Britney Spears’ ‘Femme Fatale Tour’ Rakes In $69 Million

Published: Thursday 29th Dec 2011 by David

 

If the last year in music has proved anything, it is that whatever  industry politics, changes in the chart system and unforeseen controversies throw at an artist, nothing can hinder the success of that performer if they are backed by a loyal and willing support base.

This week saw Pop icon Britney Spears learn that lesson all too well.

For, despite the lack luster sales generated by her latest ‘Femme Fatale‘ outing, its supporting tour has raked in a whopping 69 million dollars, beating the likes of Lady GaGa and Katy Perry on this year’s list of highest grossing Pop tours.

Full story below…

In at at #11, the tour- which had an average ticket price of $98-  made the exact total of $68.7 million, placing it two spots beneath Sade‘s ‘Sade Live’ which brought in an impressive $83 million.

Holding court at #7 is Rihanna‘s ‘Loud‘ Tour with a commendable $90 million made since kicking off in Baltimore on June 4th of this year.

Meanwhile, Lady GaGa‘s ‘Monster Ball‘ is this year’s #14 raking in a cool $63.7 million, even after hitting the road over two years ago in support of the performer’s second album ‘The Fame Monster‘.

9 places below GaGa is Jay Z & Kanye West with ‘Watch The Throne‘ which pulled in $48 million and 6 places above them is Usher‘s ‘OMG Tour‘ with $59 million.

Katy Perry‘s ‘California Dreams Tour‘ pulled $59 placing it firmly at #16 and in at #1 is U2’s ‘360 Degrees Tour‘ which generated a mind blowing $231 million after kicking off in Spain in June 2009.

 

Congratulations to all.

  9. lashab December 29, 2011

    Shitty writing….wish this d***** would put out the whole list…..and da rihanna shade…he’s a d***

  10. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) December 29, 2011

    Well, it wasn’t a long tour, just 6 months with a bunch of long breaks, so of course it wouldn’t be a blockbustep, but she did well 🙂 As I’ve said before, the ‘Femme Fatale’ campaign is not fully representative of Britney’s future endeavours and overall career.The label (Jive) was preparing to shut down at the time of the album’s release, so they tried to churn as many albums and singles out as possible in that time period to milk their artists for the last time.

    I hope Britney comes back like she should; energetic performances, great pop music, amazing videos (and decent wigs too please 😛 ).Maybe she’ll after all get to work with her favorite producers that Jive had blacklisted; Orbit, Bloodshy and Avant and Danja, maybe Billboard too (I LOVE his work, but maybe not for Britney necessarily.He’s AMAZING though!).

  11. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) December 29, 2011

    Oh and also CONGRATS to Sade!What a comeback!I hope a new album will be in the works soon 🙂

  12. Bey’knight December 29, 2011

    Lol 90million is the overall gross rhitards,
    78 is the no of cities she performed in for eg 10 O2 shows but all in 1 city – London
    Its counted like that for all artists every year
    Only rhitards will give it new meanin with their baseless nonsensical excuses
    Passed 100million my ass
    Take your kicks were u get em dont be inflatin s***

  13. pat December 29, 2011

    Rihanna slayed ur fav

  14. Jay Scorpio December 29, 2011

    TALK THAT TALK BYTCHES WHILE RIHANNA TAKES UR MONEY TO THE BANK…. WATCH N LEARN

  15. DrakeFan December 29, 2011

    Lol at flop ass Sam not posting the whole list. The only female headliner in the top 5 WW tour numbers…coming in at #4 Taylor Swift and my boo #9 Sade. US tour numbers #2 Taylor Swift and #7 Sade<<< Baddest b****** in the game!

  16. YOOSONDALOOSE December 29, 2011

    Damn thought she wouldn;t have got as much, and I thought Katy Perry would get a lot more than what she did, her tour went on forever! Well done Rihanna, The Throne and U2!

  17. Jason UK December 29, 2011

    90million for 78 shows how many shows did jay & west did that grossed 48million

  18. Royalkev December 29, 2011

    @Bey’Knight – I was wondering where the extra 10mil came from as well. Smh.

    Anyway, congrats to Britney, Sade and Rihanna. Those numbers are impressive. I wish people would stop repeat false information, Bey’s 4 went platinum worldwide inside of a month, it didn’t take 3 months. I don’t know why everyone gets so confused when it comes to Bey.

    As for Gaga, that thing been touring for 2 years and those numbers are quite surprising. I’m waiting for this figure to mysteriously increase to 150 million. I’ll be glad when all the hype and manipulation from her is no more. I’m no Madge fan, but if she takes her out for good I’d learn to like her.

  19. Bey’knight December 29, 2011

    @jason uk

    LIES

    90million for 99 shows in 78 cities

  20. Rellz December 29, 2011

    gaga is low cuz she was only finishin off her 2 year tour earlier this year

  21. [email protected] Please December 29, 2011

    90Mil is more then Ms.Beyonce 86mil for I Am tour.

    BOOKED ALRIGHT RIRI….

  22. Bey’knight December 29, 2011

    @royalkev

    Ikr, pollstar clearly stated cities/ shows. A rhitard interpreted that as 78 shows and the rest of the sheepish lot ran with it without lookin up facts lol

  23. coolx December 29, 2011

    How misleading. The Monster Ball Tour is one of the highest grossing tours of all time! The tour ended in May, and she didn’t do that many shows this year.

  24. Bey’knight December 29, 2011

    Why are people so confused. This figures are strictly for 2011 tour dates,

    Gaga’s tour grossed over 200million in total incl the 2010n 2009 dates

    Beyonce’s 86 million gross was for 2009 dates only + 17million for 2010 dates equals 103million+ dates

    Damn ive never seen a fanbase this pressed ever, so hellbent on comparing that untalented puppet to Beyonce, they cant even recognise when she’s done well otherwise lmao

  25. Unbiased thought December 29, 2011

    Some of Rihanna fans are so dumb.I swear im starting to think the 90’s babies have built in dyslexia. Because they always add more to rihanna’s sales and tour gross. Even if the number are right in front of them.
    There is nothing impressive about Rihanna’s whole career besides the fact she has 11#1’s at 23(Mad Props!!)
    Loud<The I Am World Tour.(Been to both brought my Beyonce ticket won my Rihanna ticket from the radio. That's why I can say that. her fans were hype and that's what made the show even enjoyable.

    If Beyonce went on tour this year….90million would be cut down to more than half. Stop reaching
    Anyway congrats to sade,britney and the rest.

  26. BAA December 29, 2011

    @B**** Please……..Thats a lie, u Low Life Bum B****! The tour made over 100million dollars u s***! The 86million was before she toured Trindad and the other countries around. So B**** fix ur facts H**! Anyway MRS. BEYONCE GISELLE KNOWLES is about to become The Richest Woman N Music PERIOD! LMAO HATERS BWAHAHHAHA

  27. Girrrl December 29, 2011

    Congrats to everyone! U2 will always be the kings of touring and Madonna will always be the queen.

  28. matt December 29, 2011

    Britney SLAYING rihanna SLAYING Gaga STILL SLAYING after a 2 year old tour and would have grossed WAY more but the tour finished in May this year, and u2 well, they f***** slay when it comes to tour revenue. As for Katy, mediocre album sales, mediocre tour gross but mega hit singles, just goes to show that anyone can buy a single when they’re discounted and remixed to f***!!

  32. ashley December 29, 2011

    But here’s the thing Taylor Swift slayed rihanna, britney, katy, and gaga.

  33. coolx December 29, 2011

    Taylor Swift at number 4? LOL! It’s a surprise to me Rihanna sells any tickets when she’s soooo boring on stage. People seem to be happy as long as she’s half naked, grabbing her crotch (like a million times), humping old men (badly) etc…. Such simple-minded people with such basic needs. SMH.

  34. jenna December 29, 2011

    Yaaay at Rihanna. Lmao at this dumb bias ass blog

  35. ARYO December 29, 2011

    lets not forget that femme fatale tour had only 37 shows, so rihanna stans, stfu, cuz if ff tour had as much shows as loud tour, then Britney would definitely outsell rihanna

  36. JohnVidal December 29, 2011

    Are the people saying what happened to Gaga serious? Can´t they read? The tour began 2 years ago and ended this May, so it´s obvious she was not going to be that high on a list like this one (2011)
    Anyway, it´s annoying how TGJ always writes a lot of text for only giving a few places of a list. Can you give all the info for once and stop being biased? This way retarded people who live in their happy and generic bubble will never learn who is who in the music industry

  37. Lax December 29, 2011

    Yeppppp Rihanna’s Album “Loud” Kicked Asses and took Names, bytches.
    And from this Day Forward i will Understand The HATE THATS ALWAYS LOGGED AGANIST HER.

    Britney Might Need Daddy to Buy Tampons
    Welllll at least Britney Has a Dad whos
    Very much in her Life & Career. At Least Britney
    have not been Mean Spirited and Screwed
    around like Others and Gotten Rid of the
    Main Hand That Fed Her Ass when she was
    to Small and Little to Fend for Herself. Her
    dad is doing what he has to do and that is
    better than crying Foul and Throwing her Dad
    Under the Train!

  43. Lax December 29, 2011

    Funny how the dam s*** talkers was Slobbing at
    the mouth with Joy when Rihanna’S s&m was
    Banned in 11 Countries in Europe and around the
    world and they Named Called Rihanna Til The
    Cows Came Home. With loads of Criitism and
    Bull about Hom Big of a s*** Rihanna was for
    doing the Video. And then when She was Suid
    For that Video then they Dug in again with their
    Bull S*** Tatics. And my Goodness I and the
    Navy Just Loves How Britney came to Rihanna’s
    Rescue with that Histo-rih Making Collaboration
    and After Rihanna and Britney did the Collab
    then RIHANNA was Saddled with all of the Bull
    About how she needed Britney to Get another
    #1. Well is amazes me of how after Rihanna
    and Britney did the Collaborating then there
    was nothing else spoken on or about S&B
    Being to sexually or not a dam thing else
    was spoken or said about s&m Rihanna
    and her Team leared the Law suit up because
    knowing that you have got to do what you
    have got to do and cleraing up the Pathway ahead
    of you and keep it moving.

    For Britney to be able to make 64Million without going
    on Tour is beyond amazing. That is what Others has done
    they have learned how to make their Out side Entities
    step up and help then while they or not on Tour or
    Dropping New Music. And that is what Rihanna has
    Tapped into Very well and shes on her way just like
    the Big Girls or doing. And theres nothing that makes
    the Navy any Happier than seeing and knowing that
    Rihanna’s “Loud Tour” Is a Wrap and shes Foot Loose
    And Fancy Free To Do what ever in the Pukkkkkkk she
    want to do.
    And for the IDIOT Who says we or silly for fighting
    about some Artist who does not know we Exist then
    Let you Mind Focus on the Fact that when you or the
    MOST POPULAR MUSICIAN ON THE PLANET , 2011
    THERES NOT MUCH THAT GET TALKED ABOUT ON
    THE NET WITHOUT YOUR CAZLLION OF FANS,
    TWITTER FOLLOWERS DON’T KEEP A BUG RIGHT
    IN RIHANNA ALL ABOUT WHAT IS STATED BY THE HATERS ON AND ABOUT HER, PERIOD. And theres nothing stated about it because it is what it is HATERS BACK AND FORWARD WITH MANY WHO SUPPORT RIHANNA IN EVERY WAY AND YOU CAN BET YO SWEET ASS THAT LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE HAS BACK UP FROM HER NEXT OF KIN FROM ALL AROUND THE GLOBE. AFTER ALL RIHANNA DOES HAVE 7 FAN
    CLUBS AROUND THE GLOBE. AND WHEN YOU BYTCHES DOWN GA GA,
    KATY, KE$HA, TAYLOR, BRITNEY AND ALL OF THE OTHER ARTIST TO TRY AND BASH THE HELL OUT OF THEM RESST ASSURED THAT THERES MANY WHO OR LISTINING AND PAYING ATTENTION EVEN ARTIST LIKE KESHA, JASMINE, JENNIFER, JESSIE J, ADELE, KELLY CLARKSON, AND COUTLESS OTHERS OR WATCHING ALL OF US.

  47. aisha aguilera keys December 29, 2011

    Wow. I’m not suprised by U2’s numbers, they win lots of dough off their concerts, but I’m suprised that Yeezy and J got so little money cuz I haerd the ticket sales were REALLY high, anyway congrats to Riri and BS for making so much dough despite their poor performance skills, and too everyone else, too.

  48. Minajesty December 29, 2011

    britney hasnt done a decent performance in years! and rihanna? shes a good pop artist but she isnt talented.

  49. Morgan December 29, 2011

    F*** Rihanna this is about britney!!!!!!!! Damn u s****.

  50. kelvin December 29, 2011

    Sorry to break it to u haters but the $90million is for 78 shows. How to know? Simply look under the average gross section. Ull see $1.15million for LOUD tour. If $90million was for 99 shows the average gross would be below $1million. So there u have it.
    Who run the world? It def ain’t beyonce cause we cnt remember who she is lmaoo

  51. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    @Samantha
    U’re such a bitter pathetic b****.

  53. Rihanna Stans = Broke Navy December 29, 2011

    LMAOOOOOOO @ BROKE NAVY TRYING TO SPIN THE NUMBER. RIHANNA STILL DIDN’T MAKE IT INTO THE 100MIL+ CLUB, BEYONCE (ALONG WITH TINA TURNER) ARE ALREADY IN THE HISTORY BOOKS FOR BEING THE ONLY BLACK FEMALE SINGERS TO GROSS A 100ML+ FOR THE WORLDWIDE TOURS. 103MIL>>>>>>90MIL. STAY MAD BROKE NAVY!

  54. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    Rihanna grossed $90 Million without even going to Asia (which is a huge touring market for westerner)

    And she sold out so many of her European shows (unlike Beyonce who didn t sellout much of her dates at all)…

    She couldve done more if she wanted, but she got busy with a new album, a new movie, a new clothing line….

    SLAYIN LIKE THERE’S NO OTHER!

  55. jking December 29, 2011

    If Justin Bieber did 100 shows instead of 50, he could’ve been the highest grossing pop “artist” this year…

  56. RICK December 29, 2011

    @KELVIN u just said the name of her song and called her name BEYONCE
    U A DUMB B**** AREN’T U ………………..

    CHEERS for US!

    *Sips Monkey Juice* I even need to buy more monkey juice because of all the Celebration we have been doing this month we just keep winning and winning it has become way to easy

  58. Rihanna Stans = Broke Navy December 29, 2011

    @TruthTeller.

    At least Beyonce was an all around seller with her worldwide tour,and didn’t need to tour in europe for entire tour to save face. Rihanna had so many cancellations and low ticket sales in the US. So of coz she had to do more dates in Europe to make up for it. Beyonce’s tour was smash hit in North America,Europe,South America,Asia and Africa. Stay mad and bothered!

  59. Rihanna Stans = Broke Navy December 29, 2011

    Why do the Broke Navy always trying to inflate numbers and s***?!? When the evidence is clearly present in their face. Rihanna’s tour is OVER,and she will NOT be seeing the 100mil+ club. Deal with it Broke Navy!

  60. RICK December 29, 2011

    AND THE ONLY REASON WHY SHE SOLD OUT THAT MUCH IS BECAUSE BEYONCE IS NOT TOURING IF SHE WAS
    WE ALL KNOW THAT THIS LIST WOULD HAVE MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE FOR HER AND ALL THE OTHERS ON THIS LIST U2 unstoppable but BORERI AND THE OTHERS
    NON EXISTENT

  61. RODRIGO December 29, 2011

    I LOVE BRITNEY SPEARS! I´M SO HAPPY FOR HER. SHE IS THE REAL PRINCESS OF POP!, SHE IS A LEGEND!

    BUT…. I AM A BIG RIHANNA FAN, AND I DON´T KNOW WHY YOU DIDN´T POST THE LOUD TOUR GROSS ??? HUUUUMMMMM LET ME THINK??, MMM I GOT IT!: IT´S ENVY HAHAHA. I LOVE RIHANNA WITH ALL MY HEART, SHE DESERVES ALL THIS SUCCESS.

    BY THE WAY, I LOVE BEYONCE TOO!, I THINK SHE IS A LEGEND, THERE’S NO ONE LIKE HER. SHE HAS THE VOICE, THE TALENT, THE SOUL, SHE GOT IT ALL.
    AND I DON’T KNOW WHY ARE YOU GUYS FIGHTING ??

    THESE THREE ARTIST ARE QUEENS, IN THEIR OWN WAY!!!

  62. Rihanna Stans = Broke Navy December 29, 2011

    I am Tour 103mil>>>>>>>>>>>90mil loud tour.

    Making the history books and all. I see why y’all upset. LOL

  63. WHUT December 29, 2011

    @Yellow gurl you remember that 700 comment thread when TTT got was released?! KIIIIIIII They were nutting EVERYWHERE!!! These basic s**** were cashing checks proof positive the Queen’s reign was about to be OVA!!! The Navy as usual warned the clowns all up in that thread and did the fools take heed?!! NOPE!! Fast forward to now and look at the poor bums. Ducking, Dodging, Scrambling and Deflecting for DEAR LIFE!! Constantly on DEFENSE as we so thoroughly predicted. LMFAO!!! It must suck being in such a bitter ass fanbase their fave in recent times has just perfected the art of losing so well.

  64. IT’S ALL GOOD!!! December 29, 2011

    That’s baby money compared to Rihanna’s 90 MILLION! 🙂

  65. . December 29, 2011

    You guys do realize that the only reason why Gaga got 60 million is because it’s only for this year, 2011. Her sales added with 2010 give her over 200 million in earnings!

  66. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    @RIHANNA STANS = BROKE NAVY

    Keep dreaming fool.
    Rihanna has already added 3 dates in South America & 1 date in the UK for 2012.
    U mad cus Loud Tour OUTGROSSED I Am Flop Tour ?????

    $90 Million >>>>>>>>>>>>>>$ 86 Million

  67. adele December 29, 2011

    Rihanna had 98 shows people, and 78 cities. She did like 30 shows in the UK alone. That 63 million for Lady Gaga is from 48 shows for 2011 alone, and TTT was released over five weeks ago, not three and only stayed one week on top of the world chart at #1, so please stop with the lies DAMN. Brittany did half the shows Rihanna did and grossed 69 million, so she’s done better than Rihanna…I swear these RITARD. For the person who said Beyonce only grossed 86 million, check Pollstar boo. Beyonce grossed over 103 million on her tour. It doesn’t even matter how much Rihanna made because after she pays for all the promo, the props, the dancers how much did she made? Please check FORBES list, and you will find that all the major singers made twice as much as her. There’s also nothing amazing about those #1 Rihanna has since she got busted for paying top 40 radio stations to play her songs, and there’s proof, she releases an album every year, and collab with every big rapper. Aint nobody jealous of Rihanna because she’s not on top, and they working her like a dog in heat. When others work as hard and promote as hard as she does they make almost 100 million a year. Rihanna can’t even make 30 million, and please stop mentioning her age because Taylor, Brittany, Beyonce, Miley, Mariah, etc accomplished way more than Rihanna at almost 24 years. All you guys talk about is #1’s. Rihanna stans please stop lying because it is so easy to go to the source, and prove your lies, so stop. Also, what is 6 million album sold in over a year? She promoted the hell out of LOUD. Her album should have decent sales since she did world wide promo, and did a 10 month…98 show tour.

  68. adele December 29, 2011

    Brittany topped Rihanna with only half the dates thats why she’s being praised. She didn’t even promote like Rihanna did. Her performances were crap, but people still paid to see her. Rihanna basically killing herself and still aint raking in the big bucks like Katy, Gaga, Beyonce, Brittany, Taylor, Justin, etc. I see why she alway look pissed off. I would be to if I was working that damn hard and everybody making three times as much as I did.

  69. adele December 29, 2011

    @truthteller.. why don’t you go to Pollstar and check the addtional dates that brought IASF to over 103 million. Another thing 87 million>29 million, and Rihanna basically lost her mind with the 98 dates that she did.

  70. kelvin December 29, 2011

    People need to get their facts right. LOUD tour took place within 7months and she did NOT cancel 1 date in US or reduce ticket sales that was LGOE tour so stop trynna make urselves happy. Rihanna groSsed $90million with 78 dates beyonce grossed $103million with like 120 dates. Shame.
    Also dyu knw that the promo for un4tunate is way more than the promo for LOUD? I mean even look at TTT outselling 4closure with 1 single nd no promo.
    Go on bey fans. U have every reason to be mad. I mean how cn this poor girl from a little island jst come nd send beyonce to the grave like that? Y’all have every reason 2 diss rihanna. I completely understand as do the rest of the navy. We jst having fun

  71. adele December 29, 2011

    For all the slow people who believe Rihanna only had 78 shows, click on the link. On the top shows the # of cities, and on the bottom shows the # of shows. Rihanna, did 99 shows in 78 different cities. Also, DAMN Taylor Swift, I don’t even like her, but can’t deny she a bad b****.

  73. adele December 29, 2011

    Okay, you guys are getting ridiculous. Beyonce grossed 103 million from 108 dates.

  74. adele December 29, 2011

    Didn’t Rihanna just had a Tour that just FLOPPED in 2010? , and Rated R didn’t do much better. Rihanna promoted the hell out of Rated R, and that s*** still flop, so everybody flop sometimes, and Rihanna had three flop albums, so whats your point. She even FLOPPED on Forbes.

  75. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    @Adele,
    why don’t u gove me a link with those additional dates?
    Cus the BeyH.I.Vs keeps on talking about them but I have yet see any pollstar article with those dates.

    $90 Million >>>>>>>>>>>> $86 Million

    STAY MAD!

    U keep talking abut additional dates for IASFlop tour as if Loud didn t just get 4 more dates confirmed for next year.

    Britney is a legend and I luv her so I am glad she s doing good.

    Congrats to Gaga. She really tore it up tour-wise.

  76. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    @Adele

    Rated R >>>>>>>> 4Closure.
    So what are u talking about.

    U’re just another BeyH.I.V hiding behind Adele’s screename. I’d be ashamed to if I was a BeyH.IV. so I understand.

    lol

  77. adele December 29, 2011

    @Kelvin you said Rihanna didn’t promte TTT, when she was spamming the itunes link to million world wide on twitter the day the album. That is the biggest promo you can get, and please don’t forget she was on tour during the release of her album. Rihanna and her fans know she can’t a break, she has to promo, oh I let me remind you of the deal her team made with top 40 radio stations to play her songs. Let’s not forget that. I guess now we know the reason for her not ranking higher on FORBES. She has to pay those bills.

  78. ISTANN4GAGA December 29, 2011

    A lesson in Math.

    86 Million in 2009
    + 17 Million in Mid 2010
    _____________________________

    $ 103 Million TOTAL revenue.

    (Did I miscount?I DON’T Think so)

    @JOSH

    Britney sells out concerts because her fans are really loyal.

  79. Bey’knight December 29, 2011

    U can keep lying to yourselves rhitards. When Beyonce grossed 100million+ it was a decade record for black artist so its already in history. Beyonce’s tour did not end in 2009 so its not about adding extra dates, it ended Feb 2010 and rihanna’s ended Dec 2011, she grossed less than Beyonce. Its sad how low u go to spin the facts 1st yall lied sayn the figure was only for 78 dates lol.

    I’ve always said, Rihanna will never be good enough for her own fans. Its all about Beyonce comparison. Too bad she doesnt have what it takes to be as great as Beyonce 🙂

  80. suga puss December 29, 2011

    I went to the Britney’s (twice) katy perry’s and Rihanna’s They were all great!

    @RICK

    WE ALL KNOW BEYONCE DOESN’T OUT TOUR BRITNEY!
    HATE A SEAT WITH THAT B*******!

  81. Bey’knight December 29, 2011

    Lol another thing that cracks me up:

    This is rihanna’s what, 4th ww tour, lgoe tour was basically one huge flop with the other two b4 that, 1st time she’s managed to gross over 30milion on a tour on her 4th attempt lmao

  82. Bey Fan… December 29, 2011

    Good job to all the artist…..

    Im kinda surprised (in a good way) with how well Loud tour did. So congrats to Riri and the navy

  83. usher December 29, 2011

    Usher did good considering its the continuation of the tour from last year. KING USHER

  84. Onyx December 29, 2011

    I was at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in June 20, 2011, the show was great, is just a pleasure to see Britney so close, i been in all her tours, go Britney.

  85. kimberly December 29, 2011

    you ritards need to know the difference between NET and GROSS. idiots idiots idiots, learn the differences between towns and cities, countries. lmao

    lord have mercy

  86. kimberly December 29, 2011

    To all ritards
    beyonce 86 milli belongs to her from her NET tour benji and other business ventures. after grossing over 100 milli on her tour
    \Rihanna 90 milli is her gross figure from her tour idiots

    you guys have s*** heads lmao

    @beyknight thank you for clearing these fools

  87. Gilberto December 29, 2011

    Britney Spears’ concert did better than what I expected. In Brazil, it was a disaster. She struggled to sell 50% of the avenue. Most of the tickets were given away for free. I ain’t kidding. And she had several $10 tickets on Groupon in US. She just sold out 10 concerts out of 70! But her tickets were so expensive that it helped to boost Female Fatalle Tour gross.
    Rihanna finally had a successful tour. Like always, UK saved her ass. In US, she sold several tickets for $10 on Groupon. LOL. Rated Flop Tour was a huge failure.
    I Am… Tour grossed $103 million. $86 million in 2009 and $17 million in 2010. 103 > 90. Do the math, please.
    I love how rock fans are loyal. U2 is out for decades and their fans still support them. I tried to buy a ticket for their concert in Brazil, but they all sold out in minutes! Damn!!! And they were really expensive.
    I expected bigger numbers from Katy.

  88. Gilberto December 29, 2011

    P.S. Queen Tina Turner and Queen Beyoncé are the only black female singers to have a tour grossing over $100 million. DEAL.

  89. kimberly December 29, 2011

    @ adele, thank you

    reading through these comments just prove how illiterate these children are. \they don’t even understand the words they use. total idiots. gaga, britney, kanye , jay tour dates are not even much and happen to pull in numbers. whwn they forbes lists comes around they will expect to see 90 milli. lmao.

  90. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    That Rihanna reign just won’t let up.

    WeFoundLuv is #1 on the WW charts for the 8th Week.

    Why does Rihnna keeps slayin the lessers like that?

    She slayin so Hard Samantha had to stop updating the world charts in order to avoid having a mental breakdown.

    LMAO

  91. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    BeyH.I.Vs keeps blowing smoke, but still can’t find a way to come up with a serious link to back their delusion.
    Show me the receitp mothafuckers… All I see so far is $86 Million on pollstar…

    where is the 2010 pollstar showing those other $17 Million ?????
    Rihanna also has more dates for next year.

    @Kevin
    “Rihanna groSsed $90million with 78 dates beyonce grossed $103million with like 120 dates. Shame.”

    LOL. You’re dumb, basic b****. You can read numbers, but you can’t understand them. You’re so illterate. Loud Tour grossed $90 from 99 concert shows. These 99 concerts were done in 78 cities. For exemple, Rihanna performed 10 times in London. It was 10 shows in 1 city. See?
    “I Am… Tour” grossed $103 million from 102 concert shows. In 2009, I Am.. Tour grossed $86 million from 93 shows, which were done in 75 cities. In 2010, it grossed $13 million from 9 shows, which were done in 8 cities.

    Now, basic b****, you should thank the Masters (aka me and the other).

    P.S. You know that the gross of Loud Tour goes to Jay-Z’s pocket as well. Beyoncé is way more richer now.

  94. really December 29, 2011

    Argo is so dumb. The Britney gross is based on 82 shows dumbass!

  95. really December 29, 2011

    Where’s the receipts that shows Beyonce earned $103 million?

  96. Gilberto December 29, 2011

    P.S.2. The $103 million came from 102 concerts. She had 108. IAT grossed way more than that. LOL. I didn’t even include the Special Tour for Las Vegas’ gross as well. IAT was massive.
    IAT > Loud.

  97. really December 29, 2011

    U idiots do realize the earnings Forbes kept reporting all year only goes from May 2010 to May 2011. Lol.

  98. commanderofthedancefloor December 29, 2011

    Keep trying to hate!! Fact is loud tour was only for 2011 while others tored for 2-3 years if rihanna was to extend her tour into next year it gross over 100 million easily! Why cant go give credit where it is due this is good.

  99. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    @GILBERTO

    Why do u keep using the same wikipedia lie?
    How about u click on their own link they give and see where it directs u.
    It directs u to Pollstar quoting Beyonce’s gross of $86 Million

    The BeyH.I.Vs have been lyin for so long they start believing their own lies.

    @Really
    There ain t no receipt cus they re liying.
    They keep blowing smoke but can’t deliver the receipt.
    BeyH.I.Vs = FAIL

    Excuses and excuses. This is one of the most stupid things I have read over here. Seriously. The demand of IAT was so high that Beyoncé couldn’t do all in 2009. In the end of the day, what really matters is how much it grossed.
    It’s a fact that IAT grossed more than Loud or any other Rihanna’s tour. It’s a fact that she and Tina are the only black female singers to have a 100-million tour.

    Navy’s tears taste so good!

  101. Gilberto December 29, 2011

    @TruthTeller
    Wikipedia? LOL. This info came from Pollstar. I’m trying to give you the receipts, but this is happening “NOTE: YOUR COMMENT HAS AUTOMATICALLY BEEN HELD FOR MODERATION AND WILL BE APPROVED SHORTLY.” Sorry. :__(
    But if you search for Pollstar Year End 2009 and Mid Year 2010, you’ll find what you’re looking for.

    There is no point in discussing this Beyonce sold over 100Mil and that’s what counts. People count the whole dates not yearly dates. It is from on era.

  104. Gilberto December 29, 2011

    @MissImpartial
    It isn’t my fault that Rihanna’s stans are desperate. Instead of being happy that Loud Tour was successful, they’re just trying to make excuses to make themselves believe it was bigger than I Am… Tour. It wasn’t. I Am… Tour grossed over $100 million and Loud Tour grossed $90 million. Both had two huge tours. Actually, they were one of the most successful tours done by black singers of all time.

  105. Leebe December 29, 2011

    What your forgetting is Lady gaga has the highest grossing tour out of Britney spears ,Rihanna , katy perry. with $227,400,000 sold totally beating there ass , Rihanna and katy perry are not even in the top 40 !!! Britney only comes close at 31st on the all time list, Lady gaga is 16th !!. Lady gaga’s tour ended in May, While femme fatal ended in december IT’s no wonder she has slightly beaten her this year by 1 or 2 million as she has been touring for 7 months LONGER and even then she is only scrapeing past her Lady gaga GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT PLEASE PEOPLE

  106. Leebe December 29, 2011

    MEDIATRAFFIC is NOT an official site for sales figures. only the billboard and RIAA can give accurate sales @truthteller. We found love still has a way to go to beat ,The black eyed peas,Ke$ha ,Lady gaga (two songs). Who are at 6.5 and 7 million respectively .

  107. Leebe December 29, 2011

    I suggest if Rihanna , Katy perry and Britney spears want to match sales of $227,400,000 They should be more dedicated to there fans and do more shows , and one thing for starters ARRIVE ON TIME and NOT HOURS LATE !!

  108. PollStar December 29, 2011

    LMAO @ R****** stans trying to inflate the numbers. That 90mil is basically combines grosses from both her tours(Last girl on earth and Loud). Hahahahah!

  109. Leebe December 29, 2011

    May i also remind people that Rihanna is not an all round artist she is a singles seller !! Her albums are not bad but they sell poorly in comparison to the likes of Lady gaga and Katy perry. She has yet to get a number 1 album after 6 attempts !! and her sales figures never surpass 8 million. but albums like The FAME sold over 20 million !! and born this way 8.6 million !! Teenage dream has sold almost 7 million !!

  110. MissImpartial December 29, 2011

    @LEEBE
    The reason Gaga has over 200+ Mil is because she is been touring for 2-3 years. Britney was touring for only 6 months. There is a difference. Congrats to everyone anyways. But Taylow Swift tour out grossed any of the ones were are debating about any ways.

  111. Liam December 29, 2011

    Album Sales (Pop, electro, Rnb) (female’s)… 2010 to December 2011: Lady gaga ”Born This Way” 8.2 million copy’s sold , Teenage dream 6 million copy’s sold , Rihanna ”LOUD” 6.9 million copy’s sold , Britney spears ”Femme Fatal” 3 million copys sold, Jenifer Lopez ‘Love?’ 1.2 million sold . Total figures: Lady gaga over 100 million records sold (3 years) , Rihanna 100 million records sold (6 years), Katy perry 75 million records sold (4 years), Britney spears 100 million records sold (14 years), Jenifer Lopez 55 million records sold . I rest my case

  112. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @MISSIMPARTIAL And you point being ?? If Britney and Rihanna wanted to gross that much they should tour more which is the point I’m making , Regardless of the length she has still outsold them , They obviously don’t care or have the passion to tour for that long , The fans DEMAND it.

  113. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @MISSIMPARTIAL yes Maybe Taylor swift did in ONE year but not Overall which was what is was referring to.

  114. MissImpartial December 29, 2011

    @Leebe
    That those numbers could have been reached or out sold by any female artist if they toured for so long.

  115. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @MISSIMPARTIAL 69 million for each year (3 years) is not 227 million , and what if she undersells in the 2nd or third year ??? So your theory is out of the window until one of them actually tours for 3 years . Let’s not forget britney had to half the price of her tickets and had plenty of nights where she failed to fill half the arena.

  116. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @MISSIMPARTIAL No offence, but you can’t assume somebody will sell something based on First year figures alone . It’s just a guess

  117. MissImpartial December 29, 2011

    @LEEBE
    You do know that Britney sold 130 Mil in 6 Months with her Circus tour? As for the 69Mil it is quite impressive as her album did not do well. Even you have to agree to that.

  118. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @MISSIMPARTIAL Being a Fan of Britney spears then YES i do know , Doesn’t really answer my question does it ???. As i both stated sales made in 6 months/1 year and sales made in 3 years are 2 difference things, You cannot assume if she sold 130 million in 6 months she would make 260 million in one year and 780 in 3 years , Her sales would most likely drop drastically each year , And vary. Even you must agree with that ? I went to her circus tour and yes it is pretty good considering the album sales, but don’t forget fans are going old and new as the set list is from 7 albums not just femme fatal 🙂

  119. WHUT December 29, 2011

    NAVY UPDATE!!!

    According to meditraffic the Queen has sold 365k WW this week

    Therefore in JUST 5 weeks TTT’s total sales amount

    504k+282k+249k+268k+365k = 1668000 in 5 WEEKS

    Yes you guessed it THAT RIHANNA REIGN JUST WONT LET UP.

  120. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @WHUT MEDIA TRAFFIC IS NOT AN OFFICIAL SITE !!! only figures from the billboard and RIAA are official and correct. Rihanna has sold 1.2 million worldwide with TTT not 1,600,000.

    US: 470,000 in the US so far certified gold by the RIAA OFFICIAL

    Considering Lady gaga’s born this way (which actually got to number 1 ) Sold over 1 million (platinum within 1 week) in the US alone in one week Even takeing off the sales of 99c before you start blabbing on about them aswell . BTW sold 4 million worldwide within 1 week , It’s extreamly poor for TTT in comparison !! as this is after 5 weeks .

    the Rihanna reign IS LETTING UP. Class dismissed

  121. WHUT December 29, 2011

    LOL!! Gurl f*** outta here with that clownshit. Mediatraffic is used by even this bum b**** blogger Samantha when the coward used to update numbers for 4gettable in the past. The Queen has sold basically 1.7 m WW and you will DEAL. The main Ki is the fact that her last SMASH album Loud is behind TTT at the same interval in WW sales. Not a damn thing is letting up heck if anything our ‘boa constrictor’s’ grip got even TIGHTER. KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

  122. WHUT December 29, 2011

    Oh a Britney fan? I see why you’re mad at mediatraffic recently now. KIIIIIII Gurl calm yo tits Brit is a sales legend with the right marketing and she has a chance of slaying the WW scene once more.

  125. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    1.7 Million in 5 weeks with only 3 promo performances and 2 singles.

    I just can;t at the slayage.
    1.9 Million next week is in the bag.

    LMAO @ TTT selling in 6 weeks without promo almost the same amount as 4closure sold in 6 months with Beyonce being on every show that would have her and releasing an entire video anthology along 5 or 6 singles.

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  126. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    @POPQUEEN

    Britney aint back. She NEVER left.
    Her last tour grossed over 100 Million and she barely left the states.

    L E G E N D

  127. WHUT December 29, 2011

    Exactly @truth chances of a thread on all this slayage?

    0.00000000000001 %

  128. TruthTeller December 29, 2011

    @LEBEE

    U must be 1 dumbass
    TTT has sold 1.2Million WW?

    U do know that just in US (470,000) & UK (660,000)

    She’s already above 1.13 Million right.

    So according to u she sold less than 100k in france, germany, canada, australia, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, Italy….. COMBINED

    U’re so dumb indeed.

    Sigh… Now I know Sam is a shady c***, and we should all call him out when he is, however, some of you are so easy to drag and deserve. Rihanna’s tour is the #7 grossing tour of the year. The only female higher than her is Taylor Swift on the list. Can’t the Rihanna Navy just be glad at that and move on?! No, y’all have to be dragging Beyonce, because in some of your narrow minds, everything is a competition. It’s NOT.
    Some of you disgust me sometimes. And i’m Navy all day every day.

  131. Junior in Jamaica December 29, 2011

    It’s funny how Rihanna beat them ALL yet you didn’t include her in the headline?

  132. NT December 29, 2011

    Congrats Britney , people always come and see Britney put it DOWN . Also it’s based on cities not the amount of shows , Rihanna has done 99 shows in 70+ cities , so her fans should actually learn there facts .

  133. Leebe December 29, 2011

    Please people speak english !! not ghetto I can’t understand what the f*** your saying @WHUT @TruthTeller You have not ‘slayed’ anything , TTT has sold 1.2 million , Save your wikipedia and media traffic figures because they are not correct and truly laughable sources, The RIAA and billboard (go listen to the radio they announced it on the chart show) said she sold 1.2 million SO FAR the rest is just shipping sales. I went to her concert !! she screamed out ‘ SO FAR WE HAVE SOLD JUST OVER 1 million copys of TTT’ I am a massive fan of Rihanna but I’m sorry you stans are just pushing the b*******, Even i can admit overall she has sold poorly with her album in comparison to loads of other artists this year . You have got to learn to stop being so brainwashed.

    Even 1.6 million is still POOR so that changes nothing even if i was wrong , She is dropping in the Album charts worldwide !! so how the f*** can she sell 350 thousand by next week ???

    It’s funny how websites and TV shows don’t use Media Traffic as an official source AS ITS ALL GUESS WORK and NOT official . any idiot can post a figure up, When the RIAA and world chart company’s announce the true figures with a certification I don’t believe anything . Its harder then you think to count record sales seeing as they don’t have an accurate way of tracking individual cd’s, Mostely it’s based off shipping .

    Insult me all you like I’m not a child I don’t respond to abuse,It in fact proves to me i have somehow stuck a nerve with you 🙂 .

    Repeating the words ‘ Slayed and bitter b****’ is not earning you any brownie points childrens , 🙂 try again

    @TRUTHTELLER 3 promo performance’s and two music video’s with her album being advertised on Youtube, Facebook ,Itunes,TV,and every music store in the country with banners and posters galore .

    WHAT A LACK OF PROMO !!, I MUST SAY !! …

    Where else do you want her to perform ?? From outer space perhaps ???? LMFAO

    In case you can’t tell i was being sarcastic .

  135. Jo December 29, 2011

    @Leebe YES i was there as well XD xxx , In all fairness she did scream out just over 1 million sold 😀 I was there too Xxx . People who obsess over record sale’s like @TRUTHTELLER and @WHUT are not true fans they must feel insecure about there success and lack the understanding about there music.

    It’s the music which matters guys c’mon. stop treating artists like country’s at war

    @Truthteller @Leebe must be a trolling, I simply refuse to believe the woman is this much of a clown. Then she further goes on to claim 1.7m in 5 weeks of an album sold in the internet leak & downlolad era is poor. I can appreciate trolling but there’s no excuse for it being this weak. Gurl step your p**** up, this s*** is embarrassing.

    In late May 2009, Knowles’ label announced through a press release that the singer decided to set aside 2,000 seats for each date on her forthcoming North American tour at a discounted price of $20. After already selling 1,000 tickets per show for the special low price, the last 1,000 discounted seats for each show were made available to the public on May 29 2009, 2009 through Ticketmaster (with the exception of the artist’s four-night residency at the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas)………..and talking about rihanna

    Dodge 7# ”Media traffic” LOL a site run by anonymous people with no official connection with RIAA or nelson soundscan Which means they have no possible way of knowing what the figures are. HMM SURE sounds like Real evidence to me, LMFAO!!!!!.

  154. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @WHUT Well that is Proven wrong again as it sold well over 91,000 units in the UK ALONE, What about Germany , Canada, France ?. Uk and US alone come to 300,000

    Proof again MEDIATRAFFIC IS WRONG.

    How much more is needed ??

  155. Commander of the RihannaNavy December 29, 2011

    @Leebe
    Your numbers are all false. Mediatraffic isnt the most liable source, but its pretty accurate. Please find me a link that says BTW has sold over 8million. Because from what I understand, it has barely sold over 5million. And Ke$ha’s Tik Tok has sold well over 9million digital downloads, its the biggest song of the decade currently

  156. WHUT December 29, 2011

    So she sold nothing in none of the other country’s gurl? 300k is your final answer?

  157. RATEDXXX(tricks are for kids) December 29, 2011

  158. Leebe December 29, 2011

    I don’t hate Rihanna i am a Fan, I just HATE incorrect figures .

    Now i’m disagreeing with you and saying Rihanna sold MORE which prove’s my point

  159. Commander of the RihannaNavy December 29, 2011

    @Leebe
    Billboard only post on numbers from that respective country.

  160. Leebe December 29, 2011

    Nobody said i was a Lady gaga Fan i was simply comparing it to BTW as you claim ‘She is the queen ‘ with amazing sales . A statement i proved false

  161. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @COMMANDER OF THE RIHANNANAVY YES and they are the numbers I’m talking about , I said OFFICAL chart companys ..Meaning all over the world .

    Lady gaga herself announced she sold 7 million 3 months ago . on every TV show and promo they say 7 million or almost 8 million . not a fan a fact

  162. WHUT December 29, 2011

    Leebe the only things you proved in here gurl is either A) You’re a toddler B) You’re a fool or C) You’re a foolish toddler. Gurl sashay to your milk,cookies and bedtime story this is grown folks business.

  163. Yea i said it December 29, 2011

    @LEEBE: WW sales: @Drake, Take Care 173,000 (1,442,000) | @LadyGaga, Born This Way 125,000 (5,387,000).

  164. SelenaGomezFan December 29, 2011

    6 months and she grossed 69million. Lessor fans can stay mad, cause their fave will NEVER. Britney is the queen.

    @LEEBE
    If Britney toured as long as GaGa, her tour would gross triple the amount of what GaGa grossed. #fact

  165. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @WHUT exactly what I’m trying to say Media Traffic said she sold 400 thousand WW, But she definitively 100% sold 207 thousand in the US and 91,000 in the UK which is almost 300 thousand ALONE for two country’s , Which Proves Media Traffic is WAY off, Because what about ,Germany, Australia, Canada, France etc… etc … ????

    I’m saying Media traffic is wrong and she in fact sold WAY more then 400 thousand more like 700 thousand .

    you must get my point now ??, There not just off they are WAY off the real figures .

  166. Leebe December 29, 2011

    Dodge 7# I have proved my point. Whatever you say . I can’t continue to argue with children go and read your Media traffic site I will go listen to some Rihanna 🙂

    Talk that Talk bitchs

  167. Commander of the RihannaNavy December 29, 2011

    @LEEBE
    Lady Gaga also said Madonna emailed her saying she was ok with Born this Way sounding like Express Yourself. Madonna’s camp denied ever emailing her anything. Lil Kim said her mixtape was top selling on PayPal but there is nothing to prove that. People lie, numbers dont. Please find me a credible source that stats that BTW has passed 8million in world wide sales

    If Rihanna were to get on every t.v station and say TTT has already sold 50million copies would it make it true?

  168. Leebe December 29, 2011

    @SELENAGOMEZFAN you cannot Assume she will sell 69 million the next 6 months , She may only sell 20-30 million. Sales figures reluctance. Besides she has already toured in the major country’s any more dates and she would struggle to sell tickets . Remember she halved the price’s of her tickets and had many shows where only half the seats were sold towards the end of the tour . Case closed

  169. Commander of the RihannaNavy December 29, 2011

    We will go by Mediatraffic and you go by the words of a liar. #MovingOnNow

    @COMMANDEROFTHERIHANNANAVY

    What has Madonna got to do with anything I said and the email Lady gaga sent ? I don’t care More babble more facts please .

    If Rihanna went on to say she sold 50 million of TTT that would make her a lier same for Lady gaga ,They have no reason to Lie . if it was 5 million she would say 5 million same for Ri-Ri.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0_M0bTJmCg

    On the xfactor UK for example go to 5:00 7 million copys ! announced and that was months ago.

    But you believe Media traffic ??? over the most watched show in the UK . They cannot announce made up figures to 12 million viewer, Espicially if the figures are from the official chart company’s which the x factor use .

  176. Yellow Gorillah December 29, 2011

    Lady Gaga’s Born This way was in the END of Year Chart’s With 5.4million SOLD!!!

    Nonbody knows where her Stans are getting 8million from it’s a LIE and they need to stop! to be honest I don’t think BTW Will even sell 8million there are NO Singles left on the album Marry There NIGHT FLOPPED! After doing More PROMO then Britney And Rihanna put Together…

    But Can we GET into the fact rihanna gone sell 2million in less then 4months??????? Because it’s taken certain people DECADES to sell 2million while we over here relaxing with number’s coming in LOOOOOOOOL!

  177. Leebe December 29, 2011

    😉 good day to you and happy new year

  178. Perry Power December 29, 2011

    If you click the “Congradulations to all” link you would see why the California Dreams Tour grossed in average: the average ticket price was $49.28. They should have been at least $60.00 on average IMO

  179. Leebe December 29, 2011

    I’m not repeating it all again. Goodbye X 😀

  180. Yea i said it December 29, 2011

    @LEEBE xfactor hype everybody up look at kelly performance

  181. Commander of the RihannaNavy December 29, 2011

    @Leebe
    This is the last time I respond to you. I brought up Madonna to prove a point:Lady GaGa has lied to make herself look good before. The point of me bringing up Lil Kim: to prove that artist have lied about their commercial performance before.

    Lady Gaga does have a reason to lie because, no shade intended but, 5.4million world wide for an album she called the album of a generation that shes been promoting since the 2010 VMAs is pretty bad, especially considering her previous success

    Showing me YouTube videos of X-Factor announcing sales figures doesnt prove anything. For all you know, they got those facts from Gaga & her team which, like I said before, would lie to make herself look good. The Voice and ABDC have both announce false facts about sales figures on their shows.

  183. Legendtina4life December 29, 2011

    Britney has some dedicated fans. Anyone who is willing to suffer her zombie-walking-on-stage performances is a true fan. They should expect better from her, considering performing was the only thing she was good at

  184. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie + Amy Winehouse +Steve Jobs) December 29, 2011

    Wait, wait wait. . . Where are all the assholes who said that Rihanna’s tour didn’t make any money because she wasn’t on Billboard’s tour list? I know you dumbfucks feel mad STOOOOPID, now!

  185. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie + Amy Winehouse +Steve Jobs) December 29, 2011

    Where all the bum b****** at that said that Rihanna’s tour wasn’t making bank because the tickets were half price and s***? Aw yeah, punks. So, Rihanna racked up 90M in tour receipts off discount tickets?

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  186. Jess December 30, 2011

    HAHAHA! Gaga had TWO WHOLE YEARS for her tour and she still didnt beat Britney’s 6 MONTH tour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  187. KAY December 30, 2011

    Rihanna ass lucky this tour didn’t flop like her 2010 LGOE tour, because she wouldn’t be abe to live it down having two flop tours back to back. From 99 dates her tour grossed 90 million, not 78 dates. It’s 78 cities with 99 show dates. You people love inflaing s***, and don’t worry about Katy Perry because at the end of the day Katy earned twice as much on FORBES as Rihanna did, so where is her money going?

    LOUD did not sell 7 million, a month ago it was at 5.3 million so where did those extra million plus sales come from? Stop the lies. Yall mofo talking about TTT album, that s*** was released during the holiday season when album sales are the highest, and like someone said earlier she was tweeting millions of people the link of her album, begging people to buy it. I wouldn’t be surprise if she releases another album in 2012. That chick is desperate as hell releasing albums every year just to get #1’s, so sad.

  188. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ December 30, 2011

    Congratulations to all! I’m surprised ANYBODY would pay to see Britney. FF was an.okay album but Blackout>>>>. Rihanna did gross way more than her previous tour. The LOUD era has been her most successful, but I did prefer the RR era because of the music and her fashion game was better.

    But, again, I hate misinformed people. Yes, her tour did gross 90 million, but with 99 shows NOT 78. 78 represents the number of cities.

    Beyonce did not gross 86 million TOTAL, that number is only for the 2009 year. She had more shows in 2010 that grossed an additional 17 million. Receipt?

    http://www.pollstarpro.com/specialfeatures2010/2010MidYearTop50WorldwideTours.pdf

    Please children, learn how to read graphs (78 cities/99 shows). Then learn how to do simple math (86 million from 2009 + 17 million from 2010 = TOTAL gross, with emphasis on TOTAL)

    The end.

  189. .. December 30, 2011

    Lady Gaga did like 37/39 tour dates to gross 63 million while Rihanna had to do 90 something to gross 90 million. Gaga has a better average. Don’t even get me started on Katy Perry’s pathetic numbers.

  190. .. December 30, 2011

    and the Monster Ball raked in 227 million; these numbers are just from the remainder of the tour dates from 2011 before the release of her album.

    I have never seen a time when people could not rejoyce because their Fave made a new Milestone, man the hate you can cut it with a stick one thing is for certain its okay if RIHANNA did not get a HEADER Because she has made it a poing to tell the Haters in so many words to kiss her ass sunny side up. Hey rejoyce Rihanna has made it through the Valley and shes on Higher Land now and she never has to struggle again Ever. Let them walk through brick walls let the do what ever in the hell they want to do including hating on rihanna because hey rihanna made it throught and she don’t have a mofo thing to prove to the lessors. What is
    so dam funny is how many time they typed Beys name on a Rihanna and Britney post. I have never seen so much trying to get that 17Million in that bey had that carried over into the next year but hey it don’t count they or counting from may to may you dumb asses. The Forbes list tallies from May of one year to may of the next year Therefore bey did make more but she did not make it when she made the 86 Million and dsid any one notice that bey was #12 and Rihanna was #7 and also pay close attention to that third line and from the looks of things Rihanna made more Per Tour Stoo then Bey did. When they mentioned that bey made over 100 that was a figure of speach you dam bee h**’s dam you all or some sick little puppies and need some TLC . Your hating asses can’t stand the fact that even though you claim that theres a million and one thing wrond with Rihanna and all of her performances yet you bust your asses to try and still talk her dowm. Well tyoe and keep beating the s*** out of that type writer trying to hurt Rihanna and her Navys FEELING BUT HEY YOU CAN NOT DO IT BECAUSE WE OR HAPPPPPPPPPPY, NO MATTER WHAT LOOSER BYTCHES.

  192. Joe December 30, 2011

    I just can´t @ Taylor slaying those other b****** so effortlessly. And she still has 12 sold-out concerts to go on that tour. Meaning she will end up 115 mil. Keep hiding you head in the sand stans.The real touring forces are Gaga and Taylor. Those other h*** do not come close.

  193. I’ma have to send her to her maker December 30, 2011

    Britney is way past her sell-by date. every couple of years she makes another “comeback” with the same generic music, doing whatever music is on the charts to stay safe. she had talent back when she started but now she cant compete with the likes of Beyonce, Adele, or even Rihanna.

  201. sam January 2, 2012

    love britney!!

  202. rorymaynor January 4, 2012

    @kevin ……..
    These ppl are upset because Rihanna is doing the damn thing, but i must correct a lot of people. The LOUD tour had 98 dates. She cancelled two dates because of the flu, which left 96 dates. The reason why it says 78 is because multiple shows performed in one city is counted as ONE. she performed shows in the same city plenty of times (example: she did 10 shows in London)

  203. Y.Y January 5, 2012
