The Sticky & Sweet Tour is Finalist for 2009 Billboard Touring Awards
Madonna’s unparalleled Sticky & Sweet Tour is up for two important Billboard 2009 Touring Awards – Top Tour and Top Draw.
The 2009 Top Tour Award goes to the top money grossing act, and Madonna is a finalist with two other acts: U2’s 360 Tour and AC/DC’s Black Ice Tour.
The 2009 Top Draw Award goes to the top ticket selling act, and Sticky & Sweet is a finalist with the same two tours: 360 Tour and Black Ice Tour.
Billboard will bestow these important music industry awards at a special reception in New York City on Thursday, November 5, 2009.
Note that the 2009 Touring Awards are based on global box office numbers reported to Billboard Boxscore from Oct. 1, 2008, through Sept. 30, 2009. These eligibility dates cover the latter part of Madonna’s 2008 North American leg of Sticky & Sweet, and cover the full 2009 European leg of Sticky & Sweet.
Madonna’s position as the only female finalist for these two significant awards further cements her unchallenged status as global superstar.
