Rihanna’s “LOUD” Tour RAKES in $90M As Top Hip-Hop/R&B Act + Usher, The Throne And Sade ALSO Rake In The Tour Millions

Rihanna’s ”LOUD” concert was the highest grossing Hip-Hop/R&B tour for the 2011 year, taking in over $90 million dollars.  Come inside to find out how tours from Usher, Sade, and Kanye West/Jay-Z fared inside….. 

According to POLLSTAR, which is well known for ranking the Top 25 Worldwide Tours for 2011, Rihanna is the Queen of the R&B Pack with $90M in ticket sales.  She wrapped up another tour and went on her LOUD tour for 6 months all this year. 

U2 was the #1 grossing act with $231M and youngin’ Taylor Swift grossed over $104M.  While these aren’t the amounts the celebs get to take home themselves, they definitely get a hefty chunk of it after their crews, management and third party promo companies are all paid.

Sade brought in $83 million dollars, followed by Usher with $59M and The Throne (which only toured a little over 2 months) with $48M.

Congrats to all the big money makers!
