To Rule the Road
Madonna’s “Sticky & Sweet Tour” was the biggest-grossing music tour of 2008 in North America, raking in $105.3 million, concert tracking magazine Pollstar said on Monday.
The Material Girl, whose 58-show world tour finished in Brazil last week, was closely followed by another solo diva – Canadian-born Celine Dion, who made $94 million in North America from her first tour since ending an almost five-year residency in Las Vegas a year ago.
Rock veterans The Eagles were third on Pollstar’s list, grossing $73.4 million for their tour to support possibly their last studio album “Long Road out of Eden”.
Pollstar’s Top 10 list did not include global tour earnings for the year.
