World Tour Puts Madonna Over The Top

Madonna! This is the name and person that topped everyone in 2012. Madonna was named the biggest money maker in music in 2012, earning $34.6 million+ with a world tour (The “MDNA” Tour, which was 2012’s biggest tour) that helped her bring home “Big Bank” honors. The tour itself helped usher in an estimated $32 million – 93.5 percent of her revenue.


Second place was Bruce Springsteen with $33.4 million in revenue (which was also primarily driven by touring, playing to sold-out stadiums and arenas). Bruce also released a No. 1 album, “Wrecking Ball,” in 2012.  92 percent of Springsteen’s revenue also came from live shows where strong merchandise sales also boosted takings.

Justin Bieber came in 10th place with $16 million; with an estimated $10 million coming from his sold-out “Believe” arena tour. The full list can be seen at
