Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball Trek Is Top Grossing Female Tour of 2012

Even though she was plagued by protestors on the Asian leg of the Born This Way Ball tour, Lady Gaga was still laughing all the way to the bank. She placed No. 5 overall on Pollstar’s Top 50 Worldwide Tours for the first half of 2012. While rockers such as Roger Waters, Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay placed ahead of her, along with Cirque du Soleil, Gaga is the female with the top-grossing tour so far. And guess what? She hasn’t even hit Europe or her native North America yet.

But that’s not the extent of the good news. The BTWB tour is on (the right) track to becoming one of the highest grossing tours ever.

The fact that every show of the Asian leg sold out helped her achieve these distinctions and projections. A Western act has not sold out each date of a tour in years. Let’s not forget that the Jakarta show, which was sold out to several tens of thousands of little monsters, was canceled outright due to religious extremists lodging threats against her and the show. So Gaga is making a killing with this tour, even with a cancellation. She’s only burned through one leg of the BTWB tour thus far, with many more to come. Onward and upward.

Congrats to Lady Gaga on being the Queen Bee of touring!
