Sticky and Sweet Tour’), the songstress is now making more noise in touring history books thanks to her current outing ‘The Rebel Heart Tour’ (christened after her 13th album of the same name).

And, while the ‘Living For Love’-led project is the worst-selling of her career, its supportive tour is singing a much different tune.

Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week In 1991 #TBT

Janet Jackson Dethrones Madonna’s ‘Justify My Love’

janet jackson thatgrapejuice love will never do

Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, just as our retrospective features ‘From the Vault’ and ‘TGJ Replay’  allow us the chance to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday of one artist, our newest feature Chart Rewind – a variation of our current Retro Rewind assay – accedes salutes to an entire era of music history.

This week we’ll go back to our jam ‘Love Will Never Do’ – the 7th and final single from Janet Jackson‘s magnum opus ‘Rhythm Nation.’  Reaching the summit of the Hot 100 this week in 1991, the song knocked nemesis, Madonna, from the top spot with her controversial hit ‘Justify My Love.’   This feat, we’re sure, gave Jan’s fans added satisfaction (as if they didn’t already have enough to boast).  For, ‘Love’ not only made the pop icon the only artist in history to achieve 7 top five singles from one album, it also gave her the distinct honor of being the only artist in history to have a #1 single over three different calendar years from one album.

Talk about iconic!

Get into this week’s ‘Chart Rewind’ below and see what other familiar faces you see in the top 25:

Did You Miss It? Madonna Plays Free Surprise “Concert” In Paris

madonna paris surprise concert

Is Queen of Pop Madonna becoming the queen of hearts?  Ask a few of her Parisian fans and they’ll probably say “yes” after the diva staged a surprise concert at the Place de la République in Paris (the site of tributes for the victims of the November 13th terrorist attacks).

Appearing at the location Wednesday evening after a sellout show at the Bercy Arena as part of her hotly-selling ‘Rebel Heart’ tour, the songstress took to Twitter to alert fans of the show.  Within minutes, droves showed up to croon out hits ‘Like A Prayer,’ ‘Ghosttown,’ and more with her.

Weigh In: 2016 Grammy Nominations’ Snubs & Surprises

grammy snub janet jackson 2016 thatgrapejuice

It’s that time of year again!

Indeed, the air is still buzzing as yesterday brought with it the highly anticipated 2016 Grammy nominations unveiled, per usual, via an announcement special weeks before the actual showing.  But, what also comes with the ‘per usual’ announcement are the jaw-dropping surprises, snubs, and all out “shut-outs” that accompany the annual spectacle.

Always a heated debate-starter, the coveted tally saw the likes of Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Rihanna, Madonna, and more all go without mention.

For Bieber, whose manager made headlines for his rant regarding his 2013 Grammy shutout, his long-awaited nod came this year as, otherwise, it would’ve been a fourth-go-round despite consistently clocking some of the year’s biggest hits.  Like the ‘What Do You Mean’ maestro, Scott has been very vocal about shut-outs in the past.  And, while Omarion‘s rant is the main protest making headlines, we’re sure many more are to come.

In the meantime, tuck in below for our list of other surprises and snubs:

Did You Miss It?! Madonna Performs ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’ & ‘La Isla Bonita’ Live On The ‘Rebel Heart Tour’

madonna-that-grape-juice-2015-191010

Madonna‘s ‘Rebel Heart Tour’ kicked off on September 9th at Canada’s Bell Centre much to the delight of her fiercely loyal fan base.

No doubt aware that her new live show would be compared to that of her old rival’s Janet Jackson the ‘Frozen’ chanteuse delivered a set whipped up to promote the tour’s supporting album by placing its material at the heart of its concepts.

Fortunately, that didn’t stop her from honouring the older songs in her discography with performances her fans hope will win over critics currently enamoured by Jackson’s ‘Unbreakable’ showings.

How she did it?
