Last year, Taylor Swift set a historic record and became the first ever artist to gross over $1 billion with a single tour.

Coldplay is set to join her in this exclusive club this year, as their current tour has already grossed $811M and still has 43 more shows to go (at an average of $7.67M per show so far).

 

As the touring business continues to grow and expand, $1B tours will most likely occur more regularly. But who do you think will be the next artist to achieve a $1B tour?

Bayoncé could do it if she tried, but she doesn't care.

 

Pink could as well.


Adele did mention that she would do a world tour in her next album cycle, maybe her?

 

U2, AC/DC, Rolling Stones and Roger Waters could all do it if they do an extensive farewell tour like Elton John did.

The three names that come to mind are Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles. They all could do it with enough dates, like Coldplay. 

 

I wouldn't expect Beyoncé to go on a 100+ dates tour though, so the other two are more likely, even though she has the biggest average gross of the 3. Harry Styles might become a very serious contender, as his last tour made him a very big touring force. If his next album is successful, it could very well do $1B with 100 dates or so.

I do think Beyonce and Justin Bieber are able to do it, but they don't go on really long tours. 

Maybe BTS? depends on how their next comeback will perform.

Beyoncé used to when she was younger and had no kids/only 1 kid. Of course mothers can tour but it's harder when you have multiple kids that you want to be present for. Also, I think the grind of constantly touring with the kind of act she is has wore her down a bit, mentally and physically.

Beyoncé if we demolish the cecred labs, take Julius' camera and kidnap jay-z 

:laugh: y'all gotta understand this woman's strong resolve. Ain't nothing or nobody making her do anything she don't want to do or is stopping her from doing what she want to do.

 

If she actually wanted that billion dollar grossing, 50leven date having, years long tour she would do it. She would've been did it. Cut her knees/legs some slack... ****, she tired lol

No one except coldplay and maybe taylor if she did again ..for a long time to come. All other names being mentioned above are washed up stars who have spent 15+ years in the industry now..
