To the delight of her beloved fans, affectionately called #Fighters, May 2018 delivered Christina Aguilera‘s announcement of her first tour in a decade – the ‘Liberation’ tour.
Designed to support her latest album of the same name, the jaunt – which kicked off in late September – saw the Grammy winner crank out her greatest hits alongside some of the project’s gems in theaters and concert halls across North America.
A short, but sweet outing, the trek not only drew in great reviews from critics, but now that final box office figures are in, it apparently drew in a great response commercially as well…
Final Tour Gross: $8.4 million
Congratz are certainly due to Xtina. While the effort did not generate figures akin to the likes of some of her contemporaries, there are a number of factors to consider here. Beyond the size of the venues and the brevity of the venture (only 21 dates), it should also be noted the promotional push ahead of the tour (or the album it was built to support) was not nearly as strong as most – ourselves included – would have liked.
As over 90% of the tour’s dates sold over 90% of their available tickets, the 38-year-old has proven she’s still a hot ticket draw. Here’s hoping the figure acts as an incentive to tour again soon.
