For sure, if an artist or band is that popular, expect them to have a concert tour sooner or later. This is because they have generated a huge fan base that enabled them to attract big revenue when announced to be having a concert.
A Star is Born
Let me give you an example, Miley Cyrus, despite being a newcomer before was able to rake in 45.3 million dollars from her 70-show Best of Both Worlds concert tour back in 2007 and 2008.
The tickets were sold out just after minutes as fans of her hit TV show “Hannah Montana” vied the chance of seeing the teen superstar perform live on her first concert tour.
This was History
On the other hand, the Rolling Stones and Mick Jagger on stage for 4 decades has the record for the biggest profit generated in a tour. Believe it or not, their worldwide “A Bigger Bang” tour which ran from 2005 to 2007 had grossed to 558 million dollars.
Neither Miley nor Mick relies on concert tours alone for their income. Their music tours followed both the release of a new album. For Miley, it was the Hannah Montana 2: Meet Miley Cyrus and A Bigger Bang for the Rolling Stones. Both made more earnings from concert films that were released after their tours.
