Beyonce’s “Mrs. Carter World Tour” has officially passed the $100 million mark in gross sales.
According to reports, the 32-year-old superstar hit the monumental moment after earning $44.9 million in box office sales from the Latin America and Australia leg of her tour. This brought the overall gross to “$104.3 million from more than 883,000 sold tickets at 59 performances, based on box office stats reported to Billboard.”
Other notable mentions on top of Billboard’s Hot Tours ranking include Beyonce’s husband Jay Z and his Roc Nation artist Rihanna:
Keeping it in the family, husband Jay Z joins Beyoncé on the Hot Tours recap, taking the No. 6 ranking from ticket sales at two venues on the European leg of his Magna Carta world tour that kicked off in early October. This week’s tally includes $6.8 million in revenue from arena dates in London and Zürich. In London he played four nights at the O2 Arena (Oct. 10-12, 14) with the number of sold tickets just under 57,000. Zürich’s Hallenstadion drew more than 10,000 fans to see the Grammy-winning rapper during his trek through 12 European cities that wrapped at the end of October.
Rihanna takes the second slot on this week’s Hot Tours tally with sales reported from the final nine weeks of her Diamonds world tour that ended on Nov. 15. The fall tour covered cities on four continents beginning in Asia with two sellouts at the CotaiArena. Located in the Chinese territory of Macau, the 15,000-seat arena logged an attendance total of 24,872 from performances on Sept. 13 and 14. Concerts in six cities in Australia and New Zealand followed including a three-show stint in Auckland with more than 33,000 tickets sold for sellouts on Oct. 6-8.
Bey’s region is far from over. She’s scheduled to return to North America in December and wrap up the tour with more than 105 shows under her belt.
