Beyoncé continues to set records with her ‘Renaissance Tour’, a solo tour that marked the singer’s return to the road solo after a 7-year wait.
The Renaissance tour began in Sweden, and toured Europe with a single visit to Spain. After finishing her run on the stages of the old continent, accumulating earnings of more than 150 million dollars, Beyoncé crossed the Atlantic to sing in front of audiences in her native United States.
Back in North America, we’ve seen shows to match, with an even more dedicated audience. According to Chart Data, Queen B has grossed more than $461 million at the time of writing, surpassing Madonna’s Sticky & Sweet Tour from 2008 to 2009, which grossed $411 million.
The numbers for the Renaissance tour could still increase, as the artist has just played a new concert in Inglewood and still has Vancouver, Seattle, Arlington, Houston, New Orleans and Kansas City to go. Earlier this May, Forbes estimated that Beyoncé could earn more than $2 billion.
Beyoncé is competing with Taylor Swift herself for the record for the highest-grossing tour in history. Both artists have the highest-grossing shows at the moment, and a lot of dates to go, so the race will be very tight between the two pop queens.
