Most successful music tours worldwide 2020

At the top of the list of most successful worldwide tours in 2020 was Elton John, whose tour generated a gross revenue of 87.1 million U.S. dollars, despite the tour being postponed due to the coronavirus epidemic. Fans are expected to use their tickets for the revised tour in 2021.

First in the list in terms of revenue was international star Elton John, whose 2019 tour generated 212 million dollars, alongside the success of 'Rocketman', a biographical musical drama about the musician's life, which received three Golden Globe nominations for the 2020 awards. Other successful tours in the list included those by Celine Dion and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, as well as U2 who outranked popular singers Ariane Grande and Michael Buble. However the impact of COVID-19 was clear, as most concerts were cancelled or postponed, hugely denting revenue.
