Beyonce and Jay-Z’s joint tour grosses $250 million usd
The 48-date tour began in in Cardiff, Wales on June 6, rolled through Europe for 18 shows before crossing the Atlantic for another 30 shows in North America, wrapping in Seattle on October 4.
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s epic four month, time zone spanning tour grossed $US254 million according to data from Pollstar.
The tour sold 2,169,050 tickets for an average of 55,617 per show; each show’s average gross was $US6,514,120.69. The biggest payday was a two-night stand in Atlanta, which grossed $US14.1 million.
Just days after the tour started, the duo surprise-released their first joint album, “Everything Is Love”.
And the couple’s marriage – so intimately documented on the trio of albums that began with Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” continued with Jay’s “4:44” and concluded with “Everything Is Love” – was unquestionably centre stage during the shows.
