From 1985 to 2020, the artist Madonna has performed no less than 11 major tours, with the most shows performed during the MDNA Tour in 2012. This was also the tour that made her earnings cross a billion gross. To this date, Madonna is the highest-grossing solo artist in the history of American music. Her concert tours alone have earned her more than $1.5 billion, and that number will probably only grow in the foreseeable future.
Other than official tours, Madonna has also performed in several one-off concerts, benefit concerts, and musical festivals. While her performances and music did gain a lot of criticism, each concert was well-attended and generated very favorable reviews. Billboard has even given Madonna a Backstage Pass Award for pulling off the highest-grossing tour, which was the Re-Invention World Tour in 2004. The ticket sales for this tour amounted to almost $125 million US dollars. Madonna’s world tours also broke many world records, some of them being her own previous ones.
