Beyoncé racks up over $100m in ticket sales...

Billboard has named Beyoncé the 'biggest female touring act in the world' after she managed to pull in over $100m in ticket sales for her sold-out 'Formation' tour.
Sales for Beyoncé’s upcoming stadium tour have been deemed “beyond fantastic,” by Arthur Fogel, chairman of Live Nation Global Touring, promoters of Bey’s 'Formation' world tour. Taylor Swift's '1989' tour last year topped all artists at $250 million gross and 2.3 million attendance to 83 shows, according to Boxscore. However, she did not play stadiums exclusively. The report states that only one act, The Rolling Stones, played all stadiums in 2016, and only Coldplay has joined Beyoncé in rolling out a full-on stadium tour for 2016 - so far. I wish they could have added Rihanna to the list as well but at least no one can say she didn't try.
