Justin Timberlake has one of the most successful tours of the year (thus far). According to Pollstar, who released their mid-year tally recently, Timberlake's recent trek has grossed $110.2 million to place him at no.3 on the tally.
Timberlake follows One Direction and The Rolling Stones.
"A total gross of $131.5 million puts One Direction ahead of The Rolling Stones, Justin Timberlake, Bruce Springsteen and others on our Top 100 Worldwide Tours for the first half of the year. Playing 31 shows in 17 cities, the boy band sold 1,630,502 tickets at an average price of $80.65," reports Pollstar. "But not all tours are equal when studying box office results. Some acts play more shows while others play far fewer gigs but charge more money for tickets. Many variables come into play when building the statistical charts that will be studied, cited and quoted during the decades ahead."
With 110.2 million grossed from 55 shows in 44 cities, selling more tickets than the Rolling Stones, but fewer than One Direction, Justin Timberlake comes in at no.4 when looking at North American dates only.
"Having played 21 shows in 17 cities, Timberlake sold 295,527 tickets total for a final gross of $33.9 million," reports Pollstar.
Timberlake has been touring in support of his two part release "The 20/20 Experience."
