With the rush of music concerts last year like Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Justin Moore tour 2015, it will be interesting to know what concerts made the most revenue. Naturally, concerts of the biggest names in the industry raked in the most profit, considering the thousands of fans willing to splurge bucks just to see them live. Here’s a list of the top five best grossing concerts in 2013:
- Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band
Bruce Springsteen is one of America’s most loved rock artists. Since 1970, he’s been backed by the E Street Band in concerts that last up to three hours. He is best known for his albums Born in the U.S.A. and Born to Run. In 2013 they went all over the world to play live in Latin America, Europe, and Australia. This tour grossed about $145.4 million US dollars.
- Justin Bieber
Is it any surprise at all? Justin Bieber is one of the hottest pop stars of the generation today. Teenage girls love him all over the world, apparently. In 2013 the Baby Baby singer went on his Believe tour to Latin America, Europe, and Asian countries, including the Philippines where he famously donated and helped Typhoon Haiyan victims. His tour earned $169 million US dollars.
Pink’s The Truth About Love tour showed in Australia, Europe, and North America. She sang Raise Your Glass, Just Like a Pill, U + Ur Hand, but those who went to her concerts anticipated her singing the hit Just Give Me a Reason. Her tour earned a staggering $170.6 million US dollars.
The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour was such a big hit, but nobody is really surprised. Beyoncé has this magnet effect that draws concert-goers wherever part of the world she’s in. She performed all over North and South America, Europe, and Oceania. Her tour grossed $188.6 million US dollars.
- Bon Jovi
And the highest grossing 2013 concert tour is Bon Jovi’s Because We Can. The band hopped all the way from the North America to South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Performing hits like You Give Love a Bad Name earned the band a skyrocketing $259.5 million US dollars.
