Lady Gaga’s Joanne World Tour is predicted to gross over $100 million by Billboard. Billboard’s Boxscore reports that the first five shows have earned a total of $8.7 million and if the tour continues in this way, a total of over $100 million will be earned by the end of the 59 dates across stadiums and arenas.
Billboard estimates that, based potential earnings from both the arena and stadium events, her Joanne World Tour could potentially top $100 million in earnings from nearly 1 million tickets sold. Lady Gaga’s previous tour, ArtRave: The Artpop Ball, brought in $83 million from 74 shows.
The Joanne World Tour tour saw her first headlining appearance, however, at Edmonton’s eleven-month-old arena Rogers Place, logging $1.4 million in sales from 15,002 sold tickets on Aug. 3. She did perform in the city twice before, though, with stops during the Monster Ball and Artpop Ball tours at Rexall Place, now known as Northlands Coliseum.
The Joanne World Tour’s first night at a U.S. building came on Aug. 5 at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Wash. The concert grossed $2.1 million with an attendance of 19,296 – a 36% increase on the turnstile count over her last performance in the venue during 2013’s Born This Way tour. And with a top ticket price of $251 compared to $175 four years ago, the gross was an even higher percentage, jumping 72% this year compared to her Born This Way performance.
The fourth venue included in this tally is The Forum in Inglewood, Calif. that racked up $3.6 million in revenue from a two-night stand on Aug. 8 and 9. The combined attendance count for both nights at the Los Angeles-area arena reached 28,567.
Lady Gaga is ranked No.4 in Billboard’s Hot Tours ranking behind touring force U2, Florida Georgia Line and Iron Maiden. The tour is expected to end on December 18th at The Forum in Los Angeles.
