Rihanna Ranks No.1 in Touring Revenue


Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour ranks No.1 in touring revenue...

From Billboard
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.

Still not better than Beyonce

@1:44 Yes it is Rihanna does not have to fake ticket sales to stay relevant.

Beyoncé final count on her tour will indeed out sale Rihanna trust that. Plus Beyoncé's concerts are very much more better. Think about this, Rihanna has been on tour for over a year now so she should have at least sold 100 million.

Did, nt her husband say numbers don, t lie. Deal. Beyonce u r the weakest link. Let, s go FSU!!!!!!!

If Beyonce tours are always so called sold out in 10 seconds why is there a need to wait for a final count ? They should have been able to do that math 10 seconds after tickets went on sale right ?

Expect doctored numbers released from Beyonce camp in 5,4.....

It's just sad that she doesn't respect her fans enough to show up on time. Ain't mad at her hustle, though.

Good for her she work hard, and of course Beyonce has added dates to her Tour because she will be dam if she let Rihanna out do her especially since Beyonce have had Pepsi riding with her all the way.
If she did this good and has no talent as her haters,say then Beyonce should double this, since shes feel shes the the best in everything.

So all of that talk about Beyonce when it was Rihanna bringing it in. Even with all of the bad press about missing shows and how Beyonce is being sold as if she's the 2nd coming of Michael Jackson.

Bulk sales - believe what you want but rest assured all these numbers are padded for all Roc Nation clients.

Good for RiRi....NOW if she would just show in time for an INTERVENTION or REHAB, hell...I'd pay to see THAT.....
On a side note.....Bey and Jay STILL win because all the money this carnival whore brings in helps support /pad the Carters lavish life style.....she isn't Bey's competition.....she is just "the help"..they own her ass.....

My comment was previously deleted so I know for sure it's true - although it's actually quiete obvious and anyone with a brain can work this out for themselves

Bleachy and camel do not own Rihanna.. Jayz is just another artist & mascot on roc nation, just like rihanna is. Jayz is not an owner, he is just a mascot just like he was for barclays centre. t's other ppl behind the scenes who own and run roc nation. Rihanna is actually making way more for the company than jayz is, and has been for the past few years.

Anonymous said...

Rihanna is the biggest artist Jayz has and he have over
thirty Artist. Roc Nation has writers,producers the whole nine yards and less see if they can buy Beyonce a hit.
Since they have got it all.

I just can see how her making this much money on tour, and many
have tried to drown her with their negativity. She is really doing her thing and she has been called all the names in the book. People just want to try and keep her down.

Anonymous said...

People need to take a positive attitude toward a working girl,no matter who she is.
Many have given her such a hard time and for what. They though she wanted that camel but she did not. Many was upset over her dating Chris,that is over with .
So perhaps she will be at peace after this tour is over and she can settle her hot a** down and reflect.

You go Rihanna because work has never Killed anybody.

Next month this time the tour will be over,and then she can take that break.
However she is on a break now in Barbados. What will the final tour count be. I hope she stay focus and keep on doing what she love doing.

People love making up things on her,to try and make her look bad,,
and trying to throw them poison darts at her.

Good for her. Somewhere Beyonce seethes. Lmao

I feel like Beyonce only added dates cuz she knew Rihanna was out selling her. Waiting for everyone to drop their album so she can debut a #1 album cuz competition is gone. This is how Bey stays on top. Doin stuff late so she seem and feel like she is the best.

Anonymous said...

It's funny how Rihanna works to the bone, yet beyonce still ends up with a shit load of money! Plus Beyonce's concerts are 10 times better anyone who says otherwise are bold face liars!

Honey Bee said...

LOL!!!! She works and tries half as much as Bouncy , but somehow she always on TOP!

Life's a bitch ain't it Bouncy!

LMAO!

Go Rhianna , the new Yodelling Queen

@11:12 her concert made me want to leave early...

I can't be mad at Rihanna... although her concerts suck (I can hear her lip sync on my iPod and get more enjoyment out of watching popcorn pop in the microwave), she is absolutely trashy, she has horrible business manners, can't sing, can't dance, can't even GET to her own concerts on time... the only people I blame for her rise to fame are the rediculously sheepish fans who continue to support her. Industry pushed or not, I can't be mad at her...only her stans.

IT IS NOT HARD WORK TO DANCE AND DRESS HALF NAKED ON STAGE...NOT HARD WORK.ADD LIP SYNCING AND YOUR JOB IS EVEN EASIER...LOL

lolol at the half as hard are more then Beyonce comments. Rhi Rhi sings and tours for the CARTERS and don't get it twisted. Keep it up Rhi Rhi!

Anonymous said...

love or hate her, this is rihanna's time and her popularity shows no signs of letting up any time soon. she's doing something right to have so many hits and break so many records and have so many people show up to her concerts. whatever formula it is, it's working for her and she's making the most of it and enjoying the ride.

Anonymous said...

Keep dreaming. Rihanna does not tour for the Carters, don't get it twisted. Only an idiot who doesn't understand composition of Roc Nation or what management is all about would think that...or just a simple sheeple stan, not much difference between the two

Yall talk all that ish about RiRi you want but she is that bish! Yall love her arse because she is straight up being herself and dont give a uck about an image and people are intrigued by her boldness. Gotta love this chic!

Bow down to the GREAT Caribbean Queen, bitches!

Is Jay not her Mangaer? Is she not signed to his touring venture with Roc Nation? If Yes is the answer to any of those questions then the Carters are eating off her! Bottom line

Anonymous said...

12:15 Yes,yes and yes,but think about it,Rihanna has been consistence ,in making for sure shes selling music albums and singles. And she has reached another Milestone in Her tour Power,
see Beyonce has crossed the 100 Million mark and she has done the same thing, and she did it at a younger age then beyonce did.
It is okay for her to have a manager, and remember jayz is the fellow who first signed her and gave her a chance to be the super star she is today. And no matter how many ways you and many tries to rain on her parade the facts will always out run and out do the a/h who can't stand seeing her succeed against all odds.
Rihanna is making for sure that she works hard to keep Jayz and Beyonce Percent paid up, and after all ,she has so many irons in the fire that she can keep doing things like signing with Budweiser and that along will pay Jayz them,and then some, stay Bitter.

She has positioned herself very nicely, thank u very much.

Anonymous said...

There are so many who are seen as so much better then she is,
let us see how they fair on the tours when all the tickets are
finally counted. See it's impossible to out hate her haters, but deep
down her fans will forget about winning the fight just as long as we win the war.
Winning is her having a song with Eminem that has just went #1 in the UK Making her have 7 number ones in seven years there.

Anonymous said...

Winning is being the artist who has sold a staggering Twenty Million in the UK,with 14 Million being singles and 6 Million being
albums and they say she can't sell albums smh.
The reason they say she can't sell albums is they hate her so long and hard , that it't to much that she can sell albums and singles.
Her album Talk that Talk sold 500,000 first week world wide, and went on to sell a Million in the first month,making it her fastest to reach a Million Copies so fast., for her.
And out of seven albums 6 has platinum in the Us ,not to mention what she has sold in other places. And since people insist on trashing her, her fans has to do their best to shine some light on her career.
Her doing this good on tour will be talked down and trashed so bad by her haters , that people will forget that she did so well.
But its all good,because the more the haters go after her because shes not like any other, the better it will be for Rihanna and her Career,going forward. Haters love digging in junk to try and make it seem bad for her.
And grant you she isn't perfect, shes far from it, but she does her best.

Anonymous said...

When she do good and make a milestone,like this her haters are surfing and as mad as four dogs tied together.
When she can do things like this on her tour that has been trashed so bad, with late to posing at the mosque without permission the haters,get mad because if her numbers had came in way less the haters would be flocking to this post like fleas on a dirty dog back.
But this is Positivety and they can 't stand it.

This amount does not include her final tour stops count
does not include
The south african stadium dates, the middle east dates, the second leg of the USA dates, the Australia and NZ dates.
If her count is bigger then Beyomce is , it will be hell to pay.
