Rihanna Ranks No.1 In Touring Revenue

While Kanye West is canceling shows because of poor ticket sales, Rihanna is selling out concerts. Her Diamonds World Tour has been ranked No.1 in touring revenue.


Rihanna ranks at No. 1 on Hot Tours with sales reported from her Diamonds world tour. The Diamonds tour, in support of Rihanna’s 2012 album Unapologetic, kicked off on March 8 in Buffalo, N.Y. and played U.S. and Canadian arenas through May 7, closing with a packed house at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. With revenue from the European dates added, the tour’s overall gross passed the $100 million mark from more than 1.2 million sold tickets.

Following the run through Europe, the Barbadian singer spent September and October on brief jaunts through markets in Asia, Australia/New Zealand and South Africa as well as stops in Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv. She is currently on the road for a final North American trek that wraps on Nov. 15 in New Orleans.
