Bon Jovi Bested by Taylor Swift for Top-Grossing Music Tour of 2013


Taylor Swift, known for her song “Sweeter Than Fiction,” took home the most cash out of any music tour in 2013.

The singer was in great company, too, finishing just ahead of Bon Jovi.

Swift grossed $112.7 million, beating legends Bon Jovi, which netted $107.3 million.

Swift’s average ticket prices were about $84, and she sold about 28,411 per show, earning roughly $2.4 million per show. She sold a total of about 1.3 million tickets on her Red tour in 2013. When you remember that she did 66 concerts this year, those numbers add up!

What’s more, Swift broke her own record for highest-grossing tour ever by a country artist. She set the previous record in 2011 with $97.7 million back in 2011.

Country star Kenny Chesney came in at No. 3, while the Rolling Stones nabbed the No. 4 spot. Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter Show rounded out the top five, grossing $76.4 million, beating hubby Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake, who came in at No. 6 with $69 million for their Legends of Summer tour.

Pink, who broke several touring records Down Under this year, came in at No. 8; and Justin Bieber earned the No. 10 spot for his lengthy Believe tour.

One Direction came in at No. 17, and Bruno Mars at 19. Other acts in the top 50 included, respectively, John Mayer, Michael Buble, Rihanna, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson, Drake, Kanye West and Lady Gaga.
