Rihanna is No. 1 On HOT TOURS Billboard!!


Manchester Arena and O2 Arena, the two largest indoor arenas in the U.K., dominate this week’s Hot Tours rankings with concert box office totals reported from the final quarter of 2011. Eight of the 10 top-grossing tours in this week’s tally are based on the reported grosses from these two arenas.

Rihanna is No. 1 with ticket sales revenue from the final European leg of her Loud Tour that began in June 2011 and wrapped in December. Included in her reported totals are seven headlining performances at O2 Arena during the final two months of 2011 (Nov. 13-15, Dec. 1, 20-22). More than 116,000 fans attended the seven London shows with tickets sales totaling £5.3 million ($8.5 US$). The Manchester Arena also reported three Rihanna concerts, adding £2 million ($3.1 US$) to the native Barbadian’s $12.6 million combined box office gross that lands her this week’s top ranking. In addition to these two U.K. arenas, the 15,000-seat O2 World in Hamburg, Germany also reported ticket sales from its Loud Tour performance on Dec. 4 that drew a sellout crowd of 13,409.
