Madonna Is Top Music Earner of 2012


Madonna Is Top Music Earner of 2012

Madonna, 52, was named the biggest earner in music of 2012 today. Her world tour alone helped her rake in $34.6 million.

Madonna also snagged the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Magazine’s annual list of 40 top money makers for the second time. 2012’s biggest tour was her 88 date “MDNA” tour, which earned approximately $32 million, 93.5% percent of Madonna’s revenue.

Bruce Springsteen also released a No. 1 album, and his live show revenues made up 92% of his earnings.

“When it comes to making the biggest score, the most money always comes from high-paying live performances,” Billboard’s editorial analyst Glenn Peoples said about the list.  “Ironically, the most popular touring artists are usually well past their peaks on the album sales charts.”
