New Madonna tour set to be amongst Top 10 highest-grossing of all time
Madonna’s upcoming 'MDNA' world tour is set to become one of the Top 10 highest-grossing of all time, according to Live Nation Global Touring chairman Arthur Fogel.
The Material Girl’s second tour since signing a ten year deal with the American entertainment company was rumoured to have been suffering from poor ticket sales, however, Fogel told Billboard.biz that the overall picture remains bright:
He said: "This tour is completely on track to end up in the top 10 tours of all time, especially considering we haven't put South America or Australia on sale. To say this tour is not performing is so off base I don't even know what to say. When this tour is said and done, combined with 'Sticky and Sweet,' you're talking $750 million in gross ticket sales. That sounds pretty impressive to me."
Fogel admitted that the tour, which kicks off in Israel on May 29, still has several dates that are yet to sell-out, but that he's far from panicking about the situation:
“If tickets are still available for certain shows, that by no means spells disaster. One of the things some people don't get is, I don't necessarily want to be sold out at this point; I keep trying to find tickets to sell. Every day our people are trying to fine-tune the site lines and production kills. That's my job. It's great when you can say 'sold out,' but right now I want to keep finding tickets to sell. That's the game.
"She's at the top of her game and she ain't goin' away.”
