To Top


Rihanna is closing 2011 with a bang.  Everyone’s favorite bad girl, will usher in the new year with a very healthy bottom line; her “LOUD” tour grossed $90 million and according to Pollster, was ranked #7 in their Top 25 World Wide Tours. Come inside to read more…………………..

According to POLLSTAR, which is well known for ranking the Top 25 Worldwide Tours for 2011, Rihanna is the Queen of the R&B Pack with $90M in ticket sales.  She wrapped up another tour and went on her LOUD tour for 6 months all this year. 
U2 was the #1 grossing act with $231M and Taylor Swift grossed over $104M.  While these aren’t the amounts the celebrities get to take home themselves, they definitely get a great amount of it after their crews, management and third party promotion companies are all paid.
Sade brought in $83 million dollars, followed by Usher with $59M and The Throne (which only toured a little over 2 months) with $48M.

In addition to her concert tour, RiRi dropped her sixth album “Talk That Talk” and was recently embroiled in a  nasty exchange of words with the editor-in-chief  of a Dutch magazine, which subsequently led to her resigning her post.
