Beyonce’s ongoing I AM… World Tour has been ranked a #1 concert attraction thanks to record attendance and an unprecedented multi-leg journey. The tour, in support of Beyonce’s 2008 album “I Am… Sasha Fierce,” was ranked by Billboard’s Hot Tour rankings chart as the no.1 attraction running July 23. In the issue, Billboard journalist Bob Allen confirms the tour’s success, stating: “With reported grosses topping $36 million since the tour began, her show ranks among the top 15 grossing tours of the year, with still more dates scheduled in the fall”. Promoted by AEG Live in Europe this spring, Beyonce’s I AM… tour grossed more than $23 million in ticket sales. While Beyonce’s North American leg of the tour continues through Sunday, August 2, Music World/Columbia says the “Diva” has sold out 97% of her shows overall. Following a previously announced four-night residency at the Encore Theatre at the Wynn Las Vegas (July 30 – August 2), Beyonce is set to perform a pair of shows at the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan and open the Donbass Stadium in the Ukraine.
