Here is an updated list of the top 10 highest grossing female tours of all time, based on actual gross (not gross inflated to 2017). I will try and keep this thread open and updated whenever something needs to be updated, so please post any new information you see relevant.

I wish Rihanna cared a lil more about touring and had 150shows+ for the Loud Tour or the DWT.

DWT was killing it as far as attendance and average gross but Riri always cut her tour shorts and move on to the next era...

She would have easily gotten to 250 Million+ with full South American leg and a more extensive Asian & African leg and a maybe even 2nd European leg (lord knows she was a high demand on that continent)

Adele might enter top 5 when her tour wraps up in july :alexz:

 

Let's hope :alexz: Anywhere on that list would be great. I can already imagine the gif of her opening her eyes when the show starts being in the OP :smitten:

Beyoncé :heart2:. The only one with less than 50 shows, daaamn.

 

 

Hopefully Adele ends up at #5 at the end of her tour so that makes a flawless top 5.

I still find it almost hard to believe Bey's stats with so few dates :deadbanana:

Beyoncé was irrelevant until 2013? :alexz2: 

 

Rihanna would be on that list if she did 150-200 shows during DWT like Katy & Gaga (and Bey in 2013).
