Beyonce Tops Touring Chart With $210 Million Haul
Beyonce has rocketed to the top of Billboard’s Hot Tours chart after raking in $210 million from the first two legs of her global Formation tour. The R&B superstar wrapped up the second leg of the trek in Europe on August 3, and she’s currently vacationing with her husband Jay Z before resuming the tour in New Jersey on September 7.
The Formation World Tour began in Miami, Florida back in April. Beyonce’s biggest show to date came when she took over the Stade de France in Paris on July 21 – over 75,000 tickets were sold for the gig, making it the tour’s best-attended show. Billy Joel is second on the new Hot Tours chart, and Shawn Mendes comes in third, ahead of Mumford & Sons and Maroon 5.
