Written by Chief Editor.

Elton has been named as the highest grossing touring artist of 2019 so far, beating the likes of BTS, Drake, and Ed Sheeran.

The former, who has been doing a series of Farewell Yellow Brick Road shows, grossed £64.7m from 56 concerts between November last year and May this year.

 He was closely followed by P!nk — the only female solo performer in the Top 10 — who raked in £64.1m from 39 shows in the same period, according to a mid-year report Pollstar.
 
Sheeran was the only other British solo artist to break the Top 10, with £49.8m.
 
Justin Timberlake, Metallica, and Fleetwood Mac were also among the most lucrative acts.
