Pollstar has released its annual Mid-Year recap from just four months of business rather than six, due to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down live entertainment.
The Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour ranked #1 at the mid-point of 2020. Elton made $87.1 million, with 664,749 tickets sold at 38 performances during the Mid-Year time period (Nov. 21, 2019 through May 20, 2020).
Adding those results to the previous box office counts accumulated since the tour commenced, Pollstar says, ''his multiple-year swan song on the road has produced $347.3 million in gross earnings from 2.6 million sold tickets.''
Celine Dion was second on the list, with $71.2 million grossed.
